Two Soviet soldiers take a rest with a stray puppy amidst the chaos of the Battle of Berlin. April 1945.
The Eldorado nightclub and cabaret in Berlin’s Schöneberg area on Motzstraße near Nollendorfplatz square seen circa 1932 (above) and 1933 (below). Nollendorfplatz was the center of Berlin’s gay and lesbian community during the rather tolerant Weimar era, and the Eldorado was one of many popular nightclubs that catered to the gay community. The Eldorado became a trendy hot spot for Berlin revelers, with drag shows and a lesbian band. With the coming to power of the National Socialists, however, the atmosphere of tolerance during the Weimar years had shifted and the Eldorado and other gay-friendly establishments were closed.
