Weather Station Kurt: A WWII-era German Weather Station in North America
Weather Station Kurt, located in far northern Newfoundland and Labradour, Canada is the only known World War II military installation conducted by Germany on the North American continent, built in 1943.
German Weather Station Kurt set up on the Hutton Peninsula, Labrador, Dominion of Newfoundland on 22 October 1943 (Bundesarchiv)
After the war, it was forgotten until its rediscovery in 1977, when geomorphologist Peter Johnson chanced upon the area upon conducting unrelated research. Today, the station is on display at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa, ON.
