How did the Great Depression aid Hitler to rise to power in Germany? Introduction My EPQ question is focused on how the Great Depression aided Hitler to become a powerful dictator within Germany; causing the Second World War. Although the Great Depression is a key factor, while researching, it has been suggested that there are other factors such as the “Treaty of Versailles”3, “propaganda”3, the fact that he was a “gifted speaker”3, “Reichstag building was set on fire”8, and the Munich Putsch leading to his “trial for treason”4. The Great Depression was a catastrophic event beginning in 1929; America, and its effects lasting long into the 1930’s, in countries all over the world. The “biggest stock market since records began”9, was caused
I will show evidence that the film uses techniques that are persuasive in getting the people to endorse and rally around the Nazi party in the 1930’s. Additionally, I will discuss and present evidence that Triumph of the Will lures and convinces the German people to put their trust in Hitler. Today we have the hindsight to understand the full impact of this documentary and that it did in fact persuade its
The swastika had no negative associations up until its inclusion in Hitler’s Anti-Semitic policies and ideals. Its true meaning had been completely warped and distorted by the end of World War II. In modern times, when one thinks of Nazism, they think of the swastika, which carries only negative connotations. Despite being something as simple as a symbol, the swastika has managed to become the face of World War II and The Nazi Party, it is universally recognised as a symbol of hate, elitism and oppression, albeit having very positive
A part of this section’s job was to train public speakers to cast the same amount of pride and charisma as Hitler himself to the German-ruled people. They also produced flyers and pamphlets that were given out. A major job that this branch of government held was the creation of national newspapers that omitted anything negative about Germany, and mixed gossip with politics. The first public oppression of the Jewish people from Hitler was at his infamous speech at Reichstag. His words were that he wished to “Once again be a prophet” and told the Germans that the Jews would be the downfall of humanity.
Hitler’s violent passion towards the executors of the assassination and the idea of revenge if very obvious in this speech. His passion towards his cause of leading Germany into being the dominant race in Europe is also very visible. Finally “Telos” is the purpose or conclusion of the speech, in this case it was to assure the Germans that he is alive and the plot failed. Thus we use these concepts to show how rhetoric functions, and how Adolf Hitler was eloquent from the rhetoric
The Nazi party saw this opportunity and met their community with an alternative, strong leadership. Hitler and the Nazi party used eloquent speeches that used the people’s fear and God given entitlement to persuade people that the Nazi way of life was the only way of life. The Nazi way of life encouraged strong German principles and blamed all their obstacles on the Jewish race. According to the Nazi party, it was the Jewish people who were impure and responsible for all the German people’s hardships.
How Important Was Hitler 's Contribution to the Nazis ' rise to Power by 1933? There are many factors between the dates, 1919-1933 that helped the Nazi party rise to power as well as the fact that Hitler was their leader. In my essay I am going to describe each factor and explain how it affected the Nazis rise to power. I am going to do this, to decide how important Hitler 's contribution was. My first thoughts before I have done any research, are what I think is the most important factor to the rise of Nazi power; this is in my opinion probably the Treaty Of Versailles.
Nowadays people ask themselves how it was possible for WW2 and the Holocaust to happen and why the Nazis and Hitler became so very powerful and successful. To answer that question one has to take a look at how they managed to seize power during the inter war years and the events that took place. In his propaganda speech in front of the Reichstag in April 1939 Hitler claimed having singlehandedly accomplished the rise of the Nazi party with the words: “I have accomplished all this, as one who 21 years ago was still an unknown worker and soldier of my people, by my own efforts…” (Ian Kershaw, The Führer Myth: How Hitler won over the German People). Since there were a lot of components which led to Hitler becoming Chancellor on January 30th 1933 and a lot of people who the Nazi party was dependent on, it seems quite
World War 2 was the biggest and bloodiest conflict of the entire world history. Many world powers such as the US and Great Britain were involved in this war, which indicates that this was an international war. After its end, defeated countries were blamed for its devastating consequences. One of them was blamed most in particular: Germany. In this essay, I will analyze to what extent was Germany responsible for the outbreak of World War 2.
In this source analysis, I will look into the speech given by German Social Democrat, Otto Wels on March 23, 1933. It should also be mentioned that Thomas Dunlap translated this speech into English, which will be the primary source for this essay. The speech given by Wells was in protest to Hitler’s Enabling act; a law that would help provide Hitler and his followers with a legal path towards a dictatorship. The vote for the enabling act and the speech given by Wells, were held in the Reichstag on the same day, but as history has shown, Hitler’s Nazi Party prevailed, and the democratic makeup of the Weimer Republic was washed away. The significance of this speech is quite prevalent today, in retrospect to the grisly past of the Third Reich,
