Exhibit of the Month: Railway detonators from the German Railway, 20th century

Photo: A detonator is situated on a piece of rail. The round disc is about as wide as the top surface of the rail and one centimetre high. Beside transport containers in the warning colours of red and yellow, with the symbol for explosives.

Highly explosive and loud - and perhaps lifesaving: Detonators as acoustic warning when visibility is poor.

Photo Exhibition: Technology for Hitler's Olympics

Photo: A view of the upper tier of the Olympic Stadium. Resembling a street light, the loudspeaker is positioned above an entrance in the centre of the image. Behind it we see a closed structure made of stone, with windows pointing toward the field.

The 1936 Olympics as a testing ground for new media: For the first time there are live reports by radio and even by television.
