The portico is fantastically twisted due to soft ground during construction. The entry outside are askew and creates a sense that the tower is about to fall. Inside the German SS created a very poignant sculptural image by burning the cross with Jesus, (as they did in any church they came across), leaving a burnt torso hanging mid air on the wall, lit dramatically by a single spotlight in the dim light it is a very sad and visually unforgettable document of the war. I had the pleasure of working with a post war stone mason in Canada who restored the tower as a teenager after the war.
