An Overview of Hitler’s Nazi Germany

One of the most hated names of the 20th Century was Adolf Hitler. His role as dictator of Germany and his harsh treatment of Jews led to the deaths of millions of people during World War II. His leadership skills and his ability as a speaker appealed to the German people who were in a poor economic state following World War I. His political career began as Chancellor of Germany. Later he became the Fuhrer or leader of Germany and the founder of the Nazi Party. Hitler’s time as leader of Germany left the entire world with scars that took many years to heal. Adolf Hitler’s dictatorship was based on violence and hatred of certain races and minorities. He enforced his ideas using a secret police force known as the Gestapo. He formed concentration camps for those Germans who wouldn’t follow his rules as well as to murder millions of Jews. His success in World War II was short and when it became evident that his government would fail, he committed suicide. Adolf Hitler was born in Austria in a small town close to the German border. His father was a strict Catholic man who was very demanding of young Hitler. This strict way of life was very common at this time. As a young Catholic, Hitler sang in the choir and served as an altar boy. He did not practice the Catholic faith as an adult but considered himself a Christian. His hatred of Jews began as a young boy. Because of the political movements of the time that involved several Jewish leaders, Hitler blamed the Jews for the economic and social problems his family lived through. He considered the Jews to be enemies of the “Aryan race”. He thought that the “Aryan race “was superior to all other races. Hitler’s beginning school years were very successful. However, upon reaching high school, he refused to work hard and made failing grades. His new interest was painting. After…...

Hitler was a very smart man and knew exactly who to target. Which is why he chose these young men that were very hungry for power and dominance. Also since Hitler was such a powerful figure the young men would easily follow his command. Hitler asked them to join the group and they young uneducated men became obedient because of the commands from Hitler. Hitler spoke to the young men’s emotions, which stirred them, and helps convince them to join the group. Once the group was together the individual thinking was thrown out and they used groupthink. This is one reason why normal individuals joined Hilter and continued to terrorize other people. They followed the will of the group and it continued to get worse as the groups got larger and the Nazi party included many men....

Possibility and Actuality…

...actuality as you know yourself to be in possibility”. I have always said it a bit different: maybe that if I had grown up in Hilter’s shoes I might just be Hilter himself. We mistakenly believe that there is something fundamentally good about ourselves because we have not perpetrated any heinous or extremely violent acts over the course of our lifetime. This is not the case. Goodness is something that is not in us at all, unless we are indwelt with the power of the Holy Spirit. So the only thing that makes me good has nothing to do with myself. I am not good. If I were left to my own devices I would become the Hilter of my own life. Jesus always made the point that there is no division between the mental and physical lives, that the thought is just as bad as the action (i.e. if any man lust after a woman, if any man wants to kill his brother, etc…). In sum, if we were to be honest with ourselves we must profess that it is a force wholly separate from our corporeal body that changes us and makes us different—that if I were left to myself I would be in actuality what I already know myself to be in possibility. I know the thoughts that occupy my mind when I am not watching myself: thought of unprovoked violence, undo adultery, malice, strife, and all manner of terrible act. The only thing separating us from becoming Hilter is the thin veil of privacy that separates the mind within from the body without. It is important to be in possibility as we would imagine we should be in......

Battle of Kursk

...was 150 miles wide and 100 miles deep. German also had six commands throughout this battle while the soviets had four. The Germans had Erich Von Manstein, Hans Seidermann, Herman Hoth, Robert Ritter and Walter Model. The soviet commanders were Nikolai Fyodorovich Vatutin, Georgy Zhukov, Ivan Konev and Konstantin Rokossocsky. This battled involved four million people from both sides, 70,000 artillery guns, 23,000 tanks and 12,000 warplanes. The battle of Kursk, named operation Citadel, was originally a German attack that ended up being a soviet win. The Germans had hoped that it would weaken the Soviet offensive for that summer by stopping a large number of forces that they had anticipated would be in the Kursk salient. April 15th in 1943 Hilter order stated, “This offensive is of decisive importance. It must end in swift and decisive success. Every commander, every private soldier, must be indoctrinated with awareness of the decisive importance of this offensive. Victory at Kursk will be a beacon for the whole world.”. However while the Germans were preparing soviet partisan movement was watching and reported their information back to he soviet Army. So while Germans readied their side the soviets were already prepared for a huge counterattack. Soviet forces were heavily preparing with thousands of tanks, artillery and men all being moved to the area. The soviets were very ready for Germany to make a move. On the 5th of July of 1943, the Germans made their move to......

