    To be correct the operation was hastily prepared and didn't have a name, "Operation Himmler" was invented after the war.
    Strangely, its main goal was to prevent the ww2 - by convincing the Allies to abandon the discredited Poland.

    The radio mast is still standing because the Germans were forced to quickly abandon the entire region by the fast advancing Red Army during the disastrous Vistula–Oder Offensive, and didn't have time to destroy anything.
