Dresden Frauenkirche Books And Pictures

Welcome to our Lübeck Haus Bookstore catalogue page for books and pictures on and about the Dresden Frauenkirche.

History:
Frauenkirche Dresden can look back on a 1000 year history. Its predecessor churches were dedicated to the Mother of God and called Frauenkirche. In the 18th century, the famous dome structure designed by George Bähr, was built and has dominated Dresden's cityscape for 200 years. The church was destroyed shortly before before the end of World War II, on Valentine's Day. It's ruin remained as a war memotial in the heart of Dresden.

Reconstruction:
The conviction that the Frauenkirche that had been totally destroyed simply had to be rebuilt was shared by many people within both Dresden and elsewhere. But it took 45 years for the realisation of this dream to become a feasible possibility.

Initial endeavours to start rebuilding were already undertaken in the last months of the Second World War. As the reconstruction of a church was not, however, a priority issue in the GDR (former East Germany), conditions favourable to this didn't exist until after the political changes that led to the reunification of most of prewar Germany. Thanks to the impressive efforts made by the citizen's action group, the reconstruction concept was spread throughout the entire world. Over a period of more than 11 years, the church was rebuilt piece by piece. Frauenkirche was rebuilt, keeping within the design specifications set out by George Bähr for the old church and using original construction materials to the largest extent possible.

In total, 60 years went by before the Frauenkirche in all its baroque beauty could reopen its doors to the world. On October 30th 2005, the celebratory consecration took place to mark the conclusion of the church's reconstruction.
