This April 1938 newsreel report of British Pathé and UFA documents the enormous popular support across Germany for the union (Anschluss) of Austria with the Reich.

The historic occasion is marked across the country with the ringing of bells in church towers, and large evening rallies and celebrations. In an expression of national solidarity, the sounds of whistles across the Reich signal the start of a two-minute pause of work and traffic. People display the swastika banner at their homes and places of work, and large, joyful crowds greet Hitler’s appearance. In a national referendum, some 99 percent of voters mark “Yes” on their ballots as an expression of support for the Anschluss. Even skeptical foreign observers acknowledged that this overwhelming vote of approval reflected the popular mood.
