However in Roosevelt’s speech he wanted the people to agree to end the policy of neutrality and help our allies. Whereas in Kennedy’s speech he wanted both the people of the United States and our foreign allies to focus on what connects us instead of what separates us. On January 6, 1941, Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave his Four Freedoms speech as a state of the union address.
Hitler had used propaganda and other tactics to make the German people eager for war. He used the treaty of Versailles as an example for the German people as their anger on the loss of World War one and their treatment under the treaty of Versailles to make them want to take revenge. Moreover, after a winter of waiting, Hitler resumed back to attack on April 9, 1940, nevertheless, as The Blitzkrieg tactic had succeeded on Poland, Hitler attacked Denmark and Norway and occupied them. One month later, Germany launched attacked on Netherlands, Belgium, and France. The main assault was through the Luxembourg and the Ardennes Forest.
World War 2 started on 3 September 1939. Although there were many cause for the war, like the failure of the Treaty of Versailles, threat of communism, and appeasement. Hitler and the Nazi party were the main cause, they were linked with all other causes, making them stand out as the ‘main cause’. Everything that had happened after World War 1; the Treaty of Versailles, the Great Depression, Communism and Fascism, all helped Hitler gain trust from the Germans, as he said he would ‘make Germany great again’. Starting another world war within 20 years of the ‘war that was meant to end all wars’.
Woodrow Wilson’s speech, “War Message” was important because diplomatic relations with Germany were severed and war was about to break out. A resolution for war was passed by congress. Woodrow Wilson’s speech had a huge impact on congress’ decision. Could you imagine having to make the decision of whether your country will enter into war or not? On February 1, Woodrow Wilson released the extraordinary announcement of the Imperial German Government.
Joseph Goebbels was hired by Hitler to help him win support for the Nazis through propaganda (Propaganda in Nazi Germany).Joseph Goebbels was excellent at propaganda and had the official title of Mister Propaganda and National Enlightenment. Hitler gave him two main tasks which was to make sure that the German people did not view anything that would be harmful to the Nazi party and that the views of the Nazi party were put forward to the most greatest extent. As a result of these two aims, the Nazi propaganda was extremely significant to Hitler’s rise to power as it gave him the means to convey his ideologies in the best way possible. Nazi Germany introduced the idea of censorship due to Goebbels setting up the Reich Chamber of Commerce. This organisation settled the art, literature, newspapers e.t.c.
The Treaty of Versailles had an immense significance over Germany in 1919-1939 as it would cause large political, economical, financial, geographical, and military changes for Germany and would result in the rise of the Nazis. The Treaty of Versailles was a treaty to help “settle” international conflicts after World War 1 by deciding who was responsible for the war and how they should be punished. The treaty was written up by Great Britain, France, and The United States of America. Germany was ultimately decided as responsible for the war and was punished heavily as a result. This was in large part due to the complaints of George Clemenceau about the treaty’s original leniency.
Looking back at the early 1930’s, there are many people today who would criticize the British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain with his policy of appeasement towards the Natzi leader, Adolf Hitler. Appeasement is defined as “the policy of acceding to the demands of a potentially hostile nation in the hope of maintaining peace.” However, historians now know that peace was never an option for the German leader. His invasion of the Rhineland and Austria was only the beginning; Hitler had his eyes set on Poland, Russia and eventually the world. Chamberlain has been heavily criticized for simply handing over the Sudetenland because this action showed that Hitler had the upper hand.
It nourished the hatred people had for Weimar and helped Hitler rise and gain power. It was part of many factors, which slowly destroyed the Weimar Government and the values it defended. It was stipulated that in the Weimar constitution, before Hitler became president, that the army had to swear an oath of loyalty to the president and republic. This meant that the army had to follow the orders appointed by the President.
In the trenches during the WW1, Hitler talked about and was critical about everybody how they were not deeply committed to the Germ war. Hitler got injured in 1916 in the war and was treated for 2 months at a hospital min Berlin. Hitler said the trauma of defeat made him convinced that the Jews caused it. The defeat of the German war shocked many Germans. The Communist posed violent revolution throughout Germany.
The Treaty basically collapsed Germany’s economy and due to the demanding nature of things included in the Treaty (such as reparations), thousands starved. Germany was basically forced to take credit for the entire war, and was forced to pay $33 billion marks in reparations due to Parts VIII and IX of the Treaty (originally, they were supposed to pay $63 billion marks, but the amount was lowered). Germany was not allowed to participate in the discussion, so all of the decisions (including Article 231, which stated that Germany claimed full responsibility for the war along with its allies) were made without it’s input or opinion. Along with these drastic measures, Germany was also not allowed to join the League of Nations (Part 1 of the Treaty),
Some of the short term impacts that happened are, at the time it had reduced the number of effective empires in the world. It brought them all the way down to 2 effective empires, the United States and the Soviet Union. During World War 2 another short term impact that causes a huge problem was when it bankrupted the British. Though the good thing was that it occupied the French which the United Nations then planned attack against them since they had become allies with the Germans. Also Hitler claimed that Austria was on there side and then invade and took it over.
H.G Wells said, the Great War was supposed to be “the war to end all wars”; ironically enough a few years later a second world war broke out due to Germany feeling like the Treaty of Versailles treated them unfairly and the League of Nations having little to no power. World War II started on September 1. 1939 and ended nearly six years later on September 2, 1945. The war was long and bloody with nearly sixty million civilians and soldier casualties combined (according to nationalww2museum.org). There were five major turning points in World War II.
(Document 6) Following this quote Churchill gave a Parliamentary speech: *“[…] I asked that Britain, together with France and other powers guarantee the security of Czechoslovakia. […] In time Czechoslovakia will be swallowed by the Nazi regime […].” (Document 6) Winston knew that even if the nations tried to appease Hitler, The Nazi regime would still take control.
The first way in which Hitler appealed to the Germans can be attributed to nationalism. Nationalism, excessive pride in one 's country, caused Hitler and the Nazi Party to seem attractive because it was almost second nature. Germans ' hearts burst with pride and "supreme love of their fatherland..." (doc 2). The people of Germany loved their country, and therefore, loved their leader. They were willing to drop everything and fight for Germany if their leader ordered them to.
Germany’s leader, Adolf Hitler, was the Fuhrer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. Before he became their leader he was a politician who later became the leader of the Nazi Party. He was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria on April 20th, 1889, and he died on April 30th, 1945. He once said, “He alone, who gains youth, gains the
