Soviet forces captured it in 1945 during the fall of Berlin, shortly before the Nazi surrender. It has since been replaced with the post-Nazi German Parliament, the Bundesrath.

  • The symbol of Germany democracy, burned down in the thirties. A dutch communist in the building that night was executed for the burning down, but it was beneficial to the new nazi government in permanent postponement of democracy.

  • The Reichstag was the capital of the German Parliament during WWII. A dutch communist was in the building that night, and was executed for the crime. Although many thought the Germans themselves did it, to the contrary, it was the dutchman. However, it was beneficial to the new Nazi government under Chancellor Hitler in permanent postponement of democracy. This event is comparable to 9/11, it provoked fear, exacerbated by the government, which is slowly resulting in the halt of democracy and the establishment of a dictatorship.

  • The original German Parliament, but now also used as a byword for 'awesome' or something of 'epic proportions'. Simliar to modern use of the word 'krieg' (german for war) within the metal community.
