Interwar Germany, Nuremberg rally 1923
Scenes from "German Day," September 2, 1923, with onscreen titles that describe some of the action. This was a rally of nationalist parties, which took place two months before the Munich Putsch. The "German Day" rally was the prototype for the official Nazi Party Day rallies held in Nuremberg after the seizure of power in 1933.
Men from various nationalist parties march down the street in Nuremberg. Among them are World War I veterans, Nazi SA members, and others. Crowds of onlookers line the street and lean out windows, waving flags or handkerchiefs. The angle switches to show the parade from the back. Several of the marchers carry flags with swastikas on them. Adolf Hitler, in a light-colored coat and civilian clothes, watches the parade from the sidelines. Erich Ludendorff is also visible, wearing a Prussian helmet in the foreground of the shot at 01:14:18. The last shot shows Hitler talking with a group of men.
