Obligation to the Past
Nuremberg played an important role for the National Socialists as their headquarters and staging ground for Nazi party rallies. Today, the Obligation to the Past educates locals and visitors to the city about the story of Nuremberg during the Third Reich. The former rally grounds, which were built to hold over 50,000 National Socialists, have been transformed into The Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds. Take a journey through the history of party rallies and propaganda with a visit to ‘Fascination and Terror’ exhibition. It spans over 1300m² and is broken down into nineteen displays set out in chronological order.
