It was in this period that Bonhoeffer produced his book “The Cost of Discipleship” and that Bonhoeffer first became widely known. In 1938, his brother-in-law, Hans von Dohnanyi, introduced him to the group seeking to Overthrow Hitler. Bonhoeffer continued his work for the resistance movement under the cover of his employment in Germany's Military Intelligence Department, which was a centre of the resistance. In 1942 he flew to Sweden to tell British government the conspirators' proposals for a peace; these proposals were unfortunately rejected. Bonhoeffer was arrested on April 5, 1943, and imprisoned in Berlin.
Hitler approved the finished result, however Goebbels did not like its simplicity and had it redecorated.

The pair refurbished the chancellery building in Berlin. During this event Speer and Hitler became close friends and when Troost died in 1934, Speer filled his position as the Party’s Chief Architect.

Albert Speer – Opinion Speech Albert Speer, architect of the third Reich, minister of Armaments, its undoubted that he was a man of great potential & caused great effect during Hitler’s reign & Germany’s ongoing war effort. Though one question still remains, that is, was he honest at the Nuremburg Trials in 1945? Was Speer really honest, when he said that he knew nothing of the holocaust & Nazi death camps? It was at the age of 26 in 1931, in an address to the students of Berlin University that Speer first saw Hitler. Speer admitted he was carried away by Hitler’s unmatched speaking prowess, unequivocal belief in Nazi ideology & the idea of a restored Germany.
This project would be based on the point of view of the film and the research of history in order to find out if this film is completely accurate and find out if the directors left something behind. The Swing Kids Movement took in place Germany around the 1930s. The youth movement in Germany started years before Hitler showed up on the scene. “It began in the 1890’s and was known as the Wandervogel, a male-only movement featuring a back-to-nature theme” (The History Place) (The Nazification of Germany Society).

The incident of the bread shows parallels to what Zusak’s mother witnessed and told him about in her stories. The author drew inspiration from his parents’ stories from living through Nazi Germany.

Then he moved to Orleans, France, to study law. In 1531 Calvin returned to Paris with his law degree. At this time Protestant opposition to the church was growing. The ideas of Martin Luther concerning the saving of one's soul by faith alone were becoming popular in the city, and Calvin became involved in the movement for church reform. In January 1534 he fled Paris during a crackdown on Protestants and went to Angouleme, France, where he began writing down a full description of his beliefs.
German writer Heinrich Böll’s (1917-1985) story “Stranger, Bear Word to the Spartans We…” was written in the wake of World War II in 1950. Böll’s anti-war stance and experience as a soldier informed his critical look at the discrepancy between the ideals presented in German schools and the way they were destroyed by Nazism. The story is about a disoriented soldier trying to find his bearings and ultimately closure after being badly wounded on the front. The story is set in a school converted to a makeshift hospital in the city of Bendorf during World War II. The story is presented in a first person point of view, but the narrative stance is actually subjective because the narrator exhibits no self-pity in this critique of war.
‘The Wave’- Analytical Exposition Ben Ross, a history teacher at Gordon State High, conducted an experiment aimed at explaining why ordinary people in Hitler’s Germany did not speak of the wrongs that were taking place in their society during that period. This experiment was called “The Wave”, and involved using his history student’s as test subjects. In the experiment, Ben Ross adopted similar techniques used by Hitler to control people’s thinking and behaviour. This essay will explore how his students’ reaction to the experiment showed possible reasons for the Nazis to gain control of people’s thinking and behaviour. This will be discussed in the following paragraphs.
