In 1923, Hitler was in the spotlight for beginning to terrorize groups that were against his beliefs by any means. At this point, Hitler fires shots in a meeting being held in a beer hall, hoping to mark the beginning of his intended change to dictatorship across Europe. Despite Hitler being charged with treason, he served just eight months in a prison where he wrote Mein Kampf. Astonishingly, the guards supported his actions because they are considered a gateway to positive change in the world (Dietrich, 1962). This scene is played out to a very similar extent compared to the actual event. Upon his release, Germany is depicted as a growing metropolis with happier citizens. As time progressed, Hitler realized that he would no longer be able to carry out his master plan in western Europe. Instead, he resorted to eastern Europe to carry out his plan.

Pampena 4 Germans basically looked into an evil crystal ball to predict their future, and Adolf Hitler’s plans of attack began to brew because of the evident lack of power among the Germans. When the Nazi Party unleashed their plan to gain support from German citizens and support a government free of democracy and equality following the win in the 1930 election, fear spread across Europe on both sides. After the fall of President Powell, Hitler becomes the primary leader in the Nazi Party. Almost immediately, Hitler imposed severe restrictions on the rights of Christians and Jews, and those that did not comply were arrested (Dietrich, 1962). But another considerable flaw that the film does contain is that it overlooks the ideas presented in the Treaty of Versailles that reduced Germany’s military power. This treaty was also known as the

    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.
