Well, bad interpretation without any evidences, Stalin did not decide everything, he had rather more important things on his mind.

I've been having a blast for the last couple of hours playing around with this tool, which automatically colorizes black and white photos. The results are varied, but here are some that turned out quite well of Chemnitz (I used the black and white photos posted on the previous page):











And here are some from Berlin that I found on Google:





Original for comparison:



The Kaiser got some colour as well, although as you can see the tool works best on landscapes:

That is Nicholas II riding with Wilhelm. On July 18, it will be 100 years since he and his family were murdered.

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but to what extent was Reutlingen (in Baden-Württemberg) destroyed in the war and/or affected by post-war development? I know it was bombed, but not to what extent, especially with regards to the oldtown. Is it worth a visit architecturally?

This city was heavily bombed and while some of its street patterns were maintained following WWII, it is a far cry from its neighbor Tubingen in terms of appearance before the war. Some sections are quite wonderful and the Lutheran Church is quite spectacular. Worth a drive through.

Stuttgart is actually still very beautiful, the city centre is just ugly. The city frustrated the Allies immensely, because it was spread out across multiple valleys and they consistently failed to strike the city centre. Poor visibility, the confusing terrain, and German diversion/confusion tactics (such as building a fake replica of the main station outside the city) meant that many of the built up city areas are still pretty well preserved. If not for a few raids in mid-late 1944 (one of which unfortunately created a firestorm), even the Altstadt area would have escaped significant damage.

I remember reading part of the old Baedeker Travel Guides that described the 'scenic', 'handsome' streets of pre-war Stuttgart. And there are still a lot of almost homogeneously 19th/early 20th century streets, especially in the west and south of the city.

Germany was unified officially for the first time in the year 962, but German unions also happened before that time.
(Karolinger Reich, Franken Reich)

That lasted until 1806 with Vienna the center of the commonwealth.
The states ruled "relatively speaking" autonomous with causes confusion today.
The commonwealth lasted until 1806.
A smaller commonwealth was again re-created 1871 without the Nederland and Austria.
Germany still sees itself officially a commonwealth today. There are 16 "independent" regions.
The same counts for Austria with nine "independent" regions

and Switzerland with 26 "independent" "Kantone".
