The stamp shows a famous image of the church ruins from 1957 on the right. And a modern image of the restored church in 2015 on the left.

Thank you for your posting. The restored church is beautiful inside and outside. The story of how the people of Dresden stood against the authorities for wanting to level the site and make a parking lot is very moving. Their painstaking efforts in restoring the church to its former glory is nothing short of outstanding. JRGroves, Mesa, AZ, USA.
