Adolf Hitler Homework
A. Description of an Early Nazi Rally by Louise Solmitz, Schoolteacher
The April sun shone hot like summer and turned everything into a picture of gay expectation. There was immaculate order and discipline . . . the hours passed. . . . Expectations rose. There stood Hitler in a simple black coat and looked over the crowd. Waiting. A forest of swastika pennants swished up, the jubilation of this moment was given vent in a roaring salute. . . How many look up to him with a touching faith!
