At age 45 Hitler started purges of Nazi party foes. At age 45Stalin started purges of Communist party foes Politically there was a great difference between the three leaders.Hitler was a true Nationalist who firmly believed in the concept ofPan-Germanism. He had no real "political" program and NationalSocialism was never more than a handy vehicle for Hitler to rise topower - one of the reasons it's never really revived (in any form)as a political force is because it never existed to begin with.Mussolini's Fascism, while better organized and more genuinelysocialist were also largely a nebulous concept. Stalin's Communismwas quite real and an actual political philosophy - although it'sdebatable as to whether Stalin was a committed Communist or whetherhe just used the party in the same way that Hitler used the NSDAP -namely as a vehicle for his personal advancement. Neither Hitler nor Stalin hated one another. In actuality theyadmired one another on a personal level - Stalin praised Hitler'sruthless commitment to purge Germany of opposition and Hitlerregarded Stalin as the only leader who was truly equal to him - ina very weird way these two remained connected right to the bitterend. Other minor points: Hitler was not a sickly child. He was a robust child who oftenfeigned sickness for his mother's attention (a lot like TeddyRoosevelt actually). Stalin's father did abandon his family. Hitler's father didn'tabandon his family - Hitler (and probably the World) would likelyhave been better off if he had abandoned them. I've read just about every history book there is on 20th centuryEuropean history. I don't recall ever reading that Hitler's motherwanted him to be a priest. Similarly, although Hitler's grammarschool was in a church, Hitler was not ever, in any way, enrolledin a Seminary or anything like it. Hitler greatly admired theCatholic Church's administrative structure and adopted much of itfor the Nazi Party but that's about it (and it was a good callsince the Church itself took its structure from the old ImperialRoman system - which was pretty damned good). Hitler was an excellent artist with a penchant for architecturalstudies. Stalin was not an artist of any particulat ability - hewas more noted as being a poet of some promise when he was younger. Hitler did graduate from High School but got drunk after hisgraduation and used his certificate/diploma as,,,um, well, toiletpaper (no this is the truth!) and when he was subsequently unableto produce the certificate he was ineligible for admission tohigher schools in Vienna. Hitler spent a cushy time in Landesburg Prison following the failedBeer Hall Putsch (imagine, he could've come to power ten fullyears' earlier than he did. What a mess that would've been).Stalin's imprisonment(s) were largely for general thuggery -bombings and armed robberies. Hitler was much more like Lenin thanhe was Stalin when it comes to his political career since both ofthese were the fountainheads of their political movements. Stalinwas much more of a political intriguer who picked his enemies offfrom within. Click on the related Question below to read 'What are thedifferences between Hitler and Stalin?'
Benito Mussolini never shared Hitler's obsession in wiping out theJews in Europe. In fact, by 1943, most of Italian Jewry was unaffected and leftalone, compared to what was ha…ppening in Germany and elsewhere. Maybe not at first but increasing cooperation with Nazi Germanyculminated in the 1939 Pact of Steel. Influenced by Hitler,Mussolini began to introduce anti-Jewish legislation in Italy. Andnot just that BUT... Benito Mussolini was a fierce anti-Semite, whoproudly said that his hatred for Jews preceded Adolf Hitler's andvowed to "destroy them all," according to previously unpublisheddiaries by the Fascist dictator's longtime mistress. AND... ANTISEMITIC LEGISLATION : In part under pressure from Nazi Germany and in part fearing thattheir "revolution" was not perceived as "real" in the Italianpopulation, the Fascist regime passed antisemitic legislationbeginning in 1938. This legislation covered six areas: 1) definition of Jews 2) removal of Jews from government jobs, including teachers in thepublic schools 3) a ban on marriage between Jews and non-Jews 4) dismissal of Jews from the armed forces 5) incarceration of Jews of foreign nationality; and 6) the removal of Jews from positions in the mass media Not anti-Semitic? Where did you get your facts from deniersanonymous? I can understand your inability to comprehend our answers. I am astudent of World War II history and have lived in Germany and evenspeak the language. Mussolini NEVER EVER possessed the same degree of hatred of Jewrythat Hitler and others held. In 1942 when asked about anyanti-Jewish programs that were being carried out, includingconcentration camps, Mussolini confessed that he wasn't thatinterested in "dealing with the Jews". You have to keep in mindthat Mussolini early in his political career was a strong Socialistand journalist-not a rabid anti-semite! There had never been a hugenumber of Jews in Italy unlike Germany and majority of them werecertainly not wealthy or powerful. Mussolini was much moreinterested