Kristian Stewart 10.3 How did Hitler and the nazi's change Germany between 1933 and 1939? A lot of Hitler's success is put down to a Dr Josef Goebbles who was in charge of "enlightenment and propaganda". Goebbles had been with Hitler all the way through the campaign and was an intelligent person using techniques that are still used in politics today and he used every resource available to him. He would organise rallies, marches, torchlight processions, meetings act. A good example of a rally is the Nuremberg rally witch happened once a year in the summer. There were bands, marches, flying displays and there were Hitler speeches. These were to show that the Nazis were new and exiting. They emphasised the power of the state and showed order. Another benefit came from these rallies as they showed that "every other German supported the Nazis" and encouraged people to support them. Once Hitler had passed the enabling act in 1933 and he had complete control over Germany he changed the law so that Goebbles could do whatever he liked. Goebbles did this. ...read more.


In the broadcasts speeches and ideas were repeated over and over again. Basically in Germany then there was propaganda everywhere and because Hitler had complete power there was no controlling or competing with it. Propaganda was an every day event for ordinary Germans and so the things the propaganda said also became everyday occurrences. Anyone who started to look through the propaganda would be taken away to the concentration camps. Although everyone was susceptible to propaganda the youth were particularly susceptible to it, and being more susceptible to it they were exposed to more of it. As well as being easier targets they were also the future of Germany (which Hitler mentioned his speeches). If he could get a generation on his side then it wouldn't matter what happened to the older people because all youngsters loyal to him would be a stronger force. They also made up the future army and if Hitler wanted a good army then he should start the training while the children were still young. So he did this. He had his main weapon to do this with (propaganda), but he also had a bonus added on to this, which was school. ...read more.


As time went on more and more youths stopped going to the Hitler youth organisations and eventually it became the thing to do. These people would listen to banned music and sing English or American songs. Nazi Germany was a very male dominated society (the Nazi views that a women's place was at the home bringing up children). So all the important jobs went to men. From what I have written you can see that Nazi Germany was a very different place from that of other countries. Hitler used propaganda to get support from people in Germany. Women were not treated as well as men and did not have as many rights as that of men. The Nazi's hated the Jews and blamed them for many of Germany's problems, through this the people in Germany were educated to hate Jews. If you were a person with an Aryan race you would have been one of the best Germans as described before. Germany in a way was a place of many rules, if you were different you were killed, if you supported someone other than Hitler and the nazi's you would be punished, you were expected to be the future army of Germany if you were a child. ...read more.
