Austria Chancellor Assassinated
The Nazis attempted to stage a coup in Austria. They took over the Chancellery in Vienna and killed Austrian Chancellor Engelbert Dolfuss. The Austrian Army rapidly put down the insurrection. Hitler was discouraged from any direct support of the coup attempt by the threats of Italian intervention.
