1. After watching Hitler's 1934 Speech at Nuremburg, I found that Hitler mentions the notion of a "fixed pole" as it relates to a stable government or leader. The German people were unsure of who they were and what their country was. They did not like the Weimar Republic, because they had agreed to the Treaty of Versailles. This treaty caused Germany to be unstable and poor. The Republic did not have the support of the people, but when Hitler entered the picture. he was like a savior to the people, he was their leader. He was a man that would make their homeland strong again. The "Party" refers to the new Germany and the Nazi Party. Hitler was all about the "Aryan" race. He wanted Germany to be pure and larger. He wanted all the Germanic speaking peoples into his empire. He wanted the best and only the purest Germans to be a part of his country an his new Germany for the next 1,000 years.
After reading The Nuremberg Laws, the "Jews" were labeled and socially demeaned. Jew refers to those who practice the Jewish faith, but to Hitler and many before Jew was a separate race not a separate religion. According to Article two or the FIrst Supplementary Decree of November 14, 1935, one is not considered a Jew if one or two grandparents practiced the Jewish faith. A Jew is also one who is descended from at least three grandparents who practice the Jewish faith and were part of the Jewish religion community. Jews were not allowed to vote, because they were not considered citizens of the Reich. They also have no tight to hold public office.
