On Sunday morning, May 14, 1933, the propaganda film Deutschland erwacht (Germany Awakes) is screened at 9 and 11 a.m. in the Tonkino Fischer. Founded in 1914, the movie theater at Linzer Strasse 83 seated about 400 people. While the "Turks Deliverance Celebration" (Türkenbefreiungsfeier) of the Austrian Homeland Protection (Heimatschutz) is taking place in the nearby gardens of Schönbrunn Palace, adherents of National Socialism watch a so-called "document of the rebirth of Germany." The almost one-hour sound film produced on behalf of the NSDAP's Reich Propaganda Headquarters (Reichspropagandaleitung) passed the German film censorship board on April 19, 1933, and the Vienna film screening office in the following month. Germany Awakes was intended as an official documentation of the Nazi "seizure of power." It includes footage of speeches and parades from Hitler's appointment as Reich chancellor on January 30, 1933, up to the passing of the Enablement Act on March 23, 1933, which transferred legislative power from the Reichstag to the government. It ends with the National Socialist swastika superimposed over the flag of the German Empire.
May 13, 1933 – 2 p.m.
