Germany: Thomaskirche and Bach Monument

Today I got five postcards from Germany.

One of them shows the Thomaskirche and the Bach Monument in Leipzig. The Thomaskiche is famous as place of activity of Johann Sebastian Bach and Martin Luther. At Pentecost in 1539 Martin Luther gave the sermon at the Thomaskirche and thus introduced the Reformation to Saxony. Johann Sebastian Bach became in 1723 the chanter of the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. In 1950 the remains of Bach were translated to the Thomaskirche.
