Thesis StatementThe Nazis were rapidly popular and powerful throughout the 1930s and 1940s.
Germanys Economic Depression
1930s economic depressionGovernment was weakWeimer RepublicRising of Hitler
During the 1930s, there was a world wide economic depression which left people in Germany unemployed, out of jobs, and poor. The government was weak at the time and there were many people out of jobs, homeless, and in poverty. Then Hitler rose to power and brought hope to Germany. He promised to disenchant a better life and a new and glorious Germany.3Nazi DictatorshipReichstag Fire DecreeIncreased police and SS authorityAdolf becomes both Reich Chancellor and Fuehrer 1934
Reichstag fire decree was signed February 1933, the same year he was elected Chancellor of Germany. The decree states the suspension of all basic rights they once had when the Weimer Republic ruled. This decree also had hundreds of Communists arrested due to consequences from the actual fire in 1933 Hitler became Fuehrer on the August of 1934 after the death of the previous Fuehrer, Paul Von Hindenburg. This enables Hitler to do any thing he wants.4Nazi BeliefsHitlers belief of his master raceJews; the poisoned raceLimited Reproduction of Jews, Gypsies and, mentally illThe Nazi Bible; Mein Kampf

Hitler made physicians able to limit the reproduction of gypsies, the mentally ill, and people who were born deaf and/or blind by allowing physicians to force these people not to have children.
Mein Kampf was an autobiography made by Adolf Hitler while he had a five year sentence in prison for attempting to overthrow the Bavarian Govevernment, Mein Kampf meant My Struggle. This autobiography had written plans of world domination, anti-Semitism, worship of power, etc.

6Conclusion1930s economic depressionHitlers ReignMaster raceChancellor and FuhrerMein Kampf
The 1930s economic depression put millions of people out of jobs in Germany. Hitler rose to power and helped Germany in their time of need. Although Hitler believed in a master race and those who did not have blonde hair blue eyes were treated differently, especially Jews, Gypsies, and mentally ill. He not only became chancellor of Germany, but also became Fuhrer after the sudden death Paul Von Hindenburg. This made Hitler wield basically unlimited power having him do whatever he pleases. Mein Kampf inspired people throughout Germany.7Works ConsultedDamon, Duane. Mein Kampf. Farmington Hills, MI: Lucent Books, 2003. Print.Rice Jr., Earle. The Third Reich : Demise of the Nazi Dream.
