Germany was a closed world, with knowledge being extremely restrained and limited to education only produced by Germany. Due to these confines, Hitler led his nation into a mindset in line with his doctrines which emphasized loyalty to the state of Germany and obeying Hitler’s rule (141). Judy Monhollen describes the anti-Semitic curriculum found in schools throughout Nazi Germany as racist and proving Aryan superiority in her article “The Effect of Nazi Propaganda on Ordinary Germans”. Monhollen demonstrates that, “history classes focused on the Nazi revolution and reinterpreted history based on racial principles, especially the significance of the Aryan race in world history. Biology centered on the laws of heredity, racial breeding, and
I will explain why I think that the putsch itself failed, but successfully, if indirectly played a part in how the Nazis rose to power. In 1923, Stresemann called off the passive resistance in the Ruhr and agreed that Germany would start paying the reparation fees again. Many right-winged enemies of the Weimar Republic felt betrayed, humiliated and wounded in their pride. Their
The structionalists’ side of the argument is further contributed by Gretchen E. Schafft in her book Racism to Genocide. While, all other sources that have been mentioned argue points to show how the scientists are not totally accountable. Gretchen opposes their arguments and confirms that the scientists are to be held accountable for the deeds committed during the war. Gretchen mentions throughout her book that the German scientists informed the Nazi Political views and help shape the German Reich to form rational, unified homogenous state . Gretchen states, that while Hitler was fighting for power, he found ideas that he needed already in place.
After the events in Charlottesville where some people proudly marched with their swastikas and one of them killed a woman named Heather Heyer, people took a new interest in nazis. Who are those people? Didn’t we beat them 70 years ago? One of the most common mistakes I see is people judging by the name of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party and the fact that they were big on state authority, and deliberately trying to place them to the left of the political spectrum, since the right is good and holy and could never produce such monsters. That is not true, and while National Socialism took ideas from both sides of the spectrum, you cannot really say they are leftists.
It led to American banks withdrawing their loans from Germany, and the already struggling German economy collapse overnight. Hitler took advantage of the people’s anger, offering them convenient scapegoats and a promise to restore Germany to their former greatness.” (Gendler Alex, Hazard Anthony, How did Hitler rise to Power?, YouTube). This overwhelming event, strengthens Hitler’s support with people calling for a stronger leader that will not let Germany down but put Germany to their former
Firstly, follower might act blindly what those leaders say. They were blinded by their value as they value their leader, so whatever their leader says, they will believe it is true. Some leaders use this opportunity to give the bad effect to the society. For example, Adolf Hitler was appreciated by most of the German people when he solved the Great Depression; however, he governed his country without ethic value and their people followed him without notice. Secondly, the charismatic leaders can grow its own sake and forget their purposes.
While we can easily argue that Nazi Germany and Hitler’s rule was a totalitarian regime there were some aspects of the German life that were not controlled by the Nazis and there were some groups who managed to see through the front that Hitler was putting and opposed him. Education and the German Youth is a big example of indoctrination and the Nazi totalitarian regime as what was taught to the future of Germany was very selective. Teachers who had been teaching throughout the Weimar Republic saw this new method of teaching in a different way than younger people and as such many of them were fired because the Nazi’s feared that they might teach the german youth the old ways which Hitler viewed as a period of weakness and failure. For the children living in Germany at the time of Hitler’s rule, the Nazis were a new and exciting thing and when the Hitler youth was formed children felt like they were a part of something and even enjoyed wearing the uniform. They were also taught to love Hitler which is now seen as a form of indoctrination because you are teaching kids that not liking Hitler is a crime.
he also used propaganda to help people join his party. the way to Hitler Rise in power was quite unique because Germany needed a strong leader after them falling into the depression, Hitler getting status in the German Workers Party and how he control over the government. After World War II Germany was destroyed with a huge bill to pay for the war, land getting taken from Germany, Germany Army being restricted to a smaller amount of people. Germany was bankrupt with it 's on money worthless. many of the German people felt humiliated Germany has become.
The Nazis used nationalism to control the minds of the youth as well as to impose their ideologies. The first indication of this is the fact that Germans made a statement that the characteristics of the Nordic race are courage, bravery, creativity and loyalty. Also, the German race is the purest race of the European people according to the book, Deutscher National-Katechismus. This evidence is relevant because it displays how the Nazis used their extreme nationalism to make the youth believe that the German race was special. By doing so, they controlled the youths’ way of thinking and, in a way, manipulated them into thinking like Nazis.
Adolf Hitler is most known for succeeding in “ convincing his country of the National Socialism ideals”. It played a large role in turning German people even more anti-Semitic. “The Jews’ economic progress, cultural achievements, and social ascendancy added a new dimension to their neighbors’ antipathy. In 19th century the Jewish community in Europe was to some extent accepted and respected. In 1866 even “German Chancellor Otto von Bismarck participated in the dedication of a synagogue in Berlin” in order to show appreciation to the Jewish society.
