March 12th 1938 - occupation of Austria


March 12th 1938: A month after he appointed himself commander of the armed forces Adolf Hitler orders the occupation of Austria. In vain, the Austrian Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg attempts to prevent the occupation by referendum and is thereafter forced by Hitler to resign. Arthur Seyss-Inquart becomes the new chancellor. With him, who was sentenced to death at the Nuremberg Trials, the racial fanaticism of the Nazis finds its way into the country. The 12th of March, welcomed joyously by sections of the public, meant the persecution and extermination of the Jewish population of Austria.
