Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

This is one of the most poignant memorial of World War II that I saw in Berlin. It is a short walk from the hotel we stayed in, Swissotel, which I wrote about HERE.
The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church incorporates the bell tower of the original 19th-century structure (ruined in World War II) into a dramatic glass and concrete church built in 1961. This memorial is located in the former East Berlin. The original church was first damaged on December 23rd, 1943 and completely destroyed in air-raids in April 1945.
