Visible WWII Damage in Berlin

Good morning all,

Article and a picture of a wall about WWII combat damage still visible at a section of Berlin's S - Bahn rapid transit system.

Note the political philosophy involved: "Battle scenes ... left also as a warning"; "the damage remains without much effort to conceal it".

Article also mentions 2 area museums.

I post this knowing that a contrary political philosophical view is to "sanitize" battle areas frequented by the public.

Not just in Berlin

There are a number of blitzed churches left as shells in central London:
