Our first stop in Europe was Nuremberg, Germany, infamous as a Nazi center of activity and for the trials of Nazi war criminals, but a lovely city to visit today. We happened to visit at the opening of the Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival. This city is using its dark past as a tool to promote peace and human equality in the world. Not only does it host the festival, German school children all visit the city during their education so they can learn first hand about the Nazi era. A street below the main city square was lined with rows of luncheon tables that stretched on for several blocks awaiting the arrival of festival attendees from all over the world.
The main town square was full of booths and strolling visitors. You could buy just about anything, from food to clothing and more.
Many Nuremberg dogs shared the square with their people. When I asked to take a photo, the people would smile, happy that I found their pets appealing.
I wondered about how these supreme sniffers could stand the tempting aromas coming from the stands offering what we Americans might call “dogs” in a variety of types. Of course I had to try some, and they were delicious.
