Since the country was in economic chaos after the war because Germany was forced to pay billions in damages. The Germans saw hope in Hitler. In the late 1920 s, the depression hit which made the situation even worse. Hitler in his speeches blamed the Jews and Communists for their misfortunes and many listened. Unemployment was very high at that time, standing at about 25%. Hitler also spoke out against the unfairness of the Versailles Treaty. Germany lost a lot of its territory. He believed the pure Arian race was destined to rule the world. He preached that all Germans must unite in order for this goal to succeed. Hitler publicly stated his views on the Jews, the Jews of Germany did not see Hitler as a great threat at first. However, when Hitler became chancellor and eventually

took over totally they changed their mind. The first thing he did was to take the Jews their right to vote. Soon they were not allowed to hold positions such as teachers, doctors or lawyers. How did Hitler get the Germans to like him? Many looked for answers and hope. Hitler was an answer to them. He promised to rebuild the Glorious Germany of the past. First, he started to build up the Wehrmacht. Germany was not allowed to have more than 100,000 men in its army, but Hitler broke the treaty and gave orders to increase that number. Factories started putting out weapons and people now had jobs. To the Germans this was a very good sign. Little did they know that they would be at war soon. At first, the Allies did nothing about the fact that Hitler broke the Treaty. He gave speeches

in which he indicated that the German people needed living space. He marched into the Reihnland, an area Germany lost in WWI. Next, he moved into Austria, his home country and gained power without a shot being fired. Following Austria, he wanted control of the Sudetenland, a part of Czechoslovakia, which was mainly German speaking. The allies did not want another war so they let Hitler do what he wanted to, but when he attacked Poland on September 1, 1939 the allies no longer stood by and watched. Britain and France declared war on Germany a few days after later, World War II began. After Germany s army conquered and occupied a territory. the Gestapo quickly followed. They would round up Jews, Communists, Gypsies, Homosexuals and other enemies of the German people. They would

then be put on trains. They were sent to concentration camps. Camps such as Auschwitz, Treblinka, Bergen Belsen were all equipped with gas chambers to make the killing process quick. In those camps 6 million Jews and many others were killed by the Nazis. Hitler’s army seemed unstoppable but in the end, the allies managed to win many decisive battles. Eventually on, April 30th, 1945 Hitler committed suicide in his bunker by shooting himself in the mouth, with his new wife Eva Braun. Their bodies were burned, but no one knows what happened to the “Fuhrer’s” and his wife of one day’s ashes. On May 7, 1945, Germany surrendered unconditionally. Hitler was one of the most, if not the most cruel man to ever walk the face of the earth. His belief of the “Arian” race being

the superior race made him hate all others. He thought of blacks as being “Sub-human.” Most of all he hated the Jews. So much that in early 1945, when equipment and manpower was badly needed on the front Hitler insisted on man and equipment staying and continuing to transport Jews to the camps. In his testament (will), he left his money to his family. He also left a message to the Germany people, “Above all I charge the leaders of the nation and those under them to scrupulous observance of the laws of race and to merciless opposition to the universal prisoner of all peoples, international Jewry.” The only people which would be spared where the Scandinavians to the north, since they were closely related to the German race.
