Photographer's Note

Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedδchtniskirche at Berlin.

This protestant church was erected 1891-1895 on behalf of emperor Wilhelm II as a memorial for his grandfather Wilhelm I. The steeple measured 113 m and was Berlin's highest one then.
The church was severely damaged in an allied bomb raid in 1943.
After WW II, the nave was torn down and the ruins of the steeple (still 71 m high) left as a monument against war. The ruin was complemented by a four part new construction of nave, new steeple, chapel and foyer by Egon Eiermann between 1959 and 1963.
