The historical analysis of the “History of Germany” reveals many hidden facts including the complex issues such as fighting against homosexuality, Hitler’s racial ideology and the ecclesiastical Christian Church movements that needed to be appropriately addressed and rectified. This analytical paper aims to analyze the History of Germany by assessing two articles that are; “Combating homosexuality as a political task” and “Who can resist temptation?” to analyze the situation of Germany through historical documents.
Analysis of “Combating Homosexuality As A Political Task”
Günter Grau’s article on “Gay and lesbian Persecution in Germany” from 1933 to 45 presents the detailed view of the treatment of homosexuals and the lesbians during the Nazi government period.

In all, both the articles attempt to address the challenges of the Germans. Grau and Bonhoeffer suggest solutions to German problems, which are still relevant in the modern time such as effects of homosexuality and moral responsibility of preserving religion, are still debated in many societies.
The paper discusses the two articles analyzing the historical transition of Germans through the period Nazi Hitler. The two articles pose the threatened position of the Germans throughout the period of Hitler regime and the social and religious submission of the people to the socialist regime of the time whereas on the other hand it could be analyzed from the text of both the articles that the papers attempt to signify the historical transformation of the Germans and the challenges that the country faced during its transformational phase.
