Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Am Vorabend des 9. November sprach wie alljährlich der Führer zu seiner alten Garde im Münchener Bürgerbräukeller. Seine Rede war eine scharfe Abrechnung mit der englische Kriegshetze. Zwanzig Minuten später war die Stelle, an der der Führer gesprochen hatte, ein Trümmerhaufen."
Content: This was the beer hall from which Hitler launched his unsuccessful 1923 Putsch, or attempt to topple the Bavarian government. A hallowed site for the Nazi faithful, this night saw an assassination attempt on the Führer, using a bomb planted in a pillar.
