  Signs of the War.
by Kakapo2

This man without head and dotted with bullet holes is sitting in front of Martin-Gropius-Bau. It is one of the few things in Berlin that were left with the damage suffered in the bombings of World War II. Another ? and more striking and famous ? example is Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche on Kurfürstendamm.

There could not be a more suitable place, next to where the Wall once separated the East and the West, and next to the SS- and Gestapo headquarters, where all this terror originated that led to World War II and the horrors of genocide, murder and destruction.
