Adolf Hitler is one of the most known names from our history. Hitler can very well be considered the epitome of all evil. One may agree with this theory, but was he born to be cruel and inconsiderate for no reason, to blame and take the life of hundreds if not thousands of innocent Jews? Now if one puts that in perspective, is he/she born evil or are you form to be cruel. Hitler was obviously not born evil, at one point it was a young man lost to find his path.
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
For a leader of a nation to want the best for their country is great, but to want the best for the world is exceptional. For example, in many of Churchill's speeches it was obvious he was thinking of the state of other countries. He, before the outbreak of World War Two, made his "Be Ye Men of Valor" speech to Britain as the Prime Minister, calling his country to act on the problem at hand. Churchill spoke, "Behind them, behind us, behind the Armies and Fleets of Britain and France, gather a group of shattered States and bludgeoned races: the Czechs, the Poles, the Norwegians, the Danes, the Dutch, the Belgians -- upon all of whom the long night of barbarism will descend, unbroken even by a star of hope, unless we conquer, as conquer we must, and conquer we shall". He truly believed that it was the duty of all countries to make the world a better place, to help other countries in need, even if it meant going to war with another country.
Weinberg does agree that Hitler would of course preferred to avoid a conflict with Western powers, but he realized that this was something he would inevitability have to face. Hitler’s Chief German biographer, Joachim Fest, argues that Hitler’s growing sense of mortality was what convinced him that it was time to increase aggression. Tooze that not much has changed regarding the positions on this topic since the 1980’s, but offers the probability of some alterations as a result of new archival evidence. This evidence, Tooze argues, forces historians to further explore Hitler’s war against the his Jewish enemies who he blamed for Germany’s economic crisis. He explains that Hitler viewed Germany's problem through the lens of his racial ideology and this made war inevitable for him.
Eugenics is the idea of improving the human species by limiting growth of the populations of people with traits that could be considered undesirable. In Germany during the rise of Nazi ideas these ideas were Rather popular. “The basic concept of eugenics—breeding for better humans—was part of the cultural assumptions of the day for many Germans, not just for those who were avowed Nazis” (Deaf People in Hitler 's Europe 206-207). The common way of eliminating these “undesirable” traits come by sterilizing the people who possessed them and not allowing them to pass the trait to the next generation. Later during the war the Nazis decided there could be a more efficient way to eliminate these traits and they decided to stop sterilizing and start
I believed in Hitler, don’t get me wrong. Germany prospered when he came into power, even the leaves on the trees were greener when he rose. But the more empowered he felt over ruling people the more hatred showed for specific people with racism against Jews, handicapped, homosexuals, or anyone else who did not fit into the class of German Aryans. He persuaded his people to try to expand Germany (Giblin 97). Adolf’s determination for Germany was endless.
The Treaty of Versailles left Germany in shambles, humiliated and broken, with an unstable economy. As a result, many Germans wanted revenge and held intense resentment towards the Allied Powers. Eventually, this plunged German into a state of desperation, where people were willing to follow anyone to lead them out of darkness. This led to the rise of Adolf Hitler, who was able to persuade Germans to free Germany from the “chains of Versailles”, where his many speeches mainly blamed the provisions of the treaty with responsibility of Germany’s many problems. Hitler’s mind-set and determination, along with the support of Germans, to make Germany into a stronger nation once again led to WWII and attempts to revoke the treaty.
But he still seem to clash heads with another key member of Nazi propaganda, Leni Riefenstahl, who Hitler valued very highly. Riefenstahl first film for the Nazis was titled Triumph of the Will, funded by the NSDAP and recorded the events of the 1934 Nuremberg Rallies. This film showed an abundance of German expressing themselves in such a way that seemed unnatural for the Nazi regime, but only served to emphasis the support for Hitler that was captured by Riefenstahl. Hitler is conveyed almost as a conqueror of this land, as he triumphantly trudges into his new Germany with his fellow
Adolf Hitler 's rise to power in Germany was one of the most extraordinary things that happened in that period of German history. People till this day are generally impressed on how he seized power. For example, using the German’s disfavor of the results of World War I. Blaming Germany 's problems on the Jews, which gave him the idea of making Jew’s lives miserable by constructing many concentration camps for Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, and disabled people, taking away their jobs and treating them like slaves. Lastly, his use of incredible speech skills caused the German people to believe in him and the use of propaganda. To begin with, Hitler was the son of an Austrian customs official.
An example of a false representation of the dictator is Stalin or Hitler. They both showed pride with posters, books, for the public to convince on how they were such good leaders but really they were not as they had killed millions, in The Holocaust or Stalin Purges. (OI) Trujillo was one of those guys, and he affected Alvarez mother as pulling her into this trap of mesmerising him as a hero.
