  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown. 1938?

    Sudetenland, Czechoslovakia / Germany.

    Shots of military vehicles carrying German troops into this German speaking area of Czechoslovakia. People greet the troops with cheers and with flowers. Chants of Seig Heil can be heard and people are waving Nazi flags. Travel shot from vehicle as it passes under banner - 'Fuhrer Wir Danken'. A German military band play from the back of a lorry as they drive along. CU signpost in street. More shots of lorries carrying troops through crowd lined streets. A woman walks along the road scattering flowers as she goes. German leader Adolf Hitler stands up in an open car receiving the cheers of the people. Crowds follow the car saluting and cheering. Exterior shots of what is presumably the Town Hall. Swastika flags are draped from the building. Crowds give the Nazi salute. Hitler walks onto the balcony. The crowd cheer even louder.

    N.B. Presumably this is Hitler's visit to the Sudetenland in early October 1938. Comb Print in UN 105 A.
