Hitler returns to Berlin from Vienna after the annexation of Austria. Shots of his plane touching down, with Nazi flags flying and a crowd waiting to greet him. Uniformed members of the League of German Girls and Hitler Youth await Hitler's arrival. Shots of his motorcade driving through the crowds. Aerial shots of Hitler and Hermann Goering walking into the Chancellery, then waving from the balcony. Aerial pans across the huge crowd.
More scenes from Austria: Austrians waving Nazi flags; civilians marching down the streets giving the Nazi salute; Arthur Seyss-Inquart saluting. German soldiers are welcomed by flag-waving crowds as they enter Austria. Austrian customs officials remove the border barrier between Germany and Austria. Hitler travels from Linz to Vienna by car, greeted by adoring crowds. Men of the Austrian army are shown partaking in a ceremony in which they swear allegiance to Hitler and Germany, and are thus incorporated into the Germany army. "Deutschland Ueber Alles" plays while the men take the oath.
