A man named Adolf Hitler led a party named the Nazis. They were all members of the National Socialist Party in Germany. This party was established in Munich in 1919 and in 1921 it was taken over by Adolf Hitler. It was from the outset dominated by hatred and 'anti' attitudes: it was antisemtic, anti-Marxist and anti-democratic.

Hitler rose to leadership of the party, and then became the Führer of all Germany on January 30,1933. His Dictatorship lasted 12 years until the end of WWII. He had a specific idea of the 'perfect' person. He had a desire to create a "perfect" Germany. Millions of people who did not fit Hitler's idea of perfect were arrested and sent to work-camps or death-camps. Millions of these people were Jewish. Hitler's Nazi leaders built camps specifically to exterminate these people in very cruel and inhumane ways. He committed suicide with his wife, Eva Braun, on April 30, 1945 when it was apparent that Allied forces would win the war against Nazi Germany.

The Nazi party peaked in strength during WWII. Not all Germans were Nazis and many Germans lived in fear of Hitler and the Nazi Party. But many Germans supported Hitler, for ending the depression.

The Nazi Party, or in English the National Socialist German Workers' Party, was the ruling fascist party that controlled Germany politically and militarily from 1933 to 1945. This was the "vehicle" that brought Adolf Hitler to power as the Reichskancellor, or Reich Chancellor. The Nazis were just Party members basically and most joined due to the political advantages as well as "social networking" available to Party members. Sad sitution, really.

The NAZI (An abbreviation for Nationalsozialism,"National socialism) was a political party in Germany from the early 1919 to the end of WW2 (and still refusing to go away even today in isolated pockets around the world). They took power by means of deception, coercion and blackmail and caused Europe to go to war as they invaded country after country and were led (primarily) by Adolph Hitler.

Their general philosophy was that the Germans (specifically, the "Aryans", those with blue eyes and blonde hair) were evolutionarily superior and so took it upon themselves to attempt to systematically wipe everyone else off the face of the earth.

By mixing sloganism (and a rather effective propoganda machine in general), bits of occult philosophy, and a general rejection of those viewed as having brought about Germany's downfall at the end of World War 1 (including communists, Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, Christians/Catholics, the mentally and physically handicapped and others), they were able to mobilize vast numbers of the population very quickly and take most of Europe by surprise.
