This paper studies the historical background leading to Adolf Hitler's rise to power and the tactics he used to maintain his power. The paper asserts that Hitler created a false sense of security in Germany, which allowed him to quickly rise to power and gain support of the people. It maintains that, through the rejection of the ideas of modernism and glorification of World War I, Hitler easily persuaded Germany to support him and everything that he stood for. The paper adds that the rise of Nazism in Germany allowed Hitler to become dictator. It concludes that Hitler's use of propaganda in particular allowed him to transform Germany from a country in ruin to a seemingly strong and thriving nation.

From the Paper:

"Another tool Hitler used to popularize himself was through the rejection of the ideas of modernism. Hitler rejected the new in hopes of reverting Germany back to its traditional ways. Modernism art before Hitler came to power represented Germany in a gruesome light. Hitler's goal was to symbolize the beauty of Germany in terms of racial purity, militarism, and heroism. Core values ruled over the thoughtful and philosophical. Many paintings images were very direct in their meanings of masculinity and power. Former modernist works were referred to as degenerate and either banned or put upon display for ridicule. For example, "Storm troops Advancing under Gas" by Otto Dix was a modernist painting that portrays the horrors of War."
