Seven Sisters 03: Bethanien

The Bethanien Hospital was opened in 1847 on Mariannenplatz in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. The name is a very common one given to many hospitals run by the church due to the connection with the story of Lazarus of Bethany, who was brought back to life in one of the miracles of Jesus.

Bethanien was used both as hospital and barracks during the second world war, but its significance waned after the war and it was finally closed in 1970. The subsequent planned demolition led to fierce resistance and it being taken over by squatting leftist activists and artists. The community in the old hospital would create many collaborative art projects and the cult singer Rio Reiser also began his creative career there. Today Bethanien is a centre for contemporary art exhibitions and events.

Seven Sisters 02: Flakturm

With the Allied air forces starting to strike back with bombing raids on cities like Berlin and Hamburg, the German high command ordered the construction of massive concrete anti-aircraft towers in the middle of these core cities. The Luftwaffe would lead the air defenses from these fortresses and they successfully made aerial bombardment a very costly affair.

During the fall of Berlin the Tiergarten "Zoo tower" would come to serve as the last point of resistance in the city, with the last remaining Wehrmacht armored units rallying around the tower for a final futile stand against the the overwhelming forces of the Soviet Red Army.

The Zoo tower was demolished in 1947, but towers in cities like Vienna and Stuttgart still remain and have been converted to alternative use.
