Hitler and his Nazi party brought about various changes in Germany between 1934 and 1939. These are political, economical, and social changes, and they affected many people in different ways. The ordinary people in Germany, especially those who were unemployed were the ones who were benefited by some of the economical changes that the Nazis made. However, German communists, social democrats, Jews, and other people whom the Nazis took a prejudiced view of had to undergo many hardships during the period of the changes. Since the year Hitler became Führer and gained absolute power, many events occurred that changed the course of German history and took a heavy toll of human lives. The following paragraphs are about how Hitler and the Nazi party started the political, economical, and social events, and what kind of effects they had on the people.

The political events include ‘Night of the long knives’, Terror Campaign, Nuremberg laws, and Kristallnacht. The first major event that took place in the year 1934 was ‘Night of the long knives’. This was triggered by the increasing power of the SA, the private army of the Nazi party. Hitler needed to stop this in order to gain support from the army that objected to the SA. So, Hitler ordered the SS, his bodyguard, to kill SA leaders and his private enemies as well. After this massacre Hitler became more powerful, and after one and a half months President Hindenburg died, so, Hitler became both Führer and Reich Chancellor. Terror campaign was carried out, too, and political prisoners, Jehovah’s witnesses, Anti-Socials, criminals, homosexuals, emigrants, and Jews were sent to concentration camps and suffered several kinds of cruelty. They were restricted in their movements, and anyone who broke the strict rules was hanged. Between 1934 and 1937 the average percentage of prisoners who were killed in the concentration camps…...

...STUDENT ACTIVITY SECTION 1. SUMMARY OF THE LEARNING OBJECTIVES The preparation of the consolidated financial statements is done using a consolidation worksheet, the left-hand columns of which contain the financial statements of the members of the group. The adjustment columns contain the consolidation worksheet entries that adjust the left-hand columns to form the consolidated financial statements. The adjustment entries have no effect on the actual financial records of the parent and its subsidiaries. At acquisition date, an acquisition analysis is undertaken. The key purposes of this analysis are to determine the fair values of the identifiable assets, liabilities and contingent liabilities of the subsidiary, and to calculate any goodwill or gain on bargain purchase arising from the business combination. From this analysis, the main consolidation worksheet adjustment entries at acquisition date are the business combination valuation entries, to adjust carrying amounts of the subsidiaries’ assets and liabilities to fair value, and the pre-acquisition entries. In preparing consolidated financial statements in periods subsequent to acquisition date, the consolidation worksheet will contain valuation entries and pre-acquisition entries. However, these entries are not necessarily the same as those used at acquisition date. If there are changes to the assets and liabilities of the subsidiaries since acquisition date, or there have been movements in pre-acquisition......

Nazi or Not?

...Nazi or Not? Often times in a war, political and social agendas of a country become a major part, if not the main focus, of a soldiers. Many germans believed that the german army,Wehrmacht, kept Nazi Ideology separate from army orders. Yet as time went on many historians questioned this idea of Wehrmacht being recognized as an apolitical, professional army. I believe that orders by important German generals such as General Eric Von Manstein and General Herman Hoth, not only dispute the thought that the German army was apolitical but also show that Wehrmacht had in fact been corrupted by Nazi ideology. When considering the order made by General Eric Von Mansteing to the Eleventh Army of Wehrmacht, points are shown to prove that although thought to be apolitical Wehrmacht had indeed become politically driven. Manstein stated, “The Jewish-Bolshevik system must be once and for all. Never again may it interfere in our European living-space.” Through his introduction of Nazi legal and moral concepts into army life Manstein began to corrupt the German army. Quoting Manstein, “The German people are in the midst of a battle for life and death against the Bolshevik system. This battle is conducted against the Soviet army not only in a conventional manner according to the rules of European warfare.” This statement was the only the beginning of Manstein introducing an ideological component to the German soldiers. He began to transform the war into a war of survival against the......

...Economic Minister in 1934 and used the financial facilities of the Reichsbank to help Germany rearm. He was then given dictatorial powers over the economy. The new plan of September 1934 provided control of all aspects of trade and currency exchange. Schacht had many ideas on how to get Germany's economy back up to full strength. One of his ideas was influenced by Keynes, a British economist. He adopted the policy of deficit financing; this idea was that money would be spent of public works to create jobs. The government would pay people to build motorways, which would then reduce unemployment. They then had money to spend, which would mean more products would be needed and companies would have to take on more workers, lowering unemployment further. The German government hoped that the secondary jobs, which were being created, would reemploy the majority of the population, instead of having to feed more money into the system. But this didn't just solve unemployment; it was useful to the public, it meant there were now modern roads, which eased travel over the country. This idea had one more advantage although this wasn't for the people; it was for the Nazi party. Building roads and updating the country was good propaganda; people liked what they were doing and had even more reason to want to keep them in power. Building wasn't the only scheme launched; afforestation was also used to create jobs. This idea paid off as......

