Wildly divergent figures circulate. The figures given by serious scholars tend to be in the range c. 25,000 - 35,000. Figures like 135,000 and so forth originated with Goebbels.

The bombing of Dresden was a revenge event for the earlier bombing destruction of British towns and cities. There was no military reason or benefit for its destruction.
