HITLER The year was 1929, the Great Depression had hit hard all over the world. People were losing their jobs, and their way of life was changing drastically right before their eyes; the people needed money fast. They needed to rebuild their lives and get back on their feet again, economically, politically, and socially. They needed a way out of this slump fast, and Hitler was there for the rescue. In 1933, Germany was facing a high unemployment level, leaving people to fend for themselves on the streets, Hitler took advantage of the peoples low moral and made them big promises of the dawn of a new era for Germany. The social classes lost their meanings. The middle-class was ruined by the Depression: they were stripped of their livelihoods. The Nazi's promised them the one thing that were desperately in need of to survive: Bread! The Nazi's promised to give the farmers repossession of their land. Hitler had a way of persuading people to do what he wants. He knew what the people wanted and how to make them believe that they were actually going to get it.

Hitler had a way of captivating his audience, he made promises to his people that made them feel strong, proud, and gave them a sense of salvation. He gave them something for which to look forward to. Hitler loved to speak to a large group of people. They were taken by his presence and enchanted by the words he spoke and the emotion he generated through the crowd. His audience would stand there dumbfounded, being swept up with the words he preached and would get caught up with their own reactions to the words. He would say things that made the country's future look optimistic. His followers would applaud him after he spoke, and they would leave holding the same ideas as Hitler and his men followed. Even though people knew Hitler's ideas were wrong, they listened just to be part of such a powerful crowd. People wanted to be included and be part of the happy cheering crowd, so they
