Nuremberg Rally

Sorting through some old papers belonging to my father I came across this postcard

It is addressed to my father, then living in Kent and signed by his school penfriend, Hans Meyer.  The message in English reads

I am here with the Hitler Youth in Nuremberg in the form of the ‘Reichspartietag.’  It is very grandiose.

It feels slightly shocking to read such a message about an event that had such ominous implications.  I wonder what happened to Hans in the years that followed?
