Germany

Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party came to power in Germany in January 1933, as the head of a coalition government.  But on March 23, 1933, the Reichstag passed an Enabling Act giving him permanent emergency powers, freeing him from the limitations imposed by a parliamentary system.  In August 1934, following the death of President von Hindenburg, Hitler merged the office of Chancellor and President together and required to armed forces to swear an oath of loyalty him.  In February 1938 Hitler became Supreme Commander of the armed forces, and replaced the war ministry with a Supreme Headquarters (OKW).

Following the Reichstag fire of February 1933, a state of emergency was declared on a permanent basis.  It allowed the police to take political prisoners into "protective custody." The  first concentration camp was opened in Germany, at Dachau, for political opponents of the Nazi regime.   Herman Goering initiated a new secret police to root our opponents of the Nazi regime in Bavaria.  In April 1933, it was named the Gestapo (Secret Police Office).  Other political police were organized throughout Germany.  They were gradually centralized under Heinrich Himmler and his deputy Reinhard Heydrich.  In June 1936 Himmler was appointed Chief of German Police, with extraordinary powers.  In September 1939 the Reich Main Security Office (RSHA) was established to bring together the whole security apparatus of the State and the Nazi Party. Between 1933 and 1939 well over 200,000 Germans were imprisoned for political crimes. In the latter year over 150,000 Germans were in "protective custody" without trial.

Hitler and the Nazis also set a course over the next half decade to systematically plunder the Jewish wealth of Germany.  The process began on April 1, 1933, when the Nazi leaders undertook a nationwide boycott of Jewish-owned businesses and on April 7, 1933, with the enactment of a law excluding "non-Aryans" from government employment. In September 1935 the so-called Nuremberg laws were adopted placing restrictions not only on Jews but also the Sinti and Roma (gypsies).  During the next four years Jews were gradually excluded from German life, in hopes they would emigrate from Germany.  To emphasize the desire for them to leave, on the night of November 9, 1938, Nazis destroyed 177 synagogues and some 7,500 Jewish shops were destroyed. About half of the Jews did leave Germany between 1933 and 1939.

Besides wanting to rid Germany of its Jews Hitler and Nazis desired to increase Germany's living space, by war if necessary.  This would mean taking action against the League of Nations and the Disarmament Conference at Geneva.  In October 1933 Hitler pulled Germany out of these organizations and set about planning German expansion, both geographically and militarily.  In March 1935 Hitler, disregarding the Versailles Treaty, formally announced the re-establishment of Germany's armed forces and German rearmament.  In March 1936 Hitler successfully sent military forces into the demilitarized zone of the Rhineland and occupied the territory.  That summer Hitler established a Four-Year plan to secretly prepare the Germany economy and military for war in 1940.

Hitler placed Hermann Goering in charge of the Four-Year Plan and instructed him to develop a "blockade-free" economy where vital war materials would be produced in Germany instead of imported.  During the 1936-1938 period Goering initiated expensive investments programs in basic chemicals, synthetic fuel oil and rubber, aluminum and iron-ore extraction, as well as initiating an improved agricultural program.  Between 1936 and 1939 almost two-thirds of all industrial investment was devoted to the implementation of the Four-Year Plan.  Along with this economic strategy, Hitler greatly increased military expenditures.

Hitler then set his sights on Czechoslovakia and Austria.  In March 1938, Hitler forced Austrian into the Reich and by the Munich agreement of September 29, 1938, Germany was given the Sudetenland.  Six months later Hitler sent his troops to occupy the rest of Czechoslovakia.

As the 1930s ended, Hitler and Nazi Germany began to exert considerable international influence, particularly in trade.  Trade agreements were made with Hungary, which possessed large oil and bauxite deposits; Yugoslavia, which possessed vital minerals; and Rumania, which possessed oil and grain.

After signing a nonaggression pact with Soviet Russia in late August 1939, Germany proceeded to invade Poland on September 1, 1939.

In the spring of 1940 Germany invaded and defeated Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and France.  The next spring Germany invaded North Africa, Yugoslavia, and Greece, and in June 1941, the Soviet Union.  On December 11, 1941, Germany declared war on the United States.

German and Austrian Jews began being deported to ghettos in eastern Europe in the fall of 1941. Extermination of the Jews began at the Chelmno death camp in occupied Poland on December 8, 1941.  On January 20, 1945 a group of 15 Nazi leaders met at Wannsee (section of Berlin) to discuss the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question."  During the year Nazi death camps in occupied Poland at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec, and Majdanek-Lublin, began the mass murder of the Jews and others.

During 1943 and 1944 the tide began to turn against Nazi Germany and its Axis powers.  In June 1944, the Allies landed in France and began pushing towards Berlin.  Meanwhile, the Soviets pushed the Germans out of the Soviet Union and continued on to Berlin.  By the spring of 1945, Germany, although still holding on to vast amount of territory, was weakened to the point of being able to coordinate a resistance to the Allied advances.  With Berlin surrounded Hitler committed suicide on April 30, 1945.

Until Germany surrendered in May 1945, it had acquired vast amounts of territory, property, and financial wealth, and Hitler's plans for "Final Solution of the Jewish Question," resulted in the death of over six million Jews and countless other millions. (68)

On May 8, 1945, Germany surrendered unconditionally to the Allies.  On June 5, 1945, a four- nation Allied Control Council became the de facto government of Germany.  For purposes of control, Germany was divided into four national occupational zones, each headed by a Military Governor.  On March 28, 1948, the Soviet Union walked out of the Allied Control Council.  The United States, the United Kingdom, and the Benelux countries agreed on May 31, 1948, to set up a German state comprising the three western zones.  The Federal Republic of Germany was proclaimed on May 23, 1949.  Agreements in Paris in 1954 giving the Federal Republic full independence and complete sovereignty came into force on May 5, 1955.
