The hole in the eastern section of the railings around the Sun Courtyard is a result of the air raid on 31 october 1944, but the specific circumstances remain unexplained. It was the architect of Aarhus University, C.F. Møller, who insisted that the hole be preserved in the railings as a reminder of the historical events.
