The V&A museum, and some of the surrounding buildings, have retained the damage from the blitz. Always thought it's one of the best memorials to how close the war was to home.

A lot of Museums and other buildings in Berlin have conserved these wounds as a memorial too. The Siegessäule in the Tiergarten for example.

I saw the victory column earlier this year! The tower itself is really cool, but preserving the damage to the tower felt very symbolic and made me try to imagine where the projectiles came from. Same at the Brandenburg gate, though I mostly only saw small arms fire

I loke the way Germany has done things. Just left the scars from the world wars as a reminder. Sure nazi uniforms and such are illegal as fuck but there's a ton of fucked up shit from then left in plain view.
