Rise to Power
Hitler made an anti-smoking campaign that spread around the country. He insisted that all Germans should not have anything that could be intoxicating or unclean. Most of this came from his own diet. Hitler never smoked, drank alcohol or ate meat. Nazis were all about racial hygiene as well. New laws were put in place that said it was illegal for a Jewish and non-Jewish person to get married. Hitler also went after children and adults with disabilities, both physical and mental. There was later a program that killed disabled adults. During the years 1939-1945, Nazis killed around 14 million people, 6 million being Jewish people. Jews were 2/3 of the country's population. Nazis also killed Poles, communists, and homosexuals. Hitler never once visited a concentration camp.
In 1938, Hitler was named Time Magazines "Man of the Year" for signing the Munich agreement. This agreement reversed part of the Treaty of Versailles. The Treaty of Versailles ended the war between Nazi Germany and the Allied Powers (Great Britain, France, Soviet Union,US, and China). He did not obey the agreement. Germany invaded Poland on September 1. Britain and France were now in war against Germany. Hitler also invaded Scandinavia and France. He also invaded Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Hitler bombed the UK and became allies with Japan and Italy. They became known as the Axis Powers.
When Hitler bombed Pearl Harbor, he started a nasty war with the worlds biggest empire and the worlds greatest financial power, and the worlds largest army. The UK, US, and the Soviet Union. The German army started to fall apart around 1942. Everything went downhill from there. Hitler's health was starting to drop, and so was the money used to support the army. Many people decided that they were going to lose, but Hitler denied them. His denial ended up destroying the country.
Hitler finally came to his senses when he heard that an Italian dictator had been assassinated. From fear of being captured by the enemy, Hitler married Eva Braun, his girlfriend, and they committed suicide together. On May 7, 1945, Germany surrendered and the war was over.
