What Were Hitler’s Foreign Policy Aims?
When Hitler came to power he was determined to make Germany a great power again and to dominate Europe. He had set out his ideas in a book called Mein Kampf (My Struggle) that he had written in prison in 1924. Hitler was determined to destroy the League, and it is doubtful if anything could have saved it. Hitler had three aims: Firstly, he wanted to abolish the Treaty of Versailles; he hated the tiny armed forces, the fact that the Saar was under the League’s control, the rhineland was demilitarised, union with Austria was forbidden, Danzig was under the League’s control and the fact that the Germans were forced to live in Czechoslovakia and Poland. The Treaty was a constant reminder to the Germans of their humiliation in World War I. Hitler did not accept that the German army had lost the war, and he was determined to make Germany great again. Next, was to expand German territory; The German population was growing. Hitler said that the German nation needed more Lebensraum ‘living space’. He was determined to get Lebensraum by conquering land in eastern Europe. This was connected with his belief that the Aryan race was genetically superior and destined to rule over others. Hitler believed he had the right to invade eastern Europe and make the Slav peoples (such as the Poles and the Russians) Germany's slaves. Last but not least, Hitler wanted to defeat communism. The Nazis were Fascists: the exact opposite of the Communists who ruled Russia. Hitler blamed the Communists for Germany's defeat in World War One, and he feared that the Communists were trying to take over Germany. He was determined to destroy Communism, and this meant a war with Russia. In Conclusion, Hitler wanted change; he was determined to make Germany great again, so by abolishing the Treaty of Versailles, expanding the…...

...German schools and universities. During the same year the proportion of Jewish students at universities was decreased to less than 1 per cent, to correspond to the proportion of Jews in Germany. However, although in some areas many Jewish children were removed from schools; it was not until 1938 that all Jewish children were finally banned from attending German schools. In Germany education was a major tool by which the Nazis’ racial policies were promoted and implemented. Initially, many teachers ignored the political changes. However, very soon, those German teachers who supported the Nazis or had been converted to Nazism began to develop new daily rituals and routines. Many of the 32 per cent of teachers who became Nazi Party members would wear their uniform to school. Once teachers began to show their support for the Nazi Party in schools, the atmosphere within the classroom became very different from the one students had known previously. The teacher would enter the classroom and welcome the group with a ‘Hitler salute’, shouting “Heil Hitler!” Students would have to respond in the same manner, often eight times each day – at the start and end of the day, in addition to the beginning and end of each lesson. Some changes in the curriculum caused minor incidents. Teachers varied on how they handled such situations. One Jewish boy remembers, "... I don't know if it was part of the curriculum, [in fourth grade] Bock taught us Nazi ideology ... Bock asked our class:......

...Instead of working to achieve power by armed coup, we shall hold our noses and enter the Reichstag against the opposition deputies. If outvoting them takes longer than out shooting them, at least the results will be guaranteed by their own constitution. Sooner or later we shall have a majority, and after that- Germany. (Heiden, 142)'  Adolf Hitler spoke these words in 1920, soon after becoming leader of the newly named National Socialist German Workers' Party, commonly known as the Nazi Party. There are many contributing factors, which lead to Hitler's gain in power over the next thirteen years. The recent history of post-war Germany, and the events that would follow were of perfect conditions for the rise of an extremist party such as the Nazis. World War One had left Germany in defeat. Germany was put under immense pressure by the treaty of Versailles, which contributed to the disastrous and politically unstable early twenties. Hitler was a strong and manipulating character, with extraordinary leadership skills and his party was very tactical. He was very much underestimated by opposing political parties. All of these factors lead to Hitler and his Nazis' becoming the sole political party in the Reichstag in 1933.  The German Empire was formed in 1871 and soon became one of Europe?s most influential countries. It dominated in industrial and military power, and the German people were proud of their achievements. Up until the end of World War One, a Kaiser ruled......

Mortgage Rice Price Policy in Thailand and Its Hiding Aim

...rice price policy in Thailand and its hiding aim 08 Fall 08 Fall Abstract Thailand has had a great influence on the global rice market for decades due to its huge stock and export. Hence, the Thai government has intervened in the paddy rice market by introducing the mortgage rice price policy. The policy was first implemented in 1980 in order to resolve the low-price problem in the paddy rice market. However, in the 21st century the government attempted to re-issue the policy, even though the paddy rice market price was already high at that time, resulted in a marketing failure to both domestic and international markets. Furthermore, the cost of the policy was excessively high raising concerns that the main reasons for presenting the policy could not be purely economical. Therefore, I argue that there were political reasons behind the aim of amending the policy in 2001. This essay will examine this argument by providing the process of the policy, the effects and problems of the policy, the cost of the policy and the hidden aim of the policy.

