Political History

Recent events in both Germany and Austria are causing Austrian Nazis to become ever more belligerent. Throughout Austria meetings are held to celebrate Adolf Hitler's electoral victory in Germany while assailing Austrian Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss for standing in the way of a unification of Germany with Austria.

A rally in Vienna draws at least 20,000 Nazis and Austrian Nazi leader Alfred Frauenfeld tells the crowd:

"Our chancellor is not Engelbert Dollfuss, our chancellor is Adolf Hitler!"

Other speakers warn it's too late to complain about "legality," a clear reference to the extra-legal tactics which the Nazi Party has used with great success in Germany so far.
