Another article in Die Welt about a city reconstructing its pre-war city center. This time, it’s Kaliningrad, currently a Russian city that was the capital of East Prussia. The website set up by lead architect Arthur Sarnitz is rife with plans and photographs of the restoration, with more to come (perhaps an English version as well).

[ETA] The oral history seminar of Polish and Ukrainian Studies at Viadrina has a collection on the oral history of Königsberg/Kaliningrad.


Some of my thoughts on Germany’s mania to recover the architectural past at Cliopatria.
