Munich, or Muenchen, is the capital city of Bavaria, Germany. Munich is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. With approximately 1.35 million inhabitants, Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg.
Munich was a major city of the Kaiser'sGermany. In the 21st Century, Munich, among other German cities, such as Berlin, Breslau and Hamburg, became world-famous for its fast changing skyline. A great number of skyscrapers were going up all over Munich, using advanced engineering methods which the Germans did not share with other countries.
During this time, Geli performed at least once as a singer in a Munich café. Her uncle was a bit disturbed by this news, as he did not find it completely respectable, even if it seemed "fun" to her at the time. It reminded him too much of the undisciplined French degeneracy he witnessed each day.
Muenchen was located near Hechingen, the site of Werner Heisenberg's program to build an explosive-metal bomb for Germany. Heisenberg managed a sustained nuclear reaction in an atomic pile but did not have enough heavy water and other modifiers to control it leading to a meltdown that irradiated a large stretch of southwestern Germany. Radiation reached lethal levels in the university town that had headquartered the project, and background levels remained high in the surrounding area including Muenchen. However, this created the perfect cover for the German nuclear program, effectively hiding it from the Race.
Despite the initial setback, much of the material was salvaged by condemned prisoners. Heisenberg's successor, Kurt Diebner, used heavy water from the Norsk Hydro facility in Norway to successfully develop an atomic bomb in early 1944. The Germans detonated this bomb at Oels outside of Breslau destroying one of the Lizard armies threatening Germany. The Race destroyed Muenchen with its own atomic bomb in retaliation for this attack. Shortly afterward, ChancellorAdolf Hitler went into a furious diatribe during a state radio broadcast, in which he swore vengeance for the nuclear attack.
