Nuremberg Germany Date:1934, September 14 Duration:11 min 57 sec Sound:Yes
Scene is in the Luitpoldhalle meeting hall at the Nazi party Congress Grounds (Reichsparteitagsgelände) in Nuremberg Germany, during the 6th Party Congress of 1934. Rudolf Hess strides to the podium and simply says "The leader speaks," whereupon the assembly cheers enthusiastically, as Adolf Hitler stands quietly at the podium, until the cheering subsides. He then begins his speech noting that the 6th Party Congess is ending. As he continues to speak about the significance of the National Socialist Party, extoling its virtues and importance, the camera shows closeups of party leaders listening, including: Rudolf Hess; Joseph Goebbels; Hermann Goering; Heinrich Himmler; Baldur von Schirach, and others. As Hitler reminisces about the days when it was hard to be a National Socialist, the assembly responds with cheers of recognition. Thereafter, the film shifts back and forth between Hitler at the podium, and scenes of the audience responding, and of individuals listening intently. Glimpse of Goering standing and looking about, as Hess takes the podium in the noisy wake of Hitler's speech. Hitler giving arm-bent Nazi half salute. As enthusiastic cheering continues, Hess turns again and salutes Hitler. But it is difficult to quiet the crowd. Finally, Hess shouts that the "The Party is Hitler's but Germany is Hitler's and Hitler is Germany's (Die Partei ist Hitler, aber Deutschland ist Hitler und Hitler ist Deutschland). Then he turns and leads a round of "Sieg Heils" for Hitler. Then the entire assembly begins to sing the Nazi Party anthem (Horst-Wessel lied), in a slow deliberate tempo, as light fills the stage area of the hall. Camera focuses on a giant swastika, zooms in, and fades to marching troops.
