In 1979, the head of Nuremberg's Cultural Affairs Department, Hermann Glaser, formed a task force to create an exhibition on the history of the Nazi Party Rally Grounds. He presented the results in 1984 in the entry hall to the Zeppelin Grandstand. Adolf Hitler had been celebrated here from 1933 and 1938 with parading columns of marching participants and by an audience of cheering spectators, as hundreds of thousands on the Zeppelin Field in front of the Grandstand watched the spectacles in which National Socialism dramatized itself. One statement against Albert Speer's monumental architecture was provided by the sculptures "Overkill I" and "Overkill II" that artist Hans Jürgen Breust had welded together from the Americans' war debris and installed in 1988.
