The entrance gate :



The ruined palace with gardens and fountains , with a german officer to the right. The Samson statue is always here , before being stolen by germans :

I hadn't seen the first photo before.  You can clearly see shrapnel damage to the columns of the gate, and the burned out shell of the palace beyond.  My God.
