Kaiser Wilhelm Gedaechtniskirche, Berlin: 119 reviews and 224 photos


To remember the german emperor and king of Prussia Wilhelm I this church has been constructed in the years 1891 - 1895, financed by the donations of the whole german folk. This church has been destroyed during the WWII in the night of the 23.11.1943 in an air attack. The (destroyed) tower of the old church shall be a momory of god´s judgement that befall our folk during the war (these are , sorry, bad translated, the words on a memorial tablet at the church).

Another sign says, that the formally entrance hall of the church has been re-opened 1987 as a memory hall. It is a place of reminder against war and destruction and a call for reconcilation in Jesus Christ
