HItler assignment

  1. 1. My Fantabulous Hitler Extravaganza<br />Economic depression put everyone in doubt after WWI. As more people became unemployed more people starved, everyone was afraid. Hitler took advantage of this and gave civilians someone to blame; Jews. When people are angry they become more focused and passionate. Hitler observed this and used it strategically. Propaganda was one of Adolf’s smartest strategies. As soon as everyone was looking for something to follow, Hitler threw out his ideas and showed everyone how easy it is to use desperate people. Once he had people paying attention, he explained why he was right. Hitler is described as being an admirable public speaker who could draw people in. Once distressed Germans saw a worthy cause to follow, one that told them they deserved better, they couldn’t look away.He was always backed up by wealthy businessmen, so was rarely in financial need. In the modern world money has become an asset, especially for world domination. So Hitler was wise when he made important friends, not only for public support. Hitler had determination. I think all his bitterness and anger gave him incentive. Since he was unafraid to use military tactics, he could carry on all his aspirations. Those who wouldn’t follow him would learn to, he wasn’t about to give in. <br />Hitler’s family life was not something to be envied. His father was a military man, having been an officer himself and was unsympathetic and disciplined. So, it’s not far off to say that Adolf Hitler didn’t have a very casual boyhood. Though he was fairly close to his mother, while his father was alive his word was law.Little Adolf was the second oldest, having one older brother who was, being the oldest, victim to their father’s regular frustrations. When Hitler was still young his big brother left, being unable to take anymore. This made Adolf the replacement. Abandoned by his shielding older brother and thrown the responsibility of being the older sibling himself, this must have been a lot to handle.After this he was, logically next in line for his father’s beatings. I think this, causing some of the last memories of his father left a lasting impression. It most likely inspired some of his first thoughts of deep hatred and want for control. He would have felt so humiliated that he could do nothing about it. He would never want that feeling again. <br />During catholic ceremonies little Adolf was amazed by how the Abbot commanded power and respect. For two years he wanted to be a priest himself. Perhaps this was one of the many examples to Hitler as a child that so much power could be held by one person so easily. Between his father and the Abbot, Adolf had powerful examples of men before him.When Hitler was a boy, he found a picture book of his father’s on the War of 1870-1871 which fascinated him. He loved it and poured over it for hours. This was his introduction into war and his bases for many games. He would play fighting and war games with other boys and never tired of them. This could have been why he was so eager to fight in WWI.When he was eleven years old, his little brother died. This hit him fairly hard and left him in shock. His war games stopped as the real meaning of death was realized. To add to everything else, his little six year old brother was buried in the family cemetery outside his window. No matter who you are this would twist your mind at least a little.<br />As soon as he could Hitler signed his name to the Bavarian army. He was incredibly patriotic and did all he could to help his army. He believed that everyone was there to die at the drop of a coin if needed. Because of this determination he earned two iron crosses for bravery which reinforced his belief that he was making the right choices. I think also, this confused him somewhat. Why was it such a special award when so easily won? Why more men weren’t trying as hard as he was? This could have been another cause for his feeling of superiority and disgust for the weak.This was when he began to really hate the Jews. Many communists leaders were Jews, and the communists were the enemy. Near the end, Hitler was injured and also temporarily blinded by mustard gas. So, he wasn’t in the fighting when they lost and didn’t understand why they lost. The choices made by German officers confused him, in his mind they were so close to winning. Somehow he was beaten by Jews and this infuriated him.<br />Adolf Hitler grew up in a very anti Semitist area. He was told as a child that the Jews were filthy people who were responsible for everything that was wrong. Some examples were modern art, pornography, and prostitution. If anything was corrupt it was because of Jews. To add to this his mother’s doctor was a Jew and she died of breast cancer. In his mind the only person who had really cared for him died ‘because of a Jew’. There was no one left for him and it was because a ‘Jew didn’t try hard enough’. <br />Hitler had no fear of responsibility. He was willing to take control of the entire world, and although he was unafraid of eliminating anyone in his way it sure would be a stressful job. I suppose you could say he didn’t know the definition of lazy. I don’t think I could ever really understand why Hitler did what he did, because I never lived the life he did. No one has had to make the exact choices someone else made, so I don’t believe anyone could really understand anyone else. <br />Bibliography<br /> BIBLIOGRAPHY l 1033 (n.d.).
