However he could not do anything until he had become Chancellor of Germany, he then began to put his anti-Semitic polices into place. Even though historians did not know what Hitler's 'long-term plan' was they did get a brief idea what he wanted to do. To cease the existence of Jews and to create a pure master race, an 'Aryan race'.