Nazi State

...TOPIC: NAZI GERMANY Propaganda, terror and coercion underpinned the creation and maintenance of the Nazi state. Consider this in the period 1933-1939. The adage that perception is often stronger than reality has never been truer than in the Nazi state of 1933-1939, where image played a colossal role in the anti-semitic and Hitler myth propaganda of Joseph Goebbels. Image manufactured the fearful aura of the Gestapo as well as the ubiquitous representation of the law, both of which created and cemented acquiescence amongst the German population. It was through the creation of perception in Nazi society that propaganda, terror and coercion underpinned the creation and maintenance of the Nazi state. Any attempt to gauge the success of Nazi propaganda in the creation and maintenance of the Nazi state is somewhat difficult, as German society during 1933-1939 was so heavily influenced by terror and coercion that reported opinion did not necessarily reflect the true sentiment of the public. Nevertheless, it would be naïve to disregard the significant role that Nazi propaganda played in ensuring that the German public were unified in their support of the government. The most crucial objective of Nazi propaganda in the creation of the Nazi state was to create a new heightened national awareness. This was done through the creation of the Volksgemeinschaft (People’s Community), an institution that established cohesive community values. In......

Consolidation of Power Russia

...Why were stalin’s opponents unable to prevent him from becoming the leader of the USSR by 1929? For five years following the death of Lenin, a power struggle took place in the USSR. The struggle was not just abut which person should become leader, it was also about the policies that party should follow and keeping some people out of power. Joseph Stalin emerged in 1929 as the victor of this struggle with the due to his ability to manipulate the party machine, his devious tactics to undermine his opponents and his popular policies and ideologies which appealed to the average Bolshevik member which made it nearly unpreventable for his opponents to stop him. Due to Stalins ability to manipulate the party machine,. Stalin used his position as general secretary, a job that few wanted due to seeming lack of importance with this job however, Stalin was able to increase his hold over the Bolshevik Party. In the 12th Congress, 1923, Stalin by using his position as General Secretary was able to influence who attended the Party Congress leading to a 30% of the members there being under Stalin’s influence. This was very significant because for someone who aimed to lead and control the party and government needed to have the support of majority in Congress and Politburo. Furthermore Stalin also increased his power of the government by being head of the Central Control Commission. Through this job Stalin was able to discipline any supporters of his rivals: For example, in the 15th......

How Effectively Did the Occupying Powers Deal with the Nazi Legacy in the Years 1945-1949?

...itself. When focusing on the Nazi legacy the allies faced the issues of the political vacuum of power now that the leading party of the nation for the last 12 years, also the systems and culture created by this. Their main ways of tackling the Nazi legacy boiled down to several major areas; denazification, democratisation and the Nuremberg trials. The success of dealing with the Nazi legacy was fairly limited especially with the division of germany, also in such a short time period the ally powers struggled to find their feet. The Nuremberg trials which took place from the 20 november1945 -1 october 1946, were the trials of the leading Nazi war criminals or what was left of them. There were 13 trials in total over this time period and was the most tangible form of dealing with the Nazi legacy and holding those who were responsible. The prisoners were tried for; crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity and conspiracy, most of the evidence only came to light at the trials and are now what we consider most of the Nazi plans and actions. By the end of the trials 3 were acquitted and 12 were sentenced to death including Goring. The trials were able to sentence the remaining Nazis but aren’t the major way of dealing with the legacy they left. The trials set a president for what would happen to the Nazis and were rather symbolic of destroying the legacy, also by killing or sentencing the leading Nazis it prevented the reoccurrence of the Nazi party forming with any......

