The Bombing of Dresden, February 13, 1945


To commemorate the day the bombs fell there was a concert in the Dresden opera: Johannes Brahms: A German Requiem. When the music had ended the audience did not clap. Quietly, everyone stood up and remained standing, long, in silence.

What a moving expression of sadness. I was moved when reading it.
