Soviet War Memorial | Tiergarten

August 27, 2016

Finally collected the last in the triumvirate of bombastic, socialist realist, propagandistic soviet war memorials. This one was built within just months of the surrender of Berlin and inaugurated in November 1945; historical photos show the finished memorial with the bombed out Reichstag as a backdrop. As for the tanks, those part of the memorial were the first to reach Berlin.
