Fake news (propaganda) can be very dangerous. An example of propaganda is when the US dropped leaflets over Iraq and told people that Saddam Hussein was responsible for the suffering. Also, take the Holocaust for an example people were blind sighted by lies and propaganda from Hitler which caused 7.6 million lives. We can change these events from repeating by not voting for corrupt people. If nobody believed in Hitler 's lies we could have been a stronger community and a stronger nation overall.
Throughout ww2 propaganda seemed to be the main thing that got into everybody 's head. It changed the way that they thought about other countries and the way that they thought about their own country. Hitler did a great job at using propaganda to control the minds of his country, but he didnt use it for good. It wasn 't just in Germany that propaganda was used. It was used it just about every country but mainly in Britain, France and America.
After becoming dictator, Hitler made laws against Jews; he boycotted Jewish goods, banned Jewish and non-Jewish German marriage, excluded Jews from state service and schooling, made them carry around identity cards, banned Jewish doctors from treating non-Jewish patients, and banned them from many public places. When violence against the Jews
Now there were some Germans who opposed to the Holocaust, that were afraid to speak out because Hitler was so powerful at the time. Afraid of what might happen to them and their families if they did. On the other hand it was over 10,000 Germans involved in orchestrating the massive genocide against the Jews, which was a very large amount. Hitler used very untrue things about the Jews to get people to agree and follow along. Most of the things Hitler accused the Jews of were very false.
This was not only because anyone could be seen as a communist, but anyone could report others and get them taken away. The drawback from snitching was it affiliated you with a communist and got you arrested as well. The population caught on quickly and “Anti-Nazi political and union workers either fled germany or faced long-term confinement in a concentration camp”(Political Prisoners). Often those not lucky or resourceful enough to escape imprisonment, would conform with the Nazis in order to save themselves. Since anyone to stand against the government would be taken away, it shows that political prisoners were the first in Nazi camps.
History has proven this. Take a look at Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Books used to be burned all the time, and the reason for this so that no one would have their own opinion, no one would share their thoughts, but instead watch all the Nazi rallies and Hitler’s propaganda speeches, and repeat everything that was said and consider it your own opinion. As Joseph Brodsky, one of my favourite Russian poets once stated “The surest defense against evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking” – all of this comes from nothing else but books. “A mind needs books as a sword needs
He blamed the Jews that they did not fight for them, but it wasn’t true. It became a Nazi theme propaganda. Many of the German Jews fought the battle. The Germans were so humiliated and Hitler joined the He then joined the National Socialist workers party (Nazi party), which was for a group of young men. Germany had to get rid of their emperor.
Hitler also changed the jewish religion by killing jews and making them look bad and also causing them to switch religions by causing fear into them. Hitler also changed how Germans and Swastikas are looked at because of all of WWII and Killing jews in many countries that were in Nazi or German control. Adolf Hitler made steps to change Germany and here are some ways. Why did Adolf Hitler make Jewish people non-citizens? The reason why he did not
This applies to Hitler because he was both feared and loved by many. Germany was not in good shape after WWI and when Hitler came and assured the people recovery, they could not refuse. In the end Hitler brought down the unemployment in Germany from 7 million to only 1 million in 12 months. Hitler knew how he could maintain his leadership, because one thing he knew was that he was feared by his enemies/opponents. Because of the great power that Hitler had, plenty of his political opponents would be commanded to be scared away or executed.
Jehovah Witnesses were well known in Nazi Germany for not straying from the words of Jehovah. This was very threatening to Hitler, as they refused to sign documents of loyalty to the Third Reich. This caused them to be treated like ‘dangerous’ traitors to Hitler and be sent to camps. People of Polish Descent Other than Jewish people, Hitler was especially against Poles, infamously saying to kill "without pity or mercy, all men, women, and children of Polish descent or language. Only in this way can we obtain the lebensraum [perfect living space] we need," to his army.
At this camp the prisoners were made up of people who opposed the new regime and could cause problems down the road for Hitler?s plan. The Jewish people who owned local shops and businesses slowly lost business because no one wanted to be seen giving business to the hated race.? The Law of Reestablishment of the Professional Civil Service was enacted and this stated Jews with public jobs are to be dismissed. Continuing with giving Jews no rights or place in society is the burning of books that were written by Jewish authors. This took place in public to show how serious the Nazi party was about humiliating and denying any rights to the Jewish population.
“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
To illustrate, the Dutch government, under the influence of “(the Nazis,) forced (Jews) out of business. (They) had to wear yellow stars(,) turn in their bike(s, and) couldn’t go to… Dutch school(s) anymore. (They) couldn’t go to the movies or ride in a streetcar and a million other things.” Nazi policies had inflicted a social segregation against Jews because they were not seen as equals in society. This was a complete injustice against them but at the time, society was so oblivious to the suffering they endured. Today, their accounts have shaped our perspectives of the event so much because we have seen their point of view and our society thinks very differently than society did then.
With his leadership powers “weakened” it is believed that “those who were responsible for the Holocaust’s initiation (namely other high-ranking officials within the Nazi Party) acted independently of Hitler” (Draper, 1999, p.14). This also brings into light the term ‘Cumulative radicalization’. Using cumulative radicalization is an easy way of explaining how over time, the Nazis persuaded many of the German people to take ever more extreme positions against Jews, and other persecuted groups, until the Holocaust became possible. It is also stated in the article ‘Law, justice, and Holocaust”, “less known are the contributions of “ordinary” people—doctors, lawyers, teachers, civil servants, officers, and other professionals throughout German society—whose individual actions, when taken together, resulted in dire consequences. Put simply, the Holocaust could not have happened without them”.
The Nazis saw themselves as superior and felt as though other races or ethnicities did not deserve to coexist. In Adolf Hitler’s last will and political testament, which was dictated in a bunker in German territory, he blamed the war on “International Jewry and its helpers.” He strongly pleaded with the German people to “follow the strict observance of the racial laws and with merciless resistance against the universal poisoners of all peoples.” Hitler was obviously disturbed and the next day, he committed suicide (“The Holocaust”). The two genocidal events convey the thought of racial dominance and viewing the victims as less human than that of the hostile party. In Rwanda, the Hutus were responsible for committing the majority of the atrocities as they killed thousands and systematically raped women and young girls (O’Donnell 3). To Adolf Hitler, the Jewish people were an inferior race, “an alien threat to German racial purity and community”(“The Holocaust”).
