Political Party:The National Socialist (Nazi) Party.

Adolf Hitler

Political Positions:He had nationalistic and racist beliefs, and he was anti-Semetist. He believed Germans belonged to a superior "master race" of Aryans, and that Jews were the greatest enemies. He thought of Jews not only as just another religion, but as another race.

Use of Paramilitary:Hitler used his paramilitary - the Nazis - to fight the growing Communist insurgency that was taking over Germany. He also used the Nazis to carry out violent acts against Jews.

Early Successes and Failures:-On Nov. 8, 1923, Hitler's attempt to seize power in Munich failed, and he was arrested for treason.-Hitler's uprising in power in Germany was greatly assisted by the Great Depression. Nazi membership grew to almost 1 million as unemployment rose. This appealed to veterans, workers, lower middle classes, small-town Germans, and business people.

How Hitler came to power:Hitler began his rise to power in 1919 as a result of his skills in speaking, organization and promotion. His willingness to use violence in advancing his political objectives and to recruit party members also helped his rise. The release of his book Mein Kampf introduced Hitler to a wider audience. In the mid-1920s, Hitler participated as a speaker and organizer in electoral batles. Through the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Nazis gathered enough electoral support to become the largest political party in the Reichstag.

Origin: Hitler was born in Braunau, Austria. By the time WWI started in 1914, Hitler lived in Germany and served in the German Army. He did not finish high school, and he was rejected by art school. Ever since his early childhood, Hitler had been obsessed with war, and he was especially obsessed with Germany's victory in the Franco-Prussian War.
