In the Dutch village of Pijnacker, next to the city of Delft, they rebuilded in 2000-2001 the churchtower which collapsed on 18 april 1939.
The church originally stood at the back of the tower, but in the 19th century it was replaced by a new church, 4 meters from the tower so the tower stood alone.
In the 1939 the tower was starting to lean and a few weeks before it collapsed the stand it was leaning was 1.25.
A few weeks later it collapsed in the night of 18-19 april at 0.41 AM......
They kept the bricks (kloostermoppen) but later the local government sold it to other cities like to repair buildings (Castle Radboud in Medemblik et cetera).
In 1993 they started a campaign to reconstruct the tower and on April the 19th 2000 (60 years later) they started with reconstructing, at April the 5th of 2001 the building was finished


Here some pictures:

Just a few weeks before it collapsed

Is the reconstructed tower in Pijnacker the same height as the original? Looks somewhat shorter. Great job though, looks great!

Wroclaw is looking nicer by the day.

I think Wroclaw and Gdansk are going to be the most pleasant surprises for visitors during the Euro - meaning that they probably wouldn't expect these cities to be so fantastic good job

Wroclaw was never really on the tourist map (except for old Germans) but I think this is changing. When I was there over the summer I'm pretty sure it was Americans that were huddled around tables ordering beer in the Old Town market square. Gdansk I would say is Poland's 3rd most famous city because of the history and post WW2 politics. But both Gdansk and Wroclaw, the Germanic cities, have been painstakingly restored by the Poles. Would you happen to know how the Ukrainians are maintaining Lwow?

I haven't been, but hear Lwow/Lviv is beautiful but not that well maintained, however, the Ukrainians are doing the best they can during these hard times. Check out the Zagranice thread in the Polish Forum, tons of photos. To be fair Gdansk and Wroclaw were rebuilt but not so much according to the original, only exceptional cases. In any case, from what I saw and all the work nearing completion in both these cities, I think people will be amazed.

After all they were rebuilt in even harder times than we have now. It was unprecedented effort in then communist states and even in the whole world even if it was not 100% accurate reconstruction.

you're absolutely correct, the architects of the day had to get permission from Stalin to do anything. it took years and lots of convincing for permission to rebuild Warsaw's old town and even that had to be rebuilt in an earlier, less "bourgeois" version. Given the Hanseatic look of Gdansk and overly western look of Wroclaw, it's a miracle that so much was rebuilt, albeit modified to placate Stalin and his commie ideologues, not to mention Polish nationalist values.

So wait.... are you saying the reconstructions in Wroclaw and Gdansk have a Polish flavor to them?

yes, they were redesigned harking back to an idealized form that may have existed in a pre-partition Poland, with typically Polish accents and finishes. I am referring here to buildings that were destroyed and had to be rebuilt. Many more kamienice in Wroclaw survived intact than in Gdansk or Warsaw both of which were 90-95% destroyed and so there are many buildings in Wroclaw that still look that they did prior to the prior, despite extensive war-time damage.
