The Swastika on the Sun (aka The Man in the High Castle)

It's hard to describe the feeling when you're in presence of such an historical place and although it's not for sure that this mosaic is original, at a certain point, it makes not great difference.
The mosaic is at the second floor of a building, on top of a light yellow marble staircase and its position is dominant. It's quite perfectly preserved, although the four small side swastikas have been removed.
The building has been used by the Soviet Army for a long time after the end of the WWII and it's a mystery why this symbol has been left as is. Maybe cause the room was found in perfect state  or maybe as a sense of superiority for having destroyed the nazis.
