Myth of Germania – Vision and Crime Permanent Exhibition

Mythos Germania 2014 -- Titelbild

Since 1997, the Berlin Underworlds Association has been researching the history of Berlin’s hidden city, beneath its soil, with the goal of further exploration into the development and documentation of historical structures. Through numerous tours, the Association attempts to provide a realistic insight into the rapid urban development of the 19th century, the military history of Germany’s capital, and the division of Berlin. With this latest project, the Association intends to create a permanent location to provide information on the urban planning of the Nazi era. The multimedia exhibition ‘Myth of Germania – Vision and Crime’, invites visitors to independently explore this complex topic.

The vast project of planning Hitler’s Germania was not meant merely to serve Berlin’s citizens with a modernized habitat, but rather as a representation of the Nazi regime's sheer power. With a project that seemed inconceivable to most, the foundations were supported by Speer’s policies of expulsion, deportation and slave labour. By combining these factors, we can see how the attempted development of this new metropolis was inevitably linked with crimes against humanity.

The historical exhibition of the Berlin Underworlds Association displays the architecture and urban planning in Berlin during the Nazi era, the ideological objectives of the Nazi regime and the criminal methods used in its pursuit. With these goals in mind, the exhibition attempts to analyze and deconstruct the legends surrounding the hotly debated topic of the “World Capital of Germania”.
