What Was The Type of Government
- Totalitarian Dictatorship is a form of government, where a country is ruled by one person who forces his way to power, and ensures that the person’s power remains.
- In a Totalitarian dictatorship, all of the power is only in 1 person.
- In this case Germany was led by the Nazi party, and the Nazi party was lead by Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was originally voted as chancellor but eventually, he became a dictator.
- Hitler was not fair to the people. He alone ruled the country and that is what made him a dictator. So even though Adolf Hitler and the Nazis were voted for by the people, the Nazi Party developed into a Dictatorship because Hitler was not fair to the people.
What Was The Life Of The People Like?
- The Jewish Germans were taken to concentration camps.
- The people in Germany were fairly happy but the natives of the countries that were conquered by the Germans did not get to eat anything except bread and anything else they could find. The life of the Jews in the countries they conquered was very bad, because they were sent to worse concentration camps. Roads were guarded with Nazi soldiers and the people had no freedom.
- Jewish people were subjected to a lifestyle of fear, and starvation. People were not allowed to leave the country if they were caught trying to escape they would be killed. Most Jewish people were sent to concentration camps where they would be killed or tortured.
Was There Freedom In The Society?
- The Jewish people in the country were not free at all, because the Nazis believed that it was the Jews fault that Germany lost in World War 1. The other people, who were not Jews, were not allowed to say anything negative against the Nazis in public. There was no freedom. All of the Germans lived in fear and they could not access many things that others could such as butter and sweets. Germany as a whole was not free, especially the Jews.
- There were no pleasures. There was fear of LIFE, starvation, and death. People were not allowed to leave, they were not allowed to be Jewish and they were killed for being Jewish, even the non Jewish Germans were scared of Hitler’s plans.
As and outsider, what can we learn from this?
- We can learn that people that take power that actually have immense political intelligence, and that many political difficulties are caused by many groups of people like the Nazis, or by individual people like hitler.
- The Nazis were a political party that the people voted for, we can learn not to trust everything politicians say, Hitler told his plans in a joking manner like a politicians do today. Hitler did this to make people laugh, and when he made people laugh with racist and prejudice jokes, they voted for him because he was different. He believed that the Jews were the reason that Germany lost the First World War which turned people against the Jewish Germans.
- We can also learn that voting for the right person is important. The people voted for Hitler and eventually he became a dictator because he did not treat the people fairly and Jews were seen as the people that caused Germany to lose the First World War. Now we know the importance of good leaders. If the leader isn't a good one, the country will go through issues.
