Many historians look at this issue with hindsight, comparing Hitler’s government to the model of one today. Instead, Hitler’s government should be analysed while keeping in mind that Germany was a totalitarian state. Since the country believes in a one ruler system, the government is very likely to be structured similarly as well. This in turn raises the question, through the system Hitler implemented, how were politicians able to prove themselves worthy of power to Hitler? Did this structure of the government truly hinder the rise of these politicians?
In 1918, some of the spartacists formed the German Communist Party (Spartacists). The Germans were afraid of Communism and the Red Plague which was death by government. The USSR was communist and they had the Red Plague, which was probably why Germany was afraid of communism. In January 1919, the communists rebelled in Berlin, so Ebert allowed the Freikorps to bring stability back (Spartacists). Most of the the Spartacists were civilians, and most of the Freikorps had a
Political education became a compulsory subject since then. Children learnt about "worthy" and "unworthy" races through lessons from day to day in order to make the children remember that Aryan race is superior to all races. Germans take races very seriously, they measure children’s heads with tape measures, checking the color of their eyes and, as well as, the texture of their hair against charts of Aryan or
Throughout ww2 propaganda seemed to be the main thing that got into everybody 's head. It changed the way that they thought about other countries and the way that they thought about their own country. Hitler did a great job at using propaganda to control the minds of his country, but he didnt use it for good. It wasn 't just in Germany that propaganda was used. It was used it just about every country but mainly in Britain, France and America.
We chose Adolf Hitler for our project because of his somewhat controversial leadership. It is no great secret that as a dictator he will go down as one of the most infamous political faces the world has ever seen. While the name Adolf itself is not banned there is a restrictive law on first names in Germany " in order to protect the child, the name must not be absurd or degrading in any way" but the registry office would strongly encourage you to rethink and ponder what it would do to your child. That is testament enough, unpopular name for and unpopular Austrian guy, although Joseph is still going strong and look what Stalin was up to........( just saying) ( if anyone laughs thats a good start) Many would argue that his heinous crimes against
Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question. Many believe that the Nazis were the cause and started World War II. These people believe that the Nazis are to be held responsible for the holocaust and the many
For example, the Nazi party of Germany used this tactic constantly. As written by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, “While some books were removed from classrooms by censors, other textbooks, newly written, were brought in to teach students blind obedience to the party, love for Hitler, and Antisemitism.” Like The Party, the Nazi party manipulated the past through either editing or outright burning books. In fact, with no physical evidence to
The German economy was damaged, people lost their jobs, and the people were turned against their government. Life in Germany became miserable after the signing of what was called a peace treaty. Because of all this, the Germans desired a strong leader, someone who would once again help Germany rise to power. They wanted revenge, and after a short time, they were sure to get that. But without the peace treaty this anger and vengeance would not have existed in the first place.
Hitler rose to power after the first world, the German government was weak and the people wanting a change. That’s when the Nazi party came into the picture, their values were far different from the current government. Nazi values including; Authoritarianism, Totalitarianism, Economic sovereignty, Traditional values, and Militarism. Although probably their most famous is their value of Racialism, which is the main difference between their style of government and other governments of their time. Nazi’s considered Aryans, those of Nordic heritage, to be the master race.
Whether the history is to get inspired from or shiver from depends on the guidance that one gives. Leadership of Adolf Hitler can be seen as a dreadful example in this regard. After coming to power in 1932, he outlawed all forms of youth groups and replaced them with “Hitler Youth” and “German League of Young Girls”. They were taught to revere Hitler. Hitler could harness the power of youth and as a result, in the name of the Fuhrer, the German youth committed horrible atrocities as
