It may be good to have power based on arms but it is better and more joyful to win and to keep the hearts of the people.” Throughout Triumph of the Will, adoration and approval for Hitler is clearly shown on the faces of those in the crowd. The documentary itself is propaganda because it portrays Hitler and the Nazi party as the good guys rather than exposing the evil and corruption within their regime. Nazism’s ideal of the power and purification of the race is predominately shown in The Triumph of the Will. Of the thousands of German citizens shown throughout the film, none are of Jewish decent. In the film, a Nazi leader states that “A people which does not hold with the purity of its race will perish”.
The Holocaust was a time of devastation and corruption; it was a time of cruelty. Adolf Hitler, who started the epidemic against the Jews, tried to make the world “perfect.” Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler used the Jews as a scapegoat for Germany’s economic problems which ultimately led to World War II. Hitler not only became a powerful and influential man, but also a judgmental man. Hitler blinded people with his influence.
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. This would have made sure people continued to support Hitler even after he was voted in as they would feel a kind of loyalty towards him. However, Propaganda cannot be described as the only crucial factor in the maintenance of power by the Nazis as propaganda alone cannot change an entire countries views. The introduction of new social controls further aided in the Nazi’s maintenance of power. Anti-Nazi judges were removed and replaced by those
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.
The Salem citizens and the Worldstate citizens, in a way, are similar to the Germans of the 1935. The Germans initiated the reptilian state because of the fear inserted by their government, and ultimately, they conformed to the Nazi beliefs in order to be immune from the inhumane
The removal of the opposition was also a useful fact into the Nazis staying in power. Another element that was key for keeping the Nazis in power was the economic state of Germany at this time. This helped the regime stay in power because they were the most confident that they could solve the economic depression of Germany. Each of the sources has a strong point that support or challenge the statement that the key element in keeping the regime in power was the consent of the German people. Source A is about removing opposition and the use of propaganda to control what the population thought and did this is challenging the question as the consent is not given but actually forced out of the none Arian people of Germany.
World War II was the result of Hitler's “master” plan. Adolf's master plan consisted of taking over the world with the power of his philosophy called Nazism. Nazism is a German National Socialist party. He was very clear about his views and goals of the future world. Hitler expressed that Germans were superior and all other races were irrelevant.
He did not let anything stand in his way; unfortunately, the S.A was in the way. Hitler had many goals for Germany, and was able to succeed but he was only able to do that because he got rid of the S.A. Once he gained absolute power World War 2
Bullock says that: “Himmler’s SS were now given their independence of the SA, and placed directly under Hitler’s orders with Himmler as SS Reichsfuehrer”# this source suggests that Himmler and the SS only became powerful through Hitler’s direction. W.L. Shirer supports this view, saying: “Soon this much-better-disciplined and loyal force would become much more powerful than the SA had ever been.”# Therefore suggesting the SS gained power after the Night of the Long Knives because, unlike the SA they were disciplined and loyal to Hitler. Their rise to power is important since the SS played a prominent role in the events in Germany until the end of Nazi rule. This rise to power is important since the SS played a big role in the events in Germany for the duration of Nazi rule.
Assess the successes and failures of Hitler's domestic policies. Hitler’s domestic policies were a success due to the fact that the Nazis were able to Nazify the German population with little to no opposition. The Weimar Republic collapsed in 1933 due to its weak structure and their inability to resolve the deep economic crisis (Great Depression). Many Germans had turned to the Nazis because they had feared communism and sought a way out of the economic crisis, not because they supported the Nazi ideology. When Hitler and the Nazis achieved absolute power by early August 1934, their main goals were to Nazify the German people, improve the economy (with their National Socialistic ideals), and overall maintain absolute power within Germany, while pursuing their radical ideologies.
