Germany - Luther Memorials in Eisleben and Wittenberg
Sent by Diana, a postcrosser from Germany.
These memorials are of outstanding universal value as bearing unique testimony to the Protestant Reformation, which was one of the most significant events in the religious and political history of the world, and as outstanding examples of 19th-century historicism. They are all associated with the lives of Martin Luther and his fellow-reformer Melanchthon.
