The inside story

The Pergamon museum is built around the Pergamon Altar – an ancient monument whose modern history has been almost as illustrious as its ancient role. German engineer Carl Humann rediscovered the altar while constructing a road in Turkey during the 1870s and bought it for 20,000 marks, reasoning that the locals might have otherwise taken the stone for building.

Some say its arrival in Berlin soon brought the city bad luck. The First World War was followed by the financial crash of 1929, and then Adolf Hitler’s chief architect Albert Speer used the altar as his model for the grandstand at the Nuremberg rallies. When the Russians rolled into a destroyed Berlin, they took parts of the altar back to the Soviet Union, where they remained until 1959.
