DVD 1 Die Reichskanzlei
The New Reich Chancellery was
the only major building project, finished by
Albert Speer. Until today many myths are connected
with Hitler’s Berlin headquarter. Myths
which were purposely sprayed by Goebbels minister
of propaganda. Partly this lies are still part
of today’s documentaries about this building.
This is mainly because the Russian administration
of Berlin ordered the Reich Chancellery to be
demolished after the war. Today, it is not possible
to judge the building in an objective manner
just by viewing historic photographs alone.
For that reason, Christoph Neubauer started
in 2003 building a high detailed computer model
of the entire Chancellery and its surrounding
buildings in the Berlin government district.
He studied more then 10.000 photographs and
construction plans and spent up to now more
then 300.000 hours working on this project.
This part of the documentary series “Hitler’s
Berlin 3D” focuses on the historic background
which shaped the building of the Reich Chancellery.
Beginning with the Old Reich Chancellery, the
film also covers the extensions made in 1929
and 1934-1936. Further more the construction
of the New Reich Chancellery is shown in detail.
This documentary shows, besides the official
facades of the building on Wilhelmplatz, Vossstrasse
and Hermann – Goering – Strasse,
also the facades which were not designed for
the public eye.
