The National Holocaust Memorial Museum Washington, D.C., or District of Columbia, is located between Virginia and Maryland on the north bank of the Potomac River. It’s the home of the three branches of government as well with the White House, Supreme Court, and the Capital Building. For the layout of Washington D.C., George Washington himself made the city in a diamond shape. The city spans 68 square miles with a population of 601,723 (History.com). It also has many memorials that today we still visit.
Hitler and the Nazis were the evilest people in history. They hated the Jews and communists, so they would kill everyone one of them they could find. The Nationalist Socialist Workers Party stands for N.A.Z.I. in German, but in English it stands for N.W.S.P. Hitler saw an opportunity to be in control of the Nazis. Hitler joined the Nazis and rose in power until he was in complete power.
Since he was able to create his own laws, he decided to create laws that gave Jews few rights, and, with the help of a man named Adolf Eichmann, eventually leading them to be placed in camps called concentration camps. The Holocaust went on for a long time before anyone found out what had been going on causing the effects to be tremendous. Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor of Germany on January 30th, 1933. He created a party called the Nazi party and they later started World War II. Shortly thereafter, he passed the Enabling Act, allowing him to create his own laws.
The Wall Street Crash was probably one of the biggest stock market crash of America. The crash caused the Great Depression as well and it affected all the Western industrialized countries. The Wall Street Crash did not end in America until the end of 1941. A lot of people lost their jobs, more than 13 million people, after when all the banks crashed. The Wall Street Crash had an overwhelming impact on the American economy because America gave enormous loans to the Weimar Republic in 1924 and also in 1929.
Germany has made major economic advancement in their recovery efforts since World War II. With the surrender of the Nazis, allied forces occupied Germany, from 1945-1949, maintaining all policies that were emplaced by the Nazi Party, which resulted in an economic disaster. “There were price controls, rent controls, wage controls, and extensive general regulation of the economy. The net result was an economic disaster and the creation of near-famine conditions.” (Watkins) Even after the allied forces released its grasp and allowed Germany to retract the controls it caused major inflation previously suppressed by the controls.
Hitler had hoped that the “putsch,” or coup d’etat, would spark a larger revolution against the national government. In the aftermath of the Beer Hall Putsch, Hitler was convicted of treason and sentenced to five years in prison, but spent less than a year behind bars (during which time he dictated the first volume of “Mein Kampf,” or “My Struggle,” his political autobiography). The publicity surrounding the Beer Hall Putsch and Hitler’s subsequent trial turned him into a national figure. After his release from prison, he set about rebuilding the Nazi Party and attempting to gain power through the election
Adolf Hitler rose to power by taking advantage of the World Wars, and the Great Depression. On Tuesday, October 29, 1929, the stock market crashed. The Germans were in a war debt of $33,000,000,000. It says in the article The Aftermath of WW1 Leading to the Great Depression, that they printed an abundance of money, but this led to severe inflation. According to the text of the article, The Rise of Adolf Hitler, “German workers were laid off.
After Germany’s abysmal defeat in World War I, Adolf Hitler because a more recognized name. Prior to his fame and power, he joined an extremist party called the National Socialist Workers’ Party. “Hitler soon revealed an exceptional gift for oratory and an astonishing ability to dominate his fellow party members by sheer force of personality” (pg. 35). He filled the minds of his followers with nationalist ideas saying that Germans were better and smarter than anyone else in the world and he picked out groups like the Jews who he deemed inferior. The last and perhaps most radical of his ideas was that the only way Germany could survive as a great power was if the world was rid of such inferiority.
With the dissolution of the German Monarchy came the need for a new type of government. This led to the establishment of the Weimar Republic, and those who had helped to put this government into power rebelled with no success. Germany was suffering from debt after World War I, and the people no longer knew if they could give their support to the Weimar Republic. With the country experiencing intense inflation the German currency basically collapsed along with the republic. This led to the rise of a new age of absolute monarchy, although it was not called that.
The Wall Street Clash in October 1929 was the beginning of a great depression but for the Nazis it was the biggest gift they could have ever received. Germany had been hit badly by this because they had to pay back the entire loan they had acquired from the USA as part of the Dawes Plan. In Germany, the depression affected different people in different ways. It was as if Germany had lost another World War. Unemployment had risen massively in Germany and even the businessmen, who always kept themselves well-protected, felt the impacts of the Great Depression.
Together, with a total amount of 3,000 people, rushed into a public meeting and Hitler announced that there is a beginning to a new government. Shortly after this occurred, Hitler was arrested and put away for three years. During this time, he wrote a novel called Mein Kampf(My Struggle) which outlined his
Germany after World War 1 would never be the same. Germany lost World War and resulted in their country beginning to fall apart mostly impacting the economy. Germany was angry and embarrassed having lost the war but what impacted them the most was the terms of the Treaty of Versailles that destroyed Germany’s economy. The Treaty of Versailles imposed reparations from the war leaving Germany with huge debts. “The situation was made worse by economic problems created by crippling war debts,the burden of having to pay reparations, and high unemployment.”
Hitler created the Law of the Protection of the People and State, which banned communists and socialists from the elections. What this meant was that there were less voters for the other parties and more for the National Socialist German Workers ' Party. Later on, he banned all political parties except the National Socialists. In the end, separate state parliaments still existed, but had no power; most were removed from their jobs. By doing this, Hitler made sure he was the most powerful and latter on, only political leader.
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
As the Nazis came to power in the late 1930’s, Hitler wanted to engage all of the generations, as well as future generations, in his plan to create a racially pure and dominant society. Hitler’s goal not only applied to Central Europe but also to the domination of the entire world. One of the first groups to form, the Hitler Youth, came to light in 1922. Later sub groups formed and from 1933-1945 those were the leading organizations to shape the youth of Germany into Hitler’s molds of “perfect” Aryan children. As the Nazi Party gained strength and power, Hitler garnered his support in the youth by creating outside-school youth groups and later requiring the participation in youth organizations, in an effort to recruit more followers to ultimately
