Nazi Germany

Who, what, when, where, why

The Nazi party was created in Germany in 1920 shortly after WW1. Hitler became the chancellor in 1933 promising to help Germany get out of debt and increase the strength of the company with his National Socialist views. The Nazi Party was democratically voted into power. There is much controversy on Nazi Germany because the power of Germany increased but at what cost?

Nazi Germany's perspective

Propaganda had been spread by the Nazi government to make it look like the Nazi party was doing a good thing for the people. The unemployment rate looked like it was going down, It seemed as if the economy was going up. It looked like a promising future for the citizens of Nazi Germany. Some people even have savings that would lead to them owning a Volkswagen car.

American Perspective

We didn't exactly know what Germany was up to. We didn't know if the lowering employment rate was truly going down. We just knew that they were rising to power and with vengeance in their mind. We knew that they became our enemies through WW2. We didn't even know about the Holocaust until after the war and after the collapse of Nazi Germany.

Nazi Germany Media

The media in Nazi Germany was strictly regulated by the Nazi Government. Thousands of books in the libraries were pulled because the government thought they weren't fit for the public. It was a way to keep the citizens in check. It made sure they couldn't make their own independent thoughts that could contradict the views of the Nazi government.

Historical Criticism

Historical Criticism plays a huge roles. The government regulation would be a lot harder to pull nowadays especially with the internet. The German citizens didn't know about the Concentration Camps that could've been exposed much more quickly with modern day technology. With the technology that we have today, videos and photos would've leaked the truth and the citizens could've made their independent thoughts.

Feminist Criticism

Feminist criticism plays a role because women were seen as less than men. Women were not counted in the unemployment rates. Women were not treated the same as men even though the era of Nazi Germany was in the same era as the rising importance of women. The Nazi government paid less attention to women because they wanted a "stronger" country and men were seen as stronger.
