Inside the Roman Catholic Church of St. Hedwig on the Bebelplatz in Berlin.

The church was built in the 18th century by Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. The King's friend, Ignacy Krasicki, Bishop of Warmia (later Archbishop of Gniezno), officiated at the cathedral's opening in 1773. The cathedral was named after the patron saint of Silesia and Brandenburg, Saint Hedwig of Andechs, and commemorated the arrival of Roman Catholic Silesian immigrants in Brandenburg and Berlin.

After the Kristallnacht pogroms that took place over the night of 9-10 November 1938, Bernhard Lichtenberg, a canon of the cathedral chapter of St. Hedwig since 1931, prayed publicly for Jews in the evening prayer following. Lichtenberg was later jailed by the Nazis and died on the way to the concentration camp at Dachau. In 1965 Lichtenberg's remains were transferred to the crypt at St. Hedwig's.

The cathedral burned out completely in 1943 during air raids on Berlin and was reconstructed from 1952 up to 1963. (Text from Wikipedia).
