Munich, Germany

My blog post today is about a new Jewish center that has been built in Munich, a famous tourist destination in Germany, where the Nazis formerly had their headquarters.

You can read about the documentation center in a recent New York Times article here.

This quote is from the New York Times article:

Munich is the birthplace of the Nazi party. There are walking tours of Munich which take tourists to the places associated with Hitler and the Nazis, including the house on Schleissheimerstrasse where Hitler stayed when he arrived in Munich in 1913, the Hotel Torbau which is the site of the beer hall where the SS was founded, and the room upstairs in the Hofbräuhaus where the Nazi party proclaimed its 25-point program. It was at the Hofbräuhaus that Hitler gave a two and a half hour speech on February 24, 1920 to 2,000 supporters.

A few blocks from the Marienplatz is the Feldherrenhalle where a plaque in the pavement honors the four policemen who were killed during the climax of Hitler’s Beer Hall Putsch, which also claimed the lives of 16 Nazis.

Yes, Munich is the birthplace of the Nazi party. The last time that I visited Munich in 2007, there were walking tours which took tourists to the places associated with Hitler and the Nazis, including the house on Schleissheimerstrasse where Hitler stayed when he arrived in Munich in 1913, the Hotel Torbau which is the site of the beer hall where the SS was founded, and the room upstairs in the Hofbräuhaus where the Nazi party proclaimed its 25-point program. It was at the Hofbräuhaus that Hitler gave a two and a half hour speech on February 24, 1920 to 2,000 supporters.

But all this Munich history is shon forbei. Now it is all about the Jews who are in control of Germany, and especially in control of Munich.

The Jews now  have their  own country, thanks to Hitler, but they want to live in Germany, where they want to put up their own  style of  architecture in historic German cities.

The point that I am trying to make here, in case you missed it, is that Jewish architecture does not belong in Germany. It belongs in Israel. For example, the building shown below, which is in the German city of Berlin, belongs in Israel.
