    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.

    The ruin of the Aegidienkirche serves today as a memorial.The Aegidienkirche was originally built in the 14th century and was later rebuilt by Georg Ludwig Friedrich Laves. It was destroyed in 1943, and only the tower and the outer walls were rebuilt. Since then it has served as a memorial to the victims of war and violence. On the tower there is a carillon and in the tower below is the peace bell from Hiroshima.hannover.de/Tourismus/Sehensw%C3%BCrdigkeiten-Stadttouren/Sehensw%C3%BCrdigkeiten/Mahnmal-Aegidienkirche
