Dresden Zwinger  graffiti inscription left by Russian soldier

Graffiti inscripton on the exterior wall of the Zwinger palace made by a Russian soldier. The text reads 'Min nyet' or no mines. The inscription was made after Soviet forces had taken control of the city in 1945. Photographed in July 2005 - the inscription may possibly be removed as part of the ongoing maintenance of the palace.


The inscription was pointed out to me by an 80 passer by. She told me about the bombing of Dresden and expressed sympathy at the recent London bombings.
