During the hard economic times in Germany, this was a strong. France during World War II by Nazi Germany was a multi-pronged attack that was built on a combination of swift and prolonged attacks of psychologic and combative violence. The spread of information through newspapers and radios was crucial to the morality and organization of the people and the Resistance and thus a primary target of the Nazis.
Germany pulled the puppet strings of. Holocaust, various forms of propaganda were infused into everyday aspects of life for the German citizens. The Nazi Party used many of these forms to target the many differing citizens of Germany to believe in the Nazi ideology. These forms of propaganda included books, films, newspapers, rallies, radio broadcastings, etc.
All of these forms of propaganda were either created or altered by the Nazi Party for the sole purpose of manipulating the ordinary German citizens into hating their Jewish friends. The discrimination of athletes leads me to the Totalitarian regime of Adolf Hitler in Nazi Germany who severely discriminated non-Aryan athletes. Introduction The horrors of Nazi Germany have been widely discussed throughout history.
From concentration camps, gas chambers, to ghettos, the reign of the Third Reich showed to be a dark time for humanity. However, years had passed before the horrors of Nazi Germany were brought to light. One program that has still been left in the dark has been The Lebensborn Program. Throughout the last few decades participants in the Lebensborn Program have come forward to discuss the treatment they received.
The rise of a united Nazi Germany is known as the most costly ascendant of power in the history of humanity. Germany suffering defeat in World War I, provoked the rise of a powerful united Nazi country which in turn led to World War II, the Holocaust, and great influence left on the next generation of German youth.
The rise of the notoriously known Nazi Party was caused by Germany suffering defeat in World War 1 in To what extent could Nazi Germany be considered a totalitarian state in the period ? From Hitler's election to power in January , Nazi Germany although exhibiting totalitarian elements lacked some required factors to characterize it fully as a totalitarian state. Top-quality high schools for girls had existed since the s, and German universities were opened to women at the beginning of the 20th century.
Many German women became teachers, lawyers, doctors, journalists and novelists. In , German women got the vote. By , women, of whom there were millions more than men — Berlin had 1, women for every 1, men — voted in roughly the same percentages as men for Hitler and National Socialist candidates. Most of the essay writers express distaste with some aspect of the political system.
Far from it. Not one man made a sound, they stayed dead quiet. These essays were originally collected by an assistant professor at Columbia University, Theodore Abel, who organised an essay contest with generous prizes with the cooperation of the Nazi Propaganda Ministry. Of nearly essays, roughly 30 were written by women, and Abel set them aside, explaining in a footnote that he intended to examine them separately.
But he never did. In only about an eighth of the cases was anti-Semitism the prime ideological concern, although two-thirds of the essays revealed some form of dislike of Jews. Almost a fifth were motivated by the Hitler cult alone, attracted by the man himself, but the essays reveal differences between men and women in the reason for the enthrallment with the Nazi leader.
For men, the cult of personality appears to center around Hitler as a strong leader charging toward a Germany which defined itself by those it excluded. Another woman replaced the star on her Christmas tree with a photograph of Hitler surrounded by a halo of candles.
The essays do not only serve as historical curios, but as a warning as to how ordinary people can be attracted to extremist ideology at a time of social distress.
This was partly because Hitler, who had no administrative ability, left the party organisation to the head of the secretariat, Philipp Bouhler , the party treasurer Franz Xaver Schwarz and business manager Max Amann. The party had a capable propaganda head in Gregor Strasser , who was promoted to national organizational leader in January These men gave the party efficient recruitment and organizational structures.
As Hitler became the recognised head of the German nationalists, other groups declined or were absorbed. Despite these strengths, the Nazi Party might never have come to power had it not been for the Great Depression and its effects on Germany.
By , the German economy was beset with mass unemployment and widespread business failures. The Social Democrats and Communists were bitterly divided and unable to formulate an effective solution: this gave the Nazis their opportunity and Hitler's message, blaming the crisis on the Jewish financiers and the Bolsheviks , resonated with wide sections of the electorate. Hitler proved to be a highly effective campaigner, pioneering the use of radio and aircraft for this purpose.
His dismissal of Strasser and his appointment of Goebbels as the party's propaganda chief were major factors. While Strasser had used his position to promote his own leftish version of national socialism, Goebbels was totally loyal to Hitler and worked only to improve Hitler's image. The inability of the democratic parties to form a united front, the self-imposed isolation of the Communists and the continued decline of the economy, all played into Hitler's hands.
