Hitler and Nazism, facts about Nazism history

Nazism is the name by which Adolf Hitler's National Socialist ideas came to be known. Hitler helped build up the Nazi party after Germany's defeat in the First World War. His ideas were very extreme, and his followers were trained like soldiers.

Hitler came to power legally after the slump of 1929-32. During this crisis, six million Germans were unemployed, and many people voted for the Nazis hoping they could solve Germany's problems. Once in power, Hitler set up concentration camps for his opponents, abolished other political parties, and controlled all newspapers, radio and films. He insisted that as 'Aryans', Germans were a master race, destined to rule the world. Jews and Gypsies were systematically persecuted and murdered because they were considered members of inferior races.

Unemployment was solved by expanding the armed forces and the armament industries. Then Hitler began seizing other countries, first Austria and part of Czechoslovakia in 1938. During World War II, with his ally Mussolini of Italy, Hitler's armies occupied most of Europe. Hitler's one more crime is the Holocaust. He committed suicide in Berlin in 1945 when Germany was defeated.
