Holocaust Monument

In violation of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany initiated an ambitious military rearmament program to restore its military strength; covert air reconnaissance missions commenced. Germany began to secure its national borders.
On January 26, Germany and Poland signed a non-aggression agreement.
The SS became a dominant force in Germany after Ernst Rohm, commander of the Storm Troopers (SA) and other prominent members of the SA leadership who threatened Hitler's authority, were murdered
on Hitler's orders on June 30, the "Night of the
Long Knives". All concentration camps came under
SS jurisdiction.
On July 25, Austrian chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss
was assassinated by Austrian Nazis in a failed attempt to gain control of that country.
With the death of German president Paul von
Hindenburg on August 2, Hitler moved quickly to
establish a dictatorship. Offices of President
and Chancellor were combined. Hitler became Supreme Commander of German military forces.
The military no longer bore allegiance to the
State; the German soldier in his oath swore "I will
render unconditional obedience to Adolph Hitler,
the Fuhrer".
New laws discriminating against Jews and other
minorities were enacted; unofficial boycotting
and random attacks against Jews continued.
