    Tilt down from snow covered rooftops. Past poster of Adolf Hitler to crowd singing a song in German about 'Heimat' or homeland. Lots of shots of children giving Nazi salutes.

    Shots of a man holding a small swastika flag, even his dog has a swastika on his back.

    Travel shots through saluting crowds. Swastikas are everywhere.

    Shot of people standing proudly by a poster 'Sieg Heil dem Fuhrer' above a picture of Hitler. Shots of Church tower as bells ring in celebration.

    Group of men march and give a nazi salute while singing. More shots along flag bedecked streets.

    N.B. This looks like camera rushes of a Saarland town after German regained control of the region.
