Behind the Page... Nuremberg

Nuremberg is the city in Germany that the Nazis chose as their literal rally point. They held annual rallies there and built a huge stadium to accommodate these. Many view Nuremberg as the symbolic seat of Nazism as this is where the infamous Nuremberg Laws were passed. More on that next time. The symbolism of Nuremberg also partially influenced the decision to hold the post WWII war crimes trials in that city. More on that in the next book. :)
