In fact, it only encouraged Germany to create further problems and eventually start World War II (WWII) - a battle that Britain had to fight in Europe and over her own skies as well. This pre-WWII British policy is often referred to as appeasement. Essentially, in the late 1930s, the British government rubber stamped several annexations and territorial conquests in central Europe by the German government under Adolf Hitler. There were two main motivating factors behind this policy: the idea that what Hitler was asking for was reasonable and the British government and society wanting terribly to avoid another war. The first of these policies stemmed from Hitler 's fascist regime 's stated goal of unifying all German speakers in central Europe under the German flag.
In the late 1920’s, the Nazi party had little success but in 1933, Hitler and the Nazis came to power. Hitler was the leader of a small right-wing party with very extremist ideas. Within a couple of years this party was in control of Germany. The factors that caused Hitler’s success for the rise of Nazism has been studied ever since. Hitler’s organisation skills and personal traits helped to bring the Naizs into power.
Chamberlain feared that this would lead to the outbreak of a Second World War and so he met Hitler on two different occasions to try and persuade him to rethink his plot. When Mussolini realised that war looked inevitable he proposed a four power conference which became known as the Munich
They needed a leader who paid attention to their views and opinions -somebody who could stop this calamity and change Germany into a powerful nation once again. In 1922, the dictator Adolf Hitler offered his right hand to Germany. His fight was a success as he achieved his to rise to power in 1933, becoming Chancellor of Germany. Undoubtedly, his progression to power
Paul Tillich, born in 1886 was born in Germany, and was rather conservative in politics, as indicated by his involvement in ‘Wingolf.’ However, in 1914 Tillich became a Chaplain in the German army for World War I, and his experiences on the frontlines shaped his views towards more socialist ideas, later putting him at odds with the Nazi party. By 1933, Tillich left Germany and joined the Union Theological Seminary in New York where he would go to publish The Courage to Be. The Courage to Be was written post World War II, after a devastating and pointless war rooted in vengeance for World War I and rampant nationalism. In wake of events such as the Holocaust, it could be argued that humanity is hopeless and meaningless. These events caused existential dread and the rise of existentialism.
But the Bolshevik Revolution itself took advantage of the right conditions in Russia, in order to insure success. This goes to show that rising to power, gaining full totalitarian power calls for the right conditions and according methods to be applied. When Hitler rose to power in Germany in 1933, it had been in preparation for 16 years, and had required a series of changes to be made within Germany. The years of crisis for the Weimar Republic as well as the crash of Wall Street in 1929, help explain the conditions that allowed Hitler to rise to power. The methods used include propaganda, promises, and scapegoating as well as the measures taken following the election in 1930.
Weimar Republic was the name given to democratic Germany that emerged after the First World War and lasted until Hitler’s appointment. However, from its birth in 1919 until the start of the economic depression in 1929, the Weimar Republic was to face many challenges.
As the Great Depression continued through the 1930s, Roosevelt's attentions were increasingly drawn toward Europe, where the aggression of Nazi Germany could no longer be ignored. Large-scale war had broken out with Adolf Hitler's 1939 invasion of Poland. In 1940 Roosevelt was reelected for a third term. Meanwhile, military preparations had already begun in the United States, and Roosevelt initiated the "Lend-Lease" Bill, which granted Great Britain much-needed munitions and supplies for the war with Germany. The Japanese
Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia were never ‘great states’, let alone ‘great powers.’ While such a situation was tenable during the reign of Weimar Germany, the remilitarization of Nazi Germany following the rise of Hitler shattered the stability of central Europe. Austria and the Sudetenland were annexed in 1938; the rump Czech state and Poland occupied in 1939, the latter sparking the Second World War. This power imbalance was reflected in sharply deteriorating relations between Germans and Slavs. In Hrabal’s novel I Served the King of England, an uptick in anti-German sentiment in Prague occurs in 1937-1938 (the date is unclear): the Sokol movement emerges, waiters at the Hotel Paris refuse to serve Germans, and Ditie is fired for his sympathy towards the German cause (Ditie, pg. 120-125).
The Nazi Party was a political party that came to power in 1933 and ended in 1945. Adolf Hitler was this political partys’ ruler who rose to power in 1933 by being elected Chancellor. Hitler had used his Nazi mindset to become a totalitarian ruler by making people his propaganda that society is corrupt and way past reform and that they needed him. Adolf Hitler was a totalitarian ruler who had a terrible belief that the Germans were a superior race above all, which is not at all true. Germans had allowed Hitlers’ party to be their government structure because Hitler had promised to solve their economic problems.
Europe was still very unstable because of the effects of World War I especially Germany. Their politics and economy were very unstable, so it was easy for a dictator to take the “throne”. Hitler and the Nazi party soonly took over. The Allied powers continually tried to get Hitler to stop expanding and conquering other lands. Hitler agreed, but continually disregarded them violating and denouncing the Treaty of Versailles, which ended World War I. Germany signed treaties with Japan and Italy to help them take over the world.
The “Big four” (Germany, Britain, France, and Italy) Met at Munich with Germany to work out an agreement so that those nations are not brought into the war. Instead of defending themselves and standing up to Germany and Italy, they used the strategy of Appeasement. Although this decision was made by Chamberlin to use appeasement (Document 5), Winston Churchill didn’t agree with Chamberlin. Winston believed *“that keeping peace depends on holding back the aggressor.” (Document 6) Following this quote Churchill gave a Parliamentary speech: *“[…] I asked that Britain, together with France and other powers guarantee the security of Czechoslovakia. […] In time Czechoslovakia will be swallowed by the Nazi regime […].” (Document 6) Winston knew that even if the nations tried to appease Hitler, The Nazi regime would still take control.
