While in prison, Hitler wrote his first book Mein Kampf (My Struggle), which was published in 1925. This work detailed Hitler 's ideas of German nationalism, anti semitism, and anti-Bolshevism. Talking about the human struggle that said that might makes right, Hitler 's book became the base for the Nazi Party 's racist beliefs and murderous practices. After Hitler was released from prison, he formally resurrected the Nazi Party that without Hitler ceased to exist. Hitler began rebuilding and reorganizing the Party, waiting for an opportunity to gain political power in Germany.
“Adolf Hitler demonstrated his political skill in taking advantage of the opportunity provided by the depression. He developed his Nazi Party into a mass movement and used a combination of his popular support and behind-the-scenes intrigue to propel himself into power,” (Meier). Finally, Hitler started a huge war when he was taking over Germany’s government and ostracizing Jewish
Hitler’s main focus was to “ethnically cleanse” Germany in an attempt to create the perfect race. Since he was able to create his own laws, he decided to create laws that gave Jews few rights, and, with the help of a man named Adolf Eichmann, eventually leading them to be placed in camps called concentration camps. The Holocaust went on for a long time before anyone found out what had been going on causing the effects to be tremendous. Adolf Hitler was appointed as Chancellor of Germany on January 30th, 1933. He created a party called the Nazi party and they later started World War II.
They wanted to make it appear as if it was standard German citizens; if other average citizens saw their peers attacking the Jewish people, they would think that that was what was acceptable. So they preformed these violent attacks in street clothes and made them appear to be created from the mindset of the average German of the time. This normalization was what allowed a surge of anti-Jewish legislation to be passed in the autumn and winter of 1938-1939. This gradual accumulation of anti-Jewish propaganda and building violence where what allowed Hitler to maintain his power and systematically destroy millions upon millions of
Chamberlain followed a policy of appeasement with Hitler in order to keep peace and avoid any future potential conflict from occuring. The three points that exemplify the reason as to why Chamberlain appeased Hitler, all indicate that Chamberlain’s Britain saw appeasement as the best possible approach towards Hitler’s radical German regime. In the period after World War 1, nations across Europe began to build and strengthen themselves in order to gain the collective security of their nation as well as international prestige and superiority. The recently signed Treaty of Versailles severely punished Germany for the damage it had caused. When Germany began to grow and expand, breaking the rules established by the Treaty of Versailles, international leaders such as Neville Chamberlain believed in a policy of appeasement because they thought that Germany was simply trying to recover from all that was taken away from them.
“The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it” (Joseph Mengele), is what the virtuous german people would think if they had been ready to give up hope. People of many races were targeted by the nazis for doing nothing wrong. The Nazis conducted experiments on subjects without consent from them and the weak races that became the targets not only panicked, but also lost their rights. Innocent people’s fate was becoming vague, as well as Germany becoming shrouded by a cloud of terror that developed from the violations of many people’s rights. With an iron fist ruling over Germany, the Nazi party abused their powers by taking away the people 's will when they introduced experimentations directed towards the weak and innocent,
From learning about the ways Hitler changed the minds of Germany, we can understand how to prevent this thinking and understand just why a nation could become evil. Roth says “Scientists preformed research and tested their radical theories on those branded subhuman or nonhuman by German science.” And earlier in the article he said how the society was scientifically advanced. That is just one way how Germany was manipulated. Scientists began doing test on humans who were considered unhuman by Hitler’s rule. I believe Hitler was one of the most destructive and manipulative men in History.
"Instead, the ‘Blood Protection Law,’ announced in Nuremberg on September 15, 1935, criminalized marriage or sexual relations between Jews and non-Jewish Germans." (Holocaust Encyclopedia). Hitler not only wanted to get rid of the bad heredity in Germany, but he wanted to pass down good genes. His goal was to create a genetic blueprint of Germany (Nazi Eugenics), to ensure that everyone was a part of “The Nordic Race” (Holocaust Encyclopedia). Hitler believed anyone that was a descent of “The Nordic Race” was genetically superior to other race.
They were purely the ideas of the Nazi’s. Before Adolf Hitler came to power and implemented the T-4 program, which came from Tiergartenstrasse 4, Berlin the ideological ground had been already prepared. 1920, the growing popularity of eugenics, as Detlev Peukert has argued “between reformist optimism and potentially murderous schemas of eugenic classification and special treatment (sonderbehandlung). (The politics of German Child Welfare from the Empire to the Federal Republic, 1996, Dickinson Ross, p.143) two eminent German academics, Karl Binding a law professor and Alfred Hoche a doctor published their work “Permission to destroy life unworthy of life” they portrayed that it is acceptable for an outside agency to determine what individual life was worthless and an individual had to justify his existence according to criteria imposed from outside. The cultural factors In Germany during the time had a direct influence in the medical establishment and the social sciences.
In 1919, the Treaty of Versailles, imposed punitive territorial, military, and economic provisions on the defeated Germany. Land was lost and divided amongst the allies, while Germany took full responsibility for the “cost” of war. The country was left poor, and its economy was ruined, they were in need of a someone to ring them back to the global power they once were, they needed a fascist leader. Adolf Hitler was considered by many to be an extremely charismatic person, he claimed that the German people were better, stronger and more intelligent than any other
