Hitler took over Austria in 1938 because many links were shared between Germany. He created an 'Anschluss' with Austria. Hitler also was born in Austria and this made him want Austria. Hitler also had the idea of 'Lebensraum' or Living room/space in which he gelt was needed, so he took Austria. Austria did not really mind this as it had economic problems within from being separated from Germany previously.

If you are in PA Cyber it is because Hitler believed in uniting the German-speaking peoples of Europe. And that can be found on page 828 of your textbook... =D

Also, he tried to take over Austria in 1934 but was stopped by Mussolini. When Hitler allied with him, he was able to take over Austria without interference! (Sarah)

Austrians are Ethnic Germans.

How did Germany take over Austria?

Germany tried to take over Austria almost as soon as he came to power, and had the Austrian (leader) Dolfuss, murdered. He then tried again in March of 1938. Hitler told the SS or SA to put pressure on Austria by parading through the streets of Austria demonstrating how good Germany is and how Austria should accept to the Anschluss 'Union' between Austria and Germany. These men were also violent and the Austrian police were struggling to control the violence and corruption. Then Hitler said something along the lines of: ''You seem to be having trouble, put my man in charge of the police force and he will sort everything out.'' The Austrian police were reluctant but Hitler had one of his raging furies at the new Austrian prime-minister and he gave up to Hitler. Hitler was so confident that he called a plebiscite 'vote' in which he cheated when German officials counted the votes, Hitler claimed that 99.75% of Austrian voters voted for the 'Anschluss' between Germany and Austria to be conducted. Hitler now had full power over Austria, had control over the whole Austrian army, and economic supplies such as iron and steel.
