die sozialen Errungenschaften im Deutschen Reich waren einzigartig und es gab auf der ganzen Welt nichts Vergleichbares

National Socialism is a worldview that unites folk nationalism with socialism. The National Socialist worldview is based on the principle of leadership and the concept of race. The creation of the national community, the shaping of personalities and the principle of “common good comes first,” are fundamental ideas. National Socialism expressly recognizes the people and opposes Marxism and liberalism, among other things. Today it is dismissed as “the unattainable and absolute evil” ; In this case, the FRG regime does not permit an objective analysis and assessment. --The chronicle entries are unfortunately all in German.--

In 1933 the National Socialists came to power in the German Reich. With the conclusion of the Reich Concordat with the Vatican and the signing of the Quadripartite Pact with France, Great Britain and Italy, Germany is a reliable and peaceful partner. Leaving the League of Nations demonstrates Hitler's determination to no longer accept the humiliation of Germany through Versaille.

The National Socialist regime under Adolf Hitler further consolidated its power in the German Reich. The economic policy in the German Reich is characterized by the efforts of the Nazi government to take the unemployed off the streets through gigantic job creation programs. On March 21, 1934, Adolf Hitler opened the "work battle", in which mainly motor vehicles, highways and roads were built.

With the reintroduction of an army of conscripts with a peacekeeping force of 500,000 men and the reconstruction of the German Air Force and a submarine fleet, the German government is tearing apart the unsavory "peace treaty" of Versailles (which was mainly drawn up under Jewish influence) from 1919, who explicitly prohibited each of these steps.

The whole world looks at Germany. At the Olympic Games, the 150,000 foreign guests are presented with a hospitality-loving German empire that is always concerned with the positive demonstration of its new regime. The sporting successes of the German team do the rest to make the games a complete success for Nazi Germany.

An important era in the history of technology ended in 1937. With the disaster at Lakehurst, where the airship “Hindenburg” exploded shortly before landing on US soil, the era came to an end in which aviation took the step from the frenzy of daring inventors to the promising transport sector. The development of further zeppelins is discontinued in the German Reich.

Fuhrer and Chancellor Adolf Hitler, who has been in power for five years, celebrates two foreign policy triumphs in 1938: in March he can join Austria to the German Reich, and in the Munich Agreement in September France and Great Britain accept the invasion of German troops into the Sudeten German areas of Czechoslovakia. The physicist Otto Hahn succeeds in the first nuclear fission.

The Second World War began on September 1, 1939 with the Polish declaration of war. Contrary to what leader and chancellor Adolf Hitler expected, Great Britain and France fulfilled their alliance obligations to Poland and declared war on the German Reich on September 3rd. The countries of the British Commonwealth also enter into armed conflict against the Third Reich.

The year 1940 was marked by the German military conquests in Europe. The war, which began with the successful German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, extends to the northern and western parts of the European continent. All of Europe is brought into a state of war; existing power relations and political structures are overturned.

Two events determine what happened in 1941 and have an impact on the course of the Second World War: the German preventive attack on the Soviet Union in June as an expression of the German leadership's belief in its own invincibility and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December, which marked the beginning of the war The United States and thus initiated the defeat of the German Empire in 1945.

The overexpansion of the military power of the German Reich in the third year of the war is also increasingly noticeable for the German civilian population. The British area bombardment of Lübeck at the end of March and the first 1000 bomber attack on Cologne at the end of May usher in a new phase in the air war against the territory of the German Reich. At the end of the year, the Allies dominated European airspace.

The Allied bombing raids on the German Reich can hardly be effectively prevented by German air defense. The Ruhr region is one of the most severely affected regions, but the imperial capital Berlin is also increasingly under attack. Joseph Goebbels announces in the Berlin Sportpalast, in which he - under the roaring applause of the invited audience - the "total war".

Not only Europe, but the whole world is affected by the vortex of war events. 40 states were at war with the German Reich at the end of the year. The world powers, the Soviet Union, the USA and Great Britain do everything possible to force the National Socialist German state with leader and Chancellor Adolf Hitler to lead unconditional surrender.

Fighting continues unabated in the European arena until the end. From the east, the Soviet armies are advancing to the Reich. A catastrophe of unprecedented devastation is dawning on the German civilian population in the eastern regions. In endless treks she tries to get to the west in the freezing cold. In an unprecedented campaign, the German Navy succeeded in evacuating millions of people across the Baltic Sea. Almost the entire European continent is in ruins when the Second World War ends.
