Coventry, England
St. Michael’s Cathedral
02 Coventry, England

"The first target of the Luftwaffe’s Baedeker raids in the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940, this ancient Cathedral was visited by a number of chaplains after their arrival from New York in 1944. Totally destroyed, the ruins became an anteroom for entrance into the new Cathedral built in the 1950s, a moving illustration of England’s rise after the war to newness of life."
