Germany as we know it may have been one of the most dangerous countries back then. But back in the great depression Germany was at its worst they had no one to turn to for help, But then someone from WWI had decided to run for chancellor of Germany, his name was Adolf Hitler. Adolf helped influence the great depression instead of considering all blacks dangerous, Jews were the reason they picked that made Germany horrible and thus Hitler's reign of terror had begun starting with his campaigning. A quote from The History place helps us by stating “Hitler offered something to everyone: work to the unemployed; prosperity to failed business people; profits to industry; expansion to the Army; social harmony and an end of class distinctions to idealistic young students; and restoration of German glory to those in despair. He promised to bring order amid chaos; a feeling of unity to all and the chance to belong.
For his bravery, he was awarded two Iron Crosses. While Hitler was recovering from his injuries after the war, communism was starting to become popular, which he hated. Some Jews were leaders of the communist groups, which encouraged his disgust for Jews and Communists. After the war, Hitler was asked to join a military intelligence unit, where he kept tabs on the German Worker’s Party. Hitler built up the party, changing
Among the other countries, Germany was certainly not the only one to use propaganda against the unwanted. Hitler’s hatred for the Jews influenced other countries to see propaganda. Hitler blamed the Jewish people for their loss of World War I, also for prolonging the war to gain wealth, and using the constitutional democracy to weaken the politics of the nation; and through the use of propaganda , he used the Jews as a scapegoat or as a group of people for germany's defeat in World War one. Hitler using propaganda convinced thousands of people that is was ok to kill countless Jews and many others. In the book the rize of the Nazis, it is stated “Goldhagen suggests that the nazi were expert propagandist, using their talents to convince ordinary germans that jews were the enemies of national socialism”the nazis were among the most sophisticated and innovative users of propaganda in history¨ The definition of propaganda is “ ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one’s cause or to damage an opposing cause¨ according to the website www.merriam-webster.com Propaganda use can be exploited through art,
He ran Adolf’s presidential campaign which gave him recognition of being the “twentieth century master of his practice”. He was also accountable for influencing boycotts against Jewish businesses and staging of the opening of Reichstag. The significance of Goebbels is that his control of the propaganda machine lead many to see that Hitler may be the change that they wanted. The Final Solution was a plan that was made and carried out by the German Nazis in the 20th century. It was planned at the Wannsee Conference, at meeting between the SS and the German government.
After Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles nations of Germany had live miserable lives, because high inflation happened in Germany. Germany made a wrong decision when they had to pay money. Instead of taxing people to give money for the damage to Allies, Germany borrowed a lot of money from other countries. As a result they had to pay more money with a huge debt. However German government printed more money to pay off the debt but it caused inflation.
I will explain why I think that the putsch itself failed, but successfully, if indirectly played a part in how the Nazis rose to power. In 1923, Stresemann called off the passive resistance in the Ruhr and agreed that Germany would start paying the reparation fees again. Many right-winged enemies of the Weimar Republic felt betrayed, humiliated and wounded in their pride. Their
- This was the beginnings of Hitler’s German police state, where simply civil rights were not a guarantee. - Political opponents, particularly those associated with the German Communists movement were treated to intimidation, persecution and discriminatory legislations. - For the first two years of his rule (1933-35) Hitler set about bringing other political parties, state governments and both cultural and professional organisations in line with Nazi Goals and plans. - Culture, the economy, education and law all came under Nazi control during this period. - Fear was key – by causing fear, people turn to a leader of note and stature, and Hitler fit the
Germany lost opportunities to fix its’ economy because of losing land, and Germans wanted the land back, which is exploited by Hitler by saying he was in favor of war do they could get the land back. Paying reparations caused Germans to lose self-respect and made them angry. Hitler again exploits the Germans displeasure by discontinuing the payments. Again, the Germans are exploited by Hitler by restoring pride when they had been humiliated for being blamed for the war. This caused many Germans to accept the Nazi regime and probably join the army.
The author explains, for those people who do stuff that harms other becomes cruel. There are many reasons why people behave like this, the reason might be lack of happiness, etc. The author provides examples or some evidences, when Hitler killed millions of Jews and soldiers for just to become powerful, or when Gandhi, Martin Luther king, etc were assassinated in front of their eyes for doing that no one could imagine. Those examples tells us why this world needs more educated peoples to run a group or community for a good reason. I agree with Wiesel because we see this in communist countries.
This theme of ambition for power can be seen in the modern world through the similarities between Adolf Hitler and Macbeth. Adolf Hitler was a German politician who became the leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler was the dominant voice in the administration and execution of the mass killing (Holocaust) of millions of Jewish and those who were not of Hitler’s want including homosexuals and those who suffered a disability. Hitler desired for Germany to have power and influence over the world, he believed that in order for this to happen he had to get rid of those who were not part of the Aryan race as he wanted Germany to be ‘pure'. This desire would ensure that he gained power.
