Dresden, after the attacks, is reduced to rubble. The city has since been rebuilt but some of the ruins were left intact as monuments to the casualties and to remind future generations of the costs of war. The casualties and destruction of Dresden, although a subject of historical debate, were actually on par with other attacks in World War II. The fire bombings of Tokyo, for instance, produced 100,000 casualties.
