  1. Ahh a good question for someone who hasen’t read history. No the Germans weren’t sitting around going you know Hans woulden’t it be great if we elected a mad man and commited genocide against another race of people, and Franz going yeah that sounds like a hell of a good time. That is not how it happen.

    Imagine that you got yourself into a huge war and got whipped you lost several of your friends, your town got bombed to smitherens, and you can barley eek out a living by the end of the war. However the victors are not merciful to you the defeated rather they give you a huge debt, take away your military, and a lot of your industry which you need to use to pay back the debt. In the end your left with a currency that is toilet paper. This is what happen during the wimar republic that existed after WW1, highest rate of hyper inflation in the history of the world, prices could change within an hour, wheelbarrows of cash had to be used to buy one loaf of bread.

    Wanting an end to your suffering a new party raises who’s man is a very charismatic, and a very good speaker convinces you he has a way to make sure you can eat and get your local economy back in order. He also is so good he can convince you that a small minority who has managed to keep financially afloat helped your enemies prolong your misery and that they need to be shipped off. He dosen’t tell you that he is shipping them off to be killed but you don’t care your hungry and your in great despair. After he has become your leader your economy improves a little bit and he gives you back a military and some pride.

    That is what Hitler did to the German people, he found them in there weakness, he was very charismatic, and he was able to give them back there pride and some hope. Germans diden’t realzie the mad man he was until the middle of the war when he started turning on his own people, and a lot of them diden’t realize about the Jewish extermination camps until after the war.
