Hitler Vs Nazi Germany

Decent Essays
When discussing the history of Germany, it’s impossible not to bring up the topic of the Nazi’s. Nazi is short for the National Socialist German Worker’s Party, which was a political party that started in the early 1930’s and ended in 1945. This party was ran by Adolf Hitler that believed the Aryan race was the perfect race, and took out anyone who disagreed with their views. They saw the Jewish people as their biggest threat and tried to eliminate all Jews. This is what led to the Holocaust and the murder of approximately 6 million people, which included Jews, homosexuals, gypsies, and many other groups that were a threat to the Nazi’s. After the war the Nazi party was brought to an end; however, the term Neo-Nazi began to get popular. …show more content…

German Nazis acted out on racial ideology, but it was more their political ideology that was the reasoning for their actions than anything. For example, Germans saw the Jews as their “biggest threat to Germany” (Prabhat). In order to establish a totalitarian state, they had to make sure they got rid of any competition. This is one of the main reasons that they tried to get rid of all the Jewish people, and because they also saw them as the reason for all of Germany’s problems. Another example of the Nazi’s political actions is that they “invented common enemies” in Germany (Vogelsong). They got the German people to hate the groups of people, such as the Jews, gypsies, and homosexuals. Although …show more content…
The racial ideology of Neo-Nazis, compared to the political ideology of German Nazis and how German Nazis were able to get things done legally by passing laws, while Neo-Nazis struggle to get their points across without breaking the law show that they are not the same.

The Nuremberg laws shows Hitler’s hatred towards the Jews as he wanted to disadvantage them and make them the lowest social class in German society.
