When Germany then invaded Poland. A group of countries called all the clans united to defeat Germany and its friends, who were their enemy. Germany joined Italy,Japan and Russia ( but Russia changed sides part-way through the war, they betrayed Germany). In the most cases it is accepted that the main cause of World War 2 was Germany’s political, social and economic instability. 2.
The Holocaust....even the name brings darkness to everyone. This event not only changed history but society as well. Though the event happened in Europe, the pain, message, and tragedy was known to the entire world. Before the Holocaust, and during the phase where the Nazism party got introduced, the Jews living in Germany and the other never thought that their country would ever discriminate them and kick them out. Some still continued living in Germany, as they thought the Nazism idea would extinquish soon.
This is shown through the attacks made by Japan to gain power, the attack caused America to get involved in the war and America could have avoided these attacks. Japan had many different motives for attacking Pearl Harbor. The main one being that America was getting in the way of Japan gaining
Adolf Hitler preached his beliefs that Germans were the superior race and that all other races were inferior to Germans. This caused the attack on anyone except Germans themselves. Germany had begun war with the world due to their feeling of superiority. This caused the change for the world in a sense. In a sense, it destroyed society.
Adolf Hitler, “implemented these laws to ostracize, discriminate and expel Jews from German society” (3) Diverse culture was rejected. Physically, the people of Germany, mostly jews, were affected because of Hitler trying to make the population one master race. He believed aryans were this “master race” as he believed the grew to have good health strength and overall, good characteristics unlike Jews
Background Adolf Hitler’s deep hatred of the Jews and communism, and his desire to unite the German people and showcase the superiority of the Aryan race drove him to subjugate most of Europe in order to gain “Lebensraum” or living space for the German, cleanse mankind of inferior species, and attain his vision of a Thousand Year Reich. His grand plan of conquering the whole of Europe was initially to focus German expansion in the western part before dealing with the Soviets in the east. Hence, as a matter of convenience, Germany initiated a Nonaggression Pact with Russia in 1939 to keep the Soviets in check while their military efforts are still focused in Western Europe (History in an Hour, n.d.). Following the Soviet occupation of the Baltic
There are a lot of reasons that caused Germany to lose the war. The first one was Hitler deciding to declare a war on the USA, on December 11, 1941 Germany declared war on the U.S, and this was 4 days after December 7, 1949 when the empire of Japan launched an attack on Pearl Harbor. The other reason was the Germans had the right technology but they used it incorrectly, the Germans were very advanced military technology with superior tanks and jet airplanes. However the quest for heavier tanks instead of focusing on the mass production of one tank left them with an array of tanks requiring lots of different things. Also they relied on forced labor so the quality control was a big
Seeds of Hatred Bloomed “In my will it will one day be written that nothing is to be engraved on my tombstone but ‘Adolf Hitler.’ I shall create my own title for myself in my name itself”-Adolf Hitler. Hitler’s actions during World War II fulfilled his words. His name brings memories of totalitarian dictatorship, cruel torture, and mass murder of millions of innocent people, Germans and Jews alike. Hitler’s hatred and beliefs of racial superiority brainwashed an entire nation, resulting in a war with a history written in the blood of helpless victims. What could have twisted Hitler’s mind into the psychotic, murderous maniac that he became?
It could be said that every European country involved was partially to blame. Each country, at the turn of the twentieth century, built up their militaries and raced with each other for colonial power. Each country made poltical and military alliances with others and were expected to uphold those promises when war began. Many countries went to war to achieve something for themselves. While Germany and Austria-Hungary are easily blamed for the war because of their pro-war ideals and actions, no country in Europe can escape the blame for a war that lasted much longer than a couple weeks and caused the loss of so much
In defying the compromise of the Great War nearly twenty-two years prior, Germany remilitarized their country in order to expand their borders, creating political conflict. The Berlin Games caused conflict between countries and races as Hitler defied the compromise of the Treaty of Versailles and started World War Two all under the face of a peaceful, hospitable Germany. The Berlin Olympics were full of controversy and conflict, but before the world could band together it was first threatened to never affiliate in the first place. The Games were awarded to Berlin after the war and before Hitler came to power (Smith). The Olympics were the biggest gift that the Fuhrer received when he started his dictatorship and twisted laws to strike at the Jews.
