t is considered a magnificent testimony to Protestant religious architecture, has one of the largest stone church domes north of the Alps and is considered one of the largest sandstone buildings in the world. The Dresden Frauenkirche was built from 1726 to 1743 to a design by George Bähr and became an emblem of both the Dresden Baroque and the famous city skyline. At the end of World War II, it was severely damaged by the firestorm raging in Dresden during the air raids on Dresden on the night of February 13-14, 1945, and collapsed, burned out, on the morning of February 15. In the GDR, the ruin was preserved and left as a memorial against war and destruction.
