Reconstruction of this church did not begin until the 1990s. It was destroyed in the firebombing of February 1945 and the ruins were left for half a century as a memorial to the victims.
The money to pay for this massive reconstruction project has come from many different sources, including numerous private contributions from all over Germany. I know some musicians in Frankfurt who have been giving benefit concerts regularly for the last decade to raise money for the rebuilding of this church.
From the outside it looks complete, but on the inside reconstruction continues. When I was there recently a large area around the church was fenced off as a construction site.
VT member german_eagle lives in Dresden and makes a point of keeping us all informed on reconstruction progress.
