Daniel Libeskind's Addition to the Dresden Museum of Military History

Dresden’s Military History Museum opens to the public this Saturday after seven years of renovation.  Grabbing your immediate attention is architect Daniel Libeskind’s aggressive sharp grey wedge made of steel and glass that was added to the building.  We were reminded of Kurt Vonnegut’s, Slaughter House Five and his writing of his experience of the bombing of Dresden.
