Johann Sebastian Bach played the organ at the Lutheran Church of Our Lady in Dresden, which was destroyed in the allied bombing of that city during World War II. Later, the ruins of that building became a center of protest against East German Communism. Now the church has been rebuilt, using the rubble as well as new material. Tomorrow it will be reconsecrated.
The Wall Street Journal has a fascinating story about the church and its reconstruction, including a good “reading” of the current architecture. Excerpts and pictures after the jump.
