The Nazi secret police visit Sigmund Freud's home in Vienna, Austria. They confiscate his passports and other travel documents, preventing him from being able to legally leave Austria.

Freud had long resisted any attempt to get him out of Austria and away from the Nazis, even after the Anschluss on March 15th and the incorporation of Austria into Nazi Germany. After his daughter Anna is detained and interrogated by the Gestapo, however, Sigmund Freud finally realizes that he needs to leave is if he and his family are to survive.
