Aw, that's a pity. Even though it kinda looks like a pile of vomit, but still.

Another one from Dresden, Germany. The Zentraltheater was a neo-baroque monstrosity. Not exactly pretty or precious, but sad nevertheless since almost none of these over the top buildings was preserved:

Sure these are the same buildings? Both, the theatres and churches, seem to have very little in comon! Size, style and groundplan changed almost completely.

Kristallnacht saw the destruction in a single night of more than a thousand Synagogues, the ransacking of tens of thousands of Jewish businesses and homes, and more than 200,000 Jewish people were rounded up and taken to concentration camps. It marked the beginning of the systematic eradication of a people who could trace their ancestry in Germany to Roman times, and served as a prelude for the Holocaust that was to follow.

You are kind of obsessed with Nazi Germany, are you?

Just for the record:

This beautiful synagogue of Berlin was completely destroyed by Allied bombings, not by Kristallnacht!
And the Synagogue in my homecity Trier was as well.

Paulinerkirche Leipzig, the church of the university, was destroyed by the Commies in 1968:




The new structure preserves the shape of the old church:

King Alexander bridge ( also known as Zemunski bridge) in Belgrade, was sacrificed by Serbian army in 1941 to delay the entrance of the German army in the city.

years of kapitalism destoyed as least as much as communism did, especially in the 60's. 70's and 80's. In western countries people thought as well that the new and the modern could replace all those buildings people truely loved. In the town I grew up, the town hall has been replaced twice since the 1980's, my old school disappeared, as did a few old churches, a windmill has been replaced, the shopping center has been renovated a million times and new squares, streets and buildings were constructed that now remain empty or serve as the backside of another (and yet newer) aim to create a new Utopia. The only reason all this happened is the money that could be made by constucting no matter what on the spot the old buildings stood. In communism it is at least someone to blame for, in kapitalism no-one (or everybody) is responsible for the loss of all this.
