Nuremberg under National Socialism

Covering roughly 16 square kilometers – more than six square miles – the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds in Nuremberg are the Federal Republic of Germany's largest surviving assemblage of National Socialist government and party architecture.

This is where the Nazi Party Rallies were held from 1933 to 1938. During World War II, the site was a place of multifaceted violence against Jews, forced laborers and prisoners of war.

In 2001, the Documentation Center at the Nazi Party Rally Grounds was opened in the former "Congress Hall." The museum's modern architecture represents a firm rejection of the Nazi regime's aesthetic of ostentation and intimidation. The Center is currently being remodeled and expanded. For the duration of this multi-year project, a specially designed Interim Exhibition, "Nuremberg – Site of the Nazi Party Rallies. Staging, Experience and Violence," has replaced the former Permanent Exhibition. In German and in English, it tells the story for the first time of the many different events associated with the Rally Grounds from 1918 to 2020, as seen from the perspective of local history.
