The party’s over

This may not be totally appropriate on ‘VE’ (Victory in Europe) Day, but today I came across this amazing footage of Berlin, Germany’s devastated capital, at the end of WWII, posted┬áby the Berlin Channel on youtube. Despite the sunshine, and the occasional almost smiling faces you definitely get a ‘the party’s over’ kind of feeling. Not exactly VE Day, but it’s definitely ‘the day after’ …

I suppose the occupying allies were still partying however, and the Soviets are out in full regalia, as you will see.