He now came to be seen as de facto leader of the opposition and donations poured into the Nazi Party's coffers. Some major business figures, such as Fritz Thyssen , were Nazi supporters and gave generously  and some Wall Street figures were allegedly involved,  [ page needed ] but many other businessmen were suspicious of the extreme nationalist tendencies of the Nazis and preferred to support the traditional conservative parties instead.
During and into , Germany's political crisis deepened. By now the SA had , members and its running street battles with the SPD and Communist paramilitaries who also fought each other reduced some German cities to combat zones.
Paradoxically, although the Nazis were among the main instigators of this disorder, part of Hitler's appeal to a frightened and demoralised middle class was his promise to restore law and order. Overt antisemitism was played down in official Nazi rhetoric, but was never far from the surface.
Germans voted for Hitler primarily because of his promises to revive the economy by unspecified means , to restore German greatness and overturn the Treaty of Versailles and to save Germany from communism. Since both parties opposed the established political system and neither would join or support any ministry, this made the formation of a majority government impossible. The result was weak ministries governing by decree. Under Comintern directives, the Communists maintained their policy of treating the Social Democrats as the main enemy, calling them " social fascists ", thereby splintering opposition to the Nazis.
Chancellor Franz von Papen called another Reichstag election in November, hoping to find a way out of this impasse. However, support for the Nazis had fallen to The Nazis interpreted the result as a warning that they must seize power before their moment passed. Had the other parties united, this could have been prevented, but their shortsightedness made a united front impossible.
Papen, his successor Kurt von Schleicher and the nationalist press magnate Alfred Hugenberg spent December and January in political intrigues that eventually persuaded President Hindenburg that it was safe to appoint Hitler as Reich Chancellor, at the head of a cabinet including only a minority of Nazi ministers—which he did on 30 January In Mein Kampf , Hitler directly attacked both left-wing and right-wing politics in Germany.
The votes that the Nazis received in the elections established the Nazi Party as the largest parliamentary faction of the Weimar Republic government. Hitler was appointed as Chancellor of Germany on 30 January The Reichstag fire on 27 February gave Hitler a pretext for suppressing his political opponents. The following day he persuaded the Reich's President Paul von Hindenburg to issue the Reichstag Fire Decree , which suspended most civil liberties.
After the election, hundreds of thousands of new members joined the party for opportunistic reasons, most of them civil servants and white-collar workers. On 23 March, the parliament passed the Enabling Act of , which gave the cabinet the right to enact laws without the consent of parliament. In effect, this gave Hitler dictatorial powers.
Now possessing virtually absolute power, the Nazis established totalitarian control as they abolished labour unions and other political parties and imprisoned their political opponents, first at wilde Lager , improvised camps, then in concentration camps. Nazi Germany had been established, yet the Reichswehr remained impartial. Nazi power over Germany remained virtual, not absolute. During June and July , all competing parties were either outlawed or dissolved themselves and subsequently the Law against the founding of new parties of 14 July legally established the Nazi Party's monopoly.
On 1 December , the Law to secure the unity of party and state entered into force, which was the base for a progressive intertwining of party structures and state apparatus. Effectively, they lost most of their power to the Gaue that were originally just regional divisions of the party, but took over most competencies of the state administration in their respective sectors. The purge was executed by the SS, assisted by the Gestapo and Reichswehr units. Aside from Strasserist Nazis, they also murdered anti-Nazi conservative figures like former chancellor Kurt von Schleicher.
Officially, the Third Reich lasted only 12 years. The war in Europe had come to an end. Between and , the Nazi Party led regime, assisted by collaborationist governments and recruits from occupied countries, was responsible for the deaths of at least eleven million people,   including 5.
The National Socialist Programme was a formulation of the policies of the party. It contained 25 points and is therefore also known as the "point plan" or "point programme". It was the official party programme, with minor changes, from its proclamation as such by Hitler in , when the party was still the German Workers' Party, until its dissolution.
All other party offices were subordinate to his position and had to depend on his instructions. They held power and influence comparable to the Reich Ministers' in Hitler's Cabinet. Unlike a Gauleiter , a Reichsleiter did not have individual geographic areas under their command, but were responsible for specific spheres of interest. The Nazi Party had a number of party offices dealing with various political and other matters. These included:. In addition to the Nazi Party proper, several paramilitary groups existed which "supported" Nazi aims.
