However never there Hitler was, but sent with the opening the realm propaganda Minister. The fascist theatre ideology was not in Saarbruecken however from long duration. Inthe war years large parts of the building were destroyed, however large parts of the technology remained and are to today still components one of the technically most flexible national theatre stages of Germany.
