And once again: A few parts of the carved marble above the entrance door was saved. I wonder if/hope they still exist.

Hi Marius

Just an outstanding thread, a real pleasure to read and learn from. Can only confirm the ribbon was worn in reverse by most Germans with black vs green on the right

with kind regards
Tim
