Photos[edit]

In order to better portray the tumultuous 20th-century history of this major symbolic site, this article should include historical photos of Neue Wache and its various sentries in the Imperial, Weimar, Nazi and East German eras. Take a look at the German Wiki entry to see what I mean.

I myself will never forget viewing the goose-stepping changing of the guard by the East German NVA, in their Wehrmacht-style uniforms and jack boots, when I first went to Berlin in 1971. It was a tourist attract, sure, but also a strange mix of militarism and socialist cant.)
