Nazi tribute to German industrialist Gustav Krupp

Hitler congratulates industrialist Gustav Krupp after presenting him with a Nazi party honor. After the ceremony, they toured a Krupp factory. This footage comes from the film "The Nazi Plan," produced and used by the United States in the prosecution at the Nuremberg trials.


In recognition of his service to the people and the Reich, the Fuehrer presented the honoree with the Golden Medal of Honor of the NSDAP [Nazi party]. He was the first German to receive the War Service Cross first class and the first German businessman to receive the award Pioneer of Labor with the associated golden designation of honor. After the ceremony, the Fuehrer toured the Krupp factory.
