When I first went to Berlin I found that many statues in the Tiergarten still bore the marks of the Russians triumphal shoot up after the fall of Berlin.
I have never see any pictures of this damage, I wonder if it has been repaired?
On the Pediment of the Victory Monument ,which is nearby, my son discovered a spot where a machine gun had fired on someone sheltering there. You can see the bullet holes quite clearly and feel the terror of the target although the individual was in a protected spot. Well worth a look and one of the most evocative spots I have ever found. It is on the rear pediment of the monument and is never photographed. My picture was a failure. Hooray for Digital cameras! I did not have one then.
shame the videos have been removed well here in Australia I can't see them

I can't see them either.
Yes, it seems all of the videos have been removed.
for the life of me I can't understand why anyone would want to see short videos of a film which is available at any video store in Australia. They were removed because they breached copyright. Keep up.
Shame that these videos have been removed but... using the same title on YouTube directly brings up a very interesting and varied collection of films... so thanks for that...
