Third Reich

Page history last edited by Andrea Brownstein 11 years, 8 months ago

 

After the horror of the facts of the Third Reich--

A state-sponsored policy of murder

12 million dead

Books, art, history itself, completely destroyed

Come the questions:

          How?

          Why?

          What does it mean?

 

The political movement called National Socialism, abbreviated for all time to “Nazi,” took advantage of the intersection of

Nationalism

German history of the 1st and 2nd Reichs

The after-effects of the armistice that ended World War I

An unstable economy

Psychology

The habit of obedience

The need for order

The need to belong

Nostalgia for a mythologized past

Long-standing anti-Semitism

Science

Rise of Darwinian thought

                        Inventions and discoveries in chemistry, physics, biology

The desire to categorize all aspects of human and animal life

Modernism

Industrialism

Secularism

Existentialist fragmentation

 

Their tools were

Reason & law

Rhetoric

Aesthetics: non-verbal influences on behavior & thought

Fear & intimidation
