Berlin’s Martin Luther Memorial Church is for sale. Dwindling membership and increasing costs for cleaning and repair have made it a burden to the community, but who’d buy a church filled with Nazi symbols? (As you can see, SA Storm Troopers appear in unusual places.)

Another chapter in what to do with the Nazi past,  this case pushes the limits of use of Third Reich architecture.  The sale already supposes that this will no longer be a church, but what then?  Must every piece of the Third Reich be preserved?  It would be ironic that the accomplishments of the regime, which included so much destruction, would have a future.
