Don't know for sure but I think it is a racing certainty to have been comprehensively smashed when the new tennants moved in!!
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
That photo is of Hitler declaring war against the United States on the 11th of December 1941 (not one of his better tactical moves) in the Reichstag. So it's a good bet that if it wasn't bombed to $*** by the time the Russians got there, it didn't last much longer is my betting.

I don't know whether the eagle was destroyed during one of these events or survived until VE Day, but, as Ned said, if it did, it was history very shortly thereafter and would have been dismantled, destroyed and disposed of.
(After all, it was a little bit too large for even the most ambitious souvenir-seeking allied soldier to take home and hang over his fireplace.)
My betting is it was destroyed during the RAF raid on the 22 Nov 1943!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
I read that the entire site was demolished & cleared in 1951 and today all there is to see is a lawn and a memorial plaque...