...would we know our heritage, or perhaps what our ancestor’s went through. I fear a world where history is not important. I personally feel that we need to remember history, learn from it and improve ourselves along with society. To have family history is a blessing in my eyes. So many adopted individuals have no information on their true heritage. To truly know the whole story of your great grand parents and their struggles, or to be able to say I am seventy five percent German and a mix of Irish and Native American, is special. History can be seen on so many different levels of our everyday lives. On a broader scope of the picture, history we can learn from it. There is no need to keep repeating the mistakes of the past. For example, Hilter as a leader. To try and remove one section of society due to religious beliefs, making everyone live in fear of having to face the gas chambers. Not accepting humans if they were not blonde and blue eyed. This was the earlier form of being a racist and stereotyping, which in today’s society it would be frowned upon and even criminal. Another great example of history is Martin Luther King, the history this man made set the direction of human rights and equality of all. We have even evolved in our criminal justice system, now instead of the hanging at the nearest tree we face a jury of our peers. History has allowed this to happen. A day in history that a large majority will remember is the stock market crashing. I have to believe......

Leadership - a Hitler

...combined with Hitler’s racial attitude toward the Jews was shared by millions of Germans. This should have been a warning to the world, but it was ignored (Gavin, 1996). After being released from prison, Hitler made a speech in which he reclaimed his position as the leader of the Nazi Party but during his speech he began making threats against the demoncratic republic and Jews. He was then banned by the government for two years against public speaking. Even though he could not speak publicly, he was reorgainizing the Nazi Party behind the scenes. Hitler realized it would be slow going for his party as the German economy was improving and the German industrialist were debt free. The United States was also investing captial in Germany. Hilter knew this time would not last and that the racial tensions were still there, only dormant and he just had to wait (Gavin, 1996). On October 29, 1929, the Wall Street stock market crashed which had worldwide effects. Companies went bankrupt, banks failed, and many lost their life’s savings. Unemployment soared duing this time, people panicked, and fear ruled. The Great Depression had now begun and Hitler was just standing by waiting for this opportunity. Hitler began making appearances and giving speeches and promising the citizens what they wanted which was work, prosperity to failed businesses, profits, social harmony, restore Germany’s glory, and to deal harshly with the Jews (Gavin, 1996). In 1933, Adolf Hitler and his followers,......

A Paradoxical Relationship

...characteristics. Her childhood personation of her father has vanished, but the idealistic view of him is still prominent. The speaker hopes for the closeness of her father despite the unequal relationship. Her tone becomes less cruel as she wishes for a connection, “At twenty I tried to die/ And get back, back to you/ I thought even the bones would do/ But they pulled me out of the sack” (58-61). When she tries to commit suicide she reconnects with the “sack” again, relating to “a bag full of God” (8). This demonstrates that she still loved him; she wanted her idealistic perception of him to be real. She uses this perception to choose the same husband as her father, “A man in black with a Meinkampf look” (65). “Meinkampf” is a book written by Hilter. This returns the domination and oppression back into the poem permanently, “And a love of the rack and the screw”. The speaker’s tone ultimately changes to an acceptance of her actual father. Her love for her father, and her husband, is now associated with brutality, contempt, and sadistic ugliness. The tone changed frequently during the poem in order to repress the love for her father, and the German inferences emphasized the “Nazi” qualities him. The poem is no longer the daughter’s attempt to reunite with and to marry the dead father; it is now the daughter’s wish to overthrow his dominance over her imagination and to “kill” him and the man who takes his place.

