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.
As Hitler started to do more and more of the Nazi Party speeches, they became more popular and more and more people came to listen to him. He presented himself very strong and a symbol of hope for them. He was shown to be very articulate to the German Public which made him seem driven and that he knew what he was doing. This made him like a messiah figure. Hitler gave the Nazi Party a figure of authority, determination, dignity and dominance.
They were beginning to doubt that Germany had any pride left. Historian R.Landau writes in his book (The Nazi Holocaust) that the ‘Nazi party was appealing’. This demonstrates that Hitler and the Nazis were a modern and plausible option for the public. Many of the middle class and other highly regarded sections of society were also drawn to the Nazi’s. Therefore, strengthening Landau’s view and the above argument that Hitler became leader of Germany as he was leader of the most popular parties.
By convincing Hindenburg that there was a large communist threat the country was put into a state of emergency and, with Hindenburg’s backing, Hitler was allowed to pass decrees to govern Germany anyway he liked, with the financial backing of krupp and bosch etc, which in this case is fortunate for the question at hand. Consequently this is why I believe it was the most important event to dictatorship because it was the “spark” that allowed any other event to happen and without it democracy may have just struggled on. One of these events was the election in 1933. Now Hitler had the power to convince Hindenburg to allow him
Propaganda was used frequently all around Germany during the time of Hitler and was effective in promoting Hitler as the ideal ruler for Germany. Nazi propaganda posters always showed Hitler in a good light which appealed to the German people. The first example shows young Aryan German boy looking upwards. The poster also features Hitler looking in the same direction, which suggests that he understands and supports the best interests of the youth. The caption of the poster translates to “The Hitler youth is born”, and the fact that an Aryan child is chosen to be shown is key.
'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.
Comparison between Hitler and Stalin Similarities: • Both were very skilled at using propaganda • Both were amoral • Both wanted to restore power to their countries Hitler and Stalin each used propaganda as their tool to further their ideas and help them gain the backing of the people in their countries. The form of propaganda that Hitler used, and was successful in using, was his words. Hitler made many speeches, but the one speech that was a famous one, was his final speech at his trial for treason. Stalin was also an avid speech maker and won many supporters from his speeches. Another form of propaganda that they used was through photographs.
How important was the leadership of Adolf Hitler in the rise of the Nazis to power in Germany by 1933? The National Socialist German Worker’s Party (Nazis) came to power under the leadership of Adolf Hitler in January 1933. This followed four years of economic and political instability in Germany as a result of the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and ensuing world depression. There are many reasons for the Nazi rise to power such as charismatic personality of their leader, the widespread appeal of their policies, their effective use of propaganda and modern electioneering strategies, and the success of their parliamentary organisation. One also needs to take into account the weaknesses of their democratic government of the Weimar Republic and its failure to deal with the problems of the day.
The German’s got the British and French to split, this way it will make work easier for the German’s. The German’s were quick on the bombadert as they started around 4:30 am with as many as 6,000 German artillery pieces. The British disobeyed and laughed at their officers, they were not serious and this helped the German’s a lot because they will have the chance for reinforcement when they want to. The British and French were enemies and their commanders didn’t understand each other, this kept the Ludendorff offensive strong as they had more time to prepare for the war. They were very close because in the first 5 days they were doing so well.
There were many attributes that aided Hitler in his rise to power. Since the First World War in 1914 Germany’s government had been very unstable, and of course was not helped by the 1919 Treaty of Versailles. Due to the reparations evoked by the treaty and the cost of war, Germany experienced hyperinflation that was only solved in 1924 with a series of loans from America. Just as Germany’s economy was improving the Wall Street crash occurred in 1929 where America requested repayment of all their loans. These events created the perfect conditions for a new radical party to rise to power: The Nazis.
