Berlin's German Historical Museum saw last week the opening of a controversial exhibition about Adolf Hitler and explores the relationship between the Führer and the German nation. The exhibition sets out to explain how the persona of Hitler and his ideals infiltrated Germans' lives.
This thought-provoking exhibition, Hitler and the Germans: Nation and Crime, investigates how Hitler seduced a nation so successfully. Exhibits include collections of Nazi memorabilia, uniforms, propaganda and pictures. Due to the sensitivity of the subject matter curators were careful to limit the number of items showcased that Hitler may have touched himself and a decision was taken not to play any audio recordings of his speeches or show any images of Hitler in isolation.
History students visiting Berlin and taking time to visit this exhibition will gain some understanding of Hitler’s character and how he was so influential.
The exhibition follows recent attempts to demystify the Nazi leader in films, documentaries and even comedies.
