Also see . . . Old Opera House (Frankfurt.de). Pull down or rebuild: For years the fate of ‘Germany’s most beautiful ruin’ was under discussion. But the people of Frankfurt provided an example of civic appreciation and on how to deal with historical heritage. Thanks to civic protests and generous donations the representative building from the Wilhelminian era, which had been bombed down to its foundation walls, was faithfully rebuilt to the original. On 28th August 1981, the inauguration of the Old Opera House was celebrated. (Submitted on December 5, 2016.)
