Einsteinturm and the Wissenschaftspark (Potsdam)

The Einstein Tower is an astrophysical observatory in Potsdam, built in 1924 by Erich Mendelsohn. It's inside the Science Park Albert Einstein and it's still working.
After the Nazis' anti-Semitic dictatorship began in 1933, the Einstein Tower lost its name and status as an independent institute, as well as pictures of Einstein were removed and sculptures were supposedly melted down.
The building was heavily damaged by Allied bombing during World War II and then full renovated in 1999, for its 75th anniversary.
