Just as Nazi Germany blamed the Jews, handicapped, gays, and other minorities for the tragedies that the country were trying so desperately to overcome; the Oceania government used whichever society, Eastasia or Eurasia, they felt like. Constantly switching between the two and feeding Oceanias inhabitants lies about the others. Once this “groupthink” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) is widely tolerated something “can go from being wrong or weird to acceptable and normal very quickly” (Psychological Aspects Behind the Causes of the Holocaust) . There is a domino effect and people begin to fall in line so to speak. It is easier to agree with what seems to be the majority than it is to disagree.
The weaknesses faced by the Weimar Republic was known which also enabled Hitler to exploit the weaknesses of the left and the moderates. Appearing to be the strong leader and withholding the communication skills needed to lead a country, he was able to gain the votes he needed (Orlow 'Modern Germany ' p.185). There were violent strikes in the streets, back and forth fighting, rioting. People were killed and the people of Germany, who feared Communism and despise chaos, sided with the “volkishe” parties, who promised to establish law and order. The people of Germany thought rather than having thousands die it would be better to have law and order and break a few heads than to live with that chaos.
The Nazis blamed the Jews for many of the problems going on in Germany at the time and portrayed anti-semitic beliefs. They portrayed those beliefs with propaganda with the Reich Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda which was established by Hitler as soon as he came into power and anointed Joseph Goebbels to be the head of it. After anti-semitism successfully divided the jews from the non-jews in Germany, a genocide of jews started and made the Jews suffer. The Jewish Holocaust was started by Adolf Hitler who used anti-semitism and propaganda to start a genocide of Jews. We must remember the Jewish Holocaust so we can be able to prevent future genocides that may happen.
Those people the Germans felt represented both a genetic and a financial burden on German society and the state as well. Anti-Semitism was the hatred of Jews. This was act was mostly portrayed by the Nazis as they ordered anti-Jewish boycotts, staged book burnings, and enacted anti-Jewish legislation. in 1935, the Nuremberg Laws defined the Jews by race and seperated people of "Aryans" and
He did this by building thousands of concentration camps and sending millions of people there. For him, Jews were the primary enemy of the Nazis and their lives was worthless. The “Aryan race” was threatened by the others. Hitler believed that having a small territory would suppress the birth rate of the Germans as well. In order for them to be the best, they conquered other countries and expanded their territory.
Another key point to make is that Adolf Hitler enacted several laws to enforce Jewish discrimination and injustice. There were two laws that had the most influence and effect and they are The Reich Citizenship Law and the Law for the Protection of German Blood and Honor. Engel adds on with a description of the two laws and what they promote: “Both laws limited the rights of Jewish people and sought to keep Jews separate from other residents of Germany”(Nuremberg Laws). This quote summarizes the two main laws that Adolf Hitler enacted and how they affected Jewish culture. The main purpose of the The Reich Citizenship Law was to state that only people of German or related blood could be German citizens.
The question in mind is; what was the effect of this forceful and aggressive regime set upon music? The large scale destruction and oppression of art has in some sense allowed for artistic creation to blossom. Pieces such as Messaien’s Quartet for the End of Time and Strauss’ Metamorphosen were created and inspired by great tragedy and frustration caused by Hitler’s Third Reich. In spite of this there is no denying the fact that many artists were silenced during this period, a numerous amount were killed along with the other 11 million victims during the Holocaust. Others despondently lived in fear, intimidated into not disobeying strict regimes.
During World War 2, the most evident traits of totalitarianism were the Nazi’s military terror that led to the Warsaw ghetto, Hitler’s persecution of the Jews that resulted in death camps like Auschwitz, and Stalin’s control of individuals that caused famine across millions. Hitler and the Nazis used military terror in World War 2 to force Jews into the Warsaw Ghetto, which resulted in starvation and death. Military terror was a tactic used by rulers to gain obedience through violence. Many times leaders have a special police force to protect the government's interests and scare the people into abiding by their rules. In Germany, Hitler used military terror to enforce his leadership with the help from the Nazi party.
This is to tell how Adolf Hitler changed Germany, Jewish people, And how people look at Germans and Swastikas. Adolf Hitler was Austrian born in April 20, 1889. Hitler also wanted to rule the world under his and only his command. Adolf also changed Germany by Killing and going against jews. Hitler also changed the jewish religion by killing jews and making them look bad and also causing them to switch religions by causing fear into them.
They were also taught to love Hitler which is now seen as a form of indoctrination because you are teaching kids that not liking Hitler is a crime. All textbooks were rewritten to the Nazi Version where children were mostly taught about how and why the aryan race was superior and why the other races were inferior. In Hitler youth children were trained for war and had stage wars which developed aggression to help Germany fight war. The Hitler Youth camps were essentially a camp where they would train the youth how to fight
