The Aegidienkirche is a built in the 14th century church in Hanover. The easternmost of the three old town churches (the other two are Marktkirche and Kreuzkirche) was named after St. Ägidius, one of the 14 emergency workers. It is located in the old town near the Aegidientorplatz on the corner of Breite Straße and Osterstraße. In 1943, the church was destroyed by bombs during the air raids on Hanover. The church was not rebuilt, its ruin today serves as a memorial to the victims of wars and violence.
