A meeting of the Banat Germans in their capital and seat, Petrovgrad. The speech is being held by their leader, Dr Sepp Janko, while, in the background, a local SS orchestra waits for its turn to perform. The room is covered with swastika flags, and the stage is supplemented with pagan symbols: the Man rune (life), on the sides, and, at the central spot, the Odal rune with sword and wheat ears (blood and soil), the symbol of the Banat Germans.
