Mud-brick “Old Town,” at the Oasis of Qara, western Qattara Depression. The Germans took Qara Oasis during WWII and later turned it over to their Italian allies. Legend has it, after a few weeks, the citizens of Qara petitioned the Germans to retake control of the town because the Italian forces were looting their village.
