For many, Adolf Hitler is an icon for evil. The damage caused by his beliefs and actions is undeniable. What is overlooked by many is how charismatic a leader he truly was. Without the leadership of Adolf Hitler the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter Partei (NSDAP), also known as the Nazi’s, may have never been recognized as a valid party. Hitler’s charisma was largely responsible for the Party’s eventual rise to power.
In September of 1919, Hitler, a Corporal of the German Army, was asked to investigate a small group in Munich known as the German Workers' Party. Dressed in civilian ...view middle of the document...

.." a quote from Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf”.
For next year or so Hitler and the German Workers’ Party tried having public meetings but very few people came. They decided to try once more by sending invitations and placing advertisements in the newspaper for a meeting in the beer cellar, a hundred people showed. This was Hitler’s first time as a featured speaker, and the results spoke for themselves. Even Hitler himself began to recognize his potential at this point. "I spoke for thirty minutes, and what before I had simply felt within me, without in any way knowing it, was now proved by reality: I could speak! After thirty minutes the people in the small room were electrified and the enthusiasm was first expressed by the fact that my appeal to the self-sacrifice of those present led to the donation of three hundred marks", another quote from Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”. The party used the money to buy more advertising and pamphlets. Hitler spoke out against the Treaty of Versailles and laid a lot of the blame on the Jews for Germany's problems. By this point Hitler’s charisma was noted by many, and attendance started to grow by the hundreds.
Hitler started recruiting soldiers from many alienated, maladjusted soldiers and ex-soldiers that had distaste for the peace brought on by the Treaty of Versailles. Hitler, against the wishes of the members, pushed the German Workers’ Party for its first public large meeting, and it brought thousands into attendance. Hitler proceeded to outline the Twenty Five Points of the German Workers’ Party which included the union of all Germans, rejection of the Treaty of Versaailles, citizenship determined by race with no Jew to be considered a German, and many other points. All 25 points were well received by the crowd. Hitler had realized that something was missing to represent the group in the form of a symbol or flag, and so the Swastika was developed. Hitler described the symbolism involved: "In the red we see the social idea of the movement, in the white the national idea, in the swastika the mission to struggle for the victory of Aryan man and at the same time the victory of the idea of creative work, which is eternally anti-Semitic and will always be anti-Semitic." The German Workers' Party name was changed by Hitler to include the term National Socialist. Thus the full name was the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP) called for short, Nazi.
Hitler was now beginning to gain notoriety outside of the Nazi Party. Slowly, the government began looking toward the rising politician, Adolf Hitler, and the growing Nazi movement as a threat. Hitler was already looking at how he could carry his movement to the rest of Germany. He traveled to Berlin to visit nationalist groups during the summer of 1921. The Party was still run by an executive committee whose original members now considered Hitler to be dictatorial. They tried to weaken Hitler's position, but...
