You will explore the competing versions of modernity offered by authoritarian right-wing regimes in more depth later in this course. However, you might like bear in mind some of the comments made about the ‘idyll’ that the Nazis were attempting to create with this housing estate as we move on to our final stop on this tour, Nollendorfplatz.
