This is the day originally set by former Chancellor Kurt Schuschnigg for Austrians to vote in a plebiscite on whether they would remain independent or come under the rule of Nazi Germany. Because the German army moved in two days ago, however, the national plebiscite isn't held — only a few rural sites dare do so and some of them vote for independence.

Instead, the Nazi controlled legislature authorizes the Anschluss with Germany and Austria's transformation into the Ostmark province. A plebiscite to ratify this action is scheduled for April 10.
