The arrival of Röhm was an important development as he had access to the army political fund and was able to transfer some of the money into the GWP. The German Worker's Party used some of this money to advertise their meetings. Adolf Hitler was often the main speaker and it was during this period that he developed the techniques that made him into such a persuasive orator. Hitler's reputation as an orator grew and it soon became clear that he was the main reason why people were joining the party. This gave Hitler tremendous power within the organization as they knew they could not afford to lose him.
This propaganda continued even once they had won the election. Furthermore, once the Nazi’s had gained power, they began to push anti-Jew and other very racist and fascist propaganda on the people of Germany. Hitler was shown in newspapers and presented on the radio as a strong and just leader; with the Jews being represented as evil. Propaganda was therefore crucial to the maintenance of power by the Nazis as it meant when they began their attack on the Jews, they had the support of their people. Furthermore, it can be argued that propaganda was crucial to the maintenance of power by the Nazis as they portrayed Hitler as powerful and showed him to be good for the country, making sure people continued to show support for the Nazis and it portrayed Hitler as above all party politicking and as a figure for national focus and loyalty.
Holocaust happened because Hitler and the Nazis were racist. They believed the German people were a 'master race', who were superior to others. They even created a league table of 'races' with the Aryans at the top and with Jews, Gypsies and black people at the bottom. These 'inferior' people were seen as a threat to the purity and strength of the German nation. When the Nazis came to power they persecuted these people, took away their human rights and eventually decided that they should be exterminated.
He wanted to direct German aggression off the government and used those groups of people as scapegoats, causing one of the greatest tragedies in history. As Hitler gained control territories in other European countries, the intensity as well as territorial spread of persecution increased. By the end of World War II Nazis had killed an estimated six million
In 1919, Hitler had written that systematic legitimate opposition can only be done through sensible anti Semitism (The Holocaust, n.d). He blamed Jews for the defeat in war and also asserted that Jews stabbed us in the back just to seize power and control German people. Hitler also declared that Jews wanted to undermine the Aryan Race through communism and capitalism. In his book Mein Kampf, (My Struggle) he further extended this hatred for Jews when he said that Jews are an evil race who wants to dominate the world. Nazi policy treated Jews as “parasitic vermin” who are only worthy of eradication.
“Anti-Semitism was the means by which he smashed the legal system, established his dictatorship, and implicated the German people in his crimes” (Schoenberner 1). From the beginning, Hitler very smoothly manipulated the minds of his people. He convinced them to follow his leadership and eventually play out his evil plan. The German people were victims of one of the worst cases of propaganda the world has ever known. They were used in Hitler’s effort to end the Jewish
This demonstrates how the Holocaust destroyed families being together, and how it affected how history developed through the years. In addition, the Holocaust shouldn't be forgotten because it made people aware of tyrant leaders. For example, when the SS men stripped the Jews, "An SS came towards us wielding a club. He commanded: 'Men to the left! Women to the right!'
Joseph Stalin truly strengthened this nation to become a widely known superpower, although he carried out mass genocide and created a murderous dictatorship. Historians have viewed him in many different ways, including a psychotic power-driven killer, a military and communist genius, and also the man who transformed the Soviet Union into an industrial colossus. Joseph Stalin should have never taken the role of the USSR’s leader. Instead, Trotsky should have been the one to take Lenin’s place, which would have saved the lives of millions. Joseph Stalin put forth many positive attributes to the USSR, however; the only reason this was possible was through his brutal intimidation tactics used on the nation’s
The Role of Race in the Holocaust B: Analytical body Through my research I tried to look for the role of race in the Nazi System, which probably caused the holocaust which is locked chambers that are spread with poisonous killing gas aimed for killing the Jews. Race is seen as the most illogical component of the Nazis system, which made it a dictatorial regime capable of committing acts of evil. Fundamental to all Hitler’s policies his absolute belief in the dominance of the Aryan Race and all need to prepare the German people for its role as master of Europe. According to Nazis race theorists, that the essential characteristics of the typical “Aryan” included a tall and slim build, a narrow face and nose, a famous well-known chin, afresh skin, and a gold or blond hair. Hitler aimed gradually to purify the German race, and this would be achieved by eliminating racial mixing, to create in von Shirach’s words “the perfect and complete human animal- the superman” the main obstacle to this as Hitler thought was the “eternal enemy”, the Jews.
The Holocaust The Holocaust (1) all started with one crazy German Nazi named Adolf Hitler. Hitler started the holocaust to start a scapegoat due to the repercussions due to World War 1. After World War 1 Germany was forced to pay for all the damages in all the places that they had invaded which had put them in an economic crisis. Hitler decided to pin the Jews at the root of all of Germany’s problems. He aimed his violence towards Jews, but not just Jews it was also towards outsiders like communists, gypsies, Jehovah Witnesses, and homosexuals.