The Shining Critical Analysis

...family starts off by invading a hotel they have no clue about, the previous care taker Grady invades Jack’s mind into killing his family and the hotel chef Dick invades Danny’s mind and shows him the meaning of ‘The Shine’. One last point that makes the relation to the indians is that the treaty of Jack and Grady was broken when he was locked in the pantry. The staggered Calumet cans were a sign of dishonestly and it makes a lot of sense how Grady confronted Jack about not trying hard enough to kill his wife. It all comes back to the treaty broken with the settlers and the indians when John Smith betrayed all the indians after he gained their trust to survive in the new land. Next theory that made sense to me was about the nazi’s and Hilter. Geoffrey Cocks first brings up the type writer and how it is a german brand. That brings to my attention that the whole basis of Jack and his family going to the hotel in the first place was for him to be isolated and to write his novel. We can see that he spends most of his time either typing or sitting by his type writer. It was significant to the story because it started as such a pure idea and ended up as the thing that made him snap. Cocks also brings up that the type writer is white at first and changes color to a dark grey by the end of the movie, that to me symbolizes again the purity of why he decided to stay at the hotel at first to his new mission. I agree with this theory because of how much red is put into this film;the......

Comparion of Roosevelt and Hilter

...Essay 101 Perhaps two of the most influential people in their countries at the time, Adolf Hitler and Franklin Delano Roosevelt were practically opposites. Hilter came from a poor background whereas Roosevelt came from a fairly well off family. They did however, share many commonalities. Their rises to power were for the most part, based on their abilities to effectively communicate their messages to the masses. Born to a minor customs official and a peasant girl, Hitler never completed high school. When he applied to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he was rejected due to his lack of talent. He served in the Bavarian army during the First World War, and proved himself to be a dedicated, courageous soldier. Ironically, he was never promoted beyond Private First Class because his superiors thought him lacking in leadership qualities. Hitler joined the nationalist German Workers' party which was later renamed the National Socialist German Workers' (Nazi) party and in November 1923 he lead an uprising against the postwar Weimar Republic. However, his plan collapse as a result of his lack of military support. He was served 8 months in jail and in December of 1924, he began to rebuild his party again. When the Great Depression struck in 1929, his explanation of it as a Jewish-Communist plot was accepted by many Germans. Promising a strong Germany, jobs, and national glory, he attracted millions of voters. Nazi representation in the Reichstag (parliament) rose from 12......

Hilter

...Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was an Austrian-born German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party (NSDAP), Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer ("leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. He was effectively dictator of Nazi Germany, and was a central figure of World War II in Europe and the Holocaust. Hitler was a decorated veteran of World War I. He joined the precursor of the NSDAP, the German Workers' Party, in 1919 and became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923, he attempted a coup in Munich to seize power. The failed coup resulted in Hitler's imprisonment, during which time he dictated his autobiography and political manifesto Mein Kampf ("My Struggle"). After his release in 1924, Hitler gained popular support by attacking the Treaty of Versailles and promoting Pan-Germanism, anti-Semitism, and anti-communism with charismatic oratory and Nazi propaganda. Hitler frequently denounced international capitalism and communism as being part of a Jewish conspiracy. Hitler's Nazi Party became the largest elected party in the German Reichstag, leading to his appointment as chancellor in 1933. Following fresh elections won by his coalition, the Reichstag passed the Enabling Act, which began the process of transforming the Weimar Republic into Nazi Germany, a one-party dictatorship based on the totalitarian and autocratic ideology of National Socialism. Hitler aimed to eliminate Jews from Germany and establish a New Order to counter......

