Speer’s appointment as Architect of the Third Reich contributed greatly to his rise in prominence. Karl Hanke was the district leader of the Nazi Party, and knew of Speer’s architectural qualities. He then employed Speer to redecorate the inside of the new district organisation headquarters. Hanke moved swiftly up the ranks and hired Speer for projects such as; the redecoration of the new district headquarters in
Describe why the Munich Putsch failed in 1923 In 1923 Hitler’s plan to overthrow the government and create an uprising known as the ‘Munich Putsch’ failed. The Munich Putsch was a fiasco. It had been a bad idea, badly planned and badly executed. Firstly, Hitler was still relatively unknown and new to the political scene, with minimal support whereas the current government had the support of the police and army. Hitler had assumed the army and police would support him and join in with the putsch however they stayed true to the Weimar republic.
The ‘final solution’ of genocide was introduced at the Wannsee Conference of 1942. (Nichols, 2008). Most Historians divide into two schools when interpreting the Holocaust; the intentionalists and structualists. The intentionalists believe that Hitler’s intentions were clearly set out in Mein Kampf, early in his career, and when he came to power he and the Nazi party followed a step-by–step path to fulfilling these plans. Historians, Bracher and Jackel believed the holocaust was a completely intentional act, as Wyman states: “Intentionalism anchored Nazi behaviour in Hitler’s and his cohorts' deeply felt anti-Semitism, which they had formulated well before their ascent to power; once in power, they had put into practice what their intention had been all along.” (Wyman, p.419, 1996) Intentionalists argue everything in the Nazi period, was a deliberate move towards Hitler’s ultimate goals.
n 1919, Anton Drexler, Gottfried Feder and Dietrich Eckart formed the German Worker's Party (GPW) in Munich. The German Army was worried that it was a left-wing revolutionary group and sent Adolf Hitler, one of its education officers, to spy on the organization. Hitler discovered that the party's political ideas were similar to his own. He approved of Drexler's German nationalism and anti-Semitism but was unimpressed with the way the party was organized. Although there as a spy, Hitler could not restrain himself when a member made a point he disagreed with, and he stood up and made a passionate speech on the subject.
Intentionalists believe that the eradication of the Jews and ultimately the holocaust was all part of Adolf Hitler’s grand design, and that he would stop at nothing until his design was completed. The extremities of intentionalist beliefs tend to vary, with a large number of Historians taking a more intense view on Hitler
The list includes: radio, newspapers, films, textbooks, novels, the educational system, the KKK, the jugend, the workforce, the trade unions, culture, art and a list of state rules and regulations longer then our arm Nazi culture art Art was a favourite passion of Hitler. He was a frustrated artist and fancied himself a good architect. Remember his expereicne at the Vienna Academy Of Arts.

The unity of Germany was once weak due to several territorial changes brought on by Napoleon as well as the rule of Metternich who enforced conservative ideas and Prussian favoritism. When Otto von Bismarck became leader the sense of German pride and unity grew in strong numbers. He was a strong ruler who was willing to go to great lengths to achieve his goals. Through wars with Austria and France he was able to gain control of the German city-states. Nationalism held the several German states together as one and a new German empire with Bismarck as emperor was formed.
However, there were many people that were critical of Wolsey and believed he was arrogant. Overall I think sources 2 and 3 agree fairly strongly with source 1’s opinion of Wolsey. Source 1 talks about how Wolsey considered himself equal to king’s, showcasing his arrogance, backed up by when it says he was hostile to nobles and the public suggesting he thought he was above them. It then went on to talk about how he was hated by all people showing his unpopularity. However this source was written by Polydore Vergil, an Italian humanist who came to England and wrote the History of England, his analysis of Wolsey wasn’t very good as they’d had a personal feud due to Wolsey being jealous and Vergil spent a brief period in prison.
Many people, especially Americans, believe that Germany killed the passengers on the Lusitania for no apparent reason. Now, the government of America tries to call the incident a horrible mistake. Germany did not, however, completely act in error. Surprisingly, the Lusitania had many dark secrets. Germany sunk the Lusitania because
Ernst Roehm had a different view of a successful Germany and Hitler was on different path (A3). Apparently Roehm and Hitler have butted heads before and Hitler came on top (A3). Hitler was growing very afraid of the Brownshirts, so he felt the only way to keep power was to put the S.A on leave. Hitler was thinking that another revolution could have happened with the S.A in power (D2). Hitler paid attention to what happened with Russia and was able to not make the same mistake.
