• Short Summary

    Adolf Hitler receives a tumultuous welcome during tour of Austrian capital.

  • Description

    15th March 1938

    Vienna, Austria. German voiceover.

    Adolf Hitler (the Fuhrer) rides in an open car past cheering crowds.

    Vehicles carrying German troops drive up a winding road. People on the roadside give a fascist salute as they pass. Quick POV shot from vehicle.

    Shots of crowds in Vienna waiting for Hitler. Lots of swastikas and salutes. Crowds are taking up every possible vantage point to see the Fuhrer. Hitler rides in open car past cheering crowds. Hitler gets out of the car and after meeting officers inspects the Guard of Honour.

    A huge crowd has formed in a city square to cheer Hitler who appears on a balcony. The crowd chant some kind of oath. Hitler strolls up and down the balcony past other dignitaries (possibly Austrian politicians).

    N.B. This film is quite scratched.
