Important to remember the victims of the crimes against humanity. A very moving place to visit whilst in Berlin.

Not important to remember the German victims, mostly deliberately forgotten. Berlin is no longer a German city, there is no Germany, except in the history books.

I agree the Soviets were as bad as the Nazis, thankfully the democracies won. As for the Russians, their still up to their old tricks, thankfully not to the same extent as before,  all innocent victims must be remembered.

Last time I looked at an atlas Germany was still a country and a major player in the EU. Berlin is a German city it is the capital of Germany multicultural and thriving for it would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting.
