If you feel like you need to brush up on your history of Nazi Germany or you’re simply interested in how it might have looked in the world of LEGO, this series has you covered. LEGO buff Fithboy spent his January going through the history of the Third Reich with his beloved LEGO figurines, setting and photographing some of the most important scenes from this terrible and tumultuous historic period.

40,000 SA and SS men are sworn in as auxiliary police.
The Reichstag building is burned, probably by the Nazis.
Emergency Powers are given to Hitler.
The Nazis open the first concentration camp.
Nazis define Jews as non-Aryan and boycott Jewish owned business.
Jewish books are burned in Berlin and other German cities.
Jews lose almost almost all rights and are opressed by the Nuremberg Laws.
Kristallnacht; Night of the Broken Glass, riots that destroy Jewish shops and business. German police overlook it.
Germany invades Poland. WWII has begun in Europe.
Stalin’s Russian troops invade Eastern Poland. He and Hitler plan to split the land between them when the country is occupied.
Auschwitz is opened. Jews from around Europe will be killed here in their millions over the next few years.
D-Day. Allied troops land in Normandy.
As the Allied forces push through Germany they liberate concentration camps.

your goal is reached, that people discuss it,
but nothing more and nothing less …
This was awesome. Good job.
Very educational, I love it!
16 photos of this poop??! Is anyone really unimpressed with the level of lego commitment (the same background for every shot)? He turned fucking D Day into 4 dudes on a beach. Also why is Marge Simpson Burning Books in Berlin in 1933? This is a poor effort to try and capture the pain and turmoil that was WWII.
where to buy hitler mini fig?
So everything should be a source of fun !? Sorry but I think this is disrespectful.
It’s not fun, it’s just a different form of illustration to educate about important history. Using one form or another doesn’t change the meaning of what happened in the past.
According me, these legos express nothing at all. If they cater to small children, it fails because you have to preserve the youngest of the horrors of war (they will have all the time to discover these pains), and if they cater to older it fails too because they say nothing, and brings nothing but confusion ; there is plenty of ways to educate about those horrors.
The same guy makes stuff with Star Wars or Harry Potter. Sorry but in my opinion, war is not a subject like any other.
Maybe I am too old fashioned…
