The Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg, Germany stands on the site of the unfinished Congress Hall of the former Nazi party rallies. The permanent exhibition, ‘Fascination and Terror’, covers 13,000 m² and examines the causes, the context and consequences of the National Socialist regime of terror. The exhibition is supplemented by an educational programme and special exhibitions.
The Ordensburg Vogelsang was a training venue for an upcoming Nazi-elite. Young cadets were persuaded they were racially superior and therefore justified to dispose of other, lesser humans. The imposing architecture supposedly demonstrated the power of the ‘Aryan master race’. However, for the Allies who occupied Vogelsang in 1945, it became a symbol of the predominance of democracy over nazism.