All members of these paramilitary organisations were required to become regular Nazi Party members first and could then enlist in the group of their choice. Foreign volunteers of the Waffen-SS were also not required to be members of the Nazi Party, although many joined local nationalist groups from their own countries with the same aims.
Police officers, including members of the Gestapo , frequently held SS rank for administrative reasons known as "rank parity" and were likewise not required to be members of the Nazi Party. A vast system of Nazi Party paramilitary ranks developed for each of the various paramilitary groups. This was part of the process of Gleichschaltung with the paramilitary and auxiliary groups swallowing existing associations and federations after the Party was flooded by millions of membership applications.
The Hitler Youth was a paramilitary group divided into an adult leadership corps and a general membership open to boys aged fourteen to eighteen. The League of German Girls was the equivalent group for girls. Certain nominally independent organisations had their own legal representation and own property, but were supported by the Nazi Party. Many of these associated organisations were labour unions of various professions.
Some were older organisations that were nazified according to the Gleichschaltung policy after the takeover. The employees of large businesses with international operations such as Deutsche Bank , Dresdner Bank , and Commerzbank were mostly party members.
It was regionally sub-divided into a number of Gaue singular: Gau headed by a Gauleiter , who received their orders directly from Hitler. The name originally a term for sub-regions of the Holy Roman Empire headed by a Gaugraf for these new provincial structures was deliberately chosen because of its mediaeval connotations. The term is approximately equivalent to the English shire. While the Nazis maintained the nominal existence of state and regional governments in Germany itself, this policy was not extended to territories acquired after Even in German-speaking areas such as Austria, state and regional governments were formally disbanded as opposed to just being dis-empowered.
After the Anschluss a new type of administrative unit was introduced called a Reichsgau. In these territories the Gauleiters also held the position of Reichsstatthalter , thereby formally combining the spheres of both party and state offices. The establishment of this type of district was subsequently carried out for any further territorial annexations of Germany both before and during World War II.
Even the former territories of Prussia were never formally re-integrated into what was then Germany's largest state after being re-taken in the Polish campaign. The Gaue and Reichsgaue state or province were further sub-divided into Kreise counties headed by a Kreisleiter , which were in turn sub-divided into Zellen cells and Blocken blocks , headed by a Zellenleiter and Blockleiter respectively. A reorganisation of the Gaue was enacted on 1 October The given numbers were the official ordering numbers.
The statistics are from , for which the Gau organisation of that moment in time forms the basis. The table below uses the organizational structure that existed before its dissolution in More information on the older Gaue is in the second table. Simple re-namings of existing Gaue without territorial changes is marked with the initials RN in the column "later became". The numbering is not based on any official former ranking, but merely listed alphabetically. The irregular Swiss branch of the Nazi Party also established a number of Party Gaue in that country, most of them named after their regional capitals.
Gallen , Thurgau and Appenzell. The general membership of the Nazi Party mainly consisted of the urban and rural lower middle classes. In , the number had risen to 11,, reflecting the party's growth in this period.
When it came to power in , the Nazi Party had over 2 million members. In , the membership total rose to 5. Nazi members with military ambitions were encouraged to join the Waffen-SS, but a great number enlisted in the Wehrmacht and even more were drafted for service after World War II began.
Early regulations required that all Wehrmacht members be non-political and any Nazi member joining in the s was required to resign from the Nazi Party. However, this regulation was soon waived and full Nazi Party members served in the Wehrmacht in particular after the outbreak of World War II. The British historian Richard J. Evans wrote that junior officers in the army were inclined to be especially zealous National Socialists with a third of them having joined the Nazi Party by Reinforcing the work of the junior leaders were the National Socialist Leadership Guidance Officers, which were created with the purpose of indoctrinating the troops for the "war of extermination" against Soviet Russia.
The National Socialist Women's League was the women's organisation of the party and by it had approximately 2 million members. The organisation was limited only to so-called " Imperial Germans " citizens of the German Empire ; and "Ethnic Germans" Volksdeutsche , who did not hold German citizenship were not permitted to join. Deutsche Gemeinschaft was a branch of the Nazi Party founded in , created for Germans with Volksdeutsche status.
