During the outbreak of the war and amidst they turmoil of the tragedies, Hitler ordered a “mercy killing” of both the disabled and sick. Their execution was determined by a simple questionnaire that was conducted by three “medical experts.” </li></li></ul><li>The Impact That Nationalism Had…<br />1929:Nationalism is the root belief of the Nazi party, having more people become nationalists led to more Nazi’s. The Wall Street Crash, being the cause of the Great Depression, was impacted by nationalism because it was an event that caused desperation amongst the people. Desperate times call for desperate measures, which is why the ultra-nationalistic Nazi’s became so appealing to the citizens. <br />1930: Nationalism had led Hitler to his very strong and controversial beliefs. The overwhelming need within him to have the world hear his opinion pushed him to become the passionate, ambitious leader he was. The timing and his raw skill as a leader went perfect together. Nationalism was spreading like wildfire, and this became blatantly obvious when the Nazi party went from the smallest to the second largest political group in Germany.<br />1931: Things began to work well for Hitler. He was gaining the trust of the campaign and the people were beginning to follow his nationalistic ideologies. When the Nazi Brown House opened in Munich, it only reinforced the strength of the rapidly growing committee. At the time of GeliRaubal’s death, Hitler was just beginning his walk to fame. However, his beliefs had driven the only woman he ever loved to feel her only escape was death. This tragedy gave him a stronger will to strive for success. He needed something to live for after her death.<br />
1932: Nationalism, becoming so popular, led to Hitler’s close call to the presidential title. Being so close, also gave him the confidence and the publicity he needed in order to obtain complete power in the future.<br />1933: The appointing of Chancellor was a turning point in Hitler’s reign, in ways that gave him more power, popularity and trust. Nationalism was his drive the whole way, and people wanting these values, hoped he could give them what they wanted. Hitler, being held on such a high pedestal, took advantage of the people’s vulnerability and planted his seeds of anti-Semitism, convincing his fellow Germans to destroy the Jewish population, starting by boycotting their businesses, and burning their books. <br />1934: By this time Nationalistic Nazis had become the most powerful political party in Germany, which became apparent when the SA had more men than the regular army. This many people can easily reinforce the ideas and beliefs of their superior leader. Hindenburg's death was the complete end to Hitler’s wait for power. He had all power now and was willing to use it and manipulate his followers in order to complete his goal; demolish the anti-German population..<br />1935: The Nuremberg Laws were made because of Nationalism. Hitler believed German should only be Germans, it should be one nation in one area! Having others making the blood impure was unacceptable so these Laws allowed him to somewhat make the German population exclusive.<br />1936: Nationalism was almost ignored when 18000 Germans were sent to fight for the Spanish. Also, having the Olympics in Berlin gave Hitler another chance to use propaganda and publicize his Nazism. <br />
1937: Nationalism led to Modern art being banned because it was said the style was un-German, making it unfit for the Nation.<br />1938: The nation was growing and taking power of Austria. Nationalists believed it to be as much of a German Country as Germany itself, so it too must be completely Nationalized. Also, having both places be Nationalist, they must both be Semite free! The free for all against the Jews took place.<br />1939: Hitler had become power hungry and could not get enough. He invaded Poland, in hopes of making his Nation even larger and more powerful, in hopes of taking the whole world eventually and creating It to be a place of clean, perfect, superior race. In order to filter out the unworthy he ordered the Mercy Killing which entitled the sick and disabled to death.<br />
