The Nazi Party was revered and feared because they were able to exploit people’s fears. The Nazi party existed before the rise of Hitler, but they were a small and virtually unnoticeable party. The entire world was hit by an economic depression in the early 1930s and Germany was not immune. The people of the country were angry and impatient and feared that their parliament was too weak to rectify the economic situation.
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. Led by Adolf Hitler,
The Great Depression was a time where both Germany and the United States faced a low point in their Government. Unemployment was at an all-time high and both countries needed a leader who could guide them. Both Germany and the United States suffered from poor governing from past leaders and both had little faith in their country. Hitler and Franklin D. Roosevelt provided just that. Both Hitler and Roosevelt came to power in 1933. Hitler became the new chancellor of Germany while Roosevelt became president of the United States. They both had charisma and a powerful aura. However years to come would show that they used their power very differently. Hitler killed many people including 6 million Jews. While Franklin D. Roosevelt became the only
“The Jewish quarter was surrounded by barbed wire and later closed off with a 10foot high, 11mile long brick wall, which established the Warsaw ghetto. A 24 member Jewish Council, created by the Nazis and known as the Judenräte, maintained order and was the administrative link between the Jews and the Nazi Occupiers”(Warsaw Ghetto Uprising). An uprising that lasted five months by the Jewish people was turned around when Nazis bombed the ghetto and demolished synagogues in WWII. They moved in 150,000 Jews and established the Warsaw Ghetto. Over the next couple years it became cramped and many of the people died of starvation, disease, and extermination. Many Jews were also transported to death camps which was Hitler’s final solution. A Jewish
Adolf Hitler has become one of the most well-known dictators this world has ever seen. His power didn’t only spread throughout Germany, but throughout Europe as well. During World War II and now, there are people that believe his actions were inhumane and then there are others who follow him and worship him like a god, for example, Neo-Nazis. Before World War II, Germany was on the break of a serious depression, everything started to fall apart. Their economy was crashing and they just lost a major war. Everyone was looking for someone to point blame at. Hitler gave German citizens someone to blame and planned to purify his country. The Jewish people were very well known for their economic stability and this led to the idea that they were stealing the Germans money and creating the depression. The German citizens began to agree with
Adolf Hitler did not live for a very long life, but during his time he took a nation that was in an economic depression and rose into power to rebuild Germany. Hitler was the leader of the Nazi party which contributed many things to Germany and impacted many of the Germans not only socially, but also politically. Hitler grew as a great leader and gained many followers over time as he grew more and more people started listening to him because he persuaded people with his speeches.The Nazi organized a lot of cultural activities to encourage the Germans to support Hitler, the aim was to shape the minds of Germans to think like a Nazi. Hitler had a big social impact in Germany for example, Hitler wanted a dominant race so he created extermination camps to
Examples and stories like this demonstrate the massive influence the party had through their rallies and speeches. Furthermore, many themes in his speeches focused on the injustice of the Treaty of Versailles and the incompetence of the Weimar government, which were problems many German citizens were concerned with (Sax 68). One of Hitler’s most influential speeches happened in fall of 1923 when a crisis with the French and Belgian occupations caused tremendous inflation because of the Weimar speeches happened in Bavaria. Hitler convinced other right-wing group leaders in a beer hall to overthrow the Bavarian government who supported the Weimar government called the Beer Hall Putsch (Sax 75-78). Although the Putsch resulted in a failure leading
When Hitler and his party took over in Germany, many monstrous events happened. The party and Hitler took power over everything and had many supporters following what they did. They were also the creators of the concentration camps. The concentration camps consisted of slave-labor camps, extermination camps, and many more. What would have happened if Hitler never became so powerful? Why didn 't anyone try to stop the Nazis? Although people have heard of Auschwitz, they don’t know the depth of what went on in the camps or how the Nazis were able to achieve such horrible power.
Totalitarianism is a system of government that is based primarily on power and having absolute authority. Totalitarianism was first introduced in 1924 with Stalin and was later adapted by people such as Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. They used totalitarianism to have a single-party government with complete control, and blind devotion to the state. Anyone who opposed their ideas or posed a threat was immediately disposed of. Joseph Stalin had also used communism while Mussolini used fascism. While totalitarianism did create a united state, we need to study totalitarianism to prevent it from happening again because it causes many problems, extreme conflict, and it can lead to wars.
Within six months of his election, Hitler mad any opposition to the National Socialists party (Nazi) illegal
Being idealistic, influential, supportive, and strategic are just some of the few traits that construct leadership. According to Martin M. Chemers, leadership is defined as “a process of social influence in which one person is able to enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task”. Adolf Hitler shockingly exceeds the expectations that a leader should have. No other person in the entire world’s history influenced as many people as Hitler did. Even though he was in charge of the brutal carnage and torture of millions of innocent Jewish souls, he has proven that he is a phenomenal leader.
Hitler and the Nazis believed that the Aryan people and Germany was destined to rule the world. They did not believe that Jews could be Germans. They also thought that communism was a Jewish invention, that was another reason why he hated the Jews. Not only did they blame Jews for communism but they believed that Jews were the underlying cause of Germany's lost in World War I. The group also believed the Treaty of Versailles must be rejected and all reparations cleared. In their eyes they thought Germany should be seen as a strong and forceful nation in the
The leadership style of leaders may differ drastically; even those within the same political bracket may be complete opposites. But when it comes to Nazism leader Adolf Hitler and Stalinism leader Joseph Stalin, there are many similarities and differences. Both of them were masters of propaganda and the use of fear and confidence. But when it comes to the state of the country and economy, Stalin takes it. Hitler was a powerful leader, but Stalin outdid him on every front.
Before the reichstag fire In 1929 the americans stock market crashed and sent U,S,A into a disaster economic depression. Countries around the world began to feel the effects of this depression. American bankers and businessmen lost huge amounts of money in the crash . To pay off their debts they asked german banks to repay the money they had borrowed.
