BERLIN IN RUIN

These charming photos show the last days of Nazi Germany when the mighty power was shattered to pieces.

Taken throughout the German capital in Berlin, the devastating scene shows the train station hit by a bomb attack.

Others point out that the previously crowded streets were taken over by army tanks buried while British vehicles were driving fiercely.

One photo reveals the massacre that was once the Potsdam Station, after being hit by four heavy bombardment attacks, two by the RAF and two by the US Air Force.

Other German landmarks are in ruins.

A British First World War Mark V tank was left outside the Berlin Cathedral ruins and the Berlin Konzerthaus concert hall was also seen damaged by explosives.

A stretch of water was photographed in the postwar Berlin ruins where the underground station is located below.

The station was used as a hospital in the final days of the war but was deliberately overrun by the SS, killing everyone, in the last fanatical attempt to arrest the advancing Russian Army.

In one of the last photos taken before the war ended, a victory banner fluttered above the ruins of Berlin that were destroyed by the war in May 1945 when the Allied troops spotted.

And in another poignant moment, Corporal Russell M. Ochwad, from Chicago, mocked Adolf Hitler by saluting the Nazis on the Chancellor’s Reich balcony in Berlin.

A British and Russian soldier stood on each side while American and Russian troops cheered in the months after the German defeat.
