"A Famous/Infamous Place Gets Updated" History - World War II Tip by grishaV1

History - World War II, Berlin: 80 reviews and 244 photos

  2004 vs. 2003
by grishaV1

Remember where the book burning took place in 1933? It was at Bebelplatz on Unter den Linden across from the university of Humboldt. Before you might have seen my tip that showed a foto of the monument plaque that told the story of when and how that, that pic was taken in early 2003. This pic was taken in January 2004 and you see its under construction. Building is taking place for a new museum on the site. The monument plaques were lifted and will be replaced at a later date.
