A journey to the past – Berlin part 2

In time of penance, the devil raises his head

This is the inner ceiling of the Emperor Wilhelm's Memorial Church in Berlin photographed in 1994. The Mosaics recall the life of Emperor Wilhelm I, and it is restored at best to give you a sense of the detailed beauty and workmanship in the tiles, amidst the physical scaring. In 1943, the church was destroyed by the British bombing campaign on Berlin. At Breitscheidplatz, only the tower and fragments of the church remain. - thebookmann
