The judges were chaired by Georg Neithardt, who had been a judge of Hitler at another incident before. Except for Neithardt, who tended to be lenient towards right-wing defendants who claimed to have acted out of sincere, patriotic reasons, the judges were pro-Nazi. At the trial, Hitler got a chance to broadcast his views, as every word he spoke was being published. He claimed to have acted out of selfless devotion and for the good of the people and took all responsibility for the coup. Explaining his reasons, he declared that the government was treacherous for signing the Treaty of Versailles, which many Germans agreed on, and explained that the clear communist threat in Germany had to be eliminated.
As Nazi commentators approvingly put it, this was law intended to keep out ‘undesirables.’ (Whitman para. 3).” Whitman effectively uses this proof, for when he uses the example that Congress passed immigration legislation to keep out “undesirables” he also uses another example by quoting Nazi commentators. All things considered, the immigration legislation and the approval of Nazi commentators demonstrates that the Nazi’s loved America.
9In what ways did the Treaty of Versailles punish Germany? When Germany surrendered, they knew they had to pay a price, but the peace treaty was more severe than they expected. British Prime Minister David Lloyd George, French Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau and American President Woodrow Wilson, the three leaders of the Allies, decided the fate of Germany. The Treaty
Adolf Hitler seized the opportunity to fix the demand of the public about emergence of a nation. He gained the public support by propaganda and refusing the terms mentioned in the Treaty of Versailles. He gave citizens a sense of confidence to rebuild their nation. However, these things facilitated the rising of Hitler’s power on the right. Hitler used them to start ultranationalism, which brought about the beginning of World War
Germans had allowed Hitlers’ party to be their government structure because Hitler had promised to solve their economic problems. He had used many effective strategies to do so such as brainwashing, telling people they were superior race, and using dictatorships. The Nazi Party could have been avoided if the politicians weren’t so concerned with losing, and thinking they could control Hitler, which is now know that they couldn’t. It’s important to study the Nazi power so we can stop the ideology that one race is superior and help prevent another
In the twentieth century, conflicts were fought on the front lines and the minds of the people through propaganda. Global governments applied persuasive communication by the use of visual images, which can be easily recognized and understood, to agitate or psersuade the general public. “Hitler’s fervent desire to attain propaganda supremacy among nations was a direct result of the German defeat in World War I and his belief that superior allied propaganda trumped Kaiser Wilhelm II’s meager output.” It seemed that Hilter valued the importance of effective propaganda by appointing Josef Goebbels, as The Reichs Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda minister, to enforce Nazim idealogy. The ministry was responsible for censorship and controlling the literature, visual arts, broadcasting and other forms of mass media. They used propaganda to influence the way people think.
But when America interfered with the USSR’s plans they tried to help Germany by occupying Western Germany, this helped America’s sphere of influence because not only did they have control over germany, but they were able to convert West Germany to become a democratic country. On 31 March 1948, Congress voted for Marshall Aid. Stalin saw this as an attempt to undermine Russian influence in eastern Europe. The Russians started stopping and searching all road and rail traffic into Berlin. Finally, on 23 June Britain and America introduced a new currency into Bizonia.
Japan adopted Fascism due to it worsening relation with the west, increasing support within Japan and failure of democracy and unresolved economical problems. By the time World War I ended, Japan had benefitted greatly from the Treaty of Versailles but the Japanese Government was worried that as the League
Hitler and the Nazi party used this to their advantage by appealing to the working class of people. They told the working class of people that they would be protected from communism and that there would be a restoration of law and order. Also promising more employment, which in January 1939 the unemployment in Germany went down to 302,000. They also appealed to the upper class by convincing them that the Nazi 's would reprise the Treaty of Versailles. Hitler also used the depression by taking advantage of the elitist government.
I’m sure they did not want another Spartacus. Here however the romans actually tried not to kill Christians, which was easier said than done. Christians were only too willing to be martyred as it was the quickest way to heaven. “Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in Heaven…” Rome was not stupid.
