This is a summary me and Mechi Anelo did in pairs for a project.

Anschluss was a political union. Hitler encouraged the Nazis in Austria to stir up trouble for the government, they organized demonstrations calling for union with Germany. Hitler felt that Germany and Austria should be together, so he told Schuschnigg, that only Anschluss would bring peace. As Schuschnigg didn’t agree with Hitler’s plans, he asked for help to Britain and France, but they refused. So Schuschnigg called a plebiscite in which 99% of the Austrian population voted in favor of this union under the eye of the nazis troops. Once the plebiscite was called Britain was giving her support. Hitler  sent troops over to Austria during the plebiscite in case he lost and to push people. Before the plebiscite Hitler said he would solve the economical problems that Austria was dealing with at the moment; but what he really meant was that he was going to unite Germany and Austria for a better Germany, as all the soldiers, weapons, and its rich gold and iron deposits would be given to her.

All this done meant that Germany had broken the third point of the Treaty of Versailles: «German territories and colonies», which says that she was  forbade  to join together with its former ally Austria.
