Scene shifts to Adolf Hitler, standing in an open Mercedes Benz 770 K car (exhaust pipes extend from its hood). His car leads a line of cars carrying Nazi leaders, along a street in Nuremberg, Bavaria. Crowds lining the sidewalks salute and cheer him.

A huge crowd is assembled in the square. Spectators filling an outdoor seating area, rise to salute as the motorcade approaches. View from window of building overlooking the Schöner Brunnen. An SA (Sturmabteilung) band begins to play and formations of SA troops march along the street. Spectators, at the market square seating area, rise and salute as SA leader Viktor Lutze marches past.
