Germany opens first Hitler exhibit

Organisers meticulously assembled the more than 600 items, but are still nervous.

    Adolf Hitler led the Nazi party to power, steered a regime that orchestrated the murder of more than 7 million Jews, Romas, gays and other minorities, and instigated World War II. But until now, he never had a museum exhibit dedicated to him in Germany.

    "Hitler and the Germans," an exhibition that opens on Friday in Berlin's German Historical Museum, took six years to assemble and consciously avoids glorifying the former leader: Rooms with his bust have been made too small to take group photos in, and objects Hitler may have touched have been almost entirely excluded.
