In What Ways Did Hitler Follow The Aims And Ideologies That He Had Set Out In "Mein Kampf"?

1484 words - 6 pages

"Mein Kampf" or "My Struggle" outlines the history of Hitler's political development. Adolf Hitler wrote this document during the time of his imprisonment. He used this time he had in prison to rethink the strategy of the NSDAP (Nazi Party or Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei), which led him to writing the first edition of Mein Kampf. This text outlined the history of Hitler's political development and in a section of the book it goes on to discuss political ideology and the way forward.Mein Kampf included many of Hitler's aims and beliefs/ideologies. These aims/beliefs/ideologies can be separated into different categories, including social, religious, political, and nationalism.One of the major issues presented in the Mein Kampf was the 25-point programme of the NSDAP. These points were devised by Adolf Hitler and Anton Drexler. On 24 February 1920, they were presented publicly "to a crowd of almost two thousand and every sin point was accepted amid jubilant approval." The whole point of these 25 points were that "Hitler was intent on having a community of mutual interest that desired mutual success instead of one that was divided over the control of money or differing values"1. The main goal of devising and implementing these aims and ideologies were to ensure the continued existence of the Nazi Party.The social issues which were presented in the programme made up the majority of all the issues raised. Nineteen out of the 25 points of the programme were social issues which affected German nationals. For example, point 4 of the programme states that "only members of the nation may be citizens of the State..." point 9 states that "All citizens have equal rights and duties". These are just a few of the many points that reflect social issues that the NSDAP provided the answer for, for the people. These social issues covered certain issues that would have affected many people from extent to another in their day-to-day lives.1Programme of the NSDAP, 24 February 1920 - http://www.hitler.org/writings/programmePoint 4 of the NSDAP programme states that "...no Jew may be a member of the nation." Hitler followed this aim, which he had set out, very seriously and very thoroughly. This was done by executing the Jews or stowing them off to concentration camps. German's used anything excuse to execute a Jew. For example:Report of the Commander of the Jewish Concentration Camp of DaugavpilsTo the Commander of Section No. 1 of the Police at DaugavpilsDaugavpilsFebruary 19, 1942On February 19th of this year the Jewess Chaya Mayerova, born 1893, was arrested in the Jewish Camp for exchanging a piece of material against approximately 2 kgs. of flour, with a maintenance laborer* in the concentration camp.

The laborer who exchanged the flour for the...
