^ Ha la la, cousin, the Soviets were so rough to build things like this up to the early 80s.
I say it's communist atheism and materialism. Those backward Communism and Nationalism... They pretend hating one other, but both are the very same in the end.
Decadence.

As soon as I saw the building, it reminded me of an episode of a favorite comic series (from Belgium, as often) inspired by the US Union army during their civil war.



You see that weird armored confederate/nazi thing with cannons? That's it.

I'm not even sure torturing mice to death would still be helpful for contemporary science, but that building should be preserved.
I actually find it interesting, as a piece of our Euro memory.

The best cities in the world for culture and lifestyle, according to expats


Quote:
For those who consider culture and lifestyle a top priority, Berlin is the best city to call home, according to the latest Expat Explorer survey from HSBC. The German capital is famous for its nightlife and art scene, and the report found that 70% of expats living there say it had a “vibrant cultural scene”. The city is also considered one of the most welcoming, as 55% of expats say the city welcomes diversity, taking the third place spot in Europe after Stockholm and Lisbon.

Fact is Berlin was pretty much like Central Paris before it was bombed out.
I saw a bunch of B&W documents, dated 1920s, 30s and early 40s.
Building shapes and old urbanity were fine, well aligned, disciplined and decorated, just as the strict Napoleonic bourgeois thing.

Crazy Adolf (who supposedly or basically was a Jewish Austrian or something nuts according to some urban legend here, but I don't really care about silly hearsay, lol) wanted our city destroyed before it was freed from nationalism, but the faithful German governor in charge of the city never obeyed him. He never would burn down the city... That was something sweet of him.

We won't forget about this. I'd rather recall good people, forgetting the useless/bad ones.
