Did you know that Adolf Hitler ordered the closure of the Kronprinzenpalais, a part of the National Gallery. Here was the modernly art department. Not really the thing of the Fuhrer. He called this the scary art department, even containng masterpieces by Kandinsky, Schiele, Nolde and Maevich. By order of the Ministry of Education it was closed in October 1936.

The Kronprinzenpalais (Crown Prince’s Palace) is a landmark late classical-style building at one end of Unter den Linden in Berlin. It was a palace of the ruling Hohenzollern house of Prussia until the abolition of the monarchy at the end of World War I. It then became an annexe of the Berlin National Gallery, housing a preeminent collection of modern art. It was closed by the Nazis and the building was destroyed in World War II. It was rebuilt in 1968 and used by East Germany as a guest house for official visitors to their capital of East Berlin. Since German reunification it has been used for exhibitions and cultural events.
