1938 Reich party rally of the NSDAP in Nuremberg, Misidentified by the publisher as “The Congress Hall”
Lot 1793
"Built in 1906 as Hall of Machinery the Luitpoid-Hali first served for exhibition purposes and later as assembly place for great political demonstrations. In order to accommodate the Party Rallies it has been rebuilt by order of the Fuhrer. At the front and the back powerful structures have been added, more efficient entrances provided; in addition a magnificent organ has been built at the rear of the Hall. The Luitpold-Hall is 18 m high, 180 m long, 50 m wide and has an area of 9,000 square meters. It contains about 16,000 seats or standing room for 30,000 people. For the duration of the Party Rally the Hall is simply and tastefully decorrated every year. During these days the wide Hall is crowded with enthusiastic people. In the presence of the Fiihrer the large platform is occupied by the leading members of the National Socialist Movement and its Branches, whilst in the background the bright standards are arranged. Together with them the numerous guests of honor and the various uniforms make a lasting impression on the visitor.”
