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

    Germany.

    Adolf Hitler stands on platform. A man (Possibly Dr Robert Ley) introduces the meeting of 52,000 men of the Nazi Labour Front. Hitler steps to the microphone. The men bring their shovels to their shoulders. CU men beating drums. CU shovel and mans boots. CU hands on shovel handle. Men take oath. Men call out where they come from and end with a chant of "Ein Volk, ein Fuhrer, ein Reich". CU Hitler. More chants from the men and shots of Hitler. Hitler speaks of the importance of work to the future of Germany. The men march past the camera with their shovels singing a song.

    Torch lit night time parade. Men sing a song. A man gives a speech to a crowd of brown shirts. A Nazi flag flies behind him.

    CU trumpet. CU young boys playing drums (very Triumph of the Wills). Pan across Hitler Youth boys banging drums. Hitler arrives at rally. More shots of drummers intercut with Hitler. Lots of cheering. Lots of Nazi salutes. Young man makes speech. Lots of shots around packed stadium. CUs and wide shots. The youngster finishes his speech and then Hitler steps forward to speak. Lots of CU of Hitler Youth listening. The crowd cheer and salute at one point in Hitler's speech. He pauses and then continues even more forcefully. Hitler travels through the crowd in an open car accepting the cheers and salutes of the massive crowd.

    N.B. Some of this material looks very dupey.

    Actually that is not Dr Robert Ley but Reichsarbeitsfuhrer Konstantin Hierl, head of the Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD) introducing Hitler.
