Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Adolf Hitler and world war 2. It needs to be at least 500 words. Adolf Hitler and World War II Rise to Power The year 1920 was a defining point for Hitler’s success by the reorganization of German Workers’ party. It renamed as National Socialist German Workers, the Nazi. Hitler became the chair of the party in 1921. He managed to accomplish leadership in the party resulting of his paramount skill as a speaker. He held large multitudes spellbound by his oratory speech. He structured the party into a paramilitary organization and managed to win the support of many prominent nationalists like Field Marshal Ludendorff (Rice 35).
In the year 1923, Hitler anticipated to coup the republican government in a “beer-hall putsch.” The Leading Bavarian officials, the discontented nationalists, surrounded at a meeting during a Munich beer hall held by Nazi militia or the storm troopers. The nationalists had loyalty to the revolution of Hitler. After regaining his freedom, they used the army (Reichswehr) in defeating the coup. That led to the fleeing of Hitler. Later, arrested and imprisoned for five year in Landsberg fortress where he served nine months (Rice 46).
The putsch was significant to the growth of Hitler as it made him known throughout Germany. He dictated his ambitions to Rudolf Hess on the turgid struggle while still at the prison. His sentiments were full of worship of power, the anti-Sematic outpourings, and the strategy for the world domination and the disdain for the civil morality. It, therefore, became the bible for the National Socialism. In 1929, under the leadership of Hitler and Gregor Strasser, the party gained popularity during the economic depression, bringing in mass support (Rice 76).
The Germans were tired of the reparations payments to the World War I victors. Threatened by the hyperinflation, possible Communist takeover, and political chaos, Hitler offered the solutions and the scapegoat. To the economic depression, he promised to despoil the “Jew financiers.” To the workers, he promised security. As a result, he received the financial support from the bankers and the industrialists with the anti-Communism and in promising to control the trade unionism (Rice 77).
Therefore, Hitler had a sinister and a keen insight into issues to do with mass psychology. He was the master of maneuver and intrigue. After getting the citizenship of Germany through the Brunswick state, he ran for the presidency during the 1932 elections. He loses to the prevalent war protagonist Paul von Hindenburg. He received a major part of his votes from the protestant followers, approximately 18.3% of all the casted votes (Rice 83).
German Citizens losing their Civil Rights
Adolf Hitler ascendancy to chancellorship position led to his immediate consolidation of power through the Nazi Party. He completely transformed the country into a police state. Under his reign, Germans and not only the Jews lost their civil rights. From 9th to 10th November, 1938, an incident known as the “Kristallnacht”, the Nazis torched synagogues, destroyed Jewish schools, homes, businesses and killed almost 100 Jews. The “Night of Broken Glass,” the aftermath of Kristallnacht saw 30,000 Jewish men arrested and sent to the Nazi concentration camps (Rice 96). The repressive policies on Jews and ultimately, the Germans, worsened after the incidence of Kristallnacht.
Hitler killed the civil rights of the Germans. For instance, he creation an office called Furror and induced a frightened and confused Hindenburg in signing a decree euphemistically known as, “For the Protection of the People and the State” (Rice 103). Such rights suspended the basic rights of the citizens and imposed the death sentence for arson, resistance to the decree, disturbance to public order and sabotage. Immediate arrests made on any suspicion. Peopled could be imprisoned without any trial or the right of attorney. Such suspensions not lifted during the Nazi regime.
Hitler wrote Mein Kampf where he outlined his plans for Germany and his political ideology. Despite the message in the book, especially on the hatred to the Jews, people still voted for him. His public relationship with religion was an opportunistic pragmatism. He defended his deeds by seeking refuge on Christian doctrines. Therefore, maintained popularity by the Christians (Rice 106).
