Essay Topic 2

2. Do you think England and other European countries should have taken the initiative to stop the Germans from gearing for war?

3. What do you think England could have done differently before Germany's invasion of Austria and then Poland?

1. Research and write an informative essay on the state of Germany during the 2 decades prior to the outbreak of WWII. What is the economy like? What are the major political parties? What do they stand for? What is the make-up of the German society as far as religious, racial and class?

2. Read the book, Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler and write an informative essay about the ideas in the book.

3. Research and discuss Hitler's rise to power. What does he offer the German people? How is he received? Why do you think so many Germans listened to him?
