a very special excursion by the Weber family from North Rhine-Westphalia they arrived in Nuremberg with their luggage part of their legacy the deceased father was a collector since he was 16 he was still employed as an anti-aircraft helper in his estate relics his story that was either with the flackhelfer or preschool HJ probably exactly our father found somewhere no idea all that should go to the ns-doko-zentrum the nice things want to keep where you think it's something great what he collected with the nazi things we just think they should just be in accordance with the location be disposed of, so I think it's great that this place is there, that you get the feeling you're throwing it away maybe still has a scientific purpose and we have a clear conscience then drive home the unfinished congress hall of the former Nazi Party Rally Grounds is located in the north wing the NS Documentation Center is one of the most visited museums in Nuremberg since the renovations are going on, historian Alexander Schmidt welcomes the guests in the temporary lecture room it's something like that, for example, we don't have it in the collection at all yet but it fits nicely for the post-war exhibition unit test on the other hand is probably completely normal and honor so I believe that is the belt of the HJ but we have to check that we only have to check that we only match the signs because the dagger that goes with this uniform there you have a vest you have the belt pants Uniform parts of
