1) Choose any one reason from the list and explain how it contributed to Hitler's rise to power. * Hitler's oratory, personality and leadership. Hitler's character was very strong and very charismatic, he looked very confident of himself and by the way he spoke the people (his oratory) made people believe him and change their mind. With any doubt he was an expert in propaganda and he knew exactly how to act to look as a strong leader. Hitler knew that the propaganda was the key to his rise in power and he emphasized extremely this point. He had Dr. Goebells (an outstanding propagandistic) in charge of the Ministry of Propaganda. His belief was; "Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively but must present only that aspect of truth which is favourable to the party" and he would do anything to have the best image of him (and his party) that he could build. ...read more.


Hitler cleverly organised and knew exactly how the events would happen so he could take a step of advantage from his oppositories; he got to every part of the country to advertise as much a possible. He also was cold and calculator, it was needed to goal his aims and be the unique leader of such huge nation, were he could be compared as a god.

He promised that they, (the master race) had the task of governing the whole world, he estimated that that government would last for thousand of years. Germans in such a situation would only have eyes to Hitler, and gradually would turn into their feelings, such anti-Semitism (they were brainwashed). And thanks the communication mediums which constantly that described Hitler of such a hero, it got recorded on German minds, and so, believe it. Hitler become in a figure to appeal, in other words, the propaganda and brainwashing, millions of Germans converted into puppies in service of the Furh�r, and that was what he needed to rise power. In the other hand, we have to say that without the other factors that contributed such the desperate situation, by the poverty in the economic depression, anger produced by Treaty of Versailles etc.., Hitler would never rise to power even with his oratory, personality and leadership. ...read more.
