Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:Also known as the Nuremberg Rally, the annual rally of the Nazi Party in Germany, immortalized by Leni Riefenstahl in several films, including Triumph of the Will, filmed at the 1934 event. The theme of the 1939 rally, given the name, “Rally of Peace”, was cancelled due to Germany’s assault on Poland, September 1, 1939, which began World War II. This rally was to occur on September 2. Thus the 1938 was the last annual rally
