A geologist riddle #15

There is a tragic connection between the following contrasting photographs, it will give you the location and the connection to geology of what happened here:


  1. Perhaps something to do with Louis Agassiz?

  2. It is actually not Agassiz´s hut on the glacier, for somebody that do not know the landscape it is maybe hard - the mountain in the background played a major role in the years 1916-1918.

  3. I am going to assume it is in the Dolomites and reflects the fighting there between the Italians and the Austrians. But I cannot place the exact location nor the significance of the hut.
