First and foremost, the documentary tries to affect people's thinking into believing that Hitler and the Nazi Party were perfect for Germany. Riefenstahl does that by showing briefly various speeches given by the party and Hitler. The choice of words used by Hitler and other members of the party makes it easier for manipulating people into believing that they are the best and right choice for Germany. They knew exactly what the people wanted to hear and that is even after the great loss we are stronger and are willing to advance. After a rough time, people want to know they are safe.
Propaganda in techniques terms is the use of information especially of bias or misleading for a long-term political and social interest, mainly utilized by government and mostly used to win a war. The German Nazi rise to power in the 1930s and its usage of propaganda helped them get there, but more importantly, it helped to stay in power by persuading the people of Germany of their interest. Even Hitler in his book “Mein Kampf” stated that propaganda conveyed a message to the bulk of the German people, not to
In the previous quote, Katherine Anne Porter speaks about how it troubles her that slimy politicians violate the public. Porter makes a logical statement when it comes to untrustworthy politicians, for instance, “Our duty, Dr. Ross, is to circumvent them [politicians]. To see through them and stop them in their tracks in time and not to be hoodwinked or terrorized by them, not to rationalize and excuse that weakness in us which leads us to criminal collusion with them for the sake of our jobs or the hope of being left in peace,” (Porter 550). Avoiding and combating these kind of politicians appeals to the audience’s logic because it is the best solution to the
Most importantly, it severed as an opportunity to the Nazis. Not long after the assassination, a chain reaction of events soon followed. Ernst vom Rath assassination may have led to the outbreak of violence, but the true cause of the Kristallnacht was the influence of Joseph Goebbels’ propaganda campaign. To begin with, the Kristallnacht may have appeared to be spontaneous from the public eye, but it was actually deliberately planned. For instance, it was noted that the “German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and other Nazis carefully organized the pogroms.”1 To describe the Kristallnacht as just an act of revenge would completely undermine its true importance.
Mr. Reigner told Elting “that he had just received a report from a German businessman of considerable prominence, who is said to have excellent political and military connections in Germany”. This report was about a plan in the headquarters of Hitler to kill of any and all Jews in any German controlled areas after a concentration of them in the east has taken place. This information was assumed to cause the U.S. Secretary of State to take action, especially al of the injustice towards the Jews before this, such as: The
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 Dan van der Vat 's novel, The Good Nazi, the author displays Albert Speer 's human element with an inspective tone. The tone helps to display Albert Speer’s feelings towards the party all throughout the biography. Later after the war, Speer stated, “He had accepted Hitler’s commands and must share the responsibility for their consequences” (304). Here Speer wants to show that although he was only following orders, he shows remorse and deserves punishment. The tone helps to make him seem remorseful and accepting of a punishment.
This is done in order to create a dark and malevolent tone to associate with the Puritan Religion. This is first scene in Hawthorne’s introductory to the novel, when he describes of his ancestors as having, “ the Puritanic traits, both good and evil” (15). Here, Hawthorne introduces a negative connotation with the Puritan Religion by associating the word, “evil”, with the beliefs of Puritan Culture. From here on out, the audience views the Puritans as the antagonist of a peaceful society. Hawthorne then follows his beliefs expressed in his introduction when he displays how members of the Puritan Society treat Hester for going against the beliefs of their conservative views.
Propaganda is publication of information designed to control and convinces people to think and act in a certain way and maximize regimes like Nazi Regime. According to Adolf Hitler, “Propaganda is trying to impose a doctrine on the whole people. Propaganda works on the public position and proceeds from the idea of making the audience poised to accept this idea.” During the rise of Nazism in Germany in the thirties of the last century period, it was not anti-Semitism something new or unknown. Jews have suffered at the time from a long history of prejudice and persecution. And associated equipment Semitism manifested itself in a comprehensive national policy known as the Final Solution, and this is what did not get seen before, which sought to eliminate Jews from the face of the earth.
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.
