About the photos: The Berlin TV tower (Fernsehturm), built in East Berlin in 1964, during the systematic atheism of Socialist rule, ironically shone a cross from the center (seen at left from the Berlin Wall) due to the natural process of sunlight on the reflective components, which Christians in the west dubbed “The Pope’s Revenge.” At right is the tower as seen on a smoggy day in the rain.
