The Impact of Nazi Rule on the People of Germany between 1933 and 1939

Whether the Nazis made a negative or positive impact on the people of
Germany, they most defiantly made one. In making a decision on what
this was I will look at all of the aspects of their aeon, and examine
them. The bad parts of Nazi sovereignty are obvious: there abominable
policies concerning minority groups, their way suppressing the people
by removing their rights, using violence and threats and so forth,
however it must also be pointed out that there were good parts of
their reign which included increased quality of peoples leisure time
and improvements in the economy.

One particular group of people who found themselves affected by the
removal of rights was German men. Within months of coming into power
Hitler had abolished trade unions and replaced them with the German
Labour Front, which was run by Doctor Robert Lay. In 1933 the day
after the trade unions were abolished he stated "I swear to you we
will not only keep everything which exists, we will build up the
rights and protection of the workers even further." In some ways this
was accurate. He made sure workers could not be fired on the spot and
workers could not leave a job without the governments permission. In
others though it was the exact opposite. Employees could no longer
bargain for higher wages, and there was no limitation on working hours
meaning by 1939 many were working 60 - 72 hours a week. Although this
was entirely unreasonable the workers failed to complain as by 1936
many factory workers could earn 35 marks a week - ten times more than
the dole money people were receiving in 1932. The impact of this was
that life was much more strenuous for workers, who had little chance
of opposing it. However it would appear to me that it was not entirely
impossible for workers to rebel, but factors that made them better off
ie money deterred them from it - they were getting a little in return
for their loss.

The attack on unemployment also changed a number of things for German
men. It can be said that Nazis greatly reduced problems of
unemployment as from when they gained power in 1933 to 1939
unemployment dropped from 6014000 right down to 302000. This looks
good on the surface but underneath shows up a number of faults.
Numbers of unemployment were most certainly improved upon but this was
mostly due to rearmament, compulsory military service (this took
1300000 off unemployment registers), people making weapons equipments
and scientist developing food and material substitutes. This was not
essentially a long term solution to Germanys problems but the impact
it had was to give men money and food, which at that time was what
they needed.

Equally it was men's partners/partners to be which were affected.
Women found themselves...
