In Shirer’s summary, most of Hitler’s ideas are very disturbing but there are some ideas can be make sense of. First, the most disturbing idea Hitler talks about in Mein Kampf is the concept of Germans the "highest species of humanity on this earth” (88) and his obsession with Folkish. In this, Hitler’s goal was to make Germans the center of all life and to keep the blood lines pure, in the end making them the masters of Earth.

At first, it was his brain power and his countless hours of studying that got his foot first in the door. On top of that, the way he performed in speeches largely affected why Germany fell for Hitler. In the movie we watched in class, Triumph of the Will, the way the audience was hanging on his every word was almost scary. At eveflcene, the entire crowd was giving Hitler their fully attention and it is said that he was one of the greatest speakers in history. Last, Germany was scared of Hitler and his Nazi party. At the Night of Long Knives, Hitler killed many people in order to make his soldiers more powerful and killed people who angered him and the Nazi party in the recent past. Germany, despite its sophistication and roots fell under Hitler’s spell because he was an educated and well-spoken man who had the power of a nations fear on his side. ...
