    ... an area surrounded by tall glass highrise buildings and topped with a glass canopy. Interesting but I wouldn't have been upset if I hadn't seen it. Of more interest was the display just outside this centre where they had marked in the pavement and road where the Berlin Wall had been. Our next stop was related to the Wall, Checkpoint Charlie.

The host Ron I think that's his name, was lovely and hospitable. He is able to speak 5 languages! He just made us feel welcomed. We found out that Rita is actually 38 years old! That would explain why she was so motherly towards us. She looks young for her age. When we arrived she organised ...

    ... Parliament passed a law allowing Nazis in the parliament.

    Hitler made many stirring speeches, promising to restore the former glory of the German country, and blaming all the problems on the Communists and Jews. So the Nazi party gained power and seats in the Parliament.

    2. Reichstag

    In 1933 Hilter was made Chancellor, but with a minority in Parliament so no real power to do anything. But then the Reichstag was mysteriously set on fire, ...
