Secondary Autonomy and Responsibility in Nazi Germany 11 Dec. 2013 http://www.123helpme.com/view.asp?id=101575 Summary: The struggle for the people of Germany to find their rights and responsibilities in society has played a major role in Nazi ideology. Nazis believed in the volk, which means that people are seen in a sense of their race, not as an individual. Hitler believed that the German people were of the greatest of races. The rights of a person were based on their goal of preserving the volk, or their perspective regarding it. The peace treaty between Germany and Russia had left the people of Germany responsible for paying for the costs of the war. This created conflicts between middle and working class people, leading to the depression. This gave the Nazi

party the perfect opportunity to take control of the Germany society. The Nazi party gained strength in numbers so, then continued with activating policies that represented the Nazi partys views of individuals. The Nazis then used their principle of race as a factor to determine the citizenship and rights of the people. They thought that all Germans should be united together. They also believed that all members of this race should have the same cultural and spiritual ideas, and if not, they may not be considered a German citizen. Their principles included paying the pure Germans to reproduce and have many children so, that they could have a large population of the perfect race of people. The Battle for Births https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/deadmed.html Summary: The number of births, or birthrate was declining in Germany, and Hitler was receiving warnings about national death, and they were aiming to reverse this. In 1935, the martial health law banned the marriages and reproducing between what they deemed to be the hereditary healthy, and the people who were genetically unfit. For the people who were hereditary fit, it was their main concern to get married, and have children. The Biological State: Nazi Racial Hygiene, 1933-1939 https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/deadmed.html Summary: Hitlers deputy stated Nazism as applied biology, because public health measures were being taken to lessen the number of less valuable and racially foreign, people so, that the national body would be stronger, and so that the dangerous genes could be removed from the population. Most of the physicians, scientists, and Nazis embraced this idea to create a healthier, superior race. German Foreign Policy, 19331945 United States Holocaust Memorial Museum http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10005203 After the Nazi rise to power, Adolf Hitler's government conducted a foreign policy aimed at the incorporation of ethnic Germans living outside German borders into the Reich; German domination of Western Europe; and the acquisition of a vast new empire of "living space" in eastern Europe. The realization of German hegemony in Europe, Hitler calculated, would require war, especially in Eastern Europe. The "racially inferior" Slavs would be driven east of the Urals, enslaved, or exterminated. Besides acquiring Lebensraum, Hitler anticipated that the "drive to the East" would destroy Bolshevism.
