The Rise of Adolf Hitler By: foster roach

January 30, 1933

On this day, Hitler was announced as the chancellor of Germany. I voted for and I believe he was going to be great. I think that he is going to do an exceptional job for our country. What he has promised us sounds like a very good life. He said that he would provide us better jobs for the unemployed and a better market for farmers so he would get us out of the mess we are in. He has won me over and I can’t wait to see all the great things he will provide.

Today, there was a news alert of an event named "The night of long knives.” This event was said to be performed by Hitler. I really undoubtedly believe he would do such a terrible thing. I heard that he killed members of his own political party because he feared that someday they would become enemies or rebel against him in any way. This 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 valid reason. I still have faith that he is going to be a wise leader and do great things for Germany.

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

Today Hitler released the Nuremberg laws. I do not agree with all the things that are included in these laws. I think that if we, Germans, want to marry Jews we should be allowed to. The further things I hear about Hitler the less I prefer him as leader. I am also scared as to what is going to occur in the near future with Hitler as leader.
