The photos belong to the original Nazi Album "Deustchland Erwacht!" edition of the NSDAP, 1933.

I did the image in the scanner of the original photo.

Best,

Don't forget to see Heinrich Hoffmann's photostudio and the site of the Nazi publishing house across the street (no longer standing). One can also see the sites of the two Temples of Honor, the Nazi Party and Führer building in Munich also.

You comment reminds me of a short film I have seen on the IFC cable channel. It was made by a man in Sweden and delt with memories of his grandmother who had raised him, and who was deeply devoted to the Nazis and Hitler in particular.

She left him a complete collection of the Nazi art magazine, "Die Kunst im Deutches Reich" (pardon any misspellings) all in pristine condition. He showed these in the film and said that when he became a teenager in the Sixties he rebelled against what his grandmother considered good taste and what he had seen in the magazines; i.e. loud colors on his wall, clothing, and loud noise in his music.

"Brown was the color of the Bourgeoise to me". He stated.

WL,

Well I don't hate bourgeoise brown colour but pink lampshades and reddish tone in the brown in the swastika room.

As an architect I am well aware of the thousands of shades of brown. This particular usage of brown " FREAKS ME OUT ". I was unaware of them until saw these two colour photos.

I did not call joy when reading your post, but I hope this cleared the statement a bit.

I do like brownies and even James Brown ! : )

best regards,

Juke T 8) :)

Nice pics ! lol... The swastika rug and ceiling are unique ! However Nazi architecture was far from being "trendy" .... unless you are an all powerful dictator with an ego that can fill all of occupied Europe ! Kinda reminds me of the UPS commercial..... Hitler: " I like to dress in it, it looks fashionable to Aryan, non-communists and it get's me by on bad days. I love brown ! " . :wink:

Feldherrnhalle - does it really have anything to do with the 3rd reich? Or have they just modified it to todays standards?
Or are there other Feldherrnhalles and I'm just confused?

Until 1791, the Schwabinger Tor, which was built in 1391 stood at the Odeonsplatz. It was the main gate connecting Munich with the old village Schwabing. In 1816, Ludwig I commissioned Leo von Klenze with the planning and completion of all the main buildings around the odeonsplatz. Klenze was fascinated by the architecture of ancient Rome and the renaissance. He made the square the focal point of two main streets, the Ludwigstrasse and the Briennerstrasse. The building which catches the eye most is the Feldherrnhal, which sometimes makes the Odeonplatz look like an Italian square.

The Feldherrnhall consists of three arches, with at the entrance two Bayern lions. The building was designed in 1841 by Friedrich von Gärtner after the Loggia dei Lanzi in Florence, Italy on request of Ludwig I in honour of Bayern generals

Built according to plans drawn up by Friedrich von Gärtner in 1841-44, the Feldherrenhalle (Field Marshall's Hall) was commissioned by King Ludwig I, who demanded that it be modelled on Florence's Loggia dei Lanzi. The building reflects the transition between the Medieval town and the new city of Munich (the so-called Maxvorstadt). The Feldherrenhalle stands above Odeonsplatz and its grounds (the piece of land between Theatiner and Residenzstraße), which were once occupied by Schwabinger Tor, one of the city gates, until it was demolished in 1817. In the 1930s and 1940s, the hall was an important memorial for the Nazis, as it was here that Hitler's attempted putsch came to an end on 9th November 1923. People were compelled to salute and say Sieg Heil whenever they passed by. The tiny alley behind the Feldherrenhalle came to be known as Drückebergergässchen or Shirker's Alley, because those who wanted to avoid having to salute would use it as a detour.
