The ruin of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church seems to serve as a symbol of Berlin's resolve to rebuild the city after the war and a constant reminder of the destruction of war, though I expect it stirs complex and varied feelings for some who see it.

The new "church tower" holds a World Shop that sells assorted new-age trinkets, including African spirit masks. Not what I'd expected to see in a church!
