While the party is in progress, something completely different is happening on the streets. SA men are attacking everything Jewish and Judith witnesses her father, a book dealer, being beating to death. Yet she still goes to the party later, for her own safety. When she tells people what has happened she is met by polite doubt. The Minister of Propaganda arrives, dressed for a gala. He wants to hear a happy song after a strenous day. But the song is interrupted as Judith is unceremoniously fired from UFA films.