Assess the Claim That the Main Aim of Educational Policy over the Last 25 Years Has Been to Create an Education Market.

...Assess the claim that the main aim of educational policy over the last 25 years has been to create an education market Some sociologists would argue the main aim of governmental reform in education over the last 25 years has been to create an education market 9marketisation) others would disagree and say the main aim of educational reform has been to tackle things like inequality between different groups in society. The conservative government guided by new right principles wanted to improve standards in education without spending much money on it. They decided the best way to do this was to create an education market or competition, the guiding principle was that if schools were in a market or competition with each other they would be forced to improve. The government introduced lots of different policies to achieve this. They decided to change the system to give parents more power in education and create a parentocracy, this would be achieved by parents being given the choice to which school they would send their child to rather than it just been based on catchment areas. This would cause completion combined with a change in how schools were funded. Funding was changed to formula funding this meant that schools would compete for students as they were now funded per pupil. To ensure parents were aware of what was on offer to guide their choices the government introduced a national curriculum, new examinations of GCSE’s and SATs that all schools would have to sit. ......

...Woolf-Gurley English 1301-12123 The Life of Adolf Hitler The life of Adolf Hitler had always been a struggle since the day he was born till the very end of his life. You never really understand the situations people put themselves in and why until you really learn about them. Everyone may have their own personal opinions about someone but who is anyone to judge before they really understand the person completely. Each person has their own time line, and everything that has happened to them to make them the person they grow up to be, everyone has certain events throughout their lives that define them and help mold them into adults. Many people know of Adolf Hitler and why he was a part of history. They know of him as being responsible for the Holocaust, but very few know the reasons that led him to it. Born in Branau am Inn, Austria, on April 20, 1889, Adolf Hitler was the fourth of six children born to Alois Hitler and Klara Polzl. In 1895, at age six, two important events happened in the life of young Adolf Hitler. First, the unrestrained, carefree days he had enjoyed up to now came to an end as he entered primary school. Secondly, his father retired on a pension from the Austrian civil service. This meant a double dose of supervision, discipline and regimentation under the watchful eyes of teachers at school and his strict father at home. His father, now 58, had spent most of his life working his way up through the civil service ranks. He was used to giving orders......

...Hitler’s Aggressive Foreign policy One of Hitler’s aim aims was to reverse the treaty of Versailles and regain the territory loss in 1919. He also wanted to create a Germany in which all German people lived. These aims found support from the German people who disliked the treaty of Versailles and did not necessarily accept the terms of the Locarno Pact. In 1933 Germany was in a weak position By the treaty of 1919 her armed forces had been severally limited. Germany also faced “little Entente” of France Czechoslovakia, Romania and Yugoslavia. Also France and Poland were allies. Hitler withdrew from the disarmament conferences at the Hague in 1933/1934. When France refused to accept a British proposal for a general reduction in armaments. In 1934 Hitler withdrew Germany from the League of Nations. In January 1934 Germany signed a 10-year non-aggression pact with Poland. This was designed to upset the relationship between France and Poland, to counter this France signed a non-aggression pact with Russia. In 1934 Hitler Began to increase the size of Germany’s armed Forces, by the beginning of 1935 the German army totalled 234,000 and it had an air force of 2000 planes.

...against the improving of the conditions as Hitler abused and used people, when in fact the fame should not only be going to Hitler but to other parties involved. Unemployment decreased drastically between 1928 and 1938 shown in source a in 1938 unemployment was half a million people. You can see the increase of employment in 1932 and 1933 when the Great Depression hit Germany but you can also see the incredible decrease after the Depression, which shows how much effort and work, was put in to improve the conditions in Germany. Encouragement of saving and working hard was well regarded in people working towards a goal like saving and getting a car, source C indicates the save and reward term by giving the people something to achieve and live for. Strength was founded in working hard and thus created a joyous living as source F and source I are related by showing a sense of happiness within the people and the input of everyone working together. Industries boomed and the building of autobahns acted as a network to combine all industries and to let each industry grow and develop. Once again source D shows us the creation of jobs and living standards being improved by people earning a income which helped other industries boom which therefore created more jobs. Hitler was a dominant man who was determined to lead Germany to greatness, the British prime minister even sided with Hitler in saying that he has seen and witnessed the great changes Hitler made, he had achieved so much......

How Far Did Mussolini Achieve His Aims in Foreign Policy?

