A crowd of German civilians is seen gathered in the Lustgarten. But the scene shifts suddenly to the Berlin Deutsches Stadion (German Stadium) in the Grunewald Race Course. Men in old-fashioned traditional military uniforms march into the stadium, carrying flags of the various German States. They parade around the perimeter of the stadium. Flag of the Weimar Republic flies over the principal building in the stands. The flag bearers on the field lower their flags, in salute. Next, Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg and his deputy, General Erich Ludendorff, enter the field, leading several military officers, together with a civilian, carrying a a sign reading: "I.G.I.D." They are followed by a long line of civilians. Spectators are on their feet in the stands where some men wave their hats and some women wave handkerchiefs. (World War I; World War 1; WWI; WW1)
