Arthur Seyss-Inquart Tries to Take Partial Credit for Unification of Austria with Germany

Arthur Seyss-Inquart, 1940

Speaking at the Sportpalast in Berlin, Arthur Seyss-Inquart tries to take partial credit for the events leading up to the unification of Austria with Germany.

Seyss-Inquart says:

"The National Socialist Party in Austria never tried to hide its inclination for a greater Germany. That Austria would one day return to the Reich was a matter of course for all National Socialists and for true Germans in Austria.

I asked the Führer for armed assistance to save Austria from a civil war and from the fate of Spain because I had information that the workers' militia was to act as an armed military force at the Schuschnigg plebiscite."

This stands in stark contrast to Seyss-Inquart's testimony during the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal when he dies that he never invited the Nazis into Austria.
