Prora (dpa/mv) - In the Prora documentation center on the island of Rügen, visitors can find out more about the Hitler Youth - the youth organization of the National Socialists - from mid-July.

The Hitler Youth between claim and reality" from July 14 to the end of October will look into these and similar questions, as the documentation center announced on Tuesday. It should be about a differentiated image beyond well-known propaganda images. According to the information, 14 media stations, contemporary films and descriptions of many contemporary witnesses are part of the show.
Between 1936 and 1939, the 4.7-kilometre-long baths of the "NS community Strength through Joy" were built in Prora during National Socialism. The listed facility should allow up to 20,000 people to vacation on the Baltic Sea. In addition to Nazi buildings in Nuremberg, Prora is one of the most important closed architectural legacies of the Nazi era. The documentation center reminds of this history and the subsequent use.
