Documentation Centre Nazi Party Rally Grounds: In the Third Reich Nuremberg was the "City of the Nazi Party Rallies".

Interim Exhibition: Nuremberg - Site of the Nazi Party Rallies

The Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds will begin a major remodeling project and the old Permanent Exhibition will give way to an Interim Exhibition for the duration of the construction work, with a focus on the space and content of the Rally Grounds. A large-format media installation will take visitors on a trip through time from 1918 to today, and provide an introductory orientation to this vast tract of land. A kaleidoscopic range of photos and plans will set the site within the overall context of its time and topography.

Four time periods grouped around the installation will illustrate events at the Rally Grounds. For the first time, national history will be retold from a local perspective. Selected objects will join documents, films and photos to create a collage-like picture of the past. Many biographies and eyewitness reports will illuminate the topic from personal vantage points. Familiar facts will be joined by new findings; changes in approach and attempts at explanations will be linked with established knowledge. Media stations will emphasize the diversity of voices and invite visitors to form their own picture of this history.
