And since commies avoid participation of the people, nobody should ask them either.

You know there's one thing that's a bit strange............. Brittish bombings of German cities like Berlin, Cologne, Magdeburg and Dresden are war-crimes, but the German blitzes on London, Coventry and other cities aren't called war-crimes anywhere I read.

I think people, quite rightly, tend to regard the German bombing of Allied cities as war crimes anyway, along with everything else that the Nazi regime did. In the UK, at least, much is made of the moral superiority of the Allies compared with the Nazis. Something that dents that moral superiority is the deliberate targetting of German civilians and the wholescale destruction of German cities at the end of the war. Some people don't agree with it. Some people think it's fine because 'they started it'. It's an on-going debate, but I doubt many people think that the German bombing raids weren't war crimes too.

This is a widespread opinion in Britain, in my experience anyway. Townplanners in the 1950s and 1960s did more fundamental damage to our cities than the Nazis could've ever dreamt of.

Really like this angle. Gives you a great idea of what has been created. The rebirth of an old narrow street.

I notice that the two lion sculptures on the building on the left are blackened - are they original?

Actually large parts are still original. After the firestorm the buildings were pretty much gutted, the walls were mostly standig though.

That's good to know, I thought only the Frauenkirche still had original parts because it was left as rubble for decades.

You notice the the entrance gate with the lions?

Thanks, that's interesting. I am pleased to see that more of the original Dresden has survived than I initially thought, it conveys a greater sense of historical continuity.

but don't be misunderstanding. the schloss was one of very few important historic buildings that had any recognizeable structures remaining. the city and its buidlings were nearly all pulverized. One cannot say that much of anything truly survived the bombing.

Great photos! But good lord, that modern building on the corner looks so ugly and out of place!