Social Influences on Behavior

...another individual or with a group” (Stavrositu 2011). Social Behaviors There are various types of social behaviors that people exhibit depending on the influences around us. These influences can be conformity, the act of matching our attitude, beliefs and behaviors with a group of people. Conformity is when we would adapt what the culture deems normal and include that into our daily lives even when alone. Peer pressure is the influence put on us by a peer group or any individual to change our attitude, beliefs, or behaviors. Peer pressure is most common in children and the influences they are under at school. There is also obedience which is where a person will yield to instructions or orders from authority. Obedience was used by Hilter to get the Nazi’s to kill innocent people; it was considered the norm to follow orders. Leadership is a social influence in which a person is able to recruit the support of others in completing a task. We often see this in the work environment when we are asked to complete special projects, a leader must first be chosen and they need to find others to assist. These are just a few examples of the many social influence that we encounter each and every day of our lives. Peer Pressure As talked about previously, peer pressure is the influence on an individual by a group or another individual. Throughout our lives we will encounter many social influences, but peer pressure may be the most important. We all encounter various forms......

Leaders Through History

...expanded their power and leadership. Napoleon and Adolf Hitler first started with small crowds in order to deliver their message of how to make their society a better place. As Napoleon used to speak at the farmhouse and Hitler at the pub, they both had their speeches around small crowds at first and the crowd began to enlarge as they spoke of what the people/animals wanted to hear about how to become a better society. Although both spoke what the people wanted to hear, yet there were some protesters. As Napoleon and Hiler grew to have more supporters, they also gained protection for themselves. In their cases, Napoleon had gained the seven dogs protection and loyalty, and Hitler had gained the army's protection and trust. Napoleon and Hilter had gained protection, yet they could not allow protesters to ruin their image to other people. In order to gain all people's attention and support, they both exiled whoever had protested against them. In Napoleon's case, he exiled Snowball, Boxer, and others in order to make the farming system work better. Yet Hitler had committed mass genocide to create a perfect race. In conclusion, we can see the similarities between Napoleon and Adolf Hitler in gaining power and leadership through gaining people's attention....

1940s

...the vegetables consumed on the home front. With WWII ending in 1945 the US emerged from the war as a world superpower. With all of the men returning home, the baby boom was formed, which is still having repercussions on American society today. After the war ended, Americans learned the extent of the Holocaust. Realization of the power of prejudice helped lead to Civil Rights reforms over the next 3 decades. The Servicemen’s Readjustment Act, also known as the GI Bill of Rights, entitled returning soldiers to a college education. In 1949, three times as many college degrees were conferred as in 1940. College became available to the capable, rather than the privileged few. With education becoming more accessible in our country, in Germany Hilter was eliminating artists whose ideals didn’t agree with his. Many of the artists immigrated to the US, where they had a huge effect on American artists. To show raw emotions, art became more abstract. Abstract expressionism was chaotic and shocking in an attempt to maintain humanity in the face of insanity. Influential artists of this movement were Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, Lee Krasner, Hans Hoffman, and many more. In architect, non-essentials were eliminated, and simplicity became the key element. Many modern glass and steel office buildings began to rise after the war had surpassed. The average home was a one level ranch house, a collection of previously unaffordable appliances surrounded by minimal living space. The family lawn......

World War II has often been described as a continuation of World War I. Certainly the fighting that began, pitted many of the same counties against each other. By the time the war was over it had reshaped planetary history in ways unimaginable. The following image is a picture of the swastika. The swastika was the official symbol of the Nazi party and is sometimes used by the modern Neo- Nazis. [pic] The Nazi party was lead by Adolf Hilter. Hitler is considered one of the most evil men to ever walk this planet. He is held responsible for the holocaust. Recent history has rendered the word “holocaust” as a wholesale destruction and loss of life. In this case, The willful devastation of the Jewish people by the most inhuman methods ever devised. The Jewish people that meet there demise at the hands of the Nazi party were considerd non- combatatans.

The Nazi party did not invent concentration camps and death camps but there camps were quite different than most. They projected an inhuman barberism upon anyone entering these camps.
