German Parliament (Bundestag)

  1. JulianBashir
    The Reichstag is an edifice in Berlin, Germany, constructed to house the Diet, or parliament, (called Reichstag in German) of Imperial Germany. After opening in 1894 it served as the seat of the Diet until it was set on fire in 1933, which the Nazis used as a pretext to solidify their grip on power, oppressing dissidents and passing the Enabling Act to give Hitler dictatorial powers. In 1945, the Soviets raised the hammer and sickle flag over it in an iconic photo symbolizing victory over Nazi Germany. After World War II, it remained unused until the reunification of Germany in the 1990s, when the Bundestag, the parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany moved there and the dome was rebuilt with a new design by Norman Foster.
