Nazism refers to the political and economic ideologies that ruled Germany from 1933 to 1945. With doctrines both totalitarian and nationalistic in nature, this movement was held and put into effect by the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NAZI) under the leadership of Adolf Hitler. Nazism was based upon the ideology of National Socialism, which incorporated fascism and totalitarianism into a regime that attempted to alleviate Germany's turmoil after World War I. The party had many intentions; military conquests, expansion of Germany's borders, oppose political positions and create the superior German race in both a physical and cultural manner. As the Depression and unemployment increased, so did the support of the Nazi party. This was due to guarantees of relief for the unemployed as well as the creation of an orderly and prosperous society for all Germans. Instead, the Nazi regime brought terrorism, war, and mass murder; all which contributed to the outbreak of World War II. .
The Nazi Party espoused totalitarian measures that radically changed the face of German politics, as the Reichstag was left powerless. In order to achieve their objectified authority, Hitler's campaign acted upon ridding the regime of any political opponents by changing the current government system among use of totalitarian skill. The entire political objective was first altered when the Nazi Party introduced the concept of "Emergency Decree". Author William Shirer described the policy as:.
