Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What an incredible example of endurance!  The Frauenkirche in Dresden was completely destroyed during the bombing raids of February 1945 and then painstakingly restored from 1993 onwards, using as many of the original pieces as possible.  Someone described it as the largest jigsaw puzzle ever!

Today, it is a stunningly beautiful church and a major tourist attraction.
