portrays him with a young girl shaking her hand lovingly, below was the text ‘a man of peace and not a war monger as the world propaganda has depicted and slandered him’. The pamphlet declared Hitler a people’s man and that everybody loved him. Churchill according to Nazi propaganda was frivolous and stupid who enjoyed war and thus instigated it. The Nazis had paraphernalia like theatrical effects like martial music, seas of flags, massed ranks of storm troopers, and especially dramatic lighting sometimes using military searchlights, sometimes hand held flaming torches at meetings and rallies to increase the audience’s receptiveness. The comparison to Hitler could not be starker.
All great speeches have a purpose, either to rally the population, promote some idea or to encourage others. Winston Churchill’s Speech entitled “Their Finest Hour” has gone down in history as one of the greatest and most powerful speech of the Second World War. It was given in response to the fall of the France in the war, and helped establish the tone for the people of the United Kingdom, that despite the great loss, they still had hope to overcome the enemy forces. Churchill’s speech inspired patriotism, determination and hope. This speech was directed at all the people in the United Kingdom, to unite and to promise a better hope, despite of Hitler’s attempts at world domination and the victory of the Nazis in almost every battle in Europe.
Hitler himself discusses his motives behind broadcasting Nazi ideals; "Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. (...) All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed. (...) The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to their feelings, in finding the appropriate psychological form that will arrest the attention and appeal to the hearts of the national masses. The broad masses of the people are not made up of diplomats or professors of public jurisprudence nor simply of persons who are able to form reasoned judgment in given cases, but a vacillating crowd of human children who are constantly wavering between one idea and another. (...) The great majority of a nation is so feminine in its character and outlook that its thought and conduct are ruled by sentiment rather than by sober reasoning.
Hitler 's impact of society and the world is known by nearly everybody in the world. Hitler 's impact of German society is also very massive. In the quote “If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed” It shows how the discrimination of minorities due to them being inferior is a false premise. Yet, this power generated from it can be redirected to accomplish other things. This discrimination was used to drive Naz society.
When Hitler became the Fuhrer of Germany, Germans became more comfortable with how the future of their country would turn out. Hitler had created many policies when he first became Fuhrer. What this did for the Germans is create a safer presence in Germany and built up the confidence of them. One example of this is when Hitler rejected the Treaty of Versailles. The people finally felt free from power of France and instantly loved Hitler for this action.
The significance that the Treaty of Versailles had on Germany was that, first off, Germany was blamed for starting the war by the other countries involved in World War I. France, Russia, and Italy all agreed that Germany was to blame for starting the war. Therefore, they made Germany pay reparations. These reparations affected Germany greatly. Not only did the Treaty of Versailles blame Germany for starting the war, but the Treaty of Versailles also led to a great depression and to the rise of Adolf Hitler. The Treaty of Versailles had a huge effect on Germany.
After World War II, the fear of autocratic governments and communism spread, especially within the United States. The idea of having a restrictive leader produced fear amongst citizens, creating a sense of distrust towards neighbors or officials that might support such a faction; this anti-communism movement was known as the Red Scare. Spearheaded by Senator Joseph McCarthy, the domestic war-on-communism reached an extreme, one that took away the freedoms of this nation’s people. Americans sacrificed civil liberties and privacy in an effort to deter the totalitarian wave from taking root in their country. During the 1950s, America was on edge, as Russia’s dictator Stalin bolstered the kind of government that went against what World War II was fought for.
Most of the population disagreed with both of the policies, however, the benefits and the positive effects outweighed for many. War Communism had a significant impact on the peasantry and the proletariat, it was extremely unpopular and not successful enough to continue. It has been suggested that War Communism was an attempt by the Bolsheviks to go straight to socialism, it is more likely that it was a reaction to wartime conditions, justified by ideological position. The effect of War Communism on the proletariat was immense, Lenin nationalised businesses to place the economy on a war footing. All industries came under direct control of the state, managers were forced to stay in their positions and private trades were banned.
Two years does not seem like much time for something to happen in government, but Hitler and his Nazi party were able to establish a dictatorship in under this amount of time. Hitler used many smart and convincing strategies to gain his power. Hitler 's propaganda was like a virus that tainted the German people 's mind, and the population was amaurotic to what Hitler 's and the Nazis where actually doing. They wereThe Nazis’ rise to power enabled Hitler to establish a dictatorship by eliminating adversaries and using careful propaganda to influence the German people, convincing them that the Nazis and Hitler should control not only the nation, but the entire world. After fighting for Germany in WWI, Hitler used powerful speeches
However, the Holocaust was the first genocide that had a global response prior to the formation of the UN. The Nazis justified their actions because they truly believed their actions were correct, an ideological statement that can be compared to the ones made by the Bolsheviks (Black). Despite not having a global group of united countries, the response to the Holocaust was incredibly strong and powerful, which led to the quick disposal of the Third Reich. The UN needs to analyze the global response to the Jewish genocide, as it truly was the best reaction to ethnic cleansing. Anti-Semitic propaganda was used in order to persuade the German population into believing the Nazi ideology, a practice that can be seen today during the Syrian genocide by both sides (Black).
World War I ended in 1918 with the victorious Allied powers, and the peace-promising Treaty of Versailles. However, this treaty 's peace did not last long as its unrealistic demands caused strong resentment within the Central powers against the Allied powers. Territorial losses, reparation payments, and inflation all left Europe in economic ruins. The damage and destruction that resulted from World War I paved a clear path that allowed for World War II to occur. It began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler gained power and, with the help of the Nazi Party, turned Germany in a totalitarian dictatorship.
Hitler and Eisenhower also both used logos. They gave logical reasons to support why they sent out their command. Hitler supported his order for confiscating Jewish art, with the claim that the art was interfering with his “Weltanschauung”. Likewise, Eisenhower supported his order for salvaging art with the claim that art and culture help a civilization flourish. This use of logos shows that both authors believed and wanted others to believe that their command was moral and a
