The "Anschluss Monument" Oberschützen was erected in Oberschützen in southern Burgenland after the "Anschluss" of Austria to the National Socialist German Reich in 1938/39.

It is considered the largest such National Socialist structure on Austrian soil. It was intended to "replace" another memorial marker erected in Oberschützen, which was also referred to as the "Anschluss Monument": the "Small Anschluss Monument" from 1931 - an "ancient Germanic sacrificial stone" erected on the occasion of the ten-year affiliation of the former Hungarian territory to Austria.
