On November 9, 1923, Adolf Hitler and his followers marched to Feldherrenhalle. The march, which was part of the Hitler-Ludendorff Putsch was ended bloodily by the police, 16 rebels and four police officers were killed. In memory of the putsch, Hitler led the annual "March on the Feldherrenhalle" and in honor of the soldiers killed a role of honour was affixed on the eastern side . Before that, there was a guard of honor of the SS which made sure that all the passerbys honored the slain with Nazi salute. Many Munich locals shunned out this way and went through a small alley behind the Feldherrenhalle. The Viscardigasse was since given the nickname Drückebergergasserl (Slacker Way).
