Why?? Why?? What is wrong with humanity? WW2 has to be the most tragic event in all history, mainly because of the 60 million people that lost teir lives but also for what was lost. Imagine what Berlin could have been like today if it wasn´t for the war.

Another depressing thread:

Poland did a great job of restoring cities like Breslau, Stettin and Danzig (of course there are some exceptions here and there). The rynek in Breslau's simply amazing.

But there is a lot of sad examples, you don't have to search a lot to find out.
Recently Breslau's market square is a great monument of Polish, especially Lviv's architects, because the idea of rebuilding market square was their. The rebuilding started very soon just few years after war, and then was the best time for historical rebuiling, later most of new projects was "modern"
Most of new polish population in the city after war was from "taken lands" lots of them were from Lviv.

I think most Germans would acknowledge that the Poles did a far better job of rebuilding their cities.

Gdansk is beautiful example of reconstruction... Reconstruction is a blessing for european cities! But, unfortunately, there is so little, so I'm so glad for every, even little recontruction in Europe!
