The Frauenkirche (http://www.frauenkirche-dresden.de/en/home/).  A Lutheran Church that was bombed during WWI between February 13-15, 1945.  A close look at the picture will show some very dark stones on the building.  These are from the original and were saved   until the church was re-built and completed in 2004.
