Below, in the midst of a story about Hitler's takeover of Austria, we find the sentence: "Strange men embraced." I suppose we would recast that now. On the jump, church bells ring throughout Vienna from the moment Hitler crosses the border until he arrives at his hotel. Jewish doctors and lawyers are forbidden to practice and Jews are beaten. The head of the Austrian Evangelical Church telegraphs Hitler on behalf of his 330,000 church members, hailing him as "Our Rescuer."   

Quote of the day: "The German Reich as it stands today is inviolable! No one can shatter it!" --Adolf Hitler, speaking from the balcony of his hotel suite
