Berlin Soviet War Memorial Treptower (#2689)

Berlin Soviet War Memorial Treptower  (#2689)
The hammer and sickle symbol of the Soviet Union, on the gates. In the 1990 treaty related to the reunification of East and West Germany, Germany assumed maintenance responsibilities for all war memorials, including this one. The agreement also specified that changes to the memorial must include consultation with the Russian Federation. See Wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_War_Memorial_(Treptower_Park)

It's barely mentioned in any materials I came across, luckily the Rick Steves guide books are good on mentioning about such places.
