The Third Reich: Adolf Hitler, Nazi Germany, World War II And The Last German Empire

The Third Reich: Adolf Hitler, Nazi Germany, World

The First Reich: Charlemagne, king of the Franks, is declared ruler of the Holy Roman Empire. This empire dominates western Europe from 800 until 1806, when it is defeated by Napoleon. The Second Reich: All of Germany is united behind Prussia under the leadership of Otto von Bismarck, victor of the Franco-Prussian War. Only Germany's defeat in World War I can break the power of the second German empire.What was the Third Reich?In 1933, Adolf Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany after convincing other members of the Reichstag that the Nazi party was better for the country than their feared rivals, the Communists. Within the year, the President of the German Republic will be dead, and Hitler will declare himself supreme leader of Germany.But how did it happen?The Third Reich: Adolf Hitler, Nazi Germany, World War II and The Last German Empire takes you on a guided tour of German history for the last thousand years. You'll study the constitution of the Weimar republic and the Treaty of Versailles, and come to understand why Hitler believed it was crucial to build a new Nazi empire that was second to no one other nation in Europe in terms of military development. You'll learn how Hitler used the rhetoric of racism and nationalism to transform himself from a democratically elected member of government into a dictator whose word was law.Most importantly, you'll learn how those changes paved the way to World War II and the atrocities of the Holocaust.

Up for sale is a LOT of 25 Authentic And Original World War 2 Germany Currency, Really Nice 1, 5, & 10 Reichspfennig Zinc Coins. Contain The Nazi War Eagle Holding The Swastika. Various Years. All Minted In Nazi Germany!!! WWII Germans started issuing clearly identifiable coins (ie with swastika) from 1936. Although Hitlers run Germany were in power from 1933, the designs for the smaller denomination coinage were simply a continuation of "Weimarer Republik" designs. It was only from 1936 that the smaller denomination coins had the Nazi Reichsadler and Hakenkreuz (swastika) incorporated into the coin's design. Prior to 1940, small denomination coins were minted from "superior" metals ie copper (1 & 2 Reichspfennig), Brass Alloy (5 & 10 Reichspfennig), and depending upon the year either Nickel or Aluminum (50 Reichspfennig). From 1940, almost all the small denomination coins were minted from an zinc base metal. The exception to this were 50 Reichspfennig coins which were instead minted from an aluminum base metal. The World War 2 Germans had a number of mints (coin factories). Each mint location had its own identifiable letter. It is therefore possible to identify exactly which mint produced what coin by noting the mint mark (letter) on the coin. Not all mints were authorized to produce coins every year. The mints were also only authorized to produced a set number of coins with some mints allocated a greater production than others. Some of the coins with particular mint marks are therefore scarcer than others. On the smaller denomination Reichspfennig coins, the mint mark is found on the bottom center of the coin. A = Berlin B = Wien (Vi...

Germany: Memories of a Nation

Germany: Memories of a

For the past 140 years, Germany has been the central power in continental europe. Twenty-five years ago a new German state came into being. How much do we really understand this new Germany, and how do its people understand themselves?Neil MacGregor argues that, uniquely for any European country, no coherent, overarching narrative of Germany's history can be constructed, for in Germany both geography and history have always been unstable. Its frontiers have constantly shifted. Königsberg, home to the greatest German philosopher, Immanuel Kant, is now Kaliningrad, Russia; Strasbourg, in whose cathedral Wolfgang von Geothe, Germany's greatest writer, discovered the distinctiveness of his country's art and history, now lies within the borders of France. For most of the five hundred years covered by this book Germany has been composed of many separate political units, each with a distinct history. And any comfortable national story Germans might have told themselves before 1914 was destroyed by the events of the following thirty years.German history may be inherently fragmented, but it contains a large number of widely shared memories, awarenesses, and experiences; examining some of these is the purpose of this book. MacGregor chooses objects and ideas, people and places that still resonate in the new Germany—porcelain from Dresden and rubble from its ruins, Bauhaus design and the German sausage, the crown of Charlemagne and the gates of Buchenwald—to show us something of its collective imagination. There has never been a book about Germany quite like it.

Nazis: A Warning from History, The (Dbl

Nazis: A Warning from History, The (Dbl DVD)How could a political party as fundamentally evil and overtly racist as the Nazis come to power? This remains one of the most enigmatic questions of the last century. Acclaimed historian Laurence Rees examines what led a cultured nation at the heart of Europe to commit the atrocities it did. In so doing, he exposes popular myths and encourages understanding of the real forces that led to one of the darkest chapters in modern history. Was it simply the hypnotic power of Hitler's rhetoric? Did the Gestapo really impose themselves by terror on an unwilling population? Through interviews with witnesses and perpetrators, along with archive film and records, this six-part series unveils a more chilling reality.]]>

It is one of the oldest extant state symbols of Europe and is one of the oldest insignias in the world. Medieval Age and Holy Roman Empire The eagle's history as an emblem began very early. The Romans and their successors Byzantines (Greeks) reserved eagle imagery for only the most revered beings; namely, the supreme god and the emperor; and it served as a metaphor of invincibility. Later, through its rei rock eagle, referred to in German as the Reichsadler, on German soil probably dat...