...How far did Mussolini achieve his aims in Foreign Policy? One of the first things that Benito Mussolini wanted to do was to expand Italy and give it and empire to rule over like France and Great Britain. He wanted Italy to be recognized as one of the dominant forces in Europe. The first of his conquests was Abyssinia. This he begun on the 40th Anniversary of the humiliating defeat Italy suffered at Adowa under the Liberals: Mussolini wanted to complete a fete that the Liberals couldn’t. As a means of propaganda to show that Italy was more powerful and united under Fascism than it had been under the Liberals. Mussolini gloried and reveled in the creation of an East African Empire. Britain and France, who Italy were allying with secretly allowed for and gave concession to his Abyssinian war. However, because they were both democracy’s, under internal condemnation and pressure, they had to publicly criticize Mussolini and Italy’s actions. This really infuriated Mussolini at the sheer hypocrisy shown by the 2 countries, as they both had large empires. This was also done because the public saw this as a brutal violation of another League of Nations country. Furthermore, in private Britain and France tried to mediate a deal, the Laval Pact. But this didn’t help the situation, because they had to side with the League of Nations, who enforced sanctions on Italy. However, this made Mussolini immensely popular at home, what one might call his finest hour. The sanctions didn’t......

Using Material from Item a and Elsewhere, Assess the Claim That the Main Aim of Education Policies in the Last 25 Years Has Been to Create an Education Market

...material from Item A and elsewhere, assess the claim that the main aim of education policies in the last 25 years has been to create an education market Educational policies have been introduced by the government in order to guide or inform schools on how to function through the laws and strategies provided. Over the last 25 years- since 1988 there have been many educational policies in order to improve education. Some sociologists would argue that although these policies have improved education, the main aim of this was for marketisation. Marketisation meant that schools had to compete in order to attract students to their schools. However, this appears to be somewhat questionable when the outcomes of these policies and others are taken into consideration. Policies that have been introduced due to the 1988 Education Reform Act can be used to clearly show that the main aim of educational policies in the last twenty five years has been to create an education market. As item A states, policies such as league tables create an open enrolment to increase competition. The league table is where schools would post grades achieved by the students in their exams. This was introduced because it was able to give parents a choice in where they wanted to send their child based on what schools achieved the higher grades. Therefore this can be used as an example to support the claim that the main aim of educational policies have been to create marketisation, as league tables drive......

Assess the Aims and Nature of Nazi Foreign Policy

...Assess the aims and nature of Nazi Foreign policy to September 1939 The aims and nature of Nazi Foreign policy up to September 1939 were ambitious yet hostile to others in nature, ultimately derived from Hitler’s worldview in creating a perfect German society. The ultimate aim of the policy centered on the destruction of the Treaty of Versailles, strategically set to be achieved through long and short-term goals. Territorial expansion and the desire for a racially pure Germany were encompassed in the long-term view of Nazi Foreign policy, however to achieve this, Hitler realised that he would first have to take smaller steps. This is observed through his establishment of the short-term goals of undoing the Treaty of Versailles and the creation of a GrossDeutschland. It is therefore conveyed that the aims and nature of Nazi Foreign policy were desirous in the nations ability to grow internationally, and unsympathetic in its nature and determination in an attempt to achieve this. The long-term goal of territorial expansion was highly linked to the Nazi aim of Lebensraum, which had a possibility of success before war broke out through the peace seeking façade of Germany. This idea is stated in the 3rd point of the Nazi program, ‘We demand land and territory to feed our people and to settle our surplus population’. The nature in which this was to be achieved by Hitler was through deceit and manipulation of other nations, in order to present a ‘changed’ Germany, thus......

...ADOLF HITLER- LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT PRACTICES James Latronica Edison State College ADOLF HITLER- LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT PRACTICES Even though he is famous for the wrong reasons and perhaps evil ones, Adolf Hitler will be remembered for a long time. He is one of the most famous villains of the 20th century world history. His rule over Germany and parts of Europe left a mark that is felt even today, decades after he died in the war. His rule saw Germany take over more territories than it had in its history prior to that period. For many military professionals, Hitler was a remarkably successful leader. However, his leadership led to the death of millions of people from his home country. While his followers called him a great leader, his enemies, who seem to be the majority, saw him as a threat to humanity. Hitler believed in a country of pure people; a superior race. For him, however, a superior race could not be comprised of Jews and other sickly people. He therefore put all the people he disliked in work camps while continuing to kill the rest. While the leader was relentless, it is noted that he did not have the best judgment. He thought that the superior race was composed of physically strong people. It has, however, been proven that the mind is almost all the time stronger than the body. It is important to acknowledge that, while his methods were wrong, his leadership was effective. He was able to run a country while waging......
