All over the city there are signs of WWII. Of course, most buildings are restored and repaired, but several show the marks of the bombings and of artillery. The Kaiser-Wilhelm-Memorial Church is left half-destroyed as a memorial to this destruction, but some individual buildings also still have bullet holes and smaller signs of war. This building has a sign that says "Wunden der Erinnerung", "Wounds of Memory" above the bullet holes.
