Aerial shot of a street with flags flying and a banner showing an individual stepping on a swastika. Shots of pro-communist banners and posters, including several for Ernst Thaelmann, the KPD leader who ran against Hitler in 1932. Intertitles in Russian. An individual is shown constructing what appears to be a collecting box for the Communist party as a child watches. A star painted with a hammer and sickle and a photo of Thaelmann adorn the box, and a hand places coins into the box.
