Germany's Union ("Anschluss") With Austria. 1938

The union was widely popular amongst the Austrians. Hitler's vision of a big powerful Reich had appealed to them too.

March 13, 1938. Hitler triumphantly enters Vienna.

Hitler with Seyss Inquart the governor of Austria. He was Hitler's man in Austria. Hitler had earlier forced Schusnigg, the Austrian Chancellor to resign in favor of Seyss Inquart. After the Union he was made a governor of the new province of the Reich.

The darker side of the union. Hitherto safe and prosperous Jews in Austria began to be persecuted. Here they are made to wash the roads of Vienna.

Jewish property was confiscated and the expulsion of Jews from Austria began

In the almost tribal mentality exhilaration that even these Austrian girls felt forgotten was the persecution of the Jews. But nemesis awaited them as the Red Army marched into Austrian ion 1945.

"Mander s'ischt time!" ("Men, it's time!") Was a famous battle cry of the Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Hofer during the uprising in 1809 against the Bavarians and French. The same words were chosen by the Austrian Chancellor Kurt von Schuschnigg, in a speech on 9 March 1938 in view of the threat posed by Germany to emphasize that he would fight for a free and independent Austria. After the "Anschluss" of Austria, the Nazis took on this slogan to imprison politicians such as Kurt von Schuschnigg (center) as well as Jews, Social Democrats and other opponents of the "Anschluss" or drive. Only then would Austria be really free, so goes the statement of the postcard.

On August 23rd 1942, 330,000 men of the German 6th Army smashed through Soviet defenses outside the city of Stalingrad. For 162 terrible days the Soviet defenders of Stalingrad make the Germans pay in blood with savage hand to hand combat in a maze of ruined factories, shops and apartment blocks. Outnumbered and outgunned the Red Army suffer appalling losses, but by clinging to their positions they draw the Germans into a trap from which there will be no escape. For the first time, extraordinary aerial reconnaissance photographs actually taken during the course of the battle are combined with the latest in computer technology to create a 3D model of the city. With archive film, dramatic re-enactments and powerful eye witness testimony, we tell the incredible story of the epic battle that turned the entire course of WWII.
