Wiesbaden, Germany
The Russian Chapel
21 Wiesbaden, Germany - shards

“A nineteenth-century Duke of Hesse married a Russian princess of great beauty and charm. To make her happy in his own Martin Luther land, he built her a chapel of Eastern Orthodoxy. Bombs damaged the windows on the night of February 1st when a third of Weisbaden disappeared in twenty minutes time. This was the war’s only mark. A cleaning woman told me she was rushing to a shelter when a blast blew the child from her arms whom she never saw again.”
