Shot of people using or exchanging the vouchers (for money?).

A band plays while the men carry the wreath up steps, lay it down, and salute. Location moves to Rome, where Hermann Goering speaks to the "German colony." He stands at a podium beneath a portrait of Hitler and speaks. Various close up and longer views.
