  • You must also endure something to recognize the war only defeats, but not victory and shows destruction. A Memorial.

  • I saw this Memorial when went to Cologne for a couple of days from Nuremberg. These are the ruins of the Church of St. Alban, one of the oldest churches of Cologne. It was first mentioned in documents in the 12 century. The Church was destroyed during the second world war and not restored, it made the Memorial. There is no free access, but all can be examined through the grid.

  • This Romanesque church building is destroyed in the second world war, and thereafter no longer built. For the dead of the two world wars, the ruin is today an impressive reminder and Memorial. The monument "Grieving parents" by Käthe Kollwitz is here placed in a replica of Joseph Beuys and Erwin Heerich and very impressed by the Viewer. The ruins of the church built in the rebuilt after the war, as well as enlarged Gürzenich and later also in the building of the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum. I can recommend a visit to this building! It would please me if my small contribution of experience could be somewhat helpful to you.
