What they do ...

Adults where expected to tell people if they disagreed with Hitler's beliefs, but it was dangerous for a citizen to go against a man with so much power or the government. Over 5,000 people where on trial for making jokes about Hitler or listening to British radio under the third rich law. This party controlled everything from news, media, armed forces, police, judicial system, communication, travel, and education from kindergarten to college level. They had to watch out for the government to occasionally spied on conversation and the friendships of common people. Telephones where bugged and eavesdropped on, sometimes even mail would be open before actually being delivered.
