Nuremberg

I went to Dachau on Mother’s Day and Nuremberg on our Anniversary weekend.  I’m soaking in all this European history while I can!

We visited the Documentation Center and the Parade Grounds where Hitler made propaganda videos of his party.

The author of Third Reich in Ruins website has many pictures of the area.  If you go to this link and scroll down about halfway to where you see the words, “The RAD assembled on the Zeppelinfeld…” you will see Hitler on the platform that we got to see and walk on during our visit.

The part with the railing is where Hitler stood to give speeches.

Matt and the boys standing at that spot.

Stands and podium from a distance with my guys in place.

This place is huge!

The Colosseum Hitler built but never finished or utilized.

This tour was so fascinating. The audio tour was the best I’ve ever taken. When we walked into a room our listening devices automatically started playing right were the video was. There were many places we had to press a number to hear the audio, but for all the movies, it was automatic!   This was an exhibit of items found around the area and it was imbedded into the floor of the first room.
