In this space, photos, exhibits and a film made up from original photography give visitors an easy-to-understand view of the ways in which the Nazi Party Rallies in Nuremberg allowed the Nazi regime to present its self-image both domestically and abroad, and how they were intended to embody the "Volksgemeinschaft," or "people's community," and the mythology surrounding the "Führer."

As visitors complete their tour of the exhibits, they meet with a view of the Congress Hall's uncompleted interior courtyard. This space was supposed to seat 50,000 people for Party Congresses, under a cantilevered roof with a skylight in the center.

A view across the Dutzendteich Park: The "Great Road" formed the central line of the Nuremberg Rally venue. For ideological reasons it faced north toward Nuremberg Castle, a symbol of the old Empire. The ruins of the Congress Hall can be seen in the background, with the Zeppelintribüne and Zeppelinfeld on the other side of the lake.

The architectural concept by Graz architect Günther Domenig is clearly evident in the lobby of the Documentation Center. A glass passage spears its way diagonally through the building for 130 meters (about 425 feet), a permanent disruption of the National Socialists' attempt to display their power in perpendicular stone.
