Wow, I can see quite a few Fallschirmjager helmets there, I wonder what happened to all those helmets, most probably melted down for scrap metal 😮

Many were destroyed, or just detiorated before being cleared away. Many were also thrown into trenches and shell holes and simply filled in. Some of these have been discovered recently, as can be seen under youtube. There are other cases when helmets were converted into pots, pans and other household items for civil use.
