The Old and the New

A lone figure stands amid the ruins of Coventry Cathedral in 1940, two days after a German bombing raid destroyed the building. The new church, built next to the ruins, is now the home of the Community of the Cross of Nails, dedicated to international reconciliation; parishioners hope to open a world center devoted to forgiveness and peace in 2012.

The old and new Coventry Cathedral stand in stark contrast to each other. Germans lent assistance to help build the new church as a gesture of unity and peace.
