Hundreds joined hand in hand to form a lengthy human chain in the inner city of Dresden, in defiance to far-right gatherings on the anniversary of the World War II Ally aerial bombing attack on Dresden. The human chain was formed at 18:00 local time (19:00 GMT), with the ringing of the church's bells. The bombing of Dresden took place on February 13-15 in 1945, during which more than 1,600 acres (6.5 km2) of the city centre were destroyed by Allied airstrikes. Death toll estimates range between 22,000 and 25,000 people.
