Germany had been an empire until the First World War, the loss of which shook the German people to their very foundations. The psychological impact of going from an empire to a defeated nation was utterly traumatic. At the same time, Marxism was raging throughout Europe, toppling numerous governments and seen as a threat everywhere by the establishments. Hitler made people feel they were great again and played to their nationalistic and patriotic sentiments. It was easier for people to believe they were great and stab them in the back than to believe they had been failures and deserved what was happening to them.
It’s very clear how Hitler uses the text to convey the image of the savior of the German people, who knows exactly what is best for his country. We then observe the “Ethos”, which is the credibility or reliability of the speaker and his morals. To the people of Germany, Nazi Leader Hitler was the most trusted leader they could follow, and his morals were unquestioned, thus this speech made a huge influence. “Pathos” is the passion of the speaker and his perspective when talking about the subject he is discussing. Hitler’s violent passion towards the executors of the assassination and the idea of revenge if very obvious in this speech.
He became an intelligence officer in the military, and then became a member of the German Workers Party, or later, Nazi, and finally moved up to the position of the chairman of the Nazi. Along the way of getting these positions, however,Hitler had became popular because of his speeches against other politicians, Jews, and the Treaty of Versailles. With his new popularity, Hitler was able to run for Germany’s president during Germany’s great depression. Although he lost the election both rounds to the rival candidate, Paul Von Hindenburg, Hindenburg had appointed him chancellor. This new position in Germany’s government gave Hitler the opportunities he needed to seize control of the country.
Besides, people should have courage to question, to oppose, to speak your opinion boldly. No matter when, people should not lose their courage and thinking. In 1930s, if most Germans have their own thinking and really consider about the whole country, tragedy will be stopped. Unfortunately, most people were misled by Hitler and lost
Germany had to get rid of their emperor. So Germany was looking for a good leader to average France and they basically accepted Hitler.. Hitler later headed the Nazi party. In the trenches during the WW1, Hitler talked about and was critical about everybody how they were not deeply committed to the Germ war. Hitler got injured in 1916 in the war and was treated for 2 months at a hospital min Berlin. Hitler said the trauma of defeat made him convinced that the Jews caused it.
He destroyed his oncoming opponents in the eye of the public which gained him a great reputation and name for himself, perceived as the leader they needed for the positive future in Germany to be. Hitler used every downfall in society including the Treaty of Versailles, the Weimar Republic and the Great Depression as a gain and advantages he had, including being an outsider. Although Hitler was an Austrian, he was always impressed of Germany, he fought for Germany and many Germans didn 't realize he was an
World War 2 started on 3 September 1939. Although there were many cause for the war, like the failure of the Treaty of Versailles, threat of communism, and appeasement. Hitler and the Nazi party were the main cause, they were linked with all other causes, making them stand out as the ‘main cause’. Everything that had happened after World War 1; the Treaty of Versailles, the Great Depression, Communism and Fascism, all helped Hitler gain trust from the Germans, as he said he would ‘make Germany great again’. Starting another world war within 20 years of the ‘war that was meant to end all wars’.
This organisation settled the art, literature, newspapers e.t.c. to ensure that everyone thought in a decent way that wasn’t a threat to the Nazi party. This meant that the Nazi party only let you hear and see what they wanted you to hear and see. Goebbels also organised mass rallies where Hitler presented amazing speeches with his flair as a brilliant speaker. This is a quote from Goebbels talking about propaganda: “The essence of propaganda consists in winning people over to an idea so sincerely, so vitally, that in the end they succumb to it and utterly can never escape from it.” (Propaganda in Nazi Germany).
1. Introduction Homosexuals were not immediately persecuted more after Hitler rose to power, but that would change with the Röhm-Putsch on June 30, 1934, when the openly homosexual leader of the SA (Sturmabteilung), Ernst Röhm, as well as other leading SA officials and opponents of the state were imprisoned, with Röhm being executed on July 1, 1934. The stated objective to the public was to eradicate homosexuality from the National Socialist ranks, (Jellonnek, 1990, p. 96), and this justification found immense support from the German public, who "were relieved to see that the Führer was ready to eliminate homosexuality within the ranks of his most loyal followers" (Moeller, 2010, p. 523). This support from the public enabled the revision of §175 in 1935, a law that had prohibited sexual relations between men since the

Some of the short term impacts that happened are, at the time it had reduced the number of effective empires in the world. It brought them all the way down to 2 effective empires, the United States and the Soviet Union. During World War 2 another short term impact that causes a huge problem was when it bankrupted the British. Though the good thing was that it occupied the French which the United Nations then planned attack against them since they had become allies with the Germans. Also Hitler claimed that Austria was on there side and then invade and took it over.
World War I ended in 1918 with the victorious Allied powers, and the peace-promising Treaty of Versailles. However, this treaty 's peace did not last long as its unrealistic demands caused strong resentment within the Central powers against the Allied powers. Territorial losses, reparation payments, and inflation all left Europe in economic ruins. The damage and destruction that resulted from World War I paved a clear path that allowed for World War II to occur. It began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler gained power and, with the help of the Nazi Party, turned Germany in a totalitarian dictatorship.
With his leadership powers “weakened” it is believed that “those who were responsible for the Holocaust’s initiation (namely other high-ranking officials within the Nazi Party) acted independently of Hitler” (Draper, 1999, p.14). This also brings into light the term ‘Cumulative radicalization’. Using cumulative radicalization is an easy way of explaining how over time, the Nazis persuaded many of the German people to take ever more extreme positions against Jews, and other persecuted groups, until the Holocaust became possible. It is also stated in the article ‘Law, justice, and Holocaust”, “less known are the contributions of “ordinary” people—doctors, lawyers, teachers, civil servants, officers, and other professionals throughout German society—whose individual actions, when taken together, resulted in dire consequences. Put simply, the Holocaust could not have happened without them”.
Hitler combined terror and propaganda, with his new policies to turn the unsuspecting Germany into a totalitarian state. Along with the Hitler youth to ensure that the next generation would be loyal to the NAZI ideology. In 1928 Hitler and the NAZI party got 2.6% of the votes (Pearson, 2013). Then in 1932 the NAZI party received 37.7% of the votes (Pearson, 2013). This was due to the NAZI campaign and propaganda.
Hitler’s main focus was to “ethnically cleanse” Germany in an attempt to create the perfect race. Since he was able to create his own laws, he decided to create laws that gave Jews few rights, and, with the help of a man named Adolf Eichmann, eventually leading them to be placed in camps called concentration camps. The Holocaust went on for a long time before anyone found out what had been going on causing the effects to be tremendous. Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor of Germany on January 30th, 1933. He created a party called the Nazi party and they later started World War II.
