Schwieriges Erbe: Wohin mit Hitlerjugend-Dolch und anderen NS-Devotionalien? | STATIONEN | BR
a very special excursion of the Weber family from North Rhine-Westphalia they arrived in Nuremberg with their luggage part of their legacy the late father was a collector from the age of 16 he still worked as an anti-aircraft helper in his estate relics his story that was with the flackhelfer o HJ preschool probably exactly our father found somewhere no idea all of that should go to the ns-doko-zentrum nice things want to stay where you think it's something great what he collected with the nazis things we only think should only agree with the location that they will be disposed of so I think it's great that this place is there that you get the feeling that you're throwing it away maybe it still has a scientific purpose and we have a clear conscience and then drive home to the ward unfinished congresses of the former concentration camp of the nazi party is located in the north wing the NS documentation center is one of the most visited in nuremberg as renovations are underway historian alexander schmidt welcomes guests in temporary conference room it's something like that for example we don't have it in the collection yet but it fits very well for the exhibition of post war unit test on the other hand is probably completely normal and honor so i think its the HJ belt but we have to check we just have to check we just match the signs because the dagger that goes with this uniform there you have a vest , you have the belt, pants, parts of the HJ uniform that was worn by almost every child from the age of 10, the Hitler Youth with almost 9 million members at that time.
Expert Schmidt knows the importance of things, yes that's a flamethrower. the Wehrmacht used a means of destruction to the point of absolute destruction 1930s war toys widespread at the time that was part of life has been shocked by parents and grandparents today manc heirs well some people really felt these things like a burden so you might not like having a mein kampf nazi flag or something like that or all these soldiers in the house national socialism has militarized a whole society and you can show it with lots of objects yeah we're happy that good hands come here, as we said, we don't want money for that, we are glad that there are no old Nazis or young Nazis looking at the ze at home now, but that they are in good hands and an exhibition serves the permanent exhibition in which maybe later you can see things from father Weber's estate is being redesigned Alexander Schmidt receives such a large and diverse private collection at most two or three times a year yes, now you can see our sorting room here maybe you could say it's huge what people find in their basements in their attics or find what people collect but most of the in-kind donations from the farms are books lots of devotional items from the NS era also end up at the delivery point that was sent by a family from the USA, for example a swastika flag that had been taken by the late father GI in Nuremberg by the ns-dokozentrum ensures that such an inheritance is we manage responsibly, so we throw things away too, but in a different way than a waste paper bin because then it could be sold again and that's exactly what the people who give us things didn't want to do with the attitude I don't want I want support this nazi devotional trade that's why we got to the final destination of the thing so to speak i have all our stuff is still comparatively harmless so when i look at stuff so creepy or Adolf here's a little dolly I don't think that was the case with us but it was still harmless that's why but the purpose is good and it's good that he's in good hands here so my impression is that this is gla I am being seriously accepted and seriously investigated and that from that point of view our things ended in a sensible place the webers brothers are happy that they were able to pass on this part of their heritage and they are sure that they also acted in the interests of their deceased father
