German People began to idealize Hitler, even though

German nationalism began to expand and
develop even before world war2. In 1993 Hitler was elected prime minister of
Germany.  Since then he grasped every
opportunity to gain his power. Hitler used his intimidation tricks, lies and
propaganda to manipulate Germany’s government and ordinary people into Nazi
regime. At the time of ruin, depression and poverty he offered people job
opportunities, therefore people began believe in his aim of improving economic
situation and his ideology of “greater Germany”. People began to idealize
Hitler, even though his only aim and intention was to start a war.

David Crew described this period as
“politics of the full-wage pockets and Nazi economic miracle” (Crew, 1994, p. 4).  Stephan Evera argues: “if economic conditions
deteriorate, publics become more receptive to scapegoat myths, hence such myths
are more widely believed, hence war is more likely”. From my perspective, Evera
supports Crew’s idea of politics strong wages and the fact Jewish was taken as
an inferior minority. “The Nazis told people to blame the Jews because many
Jewish citizens were still wealthy while everyone else was monetarily
suffering, using economic inequalities to agitate relations between groups” (Ghostlaw, 2008).  In fact, German people were looking for
someone to blame, because come of individual people were blinded by Nazi
regime. They believed Hitler does everything for them, despite of it was not
true, Hitler was only using his intimidation methods which played a key role in
Hitler’s rise to power. “Sunny side”, Crew’s expression for new mass consumerism
determined as material benefits of industrial society, in order to integrate German
workers into Nazi system. “German workers would have paid vacations, go on
holidays or on ocean cruises sponsored by the Nazi “Strength through joy”
organization” (Crew, 1994, p. 8). He also states that foreign workers
were “racially inferior” and economy gave “Aryan’s” (German workers) a position
of privilege, because of this some German workers displayed sympathy for their
position and for suffering of foreign workers. “There rarely appeared any small
act of kindness, such as illegally passing a foreign worker piece of bread. Other
German workers flagrantly mistreated foreign workers” (Crew, 1994, p. 10). As an example we
can take Jewish nationality, Hitler used his power to make people believe Jewish
are cause of an economic depression.

the newfound nationalism was based on the fact Jewish citizens are enemies and
they are threating this national security. To quote from Stephen Evera “Nazi
German nationalism was an extreme case of minority oppressing nationalism”.
Evera also claims this kind of nationalism is the rarest and can be the
