WATCH: History and transparency converge in Germany’s Bundestag building

The Reichstag building was constructed in 1894, burned in a mysterious fire in 1933, shelled in air raids during WWII, repaired in the 1960s, then restored in 1999 after the reunification of Germany. The building was not used during the Nazi era, nor the divided East/ West Germany years. Now, the renovated building features a glass dome, symbolizing transparency in the government.
