Later you sc« It in th« people themselves, . an airplane, downtown f/ "Berlin must look like an empty honeycomb. The opera is in ruins. So Is the Kaiser's place, and the Xd«n Hotel. The long rounded roof ot the Central Rullroad Station • (the Frledrichstrasse) is » skeleton o( black steel grldcrs. . In the bombed-out shell of Hit-' J«r's ornate chancellory, old men in .r*<js •«". pieces of mosiao they've chipped from the walls. The asking prtc« is one cigaret, or even a ^butt. The Russians arc carting away '•marble slabs from the walls to build > memorial.• The «pot In the garden where ' Hitler's body Is supposed to have -been burled disappeared under a pile of s«nd recently when the Russians dynamited the bunker. The Uuter Den Linden once was the proudest tree-shaded boule- . vard in all Germany Today the iUnter Den Linden is bare, nnd dust from crumbling mortar swirls in the wind across its broad pavements. The avenue looks wider thai ever because so many buildings are gone on either side. Walking East from Hie Brandcn- burger Gate, you look on the vigl\ for the American Embassy. Onlj the sheil of the embassy is there The windows are mere holes h Masonry. Inside, bricks and Uvistc girders are piled two stories high. Next on the right was Louis Ad Ion's famous hotel, once the las word in European luxury. Now up per floors are smashed clown an waits aad chimneys are jagge against the sky. The windows an doors which used to open on the Unter Den Unden are bricked tip More Trouble Looms in India solid. A wooden sign with the word "Adlon" hangs over (he former entrance, ind you come In from the resr now through a dark passage which has been shored up nke a tunnel In a, coal mine. About 50 rooms are in use again- Walk another 10 yards East and look for the Russian embassy and the big Hotel Bristol. British bombers battered them down to • their foundations In 1943. All the remains ot the buildings Is another wide gap In the skyline ot the Unter Den Unden. Here and there along the boulevard, a merchant lias reclaimed the ground floor and Is doing business there beneath the ruins of the upper stories. Unknown Soldier Urutuarded Remember the small Grecian- type building on ttie North side of th« Avenue Vhlch housed the tomb ,bf the Unknown Soldier? It i» still there but no black-booted luird o( honor slands at attention outalde any more. Through the ru»ty grilled door you can see a dry wreath on the tomb. A lew people stop in the desolate street to peek in. , Sticking out of one ruin is a steel beam some airman's bomb bent Into the shape of a question mark. Maybe the beam Is asking what happened. But If the question is when all this mess will be cleaned up, the answer is It may take 40 years. Berlin wasn't built in a day. Army engineers doubt it can be rebuilt In less than halt a century. Franklurt, Munich and Nuernberg are u badly ruined as Berlin. If not worse. The work of clearance goes 'on slowly. One plan is to make a memorial mountain of Berlin's rubble by piling It up i« the big public park called the Tiergarten. Another Is to put It, through rock crushers and remold it into building blocks. Temporary narrow gauge tracks wind through some of the worst ruins. Over these, the Germans are slowly hauling away bricks and broken masonry. When one collapsed building Is cleared away, the trscks are moved up beside another.
