My great-grandfather was there. My grandfather was there. My mother was there. And last year I was there. Standing in front of the Reichstag building was very moving and emotional. As was visiting war memorials.
This colored footage of Berlin just three month after the World War II has ended is amazing. The areal shots at the end of the video of the destroyed city are mind blowing. Look at all the people involved in restoration. Look at all the military presence.
Found over at kottke.
