They are numbered in chronological order.*Our Top Five Events<br />And Reasons<br />In Prussia the Nazi Party becomes the largest single party in the state parliament, April 24, 1932.<br />We chose this first event because it is showing how much the people have begun to believe that they must be ultra nationalistic.

They fell into the ultra nationalistic way of thinking just as the people in Germany had begun to do in the past years.<br />Germany Invades Poland, September 1st, 1939.<br />Nationalism at this point was exceedingly great, the people had a “them VS us” view of the world and took steps, perhaps leaps, to destroy that “them”.<br />
