Katelyn Gregory Hitler & Nazi Germany Timeline Economic Policies Spectacles & Organizations Women & Nazism Anti-Semitic Policies On April 20, 1889 in Austria, Adolf Hitler was born. Ideas: Hitler was a nationalist who used racism as the basis for his ideas. Allowed them to ignore the constitution for 4 years while also issuing laws to help with the country's problems. Post-WWI: After his service in the war, Hitler stayed in Germany and entered politics and joined the German Workers' Party in 1919. 1921: Hitler took control of the party which had been renamed the National Socialist German Worker's Party (Nazi). 1923: Hitler staged the Beer Hall Putsch uprising against the government, but he was crushed and sent to prison. Prison Life: During his stay in prison, he wrote Mein Kampf (My Struggle) explaining his movement and ideas. Hitler wanted to develop an Aryan racial state and believed that the Germans would create another empire like the Roman Empire and one day dominate the world. Concentration Camps: Prison camps were established for those who opposed the Nazi political party. Hitler realized that the Nazis would have to gain power legally, so they would have to become a mass political party able to compete for votes. Schutzstaffeln (SS): The SS, created as Hitler's bodyguard, played an important role in maintaining order in Germany and used terror and ideology in order to accomplish this. Unemployment: Hitler used public works projects and grants to help decrease the unemployment rate, which helped Hitler and the Nazis become accepted. Women's role: Women in Germany, as in the times of Sparta, were to serve as wives and mothers to the desired race. Hitler's Promises: Germany's economic difficulties allowed for extremist parties to become more popular. Hitler promised to recreate Germany by using national pride, national honor, and traditional militarism to connect to his listeners. Supporters: More and more of the industrial leaders and aristocrats began to look to Hitler for leadership. Then, Hindenburg agreed to allow Hitler to become chancellor. Politics: Under the Nazi power, all other political parties were abolished and only Nazis were accepted. Hindenburg's death: After Hindenburg's death, Hitler became the sole ruler of Germany and all officials and soldiers were required to take an oath of loyalty to announce Hitler as their leader. Institutions: Nuremberg laws: Racial laws that excluded Jews from German citizenship and required Jews to wear a yellow Star of David and carry card saying they were Jewish. Kristallnacht: Nazis burned synagogues and destroyed thousands of Jewish businesses. Also, thousands of Jewish men were taken to concentration camps and the Jews were required to clean the damage up. Post-Kristallnacht: This led to even more. Jews were barred from public transportaion and buildings like schools and hospitals, and they were prohibited from owning and even working in retail stores. Spectacles: Mass demonstrations were used to make Germans an instrument of Hitler's policies. These rallies were very effective.
