Nazi HQ to be learning center


The former Nazi Headquarters in Munich is slated to become an educational center.


The Brown House, which was home to the Nazi Party beginning in 1933, will serve as a documentation center and a place of learning, according to Germany’s Deutsche Welle news service.


The center was first proposed in 1989, and in 2001 the city of Munich approved a plan for the center. The project will be funded by the state of Bavaria and with $50.4 million from the German federal government. Construction will begin at the end of 2008, which is also the 850th anniversary of the city of Munich, according to Deutsche Welle.


Nothing is left of the original headquarters building, which was torn down and removed by the temporary U.S. military government at the end of World War II.
