Bad Day in Berlin

it was eighty five years ago today that the first NSDAP group was formed in the city. The party that would eventually bring about the deaths of millions and the near total destruction of Berlin set up its first offices in Kreuzberg’s Yorckstrasse 90 on 19 November 1922. Following a short lived ban in 1923 (as a result of the Munich putsch), the party would accelerate its rabble rousing and tendency to violence following the arrival in 1926 of Gauleiter Joseph Goebbels.
