In a time of peace and prosperity one of the most brutal
organisations ever known to man was formed. An organisation
made up of murders, theives, and rapists. The organization we’ve
come to know as the “Nazis”.


On January 2,1919, two men by the names of Karl Harrer
and Anton Drexler founded a group called the “German
Workers’ Party”. It started out as nothing more than a few blue
collar workers getting together to gripe about the government.
Anton Drexler was described by Robert Leckie in his book
delivered from evil as a toolmaker in the munich railyard a
working man. He was a tall, spare man, as undistinguished as his
dab of mustache and rimless glasses.(38)
But this harmless simple group was about to take a turn for
the worse. On september 19,leured by the possibility to make
hisself known, Adolf Hitler joined the german workers’ party.
Moving quick Hitler soon became the public speaker for the
party. With obtaining this position Hitler could finaly let the
people hear his views. When he outlined the parties platform he
put the german workers’ party in a positon to become a political
power in germany and capitalizing on this oppertunaty they
changed their names from german workers’ party to the National
Socalist German workers’ party, which would soon become
known as the Nazi party.(lace 9)
Nothing more was heard from germanys Nazi party for
another three years untill the morning of november 8, 1923, when
a column of three thousand Nazis marched toward Munich’s
central plaza. Arm-in-arm infront were Ludendorff, Goring,
Hitler, and max von scheubner-Richter the four leaders of the
Nazi party. At the odenplatz they found their way barred by a
hundredd police armed with bayonets fixed to their rifles. As the
two forces were about to come together, a shot rang out no one
could tell from which side. In an instant there were volleys of
gunfire from both directions. Goring fell, shot in the thigh,
scheubner-richter was fatally wounded and, in falling, dragged
Hitler to the pavement and separated his shoulder. Nineteen
Nazis were killed and dozens were wounded. Only lundendorff
continued to march forward and was arrested on the spot. The so-
called “Beer Hall Putsch” had failed. Two days later Hitler
was arrested. Goring and Hess fled to Austria. Rohm and the
other top Nazis were rounded up and arrested. The party was
declared banned by the government. to all apperances the Nazi
party and the career of Adolf Hitler were at an end. Infact, they
had barely begun.(lace 37)
After Hitlers trial he spent a year in prison. And while he
was in prison he made the statement that once he was released from
prison, his mission was to rebuild the Nazi party into an
organization that would take power legally.(lace 43) And rebuild
is what hitler did. By the end of 1928 there were more than
100,000 members. Steadily the Nazis became more visible
throughout germany and yet with germany sharing in world
prosperity the growth of the nazi party was slow.

Hitlers strongest asset was his ability to formulate the aims of
his movement so generally and yet in such diversity that there
appered to be something in his program at some time, for nearlly
every german.(black 56) And with Hitler rising to fame the arms
cheifs gradually realised that the strength of the nazi party was
such that Hitler was the only possible successsor to Hindenburg
as the head of the german nation. So on january 30,1933, Hitler
was appointed chancellor of the german government.


once appointed chancellor Hitlers plans and actions would
lead to the beginning of WWII and the Holocaust. When
Hitler gained control of germany, germany and the soveit union
where the major powers in europe. and if Hitler had been a little
more patention he could have fullfilled his dreams of ruling the
world. Hitlers decision to attack the soviet union would lead to his
defeat. On April 29, 1945, with the allied forces closing in on his
bunker, Hitler decided to take his on life and with a pistol shot to
the head he did. in suit all of hitlers closset compainains followed.
Goring dided at his on hand to demonstrate that he was still the
master of his destiny.(manvell 7). while undergoing an
examination by a british medical officer himmler bit down on a
vile of potassium cyanide, that he keep between his teeth, he died
twelve minutes later.(rice 37)
the biggest changes occurred in germany since Hitler was not
displaced by hi army or his people. The surrender of germany and
the collapse of nazism occurred simultaneosly.(calvoressi 555)
Winston churchill put it the best when he said, “As facism
sprang from communism, so nazism developed from fascism. Thus
were set on foot those kindred movements which were destined to
set the world in even more hideous strife.(34)
So you see for the world to be able to keep another group
such as the nazis from surfaceing again, one must ask who should
of stoped Hitler. Better yet who could have stoped the “Nazis”.
