German building and Soviet graffiti

The Reichstag is the home of the German parliament

The Reichstag in Berlin is the most remarkable government building that I’ve seen so far.

What’s so interesting about it? Well, some of its walls still bear the graffiti written by Soviet soldiers at the end of World War II.

But since I don’t speak Russian, I don’t know what the writings mean. I’m sure though that they’re not meant to praise Germany.

I think it’s a good move to preserve the graffiti.

They give the building character: once you’re inside the edifice you will realize that it’s a place that has gone through so much.
