Nazi Germany was a totalitarian regime that ruled over Germany from 1933 until 1945. It was led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party, who sought to create an authoritarian state and establish a master race of Aryan people. During this period, all aspects of German life were controlled by the Nazis, including politics, economy, culture, and media. Nazi ideology focused on racial purity and anti-Semitism; Jews were particularly targeted for persecution and extermination during the Holocaust. The Nazi regime also oppressed religious and ethnic minorities, disabled people, LGBT people, political opponents, communists, trade unionists and anyone seen as a threat to its rule.The economic policies of Nazi Germany included rearmament programs that drained public funds away from social welfare programs; these policies created massive unemployment in Germany in the 1930s. The Nazis also implemented forced labor programs where those deemed unfit for military service were sent to factories or farms under dangerous conditions; this labor was often used to support their military efforts or help build infrastructure projects like roads or canals. Additionally, many businesses that lost money due to government-imposed price controls had their assets confiscated by the Nazis in order to bolster their own coffers.Nazi propaganda played an important role in promoting its ideology throughout German society. It glorified war as a means of restoring national pride while simultaneously demonizing those who did not conform to its idealsparticularly Jewsas subhuman enemies of society who must be eliminated for the betterment of all Germans. Propaganda was used to promote racial hatred toward Jews through books such as Mein Kampf (My Struggle), which promoted anti-Semitic ideas such as blaming them for all economic woes faced by Germans during World War I.
