The Hofburg is the former principal imperial palace of the Habsburg dynasty rulers and today serves as the official residence and workplace of the President of Austria. It is located in the center of Vienna and was built in the 13th century and expanded several times. About 100 yards from where I stood at the Heldenplatz “Heros Square” is where Hitler announced the Anschluss - annexation of Austria into Nazi Germany on 12 March 1938. During the announcement, 250,000 ecstatic Viennese cheered him on Heldenplatz. That square symbolized centuries of the power of the German-speaking nation. Yet Hitler disliked the Habsburg monarchy and their multiethnical Empire. The name Heroes’s Square is unrelated to the Nazis but dates from the Napoleonic Wars and victory over the Turks. The idea of an Anschluss a united Austria and Germany that would form a Greater Germany, began after the unification of Germany excluded Austria and the German Austrians from the Prussian-dominated German Empire in 1871. Following the end of World War I with the fall of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in 1918, the newly formed Republic of German-Austria attempted to form a union with Germany, but the Treaty of Saint Germain -10 September 1919, and the Treaty of Versailles (28 June 1919) forbade both the union and the continued use of the name German-Austria and stripped Austria of some of its territories.
