By rising to power, hitler knew exactly what he was doing. By being manipulated by adults, Ender had no idea what he was doing. In a sense, the adults were more like Hitler, Stalin, and all other mass murderers than Ender was. Even in the trial of negligent homicide, Colonel Graff justified his abuse of Ender with the Nuremberg Defense and the exact same statement the Nazis used to justify their actions. Graff said he did “what [he] believed was necessary for the preservation of the human race” (Card 235).
Hitler managed to captivate and motivate an entire country by using propaganda, the youth, and the power, to make the entire population of Germans hate Jews. Hitler succeeded indoctrination of the German peoples, in many ways. The main form of indoctrination was the Hitler Youth. Hitler believed that children could be totally indoctrinated in their education. Using propaganda was a crucial part for acquiring and maintaining power.
By ELIZABETH AXIAK NAZI EUGENICS REINSTATED AS THE NORM; ALL OF US WHO AREN’T DESIGNER MAY FACE THE CHAMBER. First there is disenfranchisement, then destruction of their entire livelihoods leading to impoverishment, followed by incarceration without edible food or drinkable water and finally, there is extermination.
This selfishness is what eventually prompts Equality to look at his reflection in awe, create electrical lighting with his ingenuity, and, lastly, love Liberty. By recognizing and accepting these individual strengths, interests, and desires, Equality is victorious in freeing himself from collectivism. Man only comprehends rigid conformity. Nevertheless, Equality is “not like that of our brothers” (19), with a grand stature, a fascinating face, and straight capable arms resting at his sides. His distinctive features, are however, not just arbitrary.
One of the most important parts of a strong, independent country is the leader who stands at the tip of the governmental hierarchy. This person has the potential to either lead a country into a blissful period of wealth, riches, and happiness or, a twisted road full of doubt, hatred, and fear. Out of these two, the latter is seen to be the most memorable in history. A perfect example of this kind of leader is Adolf Hitler who sparked the events of World War 2 and massacred millions of Jews. Similar figures exist in history with similar motivation, to create fear and obtain power with no remorse for human lives.
In 1938, Hitler was heard saying that every general was either cowardly or senseless. He believed that all of the victories claimed by Germany, were his, and his alone. He announced that his generals were over cautious and incapable. Hitler had a huge reliance on instinct. If he had an idea, he would put it forward before even thinking it through.
Hitler being the chancellor of Germany, convinced his people that nationalism and having their race being ideal was the only way to rebuild Germany. German people listened to Hitler’s ideas because this was their only hope to making their country
Although, Martin Luther King Jr. wrote hundred of years later, he includes the same approach that Thoreau does but, slightly from a different perspective. King states, “We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was ‘legal’... it was ‘illegal’ to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler’s Germany” (King 4). He references Hitler because Hitler influenced one of the most unforgettable and extremely unforgivable event in the world. And wants the audience to partake the horrendous event; and not let Americans become what was once the Germans.
Unlike during the Unmentionable Times, when men created “towers [that] rose to the sky,” it is an affliction to be born with powerful intellectual capacity and ambition in Ayn Rand’s apocalyptic, nameless society in Anthem. Collectivism is ostensibly the moral guidepost for humanity, and any perceived threat to the inflexible, authoritarian regime is met with severe punishment. The attack on mankind’s free will and reason is most evident in the cold marble engraving in the Palace of the World Council: “We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever” (6). Societal norms force homogeneity and sacrifice among all people.
Nazi’s considered Aryans, those of Nordic heritage, to be the master race. According to the national socialist german workers party, Aryans were more culturally gifted, intellectually superior and physically stronger than those of other cultures and backgrounds. The Nazis supported the movement and science behind eugenics, they contributed to the idea that the world could be improved by a practice known as genetic hygiene, this refers to the killing of those that don’t fit the ideal. In the case of the holocaust, this included Jews, people of color and those with a mental disability or illness. Besides values such as racialism, the Nazi party spoke greatly of Nationalism they wanted to restore Germany to their rightful glory that was wrongly snatched from them after the second world war.
I can see a lot of this video relating to Fahrenheit 451. From the burning of the books, to the vision of a perfect race, all of it. It all started with a perfect image of society. Adolf Hitler, was the person to lead this whole thing. He was the leader of the Nazi party, and left the people of Germany with a perfect image of society.
"Instead, the ‘Blood Protection Law,’ announced in Nuremberg on September 15, 1935, criminalized marriage or sexual relations between Jews and non-Jewish Germans." (Holocaust Encyclopedia). Hitler not only wanted to get rid of the bad heredity in Germany, but he wanted to pass down good genes. His goal was to create a genetic blueprint of Germany (Nazi Eugenics), to ensure that everyone was a part of “The Nordic Race” (Holocaust Encyclopedia). Hitler believed anyone that was a descent of “The Nordic Race” was genetically superior to other race.
Most people know that Hitler killed over six millions of Jews during the Holocaust. However, why did Hitler hate Jews? Why did he tried to wipe out this entire race of people? There are several possible reasons that may lead us to the answer. (Margaret whyguides)
Witness to History In late January, 1933 the world's’ sickest man Adolf Hitler was named Chancellor of Germany and leader of the Nazis. So this began the Holocaust. In 1944 a man Elie Wiesel experiences a year of suffering and torment, taken captive in the Auschwitz concentration camp during the Holocaust. He writes about these important events of his life in his book, Night.
Vo, Kayla Period 3 3/28/14 The Nazi Party’s Ascension to Power in Germany The signing of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 intended to bring worldwide peace after World War I and to penalize Germany for being responsible for the casualties that resulted. The penalty caused Germany to lose its pride, power, and nationalism, thus leaving the country in a helpless economic state and in an abyss. This poor condition after the Great War in 1918 caused citizens to have a strong will for change, which provided the perfect stage for political parties to rise in power. One political party in particular, the National Socialist German Worker's Party--otherwise known as the Nazi Party--captured the interest of the German public.
