German City Maps from 1938
This is an experiment to see if anyone finds it useful. I have a street atlas of Germany from 1938, which I find interesting because it shows how streets and public squares were re-named all over Germany in honor Hitler and other Nazi potentates. I've added the maps for Berlin, Frankfurt, Hanover, and Nuremberg. If you have a city you'd particularly like to see a map of, let me know.
I've since added, by request, Munich to the list.
In the case of Nuremberg, for example, the illustration below shows that the main square was named for Hitler. I've also included a clip of the Nuremberg Party Rally grounds.
