Not to be outdone, many senior Nazis collected as well, including, most prolifically, Reichsmarshall Herman Göring. This massive carpet became the property of the state of Bavaria after the war. It was displayed for a time in a room used for hosting foreign dignitaries -- East German leader Erich Honecker once stood on it with Bavarian Governor Franz Josef Strauss.
