The facing poem by Baldur von Schirach reads:
|This memorial at the Hofbräuhaus in Munich commemorated the announcement of the Nazi Party platform (the 25 Points) in 1920.|
|The memorial at the Feldherrnhalle in Munich, where the police opened fire on Hitler’s putschists in 1923.|
|The two “Honor Temples” in Munich, where the sixteen who died in the 1923 putsch were buried after 1935.|
