• Short Summary

    Nazis are among those entering the newly elected Reichstag in Berlin - protesters clash outside.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Berlin. Critical Days in Germany. Hotheads of rival Parties clash with Police at newly elected Reichstag."

    Berlin, Germany.

    Exterior views of the Reichstag building.

    Group of brown shirts from the Nazi party walk in. The wear swastika armbands and raise their hands in salute as they walk past. They give a quick 'Heil Hitler'.

    Reich chancellor Dr Heinrich Bruning walks from his car into the building.

    Hermann Goering walks into the building (He has just been elected President of the Reichstag).

    Groups of young men are gathered shouting slogans.

    Police on foot and horseback clash with chanting protesters amongst the trees of a nearby park.

    (What few bits of commentary there are, are in German - mainly natural sound)

    N.B. The name of the German Chancellor appears to be spelt both Bruning and Bruening - it depends on how you feel about translating umlauts.
