Perhaps the best known architectural symbol of Berlin is the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Chruch in the Breitscheidplatz. The Church was dedicated to Wilhelm I, who was proclaimed Kaiser at Versailles in 1871. Construction began in the early part of the twentieth century and was completed before World War I. The Church was built in the neo-Romanesque style of the 1890s. Until it was destroyed by Allied bombing raids during World War II, the Church stood as a symbol of Berlin's -- and Germany's -- cultural prestige. After the war, Berliners decided not to rebuild the Church, instead, they let it stand as a memorial to the martyrs who died at the hands of the Nazis and as a warning to posterity of the horrors of war. Today it is affectionately known to Berliners as "The Hollow Tooth."
