In 1945, towards the end of the Second World War, the ancient City of Dresden was destroyed by massive bombardments and much of its rich architectural heritage appeared to have been obliterated forever. Over the last half-century, however, Dresden has been lovingly reconstructed with the active collaboration of its citizens. This process, now culminating in the rebuilding of the Frauenkirche (the Church of Our Lady) is documented in this unique book.
