Why were the Nazis popular?

Extracts from this document...


Why were the Nazi's popular? The main reason that the Nazi's became popular is because of their leader Hitler. Hitler was brilliant speaker. His audience liked him because he had a booming voice, hypnotic eyes and fearful temper. Hitler held huge meeting or mass rallies. At first people thought Hitler was a very strong character- in the end he turns out to be amazingly strong! Also, that he is a kind-hearted person as he is risking his life for others.
