Neue Wache

Neue Wache
The Neue Wache (New Guardhouse) was built in1816 and served as the royal guard house until the end of the monarchy in 1918. In 1930-1 it was altered to become a memorial for the fallen of WW1. It was damaged in WW2, and in the late 1950s was reconstructed as a memorial for the victims of Fascism and Militarism. After the unification, it was transformed again (in 1993) into the central official Federal memorial site for the ‘victims of war and tyranny’. The centre of the chamber is now occupied by the Käthe Kollwitz Pieta.

Remarquable composition : votre photographie est une oeuvre d'art, car elle offre une vision personnelle. Aspect graphique, projection imaginaire sur l'oeuvre du premier artiste (!), ambiance générale.
