Stadt und Nationalsozialismus Museen
November 15, 2009
Today I visited the Stadtmuseum (city museum). Upon entering the museum, I unknowingly found the NSDP museum next door, showing Hitler and the Nazi partys’ rise to power. It was incredible to see geniune artifacts, including loads of propaganda that was used in the early 30’s to promote the horrible partys’ ideology.

1919 to 1933 is known as the Weimarer Republik in Germany. It was a weak government system that immediately followed their loss of WWI. Hyperinflation was so terrible that money quickly became worthless. These 10 and 25 million Mark bills would be good for a few loafs of bread. The highest bill printed during the Weimar was worth 100 trillion Marks.
