The Rise of Adolf Hitler By: Shana Hill

January 30, 1933

Dear Diary, Today Adolf Hitler was appointed as the chancellor of Germany. I am very happy that he was elected. I am also very excited to see what he has in store for our country. He has promised us many good things. He said that he would give us better jobs for the unemployed and a better market for farmers basically that he would get us out of the mess we are in. He has won me over and i cant wait to see all the great things he will do for us.

June 30, 1934

Dear Diary, Today there was news of an event named "The night of long knives" This event was said to be done by Hitler. I really cant believe he would do such a terrible thing. I heard that he killed members of his own political party if her feared that someday they would become enemies or g against him in any way. this just doesn't seem like something he would do. I am beginning to question his motives. I hope Hitler doesn't continue to kill people for no good reason. I still have faith that he is going to be a wise leader and do good things for Germany.

Dear Diary, Today our previous president Hindenburg passed away so now Hitler will take his place as Fuhrer (leader) of Germany. I am a little skeptical of Adolf Hitler now that I've been hearing about some of the things hes doing but still i have hope that he will fulfill his promises for Germany. At this point he is our only hope to turn this mess around.

Dear diary, Today Hitler released the Nuremberg laws. I don't agree with all the things that go into these laws. I think that if us Germans want to marry Jews we should be allowed to and our fuhrer shouldn't have anything to say about it. The more and more i hear about Hitler the less i like him and am kinda getting scared as to what is gonna happen in the near future.
