The year was 1929, the Great Depression had hit hard all over the world.
People were losing their jobs, and their way of life was changing drastically
right before their eyes; the people needed money fast. They needed to rebuild
their lives and get back on their feet again, economically, politically, and
socially. They needed a way out of this slump fast, and Hitler was there for the
rescue. In 1933, Germany was facing a high unemployment level, leaving people to
fend for themselves on the streets, Hitler took advantage of the peoples low
moral and made them big promises of the dawn of a new era for Germany.
The social classes lost their meanings. The middle-class was ruined by
the Depression: they were stripped of their livelihoods. The Nazi\'s promised
them the one thing that were desperately in need of to survive: Bread!
The Nazi\'s promised to give the farmers repossession of their land.
Hitler had a way of persuading people to do what he wants. He knew what the
people wanted and how to make them believe that they were actually going to get
it. Hitler was given a chance to go into power despite the doubts of he ability
to rule from the Communists and Socialist parties. Unfortunately the both
parties were wrong, he was voted into power , in March and was elected without a
parliament. Hitler proclaimed a "New Germany." He believed that German culture
was to be kept solid. His way of purifying their race was to burn books
Americans, Jew, and Non-Germans. The philosophy was that if you destroy the
ideas in the books, you destroy the people\'s ability to hold and be aware of any
other beliefs than what they are told. The people of Germany were not exposed to
any ideas that contradicted the beliefs of Hitler. Hitler believed and was
correct, that if you destroy and reason for someone to disagree with you, you
limit the person\'s knowledge which limits them from deciding what\'s right and
Hitler had a way of captivating his audience, he made promises to his
people that made them feel strong, proud, and gave them a sense of salvation. He
gave them something for which to look forward to. Hitler loved to speak to a
large group of people. They were taken by his presence and enchanted by the
words he spoke and the emotion he generated through the crowd. His audience
would stand there dumbfounded, being swept up with the words he preached and
would get caught up with their own reactions to the words. He would say things
that made the country\'s future look optimistic. His followers would applaud him
after he spoke, and they would leave holding the same ideas as Hitler and his
men followed. Even though people knew Hitler\'s ideas were wrong, they listened
just to be part of such a powerful crowd. People wanted to be included and be
part of the happy cheering crowd, so they followed his ideas and cheered him on.
They placed Hitler on this high pedestal, showing him loving children, and women.
He brained washed his people into thinking he was going to bring them glory;
instead it brought them misery and shame. In March 1935, Hitler created, formed
and organized an army during peacetime. He made this public news. People around
the world saw that he developing a strong army, and did nothing to stop it. It\'s
purpose was so the SS would create a superior race. It was the duty of their
army to feel as if they are defending their country at all times. This occurred
again when Hitler marched into took over and made it a province. Czechoslovakia,
an ally to France, Britain, and the Soviet Union. People gave Sudetenland to
Hitler and left Czechoslovakia bare. They were ready to fight but Britain and
France helped Hitler, due to his cunning ways. The nation\'s of Europe just
closed there eyes to Hitler\'s rein of terror, and gave him control of their
ally country without a fight. On March 15, 1939, Hitler took over Prague and
destroyed the democratic government. People saw no hope of rising against him.
When the Germans finally caught on to his sinister tactics of brainwashing it
was too late, no one had control over him. In November, 1938, Kristolnacht,
"The Night of Broken Glass" thousands of Jews were thrown in concentration camps.
He organized boycotts at Jewish stores, to hurt them monetarily. Hitler had an
amazing amount of power and was expanding rapidly when he introduced Blitzkrieg,
German warfare, which included
