Hitler and His Political Views
Adolf Hitler was born in Austria on April 20, 1889.
He failed secondary school and moved to Vienna to become an artist at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts... he was rejected by the academy.
In Vienna he developed his basic ideas. Racism was at the hearts of these ideas particularly against the Jews (anti-Semitism). Hitler was also an extreme nationalist who understood how to use propaganda (media) to invoke terror.
Hitler served on the western front of WWl for 4 years. Hitler decided to enter politics in 1919 and joined tu3 German Worker's Party. In 1921 Hitler had taken control of the party and renamed it the National Socialist Workers' Party (NSDAP) or Nazi for short.
Within 2 years of Hitler's takeover the party had grown to 55, 000 members.
Hitler staged an armed uprising against the German government in Munich. This uprising happened in November of 1923. This uprising is called the Beer Hall Putsch. Hitler was quickly beaten and sentenced to prison.
While in prison Hitler wrote Mein Kampf or "my struggle" , this is an account of the basic ideas of his movement.Hitler believed that superior nations had the right to Lebensraum or "living space".

The Nuremberg laws were two laws excluding Jews from German life, the first law Reichsburgergesetz (Law of the Reich Citizen) deprives Jews from German citizenship. The second law Gesetz zum Schutze des Deutschen Blutes und der Deutschen Ehre ( Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor) forbid the sexual relations and marriage between German Blood and Jews. It also forbid the employment of Jewish maids. The law does not permit Jews to even raise the German flag. Because of the law Jews could not hold public office, vote, considered citizens of the Reich. The laws also stated that Jews must wear a yellow star of david with a red J (short for Jude). There were also stores and other public places that had “No Jews allowed” signs.
The Kristallnacht (Night of Broken Glass) starting on November 9th German citizens target Synagogues, Jewish Stores, and other places Jewish people went to. Every place Jewish families occupied were burned.
