Hitler was a demagogue that obtained power over the German people by promising them to create a future powerful Germany comprised of a perfect Aryan race and a unified people. To do this, Hitler had to put carry out the Final Solution, save the Germans from their dreadful economy of unemployment, and free them of the conditions of the Treaty of Versailles. In document six, we see that during the 1920’s in Germany, there was a great economic failure which mainly affected the middle class. Throughout this economic recession, “savings of a lifetime and small fortunes melted into a few [pennies].” People even sold valuable possessions in order to obtain some food. Therefore, Hitler rose to power and was supported by most of the middle class because through his promises to fix the dreadful economy at the time and create a new, powerful Germany, he was found
Many Americans grew to hate immigrants because of the Red Scare. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director J. Edgar Hoover had a major part in seeking out communist activities. For example here is some evidence of their work, “The information obtained by the FBI proved essential in high-profile legal cases, including the 1949 conviction of 12 prominent leaders of the American Communist Party on charges that they had advocated the overthrow of the government” (www.history.com). Countless Americans felt the pressure of communism on a personal level. Thousands of so-called
They held the highest population in all and every camp. In retaliation to Jews for killing a German policeman in self defense on July 31, 1940 the nazis carried out a public mass execution(“Holocaust”). This day was later named “Bloody Wednesday”.They were tortured by anxiety, were insecure of the present, torn between hope and despair, and felt helpless. There were many people who were persecuted during the Holocaust that weren’t Jewish: spouses of Jews, Roma Gypsies, resisters, priests and pastor, Jehovah Witnesses, political enemies, homosexuals, the disabled, and African-German descent. Spouses of Jews had to choose between getting a divorce or being sent to concentration camps along with their Jewish Spouse.
It is a law of nature that those in power who fear or detest others will seek to have those ‘others’ silenced. The justification for these deplorable acts is that these attacks are for the betterment of the masses. Sacrifices are suggested only by those who seek to profit, unless it is their own life. In all examples of mass hysteria, superstition leads to prejudice. In Nazi Germany, the idea that Jews were responsible for the horrible reparations after the Great War was common.
Now there were some Germans who opposed to the Holocaust, that were afraid to speak out because Hitler was so powerful at the time. Afraid of what might happen to them and their families if they did. On the other hand it was over 10,000 Germans involved in orchestrating the massive genocide against the Jews, which was a very large amount. Hitler used very untrue things about the Jews to get people to agree and follow along. Most of the things Hitler accused the Jews of were very false.
adolf hitler would stop at nothing to kill everybody that did not agree with his ways and kill all the people that he thought that were hurting germany “From the first days of Hitler 's "Third Reich" political opponents such as von Schleicher and Gregor Strasser were murdered or incarcerated, and some Nazis, among them Ernst Roehm, were themselves purged. Jews, Socialists, Communists, and others were hounded, arrested, or assassinated. Government, law, and education became appendages of National Socialism. After Hindenburg 's death in 1934 the chancellorship and presidency were united in the person of the Führer. Heil Hitler!
Was hitler born an authoritarian or did his environment led him to such a desire power? “Life as Adolf Hitler” is regarding Menno Meyjes’ critically acclaimed film, Max, written by Zayda Ojeda. Ojeda’s thesis states that Hitler’s environment encouraged him to dictate Germany because Hitler was rejected, felt mistreated, and unnoticed. The main claim of Ojeda’s paper is that Hitler struggled with being mistreated by a fictional character in the film, named Max Rothman. Ojeda’s paper is very well written, although, there are still some parts of the paper that can be changed and reconstructed.
The theme of power is shown by trujillos controlling ways,how He kills all the people who oppose him, and how he spies on people's every move. Trujillo's controlling ways show the theme of power in many ways. One way would be the fact that he has the ability tell people what they are to do and what they are not to do. "Trujillo is the law," Papá whispered, as we all did nowadays when we pronounced the dreaded name. (2.6.54-55) in this quote we take a look to when minerva was invited to a party by trujillo.
Hitler was a fraud and acted as if he was the nicest man alive to gain the power he needed. Until such time as he showed his true colors and expressed what his true desires were. Would you rather lead people who respect your opinion or only do so because you seem nice? It’s nearly impossible to influence people into respecting your opinion, but as a leader you must show no weakness,
A great example of this would be Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin who were both political leaders of their countries, Germany and Russia and wanted greatness for their countries and arguably for themselves as well. Both countries did become recognisable super powers. However, it did not last long as the negative effects on the citizens within unfortunately outweighed the the shortlived greatness of both countries. These dictators had similar idealistics and the punishment was heavy for those who opposed their opinions or ideas, it sometimes ended in death or exilement to concentration camps. Each dictator had a strong belief that their vision for their country was the best one.
Corrupt aspects of Man’s nature are shown in William Shakespeare’s play Macbeth as well as through the ambition of Hitler and his desire to overthrow Germany and eliminate all Jews. This is shown by both Macbeth and Hitler’s murderous ambitious attitudes to do whatever it takes to become one of the most powerful people of their time. In the beginning of the play Macbeth was a reasonably good man and a great solider. Macbeth was even described as being brave, and a gentleman by King Duncan. ”Like valor’s minion carved out his passage, Till he faced the slave; Which ne 'er shook hands, nor bade farewell to him, Till he unseamed him from the nave to th ' chops,” (act1 scene2 19-20).
When considering the events leading up to the Holocaust, it is important to understand there were various factors as well as people who played influential parts. The Holocaust could not have been caused by the genocidal intentions of a singular man such as Adolf Hitler. Mimi-Cecilia Pascoe states, “Regardless of any proof of Hitler’s intentions, he was not alone in his discriminatory views. Early 20th century Europe was full of similarly minded Anti-Semites; thus, Hitler’s attitude alone is an insufficient explanation for genocide” (2013, p.42). Though Hitler was thought to be the “head” of the Nazis genocidal tirade, he looked upon his popularity with much disquietude.
As adolf Eichmann advanced throughout his Nazi career, he was promoted and his office was the headquarters for the “final solution.” Adolf Eichmann reported to Heinrich Himmler When 11 million Jews had been killed. This pleased him even though Reinhard Heydrich told Eichmann a “no gassing” policy. Eichmann ignored that and still continued to be the ruthless killer he was. When the war ended, Eichmann had to pay for his crimes, so he was going to be prosecuted in front of the Israeli
Hitler combined terror and propaganda, with his new policies to turn the unsuspecting Germany into a totalitarian state. Along with the Hitler youth to ensure that the next generation would be loyal to the NAZI ideology. In 1928 Hitler and the NAZI party got 2.6% of the votes (Pearson, 2013). Then in 1932 the NAZI party received 37.7% of the votes (Pearson, 2013). This was due to the NAZI campaign and propaganda.
The Holocaust Eleven million innocent people gone in the blink of an eye. The Holocaust was a toxic time period in which millions of Europeans lost their lives due to the belief that Anglo-Saxons were “racially superior”. This twelve yearlong misery began once a man named Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany. Jews were the main group targeted because they were believed to have caused all economic problems but, they were not the only ones. Homosexuals, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Romans, and people who were disabled were all some of the groups targeted during the Holocaust.
