Nazi Propaganda: 1933-1945

            Propaganda is a biased point of view, which is promoted to influence peoples actions and opinions. Propaganda in Nazi Germany is mainly used for encouraging their ideology and manipulating people forming fear and hatred. In Nazi Germany Joseph Goebbels was in charge of propaganda. On February 27th 1933 the Reichstag building went up in flames. Hitler said that Marianus van der Lubbe, a Dutch, communist was the culprit. This resulted in the German people fearing a hostile take over from the Communists and therefore President von Hindenburg signed for an emergency decree for The Protection of the People and the State. .
             Propaganda was very successful in this case as the President and the citizens of Germany feared the Communists and thanked Hitler for his decisive action, which saved their Nation from Bolshevism. This was significant as the Communists were also forbidden from running in the election and therefore it would be easier for the Nazi party to achieve of the votes and earn a majority of seats in the Reichstag. The Enabling Act was a law for The Protection of People and the State. Hitler twisted this to his advantage as he for the public as he put across it was for their benefit when in reality Hitler declared that groups he didnt like or who opposed him would be labelled enemies of the state and he could send them to concentration camps and had the banned from running in the election. Hitler was using peoples fears against them and by doing this he gained their trust, he then exploited their trust by manipulating people into thinking that the Communists were coming for them. By using anti-communist propaganda he would gain the votes of people who feared communism. This method of propaganda was successful for Hitler as there was a lack of over ground opposition as parties were scared of Hitlers power to make them be portrayed as enemies if the state and sent to concentration camps.
