When Stalin died in 1953, Nikita Khrushchev came into power. He brought about huge changes such as the de-Stalinization of the Soviet Union, the progress of the early Soviet space program, and ‘several relatively liberal reforms in areas of domestic policy’. However, as to quote the internet, ‘Hoping eventually to rely on missiles for national defense, Khrushchev ordered major cuts in conventional forces. Despite the cuts, Khrushchev 's rule saw the most tense years of the Cold War, culminating in the Cuban Missile Crisis. Some of Khrushchev 's policies were seen as erratic, particularly by his emerging rivals within the Party, who quietly rose in strength and deposed him in October 1964’.
In 1922, Stalin became the General Secretary of the Communist Party. This means that he was the leader of the communist party. Stalin became so powerful that he could not be stopped. He controlled the soviet union by terror. If you disagreed with him, or you didn’t like what he was doing, he would kill you, have you killed, or put you in a labor camp.
Once the war ended, Germany was temporarily divided into four different sectors for England, France, USA and the USSR. By 1946, when the Soviets were in control of Eastern Europe, an “Iron Curtain” consolidated the division of Europe into a West bloc that incorporated the western democracies, including the United States, and an Eastern bloc with the Soviets. Yet in 1949 Germany witnessed another division with the creation of West and East Germany, which put an end to any dialogue in favor of a reunified nation. These ideological conflicts and divisions that took place in Germany, particularly the creation of the Berlin Wall in 1961, symbolized the main conflict of the Cold war. Germany was not only the center for the conflict between capitalism and communism, but the outcomes of the separation of Berlin demonstrated to the world the superiority of capitalism over Soviet communism in the

He was also accountable for influencing boycotts against Jewish businesses and staging of the opening of Reichstag. The significance of Goebbels is that his control of the propaganda machine lead many to see that Hitler may be the change that they wanted. The Final Solution was a plan that was made and carried out by the German Nazis in the 20th century. It was planned at the Wannsee Conference, at meeting between the SS and the German government.
Robert Stevenson uses his protagonist’s, Dr. Jekyll, person versus self conflict to illustrate this point. Throughout the text, the reader learns that Dr. Jekyll was born into good fortune and was well-respected in society. However, the reader learns that it was not enough for him. He craves irregularities and he seeks a way to experience both sides of his identity without harming his reputation, which leads him to immoral experiments that bring out Hyde. To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55).
As a result, Ingo became exposed to different types of ideology. Of course, this all led to him co-founding the political class of the neo-nazis. This happened after Ingo was released from prison for constantly speaking out against the government. Neo-Nazis are people that openly express themselves as in favor of the original Nazis. Ingo’s group of fellow Neo-Nazis would start fights with anarchists, police, and anyone else who openly spoke out against them.
With his death came a change in the Hungarian regime from the “hard line” communist leadership of Matyas Rakosi to the reformist Imre Nagy and his belief in communism “with a human face.” Not long after Stalin’s death there was a revolt of workers in Eastern Germany on the 17th of June 1953. The Soviets suppressed this revolt militarily and set a precedent for how they handled future revolts. When Poland had an anti-communist revolt in June of 1956 the Soviets imposed martial

The Mensheviks were losing popularity, and the masses turned to the Bolsheviks to lead Russia and do what they proclaimed, which was Lenin 's 4 goals in his speech. During October, Lenin made speeches and argued to the Central Committee to seize power in Russia. Lenin and the Bolsheviks now had enough support to rule Russia and overthrow the government. At first they had only the people, but now they also had large parts of the army to support them. After a vote, the Central Committee finally agreed to seize power and set up The Military Revolutionary Committee, lead by Leon Trotsky.
As mentioned in the article titled. “Totalitarianism in the 21st Century”, it can be observed that “Totalitarianism in fascist Germany and communist Russia was a fine and dandy undertaking consisting of slave labor and concentration camps” (Stein). This explains the way in which the Germans under the rule of Hitler were a victim of totalitarianism, and at the same time they would not have any choice but to go with the will of Hitler. It is something that made the people to support him as he would provide them with basic necessities, but apart from that there was more of his will and at the same time his choices that made him to become a victim of being killed as the things he used to do, like have concentration camps and massive genocide was something that was not accepted by the humanity which led to his
