For the new version of the "Fascination and Terror" exhibition in Nuremberg in 1985, the Pedagogical Institute opened up the unfinished side rooms in the Zeppelin Grandstand and used them as exhibition space. Sober wood panels presented the history of the site in text and pictures and also focused on general aspects of National Socialism. More space was devoted to the victims of National Socialism in particular. The entry hall was cleared and used for numerous theme-based events. Although the exhibition suffered from a perpetual shortage of funds, its reduced form in the bare brick rooms of the Grandstand actually helped unmask the hollowness behind the façade of the Party Rally architecture in Nuremberg.
