The Austrian Nazi-dominated regime, under SeyssInquart, was allowed to go through the motions of power only from 12 to 14 March. A Gauleiter (provincial party leader) was then appointed. Even the name of Austria was eliminated – the country was renamed the Ostmark (the East March), and later the Donau und Alepengau. The original nine provinces were transformed into seven Reichsgau, all vestiges of Austrian central government were finally dissolved and orders came directly from Berlin.
