On November 18th of 1918, Germany, a member of the Central Powers, surrendered unconditionally to the allies. World War I had ended with a total of 37 million casualties, including 9 million dead combatants. German propaganda had not prepared that nation for defeat, and its suddenness resulted in a sense of injured German national pride. Following the defeat of Germany in World War I and in the midst of a great worldwide depression, both the social and political climates were prime for a dictator such as Adolf Hitler to rise to power. A year later, in June of 1919, the leaders of the Allies met at the Palace of Versailles to decide on the peace settlement after World War I. The treaty, which ...

Holocaust The Destruction Process - 1,012 words
During the period from the early 1930's to the mid 40's, the Jews in Germany, Poland, and throughout Europe faced intense discrimination from the Nazis. Starting with boycotts and pogroms, the Nazis proceeded to institute legislation against the Jews with the Nuremberg Laws. Institution of ghettos began in the late 1930's.

German Nationalism - 1,301 words
Adolf Hitler was not the first man to drastically implement a strong nationalistic country. However, he was the first to implement a distinct form of nationalism, which imbedded highly raciest overtones for the everlasting purification of an Aryan Germany.

In short, the Bundische youth carried nationalistic ideals, which were anti-liberal, anti-Semetic and Volkish, these were the three main characteristics of Hitlers platform for a nationalistic Germany.

Hitler, therefore, implemented a program of strenuous maximization of armaments which, in due course, would lead to his program of nationalization around the globe. What must guide us constantly today, Hitler declared, is the fundamental insight that the regaining of lost imperial territories is primarily a question of regaining the political independence and power of the motherland. He stated that such a task can not be solved by a parliament, by prayers, or by negotiations before the League of Nations, but onl ...

Jesus Or Hitler - 1,464 words
Anti-Semitism was widespread in Europe at the time Hitler came to power. Much of this anti-Semitism was rooted, first, in religious beliefs that arose more than 1500 years before Hitler came to power, and second, on political beliefs, often cynically exploited for political gain. Though it was not accepted by everyone, this existing anti-Semitism was common and provided a receptive audience for Hitler's anti-Semitic claims. Hitler did not just exploit the existing anti-Semitism in Germany; he changed it and built on it until it became an all-consuming obsession both for himself and for the rest of the National Socialist leadership. The most significant difference between traditional anti-Sem ...

Hitler - 1,375 words
The inevitability of anything can logically be subverted by saying that people have free will. In the case of Hitler and the reasons and consequences of his getting in to power because of the Weimar Constitution is simply not true because the people of Germany also have free will which means they can choose to either follow the Constitution or not. No Constitution could work unless people work with it, and within it. When the economy was failing, the people looked for a new solution. Hitler did come into power legitimately with the peoples' will. And when Hitler gets into power Hindenburg and the conservatives allow him to abuse his power. Of all the reasons, the least at fault is the consti ...

Hitler Yourth - 1,405 words
The Hitler Youth movement was an essential element of Hitlers plan, which grew and fell with the Third Reich. Although in the early 1930s the movement had great purpose, to bring Hitler to power, esprit de corps declined with the boredom of drill regimented activities and increased military focus. However, the coming of war and eagerness to defend the Fuhrer showed that the Hitler Youth was ultimately successful. The Hitler Youth undoubtedly played a key role in the overall plan for the Third Reich.

Adolf Hitler - 1,041 words
Adolf Hitler was born in Austria on April 20, 1889. He created a lot of myths around his early life in order to show that he was destined for greatness. In fact, there was nothing very extraordinary about his background. He was the son of a minor customs official and peasant girl. He was a poor student, and never completed high school. He also applied for admission to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna but was rejected for lack of talent. The young Hitler thought of himself as a misunderstood artist, a lonely genius among petty people. After the sudden death of his mother it began the most miserable and lonely five years of his life.
