Considering that Poland and Germany were the countries that suffered tge most WWII destructions which do you think has done a better effort in reconstruction work - Germany or Poland?

Warsaw old town was completely rebuilt while Berlin is, well, mostly post-war modernist. But it seems Germans lately are rebuilding more (Frankfurt old town), while Poles have gone the modernist route.

Yes, because there must be balance in nature.

which do you think has done a better effort

I think the title question is wrongly structured: you probably wanted to ask: which country rebuilt its destroyed architecture more faithfully?

we talked about this topic here:

What many abroad don't realize is that compared with Germany, Poland was dirt poor after the war! Naturally, even with an essentially wrecked infrastructure, it took the Germans but several years of unceasing, methodical labor to all bv resurrect their country. Warsaw's downtown took roughly twenty some years to rebuild, from '47 - '68, not out of sloth, but rather poverty.

47 - '68,

Some even later, the Royal Castle in Warsaw in 1970s.
