Sowjetisches Ehrenmal Tiergarten (Soviet Memorial)

Sowjetisches Ehrenmal Tiergarten (Soviet Memorial) Review

Built immediately after World War II, this monument stands as a reminder of the Soviet victory over the shattered German army in Berlin in May 1945. The Battle of Berlin was one of the deadliest on the European front. A hulking bronze statue of a soldier stands atop a marble plinth taken from Hitler's former Reichkanzlei (headquarters). The memorial is flanked by what are said to be the first two T-34 tanks to have fought their way into the city.
