Albert Speer, the son of Adolf Hitler's chief architect, attacked a decison to turn Nazi rally grounds into a UNESCO site, according to DPA report Monday.

The municipality of Nuremberg decided to seek UNESCO recognition to turn rally grounds into a heritage site because it was becoming increasing tired of the high maintenance costs of the crumbling, cracked buildings.

Albert Speer senior was contracted to design the vast park as a place where thousands of Nazis could hear Adolf Hitler speak.

DPA reported Albert Speer junior said in an interview with German news magazine Focus, that a UNESCO listing was "a weird idea," going the wrong way to deal with Nazi site, and totally out of line with other nations' ways of preserving a repugnant past.
