The Frauenkirche is one of Dresden's largest and most beautiful churches. The piece played is Bach's Toccata in d minor. The church's magnificent Silberman, built during the time of Bach, was completely destroyed during the World War II bombing of Dresden.

In four raids between 13 and 15 February 1945, 722 heavy bombers of the British Royal Air Force and 527 of the United States Army Air Forces dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the city of Dresden, capital of the German state of Saxony. Considered a cultural landmark of little or no military significance, the attacks were criticized as indiscriminate and not proportionate to the commensurate military gains. After decades of hard work Dresden has remade itself becoming the beautiful city that you can see in the artistically elaborated pictures by Sergey Larenkov. All rights reserved to copyright owners.

www.qmoayad.com Dresden was almost completely destroyed in February of 1945. For decades many of its grand buildings lay in ruins - so also its main landmark, the Church of Our Lady - until East and West Germany finally got reunited again in 1990. From then onward the German government focused its energies and resources to rebuild the city and bring it back to its original glory. In less than 20 years they have almost completed the task - Dresden and the Church of Our Lady have been resurrected and risen from the ashes.
