Adolf Hitler’s memory continues to trigger a collective image of death and destruction characterised by imagery from the corpses at Concentration Camps like Auschwitz, bombing and a ruthless Bureaucracy symbolised by the SS.
It is indeed remarkable that a man who was as vile as these images would suggest could gain the kind of support from his own people that empowered him to ‘terrorise’ the world. So in this month’s feature we explore the Adolph Hitler Germany loved and supported. This ‘version’ of Adolph Hitler perhaps also represents the way Hitler saw himself.
In the end, we’ll ask the question whether Hitler was pure evil, or whether perhaps the Hitler story is more complex than is commonly portrayed…Welcome to the Hitler story never told.
Early Life & World War 1
Adolf Hitler was born on 20 April 1889 in Braunau am Inn, a town in present-day Austria, and in 1907 he would leave to study fine art in Vienna. He applied for admission to the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna but was rejected twice, and after receiving the final part of his father’s estate in May 1913, he moved to Munich, Germany.
Following Germany’s defeat, The Treaty of Versailles was concluded and it stipulated that Germany must relinquish several of its territories and demilitarise the Rhineland. The treaty imposed economic sanctions and levied heavy reparations on the country, and many Germans saw the treaty as an unjust humiliation. In addition, German Nationalists felt betrayed by Zionist Germans who had reportedly cost Germany the War by bringing the US into World War 1 on the side of the British.
This was achieved through the 1917 Balfour Declaration in which Britain promised a portion of Palestine to Zionists in return for the Zionists bringing America into World War 1…This was subsequently achieved and shifted the Balance of Power during World War 1 firmly in favour of Britain and the Allies, an event which determined the outcome of World War 1.
This has come to be known as the ‘stab in the back’ which is regarded as a myth by those that oppose Hitler and an unquestionable truth by his supporters.
Political Career After World War 1: Rise To Power
After World War I, Hitler returned to Munich, and remained in the army. AsIn July 1919 he was appointed an intelligence agent to infiltrate the German Workers’ Party (DAP). On the orders of his army superiors, Hitler applied to join the party, and within a week was accepted. The DAP changed its name to the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (National Socialist German Workers Party; NSDAP). Hitler designed the party’s banner of a swastika in a white circle on a red background.
Hitler was discharged from the army on 31 March 1920 and began working full-time for the NSDAP for which he became Chairman in 1921, and after a failed 1923 insurrection known as the ‘Beer Hall Putsch’, he was jailed and released after a year following an Official Pardon by the Bavarian Supreme Court. While in Prison, Hitler dictated most of the first volume of his infamous work, ‘Mein Kampf (My Struggle)’.
In 1929, the stock market in the United States crashed, and the impact in Germany was dire: millions were thrown out of work and several major banks collapsed. Hitler used the opportunity to grow support for the NAZI Party, culminating in an effective 1932 Presidential Campaign which eventually paved the way for his appointment as Chancellor and the enactment of the Enabling Act which read together with the earlier Reichstag Fire Decree, transformed Hitler’s government into a de facto legal dictatorship in which he set at the Helm as Chancellor.
Hitler’s rise to prominence was on the back of German sympathies that relied on stoking the flames of Germany’s World War 1 humiliation. By using the 1929 Economic crisis to emphasize the injustice of the Treaty of Versailles and Germany’s need to deal with the 1914 Zionist ‘Backstabbers’, Hitler had consolidated a power base that relied on genuine support from Germans because he undertook to address the foremost concerns of Germans at that time.
The ‘German Betrayal’ was not invented by Adolf Hitler, it was already acutely felt by Germans before Hitler’s rise to Chancellor, and Hitler merely promised to address it with the urgency it deserved, something which other German Politicians did not seem to be willing to do at that time.
As for his methods, these were Machiavellian…For instance, the 1933 Reichstag Fire is considered a False Flag event Engineered by the NAZI Party to force the German Parliament (Reichstag) to relinquish its power into the hands of a Dictator in order to restore Law and Order…This was eventually achieved with the passage of the 1933 Enabling Act.
In Star Wars Episode 3 ‘Revenge of The Sith’ George Lucas mirrors the rise of the Galactic Empire under the Sith Lord Palpatine to the rise of NAZI Germany under Adolf Hitler. Perhaps what is now lacking is a further exploration into the motivations of the Sith Lord Palapatine himself…The Portrayal of the ‘Empire’ as a one dimensional evil ‘Dark Side’ is simplistic and mirrors our own world’s singular view of Hitler and NAZI Germany as ‘pure evil’.
It is perhaps because of this sort of Historical attitude that the most recent entry in the Star Wars Saga has failed to break new ground by restricting itself to recycling the old Star Wars Mythology instead of pushing the Series further by exploring the motivations of the ‘Dark Side’.
George Lucas’ exploration of Darth Vader’s journey in Episodes 1-3 is what made it worth creating, and the latest Star Wars Trilogy is limited perhaps unknowingly, by our unwillingness to explore the motivations of not only Adolph Hitler but all the designated villains of History.
Join us for Part 2 as we look at the motives behind Germany’s invasion of Poland, as well as the start and course of World War 2…We’ll also be considering the revisionist approach to the Holocaust.
