Creative Diary Entry Of A Man Living In Weimar Germany Before Wwii

1726 words - 7 pages

Life is really quite surreal here in Germany. I really don't know how to feel about the new Nazi rule that has been forced upon us. Life certainly is different, and I guess it will never be the same again. Well, not in the foreseeable future. We're pretty much stuck with it, and there's really nothing you can do about it, except for sit tight, and don't open your mouth too much.It all started with that stupid treaty, 'The treaty of Versailles'. It put Germany in all sorts of problems, most importantly, it made the political state of Germany totally messed up, and there was nothing there really. Hyperinflation meant that there was a high unemployment rate, and the economic state was absolutely dreadful.See now this man who was in World War One, a collage dropout, was a real passionate supporter of Germany. He was so passionate he staged riots and ended up in prison. During the eight months he was in prison, he wrote a book, called Mein Kampf, about how he disapproved of the system, and what he'd do to change it, and that really made people sympathise with him.At this point German was in a quite dreadful state, even worse than when the treaty was signed. Hitler was gaining more and more support, with each speech a new wave of supporters, with each rally a new wave of supporters. This got so much that the German voters democratically made the Nazis the more popular party in Germany. I have to admit, I even voted for them. I really thought they were the answer, seriously, but how wrong I was. How wrong I was.It all seemed so bright. There were posters everywhere, telling the stories of convert-nazis, who were saying about how great the nazi ideas were. At the cinemas too, there were pictures of proud Germans telling about how great the Nazis were. He even said, any workers could have medical benefits, and he made our lives seem so much simpler, and it seemed like it was able to make everyone happy. As the depression and the hyperinflation got more and more, people were losing their jobs, and not their lives were completely changing, for worse. Most important of all though, he promised to make Germany a great nation, and that was so appealing to everyone, as the current government wasn't exactly living up to our demands. The nazis were a way out of this terrible life, especially for those who has lost their jobs, as one of the main nazi policies was that they would make jobs for every person in Germany, and make it an industrial and prosperous country.See, what they failed to mention is that to make everyone happy, they weren't going to help us in making our individual lives better. He wanted to make Germany a racist state and one where one of their favourite slogans was 'We think as our blood.' Enemies included the Communists, Socialists, and Jews, who the Nazis placed the whole blame on, for the all the events of world war one. Hitler even opposed the intellectuals, but recognised that they were essential if anything was to be done. Fortunately,...
