Solemn chapel is iconic testament to enduring culture

The Chapel of Reconciliation (Kapelle der Versöhnung) is on the Bernauer Stasse in the Mitte district of Berlin.

It stands strong, on a site with a long history, as a beautiful testament to human endurance.

This is the previous site of the neo-Gothic Church of Reconciliation that was built in the 1890s.

That church survived the bombings of World War II but then fell victim to the wrecking ball during the Communist reign so that the government could better reinforce the Berlin Wall.

The new Chapel of Reconciliation is part of the Berlin Wall Memorial and was built using the stone, tile and glass rubble from the original church.
