[2015] Declan Giltz: The rise of the fuhrer









Hitler tries to inspire a coup in Munich, but he fails and is arrested.

The Rise of the Führer

Hitler replaces Anton Drexler as the newly named NSDAP (or the Nazi Party) chairman.

Hitler was born in Braunau, a small town in Austria, close to the German border. His father was Alois Hitler, and his mother was Klara Hitler. Klara was her husband’s second cousin. She was the maid to Alois before being his wife. Hitler loved and adored her mother but he disliked his father because he was a harsh demanding man. In 1899 the Hitler family moved to a small village near the town of Linz. Hitler did very well in school. He enjoyed art, poetry, and music. Hitler wanted to become an artist but Alois, his father, denied it not wanting that for his son. He started to rebel his father and teachers so he could study the subjects he loved. Hitler’s father died in 1903 when Hitler was fourteen. He convinced his mother to let him quit school. He began a love for Richard Wagner after he quit school because he would walk around the streets of Linz, visiting the library, opera, and theater. He spent a lot of time listening to Richard Wagner whose operas were full of gods and goddesses from old German legends. At 18 Hitler traveled to Vienna, Austria. He applied with an entrance exam to get into the academy of fine arts. His work was considered not good enough to gain him admittance. Hitler’s mom died of cancer in 1907, which was heart breaking for him. He tried to get in the academy of fine arts again in in 1908 but was again rejected.

Adolf enlisted in the Sixteenth Bavarian Infantry regiment at age 25. He avoided joining the Austrian army because he didn’t want to serve with any Jew because he wanted to feel superior to them, instead of being equal. He achieved 3 awards: The Iron Cross, and 1st and 2nd place in his division. He was injured twice. The first time, he nearly died in the trenches from poisonous gases. The second time, he was rushed to the German hospital immediately because he was impaled with a tiny shell fragment in his leg during the Battle of Somme. He was a very unusual soldier, as some people thought. He was sloppy and unmilitarily bearing, but he was always willing to put up a fight and he was willing to volunteer for any dangerous task. After 5 years of failure in the war, he realized he wanted to pursue a career in politics. He wanted to be the leader of Germany so he could save them from fear.

1-To eradicate and eliminate the Treaty of Versailles, after WWI2-To unify Germany and its people under his rule to forge a stronger nation out of Germany3-To conquer and control the lands of Eastern Europe to expand his empire of powerHitler was a German soldier who fought in WWI. The war ended when the Treaty of Versailles was dubbed on June 28th, 1919. As a result of the treaty, Germany was in a huge amount of debt, was stripped of its colonies, and even its military power and forces. Once Hitler had his mind set on bringing Germany back to power, he started his conquest for control of Germany. But with the Treaty of Versailles intact, it would be near impossible for him to do so. Hitler came to power when he became chancellor in January 30th, 1933. Now, his intentions would be heard, adored, and begin to be obeyed by the German citizens. Hitler was an incredible speaker at the time and claimed the hearts and minds of Germany. He wanted to unite them into what he describes as a, “Better Germany.” He told them how whether they are poor or rich, they must help Germany. He would rant on the nation’s suffering during its depression. He would even preach that God wanted Germany to rise above the rest of the world. His intentions seemed mad, but his speeches were very convincing. As Hitler wanted to unify Germany and its people, he desired his empire to expand its power. He issued orders to penetrate the lands in Eastern Europe. On August 31st, 1939, under Adolf’s directive, German Nazi soldiers invaded Poland and broke the peace pact provided by the Treaty of Versailles, resulting in the beginning of World War II. Other countries such as Russia, France, and Czechoslovakia were soon to follow.

Someone Named Eva Summary This book, about the child life of what was considered a perfect German girl, tells a different view of the holocaust. Instead of a view from a Jewish person it is in the view of a “perfect Aryan” child who was born into a Czech family. She was later, at the age of 11, taken away from her family, but since she had blonde hair and blue eyes she was kept alive to be converted to a perfect German Nazi. Hitler and his power connect our book to this glog. In the book it shows how people of non-German heritage were converted to Nazi Germans. Someone named Eva also portrays the German people’s thoughts of Hitler and how people really loved and respected him. His power brain washed people to believe in something incredibly bad. In our glog we show in what ways he was powerful in political and military life.

Hitler invades Poland, officially starting WWII.

Adolf Hitler's Goals

Hitler's Early Life

Rise of the Nazi Party

After World War I in 1918 Hitler became a V-man for Germany. His job was to visit as many offices organizations as he could and identify their beliefs (right-wing, left-wing, socialists, communists, or centre-politics.) to see if they were a threat to Germany. He was also in charge of lecturing soldiers on Communism, Socialism, and Pacifism. Through this he learned he was a great public speaker. The gas-attacks gave his voice a strange unique sound and many people said they were “hypnotized” by the sound. This would prove to be very helpful in the future. In 1919 Hitler checked the German Workers’ Party. It turned out to be an extreme anti-Semitic, anti-communist, right-wing nationalist party. Since it had only 40 members Hitler informed the army that it held no threat to Germany. Afterwards he joined the party since it stood for almost everything he believed in. After Hitler joined he quickly became the propaganda officer. In 1920 the party changed it’s name to the National Socialist German Workers’ party or NSDAP (In German its Nazionale socialistiche deutsche arbaits partai.) This quickly became called Nazi by both supporters and enemies. Though the party had many strong supporters it was still small. However one of the worst events that happened in Germany helped the Nazi party the most. Hyperinflation. One of the deals of the Versailles Treaty was that Germany had to pay give the winning countries money. To do this the German government started to print as much money as possible. This lead to a dramatic decrease in their currencies worth. Bread used to cost one mark but due to hyperinflation it became worth 1 million marks. Most of the people’s life savings became worthless. Many people became angry at the government and the Nazi party used this to become more popular. Still this was not enough. The new party leader Adolf Hitler planned on taking over the city of Munich and with the help of the middle-classes’ anger at the government take over Germany. This failed disastrously. As they marched towards the Munich Beer Hall they were met by armed police and attacked. Hitler was arrested, charged with treason, and put in prison with a small 5 year sentence. However this only made Hitler more famous. While in prison Hitler wrote a book called Mein Kampf (My struggle) and realized that if he wanted his party to be taken seriously he would have to stop using violence and breaking the law. However during 1924-1929 the party was weak, mainly because the government had fixed the hyperinflation problem and as a result the people were happy with the government.
