Surprisingly, more than 3 million East Germans escaped to West Germany between 1945 and 1961. Since the east berlin citizens were understandably unhappy with the consequences of the wall, It would be very difficult for the GDR to keep citizens in East Berlin as seen in pictures of men and women of all ages trying to escape.
However while he was in the prison, Hitler wrote many books to gain more power, and books that he wrote were based on Nazi’s idea. Some books contained racism and abolishing the treaty of Versailles and dreaming about the large Germany again. Actually many people read those books and they started to support Hitler. Also, For Hitler to rise to power, he would have to use legal and constitutional methods, not violence. Therefore, he organized the propaganda and Merges with other right wing parties.
Even with the nomination of Berlin holding the Olympics in Germany, the Nazis intended to use the 1936 Games in Berlin, Germany as a showcase for the "new Germany,” which was now a nazi reigning, Aryan-race only area. The Nazis also hoped to gain money from the thousands of tourists who could and most likely would bring needed foreign currency into the country. Another reason why the USA shouldn’t have boycotted the 1936 Berlin Olympics was because of the participation rules Germany had set up. Germany originally had banned athletes of the non-Aryan race to attend and participate in the Games. After being condemned internationally by other nations of their actions, Germany allowed all athletes of races and religions to participate in the Olympics.
At a similar time, the author implies that American’ reasoning skills were much unfit due to the overwhelming power of mass media that bombarded the consciousness of American citizens with terrible news and even additional terrible forecasts regarding the longer term of the USA (Gore, 2007). In addition to context, the military initiated by the Bush administration were amply supported by Americans shortly after
This caused many Germans to accept the Nazi regime and probably join the army. Germany had little flexibility with its’ army, both in size and actions, due to the restrictions, which caused Germany to begrudge the surrounding countries. The Nazi regime took advantage of what the Germans didn’t like about the Treaty of Versailles, by breaking some aspects of it, in order to gain support and increase their numbers so they could go to war. There are many reasons why the Treaty of Versailles caused World War Two, but there still might have been other causes; just like how Germany was blamed for World War One, it is unfair to put all the blame of the treaty without acknowledging other possible
Modern presidents “have a duty constantly to defend themselves publicly, to promote policy initiatives nationwide, and to inspirit the population” (Tulis 1987, 4). This is achieved through the rhetorical presidency which is a theory based on how the modern twentieth and twenty-first century presidents communicate with the people and defend their use of force and executive power in comparison to the lack of communication in the same way with previous presidents. It used to be that the majority of the president's rhetoric was directed towards Congress. They also preferred written communication over oral addresses. Tulis (1987, 5-6) states, “Prior to this century, presidents preferred written communications between the branches of government to oral addresses to ‘the people.’ The relatively few popular speeches that were made differed in character from today’s addresses.
The notion of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s war-mongering attitude operating as the powder-keg for the outbreak of war is very popular among historians. Kaiser Wilhelm II’s actions had either made the situation in Europe more complex or it played a direct role in eroding political stability (Waugh, 2001). He was driven by the motive to secure Germany’s place ‘in the sun’ (Chinn, 2014). This desire had urged the newly crowned Kaiser to adopt a more aggressive foreign policy, known as ‘Weltpolitik’, as well as encouraging him to /dismiss Germany’s guardian of peace, Chancellor Bismarck (Chinn, 2014). These moves paved the way for Kaiser Wilhelm II to challenge and rile his French and British foes.
Jewish people were excluded from public life on September 15th, 1935 when the Nuremberg Laws were issued. These laws also stripped German Jews of their citizenship and their right to marry Germans. When the Nuremberg Laws were established, the Jewish population began the process of losing their identity and eventually themselves. As soon as Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, the human race would be forever scarred. Although it is estimated the number of people killed in the Holocaust was around 11 million, there is a high chance of the death toll being much higher.
The government went from being involved in almost nothing to being involved with many economic and social issues. I learned just how influential each president was as well as how that has affected American society today. Nowadays we have higher expectations for the government because during the progressive era the government started to become more involved in the lives of American citizens in order to protect and help them. Because of this, now we know that our working rights will be protected, unlike those before the progressive
With Hitler, the depression, and the failure of the German government, the Nazi party was able to obtain control and convince all of Germany to hate the Jews. The Nazi Party didn 't have success in the mid 1920s but after the Wall Street crash and the depression more Germans listened to them and they began to grow (McGill). In 1930 there were 6 million Germans who were unemployed and the Social Democratic government couldn 't pay unemployment benefits, so people started to focus on the Nazis (Christie). The economy was obliterated and Germans didn 't have confidence in their government. They began to listen to Nazi propaganda (Christie).