in getting the trains to run on time and to improve thenation's economy during the depression and to expand his Italianinfluence in Africa and the Mediterranean. _______________________________________________________________ I guess we can start with what they had in common. Both werefascist dictators who had their political roots formed in WWI.Major differences were that Adolf Hitler while wishing for Germanhegemony over Europe (and the world eventually) also had strongideological beliefs regarding the superiority of the Aryan raceover all others. Needless to say he did not even think Jews (amongothers) were human beings. He said they should be eradicated.Mussolini was more benign (for lack of a better word) in that hewas looking to share in the spoils of the war that Hitler startedand expected to win. His goal was to create a 20th century RomanEmpire in the Mediterranean. Another big difference between the twowere the populations under them. Hitler enjoyed the slavish supportof his people to the very end while Mussolini gradually lost theconfidence of his people (my grandmother excepted). Benito Mussolini never shared Hitler's obsession in wiping out theJews in Europe. In fact, by 1943, most of Italian Jewry was unaffected and leftalone, compared to what was happening in Germany and elsewhere.Mussolini, unlike Hitler, was a strong Socialist and a Journalistbefore he changed and help to organize the black shirts and theFascist Party in 1921. Mussolini, unlike Hitler, was fluent inseveral languages, including English and had travelled extensivelyaround Europe. Mussolini, to Hitler's astonishment, never arrestedthe King of Italy or had him overthrown and remained the head ofthe Italian republic.
Answer . Benito and Adolf did not like each other but they respected each others power, certainly Benito would have been interested in gaining more power.. In 1938, German…y occupied Austria in the Anschluss (forbidden by Versailles ). Hitler did not forewarn Mussolini about what he was going to do and this upset Mussolini's belief that he was an equal partner. However, there was nothing Mussolini could do about the Nazi occupation of Austria and it was clear from 1938 on that Mussolini was definitely the minor partner in the relationship. .
Adolf Hitler was a cruel, cruel man who killed over 12 million people during World War II. He was the reason for the holocaust, and the reason for WWII when the Nazi Party inv…aded Poland on September 1, 1939. Hitler was the dictator of Germany and helped Germany out of their low economy that was caused from World War I, and blamed all European Jews for the cause of their depression. He killed 6,000,000 Jews and another 6,000,000 disabled peoples, gypsies, people with other religious groups, homosexuals, and anyone who was against himself. His plan was to wipe out the entire race of Jews which was called the final solution. He only wanted a race called the Aryan race who were Germans with blue eyes and blonde hair to be in Europe. He also wanted to gain control of the whole continent of Europe, and slowly take over the world. Sounds ridiculous, right? there are so many other cruel statements about Hitler which I inspire you to look up because it is very interesting. Benito Mussolini was an Italian dictator who was allies with Hitler. He ran the Italian economy poorly and many Italians hated this about him. He was shot and killed at the age of 61.
all of them like to kill people
They both tried to take over and use dictatorship
They were bot dictators.
The "influence" was not a direct influence. For Example; Mussolini didn't go talk to Hitler, telling him that he should create a dictatorship along side him. It was more of Hi…tler looking upon the work of Mussolini and imitating Mussolini and adding his own style in order to take over the German Government. Some of the ways that Mussolini influenced Hitler : 1. Mussolini over trough the Italian government trough a political scheming. hitler was also inspired by his speeches and if you compare the way he would over power the crowds it was very similar. I think that they were both against Judaism aswell but i am not completely sure because i got that of a really dodgy website so you might want to look it up.
Hitler appreciated Mussollini's style of leadership. He ruled his people by making sure they feared him - something you would recognize in Hitler's actions. Mussolini used Wor…ld War 1 veterans as those who he trusted for guidance (not the word I want) - which were called the "Black Shirts". Hitler's version were the "Brown Shirts" or the Nazis. These are examples of Mussollini's influence upon Hitler's ruling style.. Here is a link that reflects some of the communication between the men leading toward and during World War 2. Keep in mind they were allied during the war in an effort to rule the world.
Adolf Hitler- the German dictator during World War 2 who promised to break the Treaty of Versailles and restore Germany's pride. Benito Mussolini- Italian dictator during Wor…ld War 2 that rose to power because he promised to revive the economy during the Great Depression. He also promised to revive the glory of the Roman Empire.
