The whole program to rebuild Germany was based on the idea that Germany had been betrayed and that the only way for Germany to avenge itself upon its enemies and put an end to the conflict that had begun in 1914 was through military action. (Nelson) Through the bad state of the country, the Nazis were able to use propaganda that influenced the German people to believe that it was right to punish the groups who they believed were to blame for their
After Germany lost World War I, it was in a national state of humiliation. Their economy was in the drain, and they had their hands full paying for the reparations from the war. Then a man named Adolf Hitler rose to the position of Chancellor and realized his potential to inspire people to follow. Hitler promised the people of Germany a new age; an age of prosperity with the country back as a superpower in Europe. Hitler had a vision, and this vision was that not only the country be dominant in a political sense, but that his ‘perfect race’, the ‘Aryans,’ would be dominant in a cultural sense. His steps to achieving his goal came in the form of the Holocaust. The most well known victims of the Holocaust were of course, the Jews.
The Nazis Party ruled Germany through a method of government called Tolitarism. Hitler joined this group as the leader the year it started. He ran a dictatorship. After Germany's defeat in World War II, this party was outlawed and many of the top officials were convicted of war crimes, such as being convicted for murder of six million European Jews during the Nazi ruling. The Nazis came to power because of depression and high unemployment. Under this rule, all forms of other governments were banned. If you believed in another government, you would be sent off to a concentration camp. At the concentration camps, hours of hard labor and would not be fed that much, if at all. Many kids would be separated from their families and would not know how they were doing it if they were living. Also Hitler removed Germany from League of Nations in 1933 (Nazi Party) .
Adolph Hitler became head of Germany’s National Socialists Party in July of 1921. By 1933 the once unknown Hitler was given dictatorial power. As his power grew the new dictator grew more restrictive and power hungry. Books were burned, Jewish-owned businesses were boycotted, the Nazi Party was made the only party, and concentration camps were opened, all in the first year of Hitler’s
One thing which remained the same for almost all Germans was the guilt complex of possibly stopping the horrific atrocities committed by the Reich if enough of them had stood up. Already, “Germany’s economy was in a mess when Hitler was elected Chancellor in January 1933” (Trueman). In other words, Hitler had fed off of Germany’s economy which was already collapsing at the seams. Yet the fact remained that they had all been blinded by the scapegoats they were given to what was really happening. Hitler concealed the truth of his tyranny and informed Germany that “the Jews were the reason for the inner poisoning of Germany and that they had stolen the victory from Germany” (Hall). However, the event was also beneficial as “Germany has largely lost its connection to the generation of perpetrators” and anti semitism was condemned where less than twenty years ago it had been predominant among most of Europe (Beste). The Germans had lost two wars now in which they had been led by a single, dictatorial authority figure. This, ultimately, alienated them from authoritarian governments and began to lead them into democracy's
The Great Depression in the 1930 's hit the whole nation hard. From Germany 's perspective, the economic fall hit them the hardest out of everyone. This economic depression did not help the subtle humiliation they had from losing the war 15 years prior. If anything, this worsened Germany 's state, making them lack self-confidence and become a very weak government. "This gave way for a new leader to arise into power, who everyone knows as Adolf Hitler and his party was the National Socialist German Worker 's Party, or Nazi Party." (Hitler Comes to Power) Hitler had an advantage on Germany and wining them over, the advantage being that the Germans were vulnerable. He was a very powerful speaker and he was compelling to many of the people because he spoke with the desperation for change. Adolf promised the people a new life and a better Germany. The Nazi Party 's rise to power was quick and record breaking. "They would on average win 3% of the vote 8 years
of the Nazi's power began when the hateful man, Adolf Hitler, came to be dictator of Germany in 1933. He was named chancellor by President Paul von Hirdenburg. Hitler took the chancellor's oath on January 30,and that night Nazis celebrated the victory with spirited torchlight parades in Berlin. All of the
After World War I occurred, many Germans were still upset. Germany was burdened with many war reparations that they couldn’t pay. Many of these upset Germans helped to form the Nazi party- or the National Socialist German Worker’s Party (“Nazi”). They called for strong militarism, nationalism, and wanted to expand Germany’s
January 30, 1933 to May 8, 1945. Hitler became Germany’s chancellor when it first started and
Boys were taught about military service and girls about housekeeping. Both did camping and other activities to unite with others and serve Germany together. Parents were encouraged to have many children such that more youths could join this scheme. Secondly Germans were also brainwashed into discrimination against Jews and other minorities via the media such that the atrocities against them were justified. They also, through broadcasts and newspapers (heavily censored by Nazis), rallies and march parties like the annual Nuremberg rally, developed pro-Nazi sentiments. Joseph Goebbels, Minister for Enlightenment & Propaganda, placed loudspeakers everywhere such that Germans all heard Hitler's speeches and controlled all forms of art. Hitler also promised law and order unlike in Bolshevism, economic expansion and a Greater Germany' instead of one undermined by the Treaty of Versailles (he tore it up). Germans also took pride in the latest technological advancements in Germany and their state-of-the-art stadium for the 1936 Olympics, where they enjoyed a sterling performance, which Goebbels used to prove the notion of Aryan superiority. Thirdly religion was also controlled with all churches branching out from one central Reich Church that revered Nazi policies. Priests and nuns who disagreed were imprisoned. Hitler even had the audacity to suggest an alternative
Adolph Hitler rose to power as Chancellor of Germany on January 30th, 1933 after being reluctantly selected by Paul von
After the loss of World War 1, Germany was crippled and severely punished. During the 1920’s, Adolf Hitler (WW1 veteran) started spouting about these bizarre ideas. Germany was desperate; he seemed like their only hope to get out of this mess. People took to Hitler because Hitler assured them he would get them out of debt, which he successfully did. The Nazi party was then formed and gained a mass amount of popularity amongst the German population. The Nazi party at first received only 3% of the vote at the Reichstag in 1924, and in the 1932 elections; Hitler received 33%, more than anyone else and was the new Chancellor of Germany. The German people were cheerful; they believed Hitler their savior (“Hitler Comes to Power. Ushmm.org”).
The ease with which Hitler and the Nazis were able to consolidate their power by August 1934, was due to the combination of luck, manipulation of legal procedures and a willingness to be uterly ruthless. The Nazi position was extremly unstable and in shaky circumstances during January 193. However, after the events and actions taken to consolidate their power the Nazis grew stronger and became invulnerable for the time they were in power.
