    On March 13, 1938, Reich Chancellor and Führer Adolf Hitler appointed Josef Bürckel as the Gauleiter (Nazi Governor) of Nazi-annexed Austria. By Hitler's special decree of April 23, 1938, Bürckel was also appointed the Reich Commissioner for the Reunification of Austria with the German Reich (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 407/1938). The Reich Commissioner was responsible for the transition and integration of Austria's state administrative functions into the larger German Reich. The position existed until March 31, 1940 when it was disbanded through Hitler's special decree of March 15, 1940 (Reichsgesetzblatt I, p. 539/1940).
