In 1924 the stabilizing inflation rate meant Speer could transfer to the more esteemed Munich Institute of Technology and a year following that he transferred to Berlin Institute of Technology. It was there that he was under the tutelage of Heinrich Tessenow, whom he held in great regard, as he respected and agreed with Tessenow’s philosophies about architectural simplicity – modest forms of architecture and natural building materials. After passing his exams in 1927, Speer became Tessenow’s assistant, and was involved in teaching seminar classes three days a week. Although Speer claims “I was allergic to any political commitments” the students of Tessenow (who never agreed with Nazism himself) apparently coaxed him into attending a Nazi Party rally in a Berlin beer-hall on 5th December 1930. When Hitler entered the hall he was greeted by the applauding students.
Describe the rise to prominence of the personality you have studied Albert Speer’s rise to prominence was compounded by numerous significant events including his early work for the Nazi Party, followed by his appointment of Reich Architect and his further architectural works under this title such as the Paris Fair and German Project. Speer then reached his prominence of power when he was appointed Armaments Minister. Speer’s rise to prominence initially began with his joining of the Nazi Party in 1931. From this moment Speer’s recognition within the Nazi Party only amplified, all beginning with his first job as the Party’s driver. Through this job Speer met Dr Goebbels, who organised Speer’s first architect job; the renovation of the Party’s headquarters in Berlin.
Despite this, by the following spring, the hyperinflation crisis had eased and Speer was able to transfer to the institute of technology in Munich and then again on to one in Berlin. It was here that Speer met professor Tessenow, who despite voicing his opposition to Nazism, his teachings in fact paralleled much of the Nazis nationalistic ideology. After graduating in 1927, Speer became Tessenow’s assistant and worked very closely with him. Despite being surrounded with negative attitudes towards the Nazi party, Speer was persuaded to attend a Nazi party rally on December 4th 1930. It was here where Speer first came under the powerful influence of Adolf Hitler.
As a ruler, Adolf Hitler of the Nazi party had numerous successes but he also had he fair share of failures. At the beginning of World War II, Hitler was seen as a savior to the German nation because of his oratory skills, appeal to the people and his successes. One of his first successes came when he fulfilled his promises to the German people and reversed the Treaty of Versailles. After the death of Hindenburg in 1934, Hitler was seen as the successor. The German public saw Hitler as god-like with his vast power and glorifying the German race as being the “master race.” When he finally reversed the power of the Treaty of Versailles and rebuilt Germany’s armed forces, the German nation basically did as he told them to do.
He was raised in a middle-class Catholic family in a region called Sudetenland. His father owned a farm-machinery plant and Oskar attended a German grammar school and studied engineering to prepare him to take over the family business and follow in his father’s footsteps (Vashem). Due to the poor state of the economy, and as a result of Oskar Schindler’s carefree lifestyle, the family business was lost to bankruptcy (Gordeeva; Karesh). Always looking for an opportunity to make money, he began supporting the Nazi Party and developed relationships with key Nazi officers (Karesh). These relationships enabled him to take advantage of the German occupation program to “’Aryanize’ and ‘Germanize’ Jewish-owned and Polish-owned business…” (Crowe).
To say Oliver Evans was a great American innovator would be like saying Mt. Everest was a mountain, true but only half the story. Oliver Evans was a bright and determined man; he worked hard, believed in himself and refused to be held down by what others might think of him or his ideas. Evans showed interest in engineering very early on, as a teenager he apprenticed himself to a wheelwright and wagon maker while studying math and science on the side. That was until a casual conversation with his brother opened his eyes to what he considered a new source of power.
Albert Speer, one of Adolf Hitlers closest companions, best friend and Architect of the Third Reich played a very significant role in regards to the Reich. Some even suggesting that he was second in charge, Speer began Architecture in 1927 after studying at a few institutions before completing his degree in Berlin. Arguably the most significant moment in Albert Speer’s career was when he was appointed “Minister For Armaments and Munitions”. Up until February 1942 Speer denied all involvement with the governance of the Third Reich, he was just Architect in a private practice with a client, friend and neighbour named Adolf Hitler. He was thrown into government on the 7th of February when the former “Minister of Armaments and Munitions”, Dr Fritz Todt, died in an plane crash.
Speer made an important connection through this work – Karl Hanke, a Nazi District Leader in West Berlin. It was Karl Hanke who offered Speer his early redecoration work for the Nazi Party. His early success with redecoration jobs led to more opportunities with the Nazi Party. Soon he was asked to take on jobs for high-ranking Nazi’s. In the summer of 1932 he was asked to redecorate Goebbels’ headquarters.
'Popular Support For Hitler Was the Most Important Reason Why he Became Chancellor In January 1993' How Far do You Agree With This Statement? Hitler became Chancellor in January 1933, I believe that it the statement is partially true, Hitler was a clever man and with the aid of Joseph Goebbels he released many campaigns and propaganda throughout Germany spreading the Nazi's message and image getting people to vote for them. Not only that but with the Nazi's policies which some of them were aimed at particular groups like the nationalists or old age citizens, this too gained support. However it wasn't just popular support which got Hitler into power, the two previous chancellors in the Reichstag who were voted off helped as Hindenburg had no option but to make Hitler into the new Chancellor. My first point is how Goebbels used propaganda to aid Hitler.
Wenzel Lowe Period 3 Erwin Schrodinger Erwin Schrodinger was a physicist known for winning a Nobel Peace Prize from his wave equation and his paradox Schrodinger's Cat. Though not as famous as other scientists such as Nikola Tesla or Albert Einstein, he still proved to be a large contributor to the theoretical world of physics and science. On August 12, 1887 in Vienna, Austria, a chemistry professor birthed a soon to be known physicist, Erwin Schrodinger. As he grew, he was home-schooled by his parents and several tutors, stopping at the age of 11. Seeing that Schrodinger was intellectual, he went to a university preparatory school.
