The Reich Chancellery and Führerbunker Complex: An Illustrated History of the Seat of the Nazi Regime is a 2006 book by Steven Lehrer, in which Lehrer recounts the history of a group of Berlin buildings, from their construction in the 18th century until their complete destruction during and after World War II.
Later the Palais had a more distinguished owner, Prince Anton Radziwill, a Polish-Lithuanian and Prussian nobleman, aristocrat, musician and politician. A guest at the Palais Radziwill was Polish composer and virtuoso pianist Frédéric Chopin.
In 1875 the feuding Radziwill heirs sold the Palais to the German Reich.
Though Hitler lived in the old Chancellery when he was in Berlin, he ordered the building of a larger, grander structure, the New Reich Chancellery, completed January 1939. Hitler’s Reich Chancellery was not only a center of government but, in Winston Churchill’s words, the hub of “a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark, lamentable catalogue of human crime.”
