Many buildings had to be rebuilt after WWII, true?

I didn't expected Warsaw to be so so clean and so nicely renewed.

My mother returned to Warsaw in February, 1945, after liberation. She was unable to track down the place where the house she lived in before the war had stood. The entire district was a sea of rubble - it was even impossible to tell where the streets had been. And this was not the Ghetto, but simply downtown Warsaw, bombed by the Germans in 1939, badly damaged in the Polish uprising of 1944, and then systematically razed by the Germans.

The main part of the city, on the left bank of the Vistula River, was 90% destroyed. At first, the Polish authorities thought of abandoning the ruins of Warsaw, and transferring the capital elsewhere. But the citizens began to return, settling in the ruins and making ramshackle repairs. Against all odds, the city came back to life once again. The authorities therefore decided to embark upon a huge program of reconstruction.
