    Administrative Notes

    Note
    The Tiergarten Soviet War Memorial was constructed on the orders of the Red Army shortly after the end of World War II. It was the first Soviet memorial in Berlin and was put up in the heart of the city, not far from Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag building. It was officially dedicated already on 11 November 1945. The design was done by the sculptors Lev E. Kerbel and Vladimir E. Zigal and the architect Nikolai W. Sergievski. The memorial’s location was a conscious choice, since it functions as a literal barrier to the victory once envisioned by the Nazis: it stands where the "Siegesallee" (Victory Avenue) planned as a north-south axis by Albert Speer, Adolf Hitler’s chief architect, would have intersected with the east-west axis (today’s Strasse des 17. Juni).
