Crowds line the streets of Vienna. A procession moves down the street; a band plays. Church bells peal as nuns and Catholic clerics move down the street. Cardinal Theodor Innitzer, surrounded by other clergy, waves and blesses the crowd. The scene changes to show Innitzer giving a speech in which he says (in part) that religion and love of the fatherland belong together. Cardinal Theodor Innitzer was the primate of Austria. In 1938 he publicly endorsed the Anschluss and met with Hitler, but he later repudiated the Nazis.
