Frauenkirche: Can We Learn?
The Frauenkirche is a Lutheran church in Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony. It is considered one of the finest examples of Protestant architecture, and has one of the largest domes in Europe.
Built in the 18th Century, the first church building was Catholic until it became Protestant during the Reformation. The church was destroyed in the bombing of Dresden during WWII. The remaining ruins were left for 50 years as a war memorial until the church was finally reconstructed in 2006.
Elisabeth was born in Dresden and lived in the East German city for many years. Her story of the history of the Frauenkirche, including its destruction and ultimate rebuilding from a heap of decaying ruins, is told as someone who experienced the incredible determination of the German people to restore this church. What did the Germans learn from the Frauenkirche, and what are the lessons for the rest of the world.
