Man on bike: This is the Soviet war memorial.
Woman on bike, with kid in the back: Oh. Are they building it ?
Maybe she was suffering from a bit of sunstroke.
But yea someone may want to put up a plaque or something contextualizing all of those gold-plated quotes from Stalin, especially to help out the folks who think Soviet memorials are being built in 2006. I’ve been here relatively often in the past few months and each time I’m blown away that this still exists in the middle of Treptower Park. This time I remembered to bring my camera and working batteries. 5000 soldiers are buried at this memorial.
