I believe Hitler came into power at a time where Germany’s economy was in sheer chaos, and people weren’t sure where to turn to fix it. Mussolini also came into power at a time where Italy’s economy was failing. People in both countries did not know what to do in order to fix the economic situation, so they allowed both Hitler and Mussolini to take power practically legally. Paul Valery says “we hope vaguely, we dread precisely; our fears are
Overall I think that the building of the Berlin Wall could actually have had a more positive effect. On the one hand it may be argued that the results of building the wall were mainly negative as it led to a great deal of tension between the two sides. The wall separated many families and friends and this persuaded Willy Brandt to do a demonstration in response. Due to the uncertainty of whether they could be anything to follow military forces were strengthened in the FRG. In 1961 USA sent an additional 40,000 soldiers to Europe, the majority to West Berlin.
A particularly good example of this was Germany when USA pumped a lot of resources into their area. The Berlin Blockade showed the contrast between East and West and it also exemplified the vast amount of money that was being put in by the West to build Germany back up. They had also been able to oversee the establishment of the new West Germany was a very politically stable state There was a lack of this in Asia, mainly because USA was not as committed to containing communism. They did send aid in the form of soldiers but there was no economical support in for example Korea. Although Asia was often an impoverished area and Americas belief that this was a common theme that allowed for the growth of communism there was a clear lack of economical support.
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
One of the reasons why the economy weakened after the Second World War was because of the resources Britain needed for warfare. Three industries which were the “engines of power”, cotton, coal and engineering, were declining (Darwin, 1988: 60). Without the means to modernize her industrial technologies Britain’s influence in the world declined. Furthermore, many factories, houses and shipping ports were destroyed during the bombing. According to Darwin (1988: 65), twenty five percent of the national wealth was needed for war supplies, restoration of industries and reconstruction of the buildings.
How far is it true to say that German people were increasingly reluctant to support the Nazi regime between September 1939 and early 1943? From the September 1st 1939, the start of the war, loyalty was crucial to the Nazi regime in order to maintain the war effort back in Nazi Germany, especially until the point of early 1943, when they were defeated in Stalingrad. This question is difficult to answer as you can’t be certain whether or not people really supported the regime, or just pretended to, in fear that if they didn’t then they would be reported to the Gestapo. This is also makes the support the Nazis had difficult to measure as civilians may have just been ‘reluctantly loyal’, and in fact didn’t actually support what the regime were doing. The word ‘support’ in relation to the question, means to me that a particular social group conformed with the Nazi regime, with no protesting and no opposition, by early 1943.
The Holocaust Aharon Appelfeld once said, “the Holocaust is a central event in many people's lives, but it also has become a metaphor for our century. There cannot be an end to speaking and writing about it.” Although there is much proof of the Holocaust from museums, textbooks, videos, eyewitnesses, etc., there is an international group of “revisionlists” who disagree with the Holocaust ever taking place; they “seek to prove that the Jewish Holocaust did not happen” (Drobnicki 103). This “Holocaust denial” group not only propagates their thoughts in Arabian, German, or other foreign countries, but America as well; they use anything from newspapers to speeches to mosques to the Internet to get their point across (Lasson 224). Even though the First Amendment of the Constitution forbids Congress from interfering with a citizen’s freedom of religion, speech, assembly, and/or petition, the government should put a stop to this ignorance. Ever since the Holocaust
When the Germans had lost World War I, had a huge impact back in Germany. Unfortunately the Weimar Republic was being started at the same point as when the war had ended. With this glooming over the beginning of Weimar many people were blaming them for the loss of the War. There were few things that were in the Treaty in which gave problems which led to events in which the Weimar would later have to deal with. One of the restrictions put on the Germans was the amount of Soldiers that they could have.
“The Diary of Anne Frank” essay The major concerns that can be explored in “The Diary of Anne Frank” are: lack of privacy, restricted freedom and suffer of adaption. Additionally, “The Diary of Anne Frank” demonstrates the difficulties of growing up, made harder in circumstances of war. Ultimately, despite of all the challenges Anne faced she lived in hope which gave her strength to get over her fear and loss of freedom during the Nazi invasion. Essentially, the lack of privacy, limitation of freedom and the theme of adaption are considered as the main issues found in “The Diary of Anne Frank.” “Quack, quack, quack says the Mistress Chatterback” is a directed statement to Peter. This can be explained by the use of repetition of “Quack, quack, quack” that Peter is as irritating as a duck.
This essay explains these factors in turns… Starting from the main aspect, a major problem for the L.O.N (League of Nations) was the Wall Street Crash in 1929. The Crash mainly affected the USA. USA was in short of money and couldn’t lend money to other nations or buy goods from other countries. This caused massive unemployment around the world. This made countries care about themselves (self- interest).
