For me, the grim 19th century Spandau Prison and Hitler's bunker have long been palpable symbols of Nazi evil.
But with Rudolf Hess dead, a suicide, the four Allied powers have begun tearing down the prison, in West Berlin. It will be replaced by a shopping center for British Army personnel. The Allies do not want the prison, where major Nazi war criminals served their sentences, to become a future shrine for neo-Nazis.
Earlier this summer, the East Germans began demolishing the underground bunker, in East Berlin. The area is to become a children's playground.
