the organisation :: essays research papers
In a time of peace and prosperity one of the most brutal organisations ever known to man was formed. An organisation made up of murders, theives, and rapists. The organization weÃ¢â¬â¢ve come to know as the Ã¢â¬Å"NazisÃ¢â¬ . Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã On January 2,1919, two men by the names of Karl Harrer and Anton Drexler founded a group called the Ã¢â¬Å"German WorkersÃ¢â¬â¢ PartyÃ¢â¬ . It started out as nothing more than a few blue collar workers getting together to gripe about the government. Anton Drexler was described by Robert Leckie in his book delivered from evil as a toolmaker in the munich railyard a working man. He was a tall, spare man, as undistinguished as his dab of mustache and rimless glasses.(38) Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã But this harmless simple group was about to take a turn for the worse. On september 19,leured by the possibility to make hisself known, Adolf Hitler joined the german workersÃ¢â¬â¢ party. Moving quick Hitler soon became the public speaker for the party. With obtaining this position Hitler could finaly let the people hear his views. When he outlined the parties platform he put the german workersÃ¢â¬â¢ party in a positon to become a political power in germany and capitalizing on this oppertunaty they changed their names from german workersÃ¢â¬â¢ party to the National Socalist German workersÃ¢â¬â¢ party, which would soon become known as the Nazi party.(lace 9) Ã Ã Ã Ã Ã Nothing more was heard from germanys Nazi party for another three years untill the morning of november 8, 1923, when a column of three thousand Nazis marched toward MunichÃ¢â¬â¢s central plaza. Arm-in-arm infront were Ludendorff, Goring, Hitler, and max von scheubner-Richter the four leaders of the Nazi party. At the odenplatz they found their way barred by a hundredd police armed with bayonets fixed to their rifles. As the two forces were about to come together, a shot rang out no one could tell from which side. In an instant there were volleys of gunfire from both directions. Goring fell, shot in the thigh, scheubner-richter was fatally wounded and, in falling, dragged Hitler to the pavement and separated his shoulder. Nineteen Nazis were killed and dozens were wounded. Only lundendorff continued to march forward and was arrested on the spot. The so- called Ã¢â¬Å"Beer Hall PutschÃ¢â¬ had failed. Two days later Hitler was arrested. Goring and Hess fled to Austria. Rohm and the other top Nazis were rounded up and arrested. The party was declared banned by the government.
