    Shortly after the outbreak of the Second World War the figures from the altar of 1498 by sculptor Hans Seyfer (act. 1498–died 1509) were removed for safekeeping. Later they were transported along with some of the late 15th-century stained-glass windows of the choir to the salt mine in Kochendorf. Other art treasures were secured in the church itself. As early as September 10, 1944 the roofs of the choir, north aisle and sacristy were destroyed by incendiary bombs in an Allied air raid. On October 12, 1944 a land mine destroyed windows, the southern spiral staircase and the high altar. On December 4, 1944, the church was finally almost completely destroyed during an air raid. The west tower and the northern choir tower burned, as did the nave. The choir vault, gallery and the organ were completely destroyed. In April 1945, Allied artillery fire caused further damage, particularly to the west front. Reconstruction took place in several phases from 1946 until 1974.
