View Atop City Hall, Dresden, Germany
Photograph by Gordon W. Gahan

Statues look down on the rebuilt inner city of Dresden from atop City Hall. The medieval city lost tens of thousands of citizens and nearly every building to heavy Anglo-American bombing near the end of World War II. The restored Church of the Cross stands at left of center.

市政厅顶上的视野,德累斯顿,德国
摄影:Gordon W. Gahan

雕像们从德累斯顿市政厅顶上俯看着这座重建后的内陆城市。二战临近结束时,这座中世纪城市在英美盟军的狂轰滥炸下失去了成千上万的居民和几乎全部建筑物。重建后的十字教堂位于照片中心偏左的位置。
