Submit a well-researched, carefully composed analysis of some aspect of the rise of fascism in Germany during the 1920s and 1930s. Please narrow the topic to keep it manageable and, if you wish, compare what you’ve researched in Germany to recent developments in Europe and the United States. Sample topics include: Nazism’s overtures to women, to business, to industrialists, or to youth; the Hitler cult; failures of the Weimar republic or the social democrats or the German communists; the leadership circle around Hitler (Goebbels or Göring); the scapegoating and prejudice; Nazism’s public relations (literature, Mein Kampf; film); the 1936 Olympics; the role of the paramilitary; Nazism’s peculiar brand of ethno-nationalism.
