Reasons for German
Aggression in WWII German Troops March Through Warsaw by Jger Hugo, 1939 (NARA) German troops in
Russia, 1941 (NARA)
Germany felt robbed and wanted to restore their glory. Why did Germany go to War? In order to do that, they had to
get the resources they needed. Versailles Treaty The Versailles Treaty was a peace treaty between Germany and the Allied Powers. Hitler dreamed of building up a vast German Empire. Hitler did not like the Treaty of Versailles. "We are all proud that through God's powerful aid, we have become once more true Germans."
-Adolf Hitler
March 1933 By : April Lewis and Esther Bae 7,060,000 German people were
killed at the end of the war. Hilter was seen as a "visionary leader." The war was based on propaganda (spreading ideas for a cause). He defeated Western Europe and Britain, and was planning to invade Russia. Before he could though, Italy invaded France, and Germany had to help the French. In March 1936, German troops marched into the border region between Germany and France. They did this after the Treaty of Versailles, and in the treaty, it stated that that land was supposed to be free of military forces. Hitler wanted to take over Munich and have the middle class "follow" his path and help him take over Germany Hermann Goering Hitler promoted Goering and made him the:
• minister of the interior
• prime minister of Prussia
• minister of aviation
• head of the Luftwaffe
• head of the German Air Force
and he was practically Hitler's deputy The Aggression of Hitler's Allies 1.) Italy--Mussolini wanted a Fascist-Roman Empire 2.) Japan--Wanted a Nipponese Empire that stretched out to the Pacific The start of World War 2 was mostly
caused by Facsist aggression. In March 1938, Hermann Goering warned all Jews to leave Austria, one of the first steps toward what would become the Nazi Holocaust, which eventually murdered six million European Jews. Joseph Goebbels Joseph Goebbels
• was Hitler’s Minister of Enlightment and Propaganda (appointed in 1933)
• was one of the most important and influential people in Nazi Germany
• had total control of the German press and radio He demanded "total war" from the Germans and in 1944, he was appointed Reich Commissioner for Total Mobilization (Commissioner of the Empire marshalling and organizing for action) He also played an important role in building up hatred for the allied powers. He had little confidence in the abilities of other ministers and made attempts to have some removed from office. Heinrich Himmler Heinrich Himmler was:
• The head of The SS
(The SS was a paramilitary organization responsible for the many crimes against humanity.)
• The head of The Waffen SS
(The Waffen SS were frontline combat troops that were trained to fight in Germany's battles.)
• The head of the Gestapo
(The Gestapo was the security force.)
• The Minister of the Interior • At the end of the war, Himmler made attempts to negotiate peace through the World Jewish Congress
