Transcript of Nazism

NAZISM Definition:
a unique variety of fascism that involved biological racism and anti-Semitism Adolf Hitler became the leader of the Nazi party on July 29, 1921. Hitler developed his political theories after observing the policies of Austria-Hungary. He was born as a citizen of the Empire, and believed that ethnic diversity had weakened it. Furthermore, he saw democracy as a destabilizing force, because it placed power in the hands of ethnic minorities, whom he claimed had incentives to further "weaken and destabilize" the Empire.
The swastika is a symbol that has been used for over 3000 years. Until the Nazis used this symbol, it was used to represent the life sun, good luck, power, and strength. In 1920, Adolf Hitler decided that the Nazi Party needed its own insignia and flag.
For Hitler, the new flag had to be "a symbol of struggle" as well as "highly effective as a poster."
On August 7, 1920, at the Salzburg Congress, the swastika became the official emblem of the Nazi Party In 1925 Hitler published Mein Kampf (My Struggle) which outlined the Nazi Party goals. Nazi Germany
Hitler's appointment as Chancellor of Germany in January, 1933 marked the beginning of Nazi Germany. Key Elements of Nazism
Anti-Parliamentarism, ethnic nationalism, racism, collectivism, eugenics, antisemitism, opposition to economic liberalism, anti-communism, and totalitarianism. Nazism gained strength due to German anger at the Treaty of Versailles and what was considered to have been a Jewish/communist conspiracy to humiliate Germany at the end of World War I. The Nuremberg Laws proclaimed by Hitler in 1935 provided the legal basis for systematic persecution of Jews. Since the end of World War 2 in 1945, the Nazi
Party was declared a criminal organization by
the Allied Powers Nazism has been outlawed as a political ideology in Germany since 1945. By Nikki Cooley
