Germany Between World War 1 To World War 2: Culture And Politics

2490 words - 10 pages

During Nazi Germany the many different groups suffered in their own ways, but along with the losers, there were winners, in this analytical essay, I have outlined the most obvious ones. At the beginning Hitler tried to make everyone appear to win if he was elected. In 1927 he handed out pamphlets to certain groups, e.g. industrialists, saying that he would not follow through on his promise to share company profits with all the workers and that he was a fan of private enterprise. In this way he was able to make promises to everyone discreetly, without the mass media coverage on politics today. Hitler told farmers that they would have assistance, told workers they would be high class, but once ...view middle of the document...

Women had a large role in Nazi Germany; there position was central within the home. Hitler was obsessed with women becoming fit young ladies, in order to be healthy for childbirth, and said that women contributed to the state with their reproductive organs, which for many was not as bad as what they could have suffered under his regime. Hitler also developed the motto "Kinder, Kurche, Kirche" which translates to Children, Church and Kitchen, the three most important roles of a woman. Women, who had professional jobs or clerical duties, were removed, teachers, factory workers, scientists, were all removed from their jobs and given to men. They had a more important job within the home to fulfil and men needed the jobs more, the justification given to women at the time. The only women allowed to keep their jobs were ones who were single and would starve otherwise. Women on the whole were very oppressed, even if they wanted to voice their hatred of their new place in Germany, they would fear a trip to the concentration camp. Women were one of the losers of Nazi Germany and this was mostly attributed to the misogynistic and controlling Hitler.The average Hans in Nazi Germany, suffered, they could not express their opinions, they were not earning very much, and on top of that they had to support an even larger family. Although the government had a policy to pay of loans of people who had a certain amount of kids (25% per child) . Unemployment steadily declined, as seen by the table below this paragraph, which meant the average man capable of working was employed. Although at first this seems like good work on Hitler's part, it was mostly because he created a system where anyone seen as "work shy" was sent to the concentration camp to be more motivated to get a job. Hitler also used his popular idea of embarrassing people into complying, by making them wear black badges across their chests. For the average middle class man in Germany, life was tough.Unemployment in Germany TotalJanuary 1933 : 6 millionJanuary 1934: 3.3 millionJanuary 1935: 2.9 millionJanuary 1936: 2.5 millionJanuary 1937: 1.8 millionJanuary 1938: 1.0 millionJanuary 1939: 302,000During the very early 1900's Germany was strongly catholic, and yet during the Nazi Germany period, most of the public had forsaken their religion. This was mostly prompted by Hitler, a strong atheist, who tried desperately to gain control over the churches within Germany. In 1933 Hitler had a concordat signed by the Pope, restricting the churches activity, in return for giving the church some freedoms such as allowing them to have their own schools, freedoms which were soon taken back. Christians were conflicted, while outside on the street they were taught to worship Hitler, and only Hitler, their religion in its first commandment was to worship God and only God. Thousands and thousands of Christians who opposed the Nazi Party on religious grounds were shipped off to concentration camps to realise that...
