Nazi germany project

  1. 1. Economy in Nazi Germany Bravo, Agustin Costamagna, Francesca Frias, Lucia Okecki, Felix
  2. 2. Introduction In the following presentation, we are going to talk about how Nazis dealt with the Economy in Germany when they came to power. First, how they recovered from the Depression and how they rearmed. Later, the promises that the Nazis made to the workers. Then, how they dealt with the farming communities. After that, how they convinced the middle classes with their big businesses. And in the end, how did the national community worked.
  3. 3. Economic recovery and rearmament As soon as the Nazis came to power, they had to solve two main problems: Desperate unemployment and the farm crisis. By 1933, ● The worst of the Depression was over. ● German finances were organised (public works projects and conservation programmes). Hitler`s best plans: - Rearmament - Conscription, reduced unemployment - Four-Year Plan Bringing economic recovery, boosted Hitler´s performance and boosted his national pride.
  4. 4. Nazis and the workers Hitler, promised to lower unemployment and he won the loyalty of industrial workers through: - Propaganda - Strength Through Joy (KDF) - Volkswagen Beetle. Symbol. In the end, they never received the car. - Beauty of Labour movement. What was the price of these advances? - Workers lost their main political party, the SPD. - Workers had to join the DAF(General Labour Front). This organisation kept strict control of workers. How? They could not strike for better pay and conditions. They could not move on better-paid jobs.
  5. 5. The Nazis and the farming communities The farmers were an important factor in the Nazis rise. They were in favor of Hitler whose ideas were similar to the Kaiser`s. He introduced measures to help them: - The Reich Food Estate, under Richard Darre: It gave peasant farmers a guaranteed market, it set up central boards to buy Agricultural produce and distribute their goods to markets across Germany. -The Reich Entailed Farm Law: ● Protection to peasant farms. ● Racial aim: "blood and soil " ● Not popular with everyone. ● Banks stopped lending money to them.

Big business and the middle classes ● The communist threat to the middle classes business was eliminated by the Nazis. ● Despite Hitler's promises, the large department stores which were taking business away from local shops were not closed. ● The middle classes started liking the Nazis. ● It was big businesses that really benefited from Nazis. ● The big companies no longer had to worry about troublesome trade unions and strikes. This image show how the middle class people look like in Germany.
