How did Hitler gain power in Germany by building up National pride?

User Avatar
The question asked by it's nature does not admit to some short and sweet answer. There are many books on it. For the historical facts of his rise, William Shirer's, "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" is probably the definitive work. For some insights into the psychology of the disaffected that made up such a large part of the Nazi movement, "The True Believer" might help. How he gained power in brief was by the recruitment of the disaffected, of which appealing to "national pride" played a large role. He also gained power by being the "zero point" - in other words, men of real power couldn't agree as to which one of them should have it, and each of them thought they could control Hitler, so they all agreed to let him be the figurehead. However, when he was then appointed as Chancellor, he promptly had his minions kill off a majority of the Cabinet, and the Vice-Chancellor, leaving him effectively in absolute command. The men of power then had to take his orders, rather then give him orders as they had hoped.

What are the similarities between Japanese people and Jewish people during World War 2?

User Avatar
The only similarities there are, are that they were both rounded up and put in to camps. The Japanese were rounded up in the United States, because we believed that they were dangerous. The United States thought they would attempt acts of espionage. The Jews were rounded up all around Europe, and killed. I don't know of any deaths of Japanese during their incarceration. Six million Jews were killed during this time.

What was in the handkerchief that made it impossible to search for the hidden Jews during the holocaust?

User Avatar
Rabbit blood and cocaine were in the handkerchief that made it impossible to search for the hidden Jews. When the dogs smelled the rabbit blood they thought it was meat so basically they chewed up the handkerchief. The cocaine made it impossible to search for the hidden Jews because when they smelled the cocaine, the cocaine numbed their noses so they could not smell anything. Because a cocaine is a type of drug, the dogs were in a lot of pain that many dogs died.

What percentage of the Jewish population did the Nazi kill?

User Avatar
Wiki User said population in 1933 was 8,861,800 but in 1945 was 6,933,900 left. do the math 6,933,900/8,861,800x100=78%. Not how I was taught to calculate percentages. 8,861,800 in 1933 minus 6,933,900 left in 1945 is a decrease of 1,927,900. 1,927,900 divided by 8,861,800 equals .2175 x100=21.75% decrease
