Now, this episode explains the measures that the Nazis used to gain control over the German people. It is not an attempt to justify, or be apologetic of the responsibility for the horrors committed during the Nazi regime. But it is also not a blanket condemnation of Germans. What happened in Germany starting in 1933 should serve us all as a warning to what can happen when you let loose authoritarian power, normalize lies as an acceptable part of political discourse, and make mainstream the disregard of basic human values. We should all think of that although the Nazis were especially efficient in their implementation of an authoritarian system, they are by far not the only ones that have succeeded in seducing whole a nation into blind hatred and acceptance of the suffering and death of others to forward an ideology. We should remember that freedom and democracy is essential, but also that words matters. The beginning of oppression starts with an endless stream of lies that confuse public discourse to the point that facts don't matter anymore and truth becomes fiction. This video shows us what can happen next. Our mantra as a channel is to focus on the facts, not our opinions, not our 'truth' - just the facts m'am - and that is what we have presented here, for better or worse. Before you post, remember our rules (they serve exactly the purpose of keeping all of this free of hatred and focused on the facts):

STAY CIVIL AND POLITE we will delete any comments with personal insults, or attacks.
AVOID PARTISAN POLITICS AS FAR AS YOU CAN we reserve the right to cut off vitriolic debates.
HATE SPEECH IN ANY DIRECTION will lead to a ban.
RACISM, XENOPHOBIA, OR SLAMMING OF MINORITIES will lead to an immediate ban.

Do you think Hindenburg went to sleep with his pickelhaube on?

I hope this channel will cover how Austria turned into the austrofascist dictatorship

Again! You cut through the flax and fluff, highlighting the key events, and techniques, that explain how the highly educated German people, helped by the experienced and savvy industrialists, are lead down a path that we now can't imagine was possible. Your "Between 2 Wars" stand well above your most excellent WWI and WWII weekly series. You guys just keep knocking it out of the park. Bravo!

"Extreme by Nazi Standards" that's a very scary thought that the Nazis would have officials that would worry even them!

This particularly dark episode of history is made more endurable for me by the fact that Indy saying "Röhm" sounds so much like inspector Clouseau saying "Room"

Is it just me or does Hindenburg have a look of "I think I might've destroyed Germany & the world" in the photos now?

I really love these episodes that explain how absolute power was slowly and methodically obtained. Too often, pieces on this period go directly from Nazi rallies to the war.

Will you make episodes about the Spanish civil war, Italian invasion of Abyssinia and early parts of the 2nd Japanese-chinese war?

The US was practicing eugenicism at the same time as well, by the way.

Whilst pondering this very question myself I have often wondered how I would have behaved under the same circumstances. Definitely I would have been on the side of the that to do so would endanger all those I care about! So sadly I have concluded that I too would have gone with the flow. Add economic hardship and a degenerate political system that does not represent me and it is surely inevitable that a road you start on even with misgivings is one you would find increasingly difficult to deviate from. This is what scares me so much in Europe nowadays. The very organisation devised to make it impossible to repeat the disastrous wars of the last century are unwittingly driving us in that direction in this century. I weep!

Not all german soldiers were nazis. Gerbles said it best. 'All of us being charged are yes men' 'cause the no men are all dead'

So Rohm overstepped, turned himself into a liability and gave Hitler and the gang an excuse to purge him while also ingratiating themselves with the population terrorized by the SA. All other factors aside, I find the NSDAP's political maneuverings in their rise nothing short of impressive, just grabbing one opportunity after another.
