Don’t Mention The War

Situated on the shores of the Laacher See near Andernach in Germany, Abbey Maria Laach is a handsome 800 year-old center of devotion and learning with a gorgeous 18th century library and a dark history. During the years leading up to World War II, the Abbey leadership chose to embrace the Nazi movement and to support the deplorable acts of the German government. However, today we are just exploring the spectacular library. And, I’m sure they’re really, really sorry about the Nazi bits. You won’t even find a single copy of Mein Kampf in the library.
