After 1928, Hindenburg (German president at the time) hired “progressively right wing chancellors.” These people helped the Nazis’ rise to power (Christie). Hitler 's rise to power showed how much people will support someone if that person promises them something materialistic; Hitler promised them a sophisticated economy and government and they went along with him and
He promised to bring order amid chaos; a feeling of unity to all and the chance to belong. He would make Germany strong again; end payment of war reparations to the Allies; tear up the treaty of Versailles; stamp out corruption; keep down Marxism, and deal harshly with the Jews.” Furthermore, To sum it all down Germany was in deep trouble, they were the pinnacle of the depression. So then one man decided to change it all. Adolf Hitler was basically to Germany’s eyes inspiring He had the voice of MLK and with that, he convinced Germany THat he will free them from the depression.
Germany had little flexibility with its’ army, both in size and actions, due to the restrictions, which caused Germany to begrudge the surrounding countries. The Nazi regime took advantage of what the Germans didn’t like about the Treaty of Versailles, by breaking some aspects of it, in order to gain support and increase their numbers so they could go to war. There are many reasons why the Treaty of Versailles caused World War Two, but there still might have been other causes; just like how Germany was blamed for World War One, it is unfair to put all the blame of the treaty without acknowledging other possible
While Hitler had charisma, Churchill did not. According to Andrew Robert the truth is that Hitler exerted far more power over people’s imaginations and psyches than ever Churchill did. Hitler made use of two most powerful human emotions envy and resentment. After Germany lost the First World War and the ill treatment in the subsequent Versailles peace treaty, it was a downhill task to induce self-pity in the German people.
In the end result of World War 1, Germans attempted to comprehend their nations questionable future. As citizens faced poor economic conditions, soaring joblessness, and political instability. The humiliation of Germany’s defeat and the peace settlement that followed in 1919 would play an important role in the rise of Nazism. As Adolf Hitler being one of them they used many strategies and methods in his rise to power, which includes the brainwashing of children to ensure Germany’s future rise. Hitler manipulated German children into thinking he was the supreme leader to ensure the rise of Germany.
If a nation does not fight for a side in a war and stays neutral then it is not smart to stand there and provoke them, especially if the nation is one of the superpowers of the world. Germany pushed America to step into World War 1 because they made bad decisions on other nations that also took a toll on America. Germany antagonized president Woodrow Wilson 's neutrality in WW1 by destroying ships such as the Lusitania and going back on promises that they made. But the Germans were not the only ones to drag America into this war. America felt that trades between them and allied nations were being taken advantage of, and they felt that they just needed to end the war.
While he dictated, the culture of Germany was changed. Hitler wanted to make the population all think and be one certain way. To make this happen he made, “ Musical performances, movies, and other cultural public activities...all meant to make German’s brains exactly like the Nazi, eliminating any other thought of anti-government”(1). By controlling what people watched and read, Hitler brainwashed Germans to think positively of him and the Nazi’s. The population was not able to freely read or watch any sort of literature or other arts.
The judges were chaired by Georg Neithardt, who had been a judge of Hitler at another incident before. Except for Neithardt, who tended to be lenient towards right-wing defendants who claimed to have acted out of sincere, patriotic reasons, the judges were pro-Nazi. At the trial, Hitler got a chance to broadcast his views, as every word he spoke was being published. He claimed to have acted out of selfless devotion and for the good of the people and took all responsibility for the coup. Explaining his reasons, he declared that the government was treacherous for signing the Treaty of Versailles, which many Germans agreed on, and explained that the clear communist threat in Germany had to be eliminated.
In his Proclamation to the German Nation, Adolf Hitler creates a connection with his audience by using carefully chosen words and solely plural pronouns. In the beginning of his speech, Hitler quickly names a scapegoat. He targets the audience’s fear and declares, “[Communism] seeks to poison and disrupt in order to hurl us into an epoch of chaos… This negative, destroying spirit spared nothing of all that is highest and most valuable” (Hitler 1). By using words such as ‘poison’, ‘disrupt’, ‘hurl’ and ‘chaos’, Hitler is deliberately trying to frighten the audience. His choice of words here form a link to the audience through cultivating a united fear toward the Communists.
Despite his mission, Hitler was influenced by the party, and became close with Dietrich Eckart, who was a founder of the party. And with the weak economic state of the country at the time Hitler was able to rise. Hitler was able to attain this political power, by using his strengths. One of his strengths was his speaking ability.
Hitler feared the deterioration of his popularity by making un-popular decisions”, this led to him allowing other “high-ranking officials” would often influence political
The first way in which Hitler appealed to the Germans can be attributed to nationalism. Nationalism, excessive pride in one 's country, caused Hitler and the Nazi Party to seem attractive because it was almost second nature. Germans ' hearts burst with pride and "supreme love of their fatherland..." (doc 2). The people of Germany loved their country, and therefore, loved their leader. They were willing to drop everything and fight for Germany if their leader ordered them to.
Germany was relatively small in comparison to the other European countries, yet they managed to over a large portion of the continent. Hitler was an excellent speaker and used manipulation as a strategy when he would speak in front of the German people, he used his passion and words to control the citizens of Germany and worked them like his puppet. Hitler himself acknowledged his manipulation as he stated “I use emotion for the many and reserve reason for the few” he himself knew his raw emotion could control the masses to help him make Germany 's military motivated and powerful. Hitler was able to instill hate into the German people with his emotions and that hatred made Germany a stronger country. Also, another reason why Germany was so strong was because of their military advancements and Hitler made sure Germany was extremely well equipped with tanks and aircrafts that their assaults were very effective and Hitler himself knew this “Strength lies not in defence but in attack.”
Imagine living in Nazi Germany, let’s say you’re ten years old. Fear is consuming your body as you try to hide from the soldiers breaking down your door. Before you know it, you’re on a train without a clue as to where your friends and family might be. This was what it was like for everyone, not just the kids, but parents, grandparents, etc. The only question we can really ask is: How did we let this happen?
Summary HSB 4U Mitchell Alcock, Lucas Ojero, Olivia Johnstone Global Inequalities The Holocaust: Facts: The Holocaust began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler came to power in Germany. It ended in 1945 when the Nazi’s were defeated by the Allied powers. “Holocaust,” originally from the Greek word “holokauston” which means “sacrifice by fire,” refers to the Nazi’s persecution and planned slaughter of the Jewish people.
