spark that ignited the fuse on Germany’s retaliations, which shredded the value of German currency (Michal). Not only did the retaliations concern currency and power, but they also led to protests and political uproars, some of them proving deadly (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum). Prior to Hitler’s invasion of Poland, he is depicted of being confronted by several other wars and nations. But with the strength of the German Republic, these wars were swiftly turned in Hitler’s favor (Dietrich, 1962). At the moment where Hitler finally invades Poland, strong bonds were present that the Jews were subject to inhumane and willful elimination. On September 1, 1939, his invasion led to over ten million total victims over a six-year span (Michal). In the film, only a small part of the holocaust was portrayed. Instead, the events between the world wars and preceding the holocaust were on the spotlight, and the invasion of Poland is considered a major prerequisite to entering World War II. In addition, the film also overlooks the major game-changer that Germany was capable of clearing Poland’s army in just three short weeks (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum).

Pampena 5 took full control of Poland so that the Germans had a vast area to find non-conforming Jews in the Holocaust (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum). This is where the transportation of Jews to concentration camps begins. When the tables turn to his achievements throughout this era, they are primarily negative and establish grounds where future human civilizations should never inhabit. At the dawn of the Holocaust, Hitler sent out every attack that he could on his enemies, including the Soviet Union (Dietrich, 1962). Throughout the film, Hitler is portrayed as a man that will try whatever method that he sees to achieve his goal of controlling Europe based on what he desires. The methods used completely disregarded humane and peaceful approaches such as discussing the issue through a committee before resorting to war, violence, and genocide. These actions would not have been possible without mastering the process of constructing and distributing propaganda (Dietrich, 1962). This was a contributing factor to his success in delivering his one-sided message that eventually led to him being favored during the 1930 election and several seasons prior to this year. Following the initial impacts of the Holocaust, World War II entered the global economy and political system. Beginning in 1941, multiple events produced a trickle-down effect on Hitler’s future. When Russian troops were secretly called into Germany and Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese, pitfalls were developing on Hitler’s land and power (Dietrich, 1962).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
