16 October - 6 February 2011. In what is being billed as the first display of its kind in Germany since the end of world war two 65 years ago, the German history museum examines the phenomenon of Hitler and how both he and his campaign managed to win over large sections of German society.
The highly controversial exhibition displays the type of mundane nazi artefacts associated with German citizens' day-to-day lives from that era, adding an eerie air of normality to the regime.
Uncomfortable questions are put forth in relation to the country's collective guilt, such as how Hitler's rise to power was possible, and how his dictatorship, conduct and views became so widely-supported in Germany.
