Berlin Soviet War Memorials
Germany (Deutschland DE)
The Soviet War Memorials was built with marble that was taken from Hitler's Chancellory, and this memorial in Tiergarten is located nearby the Brandenburg Gate. Either side are the first two tanks that entered the city in 1945.
In Treptower Park in Treptow there is an enormous war memorial and the centrepiece is a tall statue of a soldier holding a sword in one hand, a child in the other, and perhaps most poignantly, standing on a swastika, crushing it with his foot. This memorial is dedicated to the many Soviet soldiers who lost their lives in the Battle of Berlin. There are over 5,000 people buried here is this mass grave.
