    Label Text

    Until 1929, the Ufa-Palast, where director Fritz Lang premiered his groundbreaking Weimar-era films, including Metropolis and M, was the largest and most famous movie theater in Berlin. It was destroyed during World War II, as was the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, seen in the background to the right, and later photographed by Vishniac during his 1947 return trip to Europe when he documented the destruction of Berlin.
