Once Hitler had declared Nuremberg the "City of Nazi Party Rallies" in 1933, construction began on monumental buildings for the party's mass meetings on eleven square kilometers (4.25 square miles) in the southeastern part of the city. Even today, the remains of huge structures bear witness to the megalomania of the National Socialist regime.
