Charles Krafft and George Stimson join Carolyn Yeager for a discussion of the impressive designs that were a part of the Third Reich, indisputably one of the most artistically creative periods in modern history. They discuss the Allach Porcelain Works outside of Dachau; some of the well known designers working in the Reich; the passion of the militaria collector; the images most commonly used; posters, flags and banners, uniforms and weaponry such as daggers.
