    On Kurfurstendamm we see the badly damaged Kaiser Wilhelm Gedachtnis Kirche.

    "Tiergarten with memorial at end" - this is the Victory Column (Germanic name is Siegessaule).

    "Panning to the Soviet War Memorial - this is the "Sowjetisches Ehrenmal".

    "Close view of the statue on top of Tiergarten" - this is actually the statue on top of the Victory Column. The statue is of Victoria, the goddess of victory.
