“That is really where it all started: the devastation, the exception and in the long run, the Holocaust” where the Nazis slaughtered six million European Jews, Julia Lehner, the southern town’s chief civilization officer, told AFP.

The area is going to be transformed into a playground and hints will describe the history and importance of every building. Zeppelin Field using its rock bleachers reverse the grandstand was used as athletic grounds for US soldiers and stone concerts by the likes of Bob Dylan.

It is about”creating the stones talk”, says Lehner. “By telling their background and constantly insisting it can’t be permitted to occur again”.

“This implies that, since architectural artifacts, they represent the perfect picture the National Socialist regime was of the Third Reich.”

Nuremberg’s Jewish community has adopted the plans, together with the president saying it is a good idea to remind folks about the totalitarian ideology that the buildings incarnate.

Congress Hall is supposed to finally become a home to artists’ studios.

Since 2001, a documentation center on the sidelines of these grounds serves to present historical context.

The question of what to do with those debilitating relics has bothered Nuremberg for decades. Now they turned into a living monument having a durable message: not again.
