Nazi War Ensign flying above the Zeughaus (old armory) museum building in Berlin on Heldengedenktag (Day of Commemoration of Heroes) in World War 2. Open car arrives carrying Adolf Hitler. Marshal Hermann Goering salutes with his baton as other German officers render Nazi salute. Hitler and Goering shake hands. Hitler then shakes hands with Marshal Wilhelm Keitel; Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz; SS leader Heinrich Himmler; Marshal Fedor von Bock; Marshal Erhard Milch and a local official. Hitler and Goering lead the group into the museum, past displays of war materiel and a large standing crowd of participants. Hitler and his military entourage are seated as the courtyard is filled by the music of Bruckner's Symphony No.7 in E major. Hitler seems enthralled. Other participants also listen quietly. While music continues, Hitler quietly steps to a podium decorated with the Naval ensign. A mass of flag bearers from units of all armed services stand behind him. He speaks softly about the struggle to defend Europe against the Bolsheviks. He mentions the Wehrmacht and those who have fallen in defense of homeland and people, who will be remembered always, by the nation.
