Nazis - I hate those guys

While I was in Berlin, I saw this exhibition on Hitler and Speer's Germania project - wacky plan to turn Berlin into a corpse city of ridiculously large buildings. It featured models created as props for the Downfall film, showing such delights as the Enormodome, the Great Arch of Victory, some huge Mussolini Column and various other grotesquely oversized buildings and monuments. I have always been aware of what deeply unpleasant people the leaders of the Third Reich were, but it was seeing these models really brought home what total lunatics they were.