...Nazi State and Population The Nazi state set out to achieve a population that comes together as a community under certain rules and regulations. In 1935, Nazism was on the rise and working towards unifying Germany. A movie was released called, Triumph of the Will, which demonstrated Hitler’s ideal nation. This was one of the first sound movies created and was used to illustrate a new Germany and the power of Nazism. This movie depicted Hitler’s beliefs of an ideal nation. Also during this time, the Nazis established a set of laws called Nuremberg Laws. These were created to set rules and regulations for all of those who wanted to be apart of the Reich. The Nuremburg laws were the first standards set for individuals to figure out if they were apart of the Nazi nation or not. By using a new creation of film to reach a broad audience and publishing Nazi expectations through law, Triumph of the Will and the Nuremberg Laws both reflect Nazi efforts to shape it’s nation through the use of propaganda and national symbols, creating a welfare program with security of jobs, and identifying what it is to be a Jew. One way the Nazi party sought to bring together Germany as a community was through the use of propaganda and national symbols. The movie, Triumph of the Will, had a great deal of propaganda incorporated in it. It showed hatred of communists through the use of the color red. There were also a variety of images related to religion throughout the movie such as: burning......

Bolshevik Consolidation of Power

...How did the Bolsheviks consolidate their power in the first few months after the October 1917 Revolution? (30 marks) Lenin’s Bolshevik takeover of power in Russia left the country confused and inquisitive into what the future may hold, with their recently adopted power only leaving them with a tenuous grip around the nation. The majority of Russia predicted that the Bolshevik’s would only last a matter of weeks, before worsening economic and social issues would leave their power insecure and prove too difficult for them to correct. Also the opposition was gathering momentum which Lenin knew had to be stopped in its tracks before any attacks were made on his newly formed government, consolidating power was key for the Bolsheviks and the first few months were paramount to their success. Right from the start Lenin realised that opposition was plentiful to one-party rule and his emerging Bolshevik dictatorship. Still throughout the cities many working class citizens still supported the idea of Soviet power, not Bolshevik power. The majority expected the Socialist to remerge from the dismantled Provisional Government and reinstate their power over Russia, but Lenin had always proposed to rule alone and made it clear that his party were going to merciless to any opposition that came between him and total supremacy. At the top of Lenin’s list of objectives was forming his new government, named the Council of People’s Commissars, also known as the Sovnarkom. This came as a surprise...

Nazi Rise to Power

...Michael Bergin Professor Patricia Chappine GSS 2248 February 17, 2016 Nazi Rise to Power The Nazi party’s rapid rise to power did not go off without a hitch. After the hangover from WW1, the mood surrounding Germany was grim. Germany was slapped with international sanctions and forced to pay reparations to France and Britain for the huge costs of the war. The German people were looking for hope and a leader that could generate some real positive changes. In 1919, Adolf Hitler joined a small political party where he quickly rose to leadership through a number of emotional and captivating speeches. He “promoted a national sense of pride, militarism, and a concept of a radically “pure” Germany” (1). By the end of that year Hitler became the official Fuhrer of this small political party called the Nazi party which consisted of about 3,000 members. Hitler used the Jews as a scapegoat for Germany’s economic issues while encouraging anti-Semitic views and behaviors. In 1923, any momentum the Nazi party possessed came to a halt in Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch. In an attempt to overthrow local authorities in Munich, Hitler was sentenced to jail and charged with high treason. As things were looking bleak for the Nazi’s Hitler utilized the courtroom as a platform for his greatest attribute, propaganda. He would rant for hours and hours against the Weimar government demanding change. Throughout his trail Hitler actually gained support for his cause. At the end of the day the......

...Question 2: Was nazism nationalist or racist? National Socialist German Workers Party or more commonly know as Nazi was formed in 1919. Under the leadership of Adolf Hitler in 1921, the party eventually becomes the most powerful political force in German. Nazi party was an ideology that was based on racism and nationalism that governed Germany from 1933 to 1945. They promised to build up its greatness with a scientific theory of racism in which people were racially superior to all others. Their effort and endeavor eventually brought a great deal of success to its nation and followers. Based on the statements made by the authority, they demand the equality of the German people with all other nation and “how they demand land and soil (colonies) for the nourishment of [their] people” (NSDAP program ex.3). Just by looking through their ardor at the first glance, Nazism seems to approaches nationalism. However, when appraise and evaluate acutely about their political form, their nationalistic approaches are just the outer shell and the reality is turns out to be racist. In Nazism, their intention is to give favor to the people with German blood while excluding the foreign races. They made the numerous rules of restriction while strongly support the idea of discriminations for non-Germans while the people with German blood were advocated in almost every aspect in their country. Non-German people were forbidden to participate in many fields such as politics, cultural life and......
