After analyzing the play of “The Tragedy of Julius Caesar” I found that the characteristics of betrayal, deception and exaggeration were abundant in the character of Cassius. Cassius was the leader of the conspirators against Caesar. There are similarities between Cassius and Adolf Hitler. Both had a hunger for power and control over their respective nations. Adolf Hitler was a tyrant leader in Germany. He was the head of the Nazi party and his aggressive foreign policy is considered to be a large factor attributing to World War II. The great depression in Germany created opportunity for Hitler. Germany was suffering and the people were willing to entertain any different options to make life better (Wikipedia ). Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany, giving him power over the legislative and executive branches of the government. This power was the beginning of his empire. The other existing parties at the time were intimidated and disbanded giving Hitler the power he was craving (Wikipedia ). Hitler was similar in my opinion to Cassius in that he was a very good speaker and had great influence on the German people by using rhetoric. His followers were strong; as a result, he was able to make the people believe that what he was doing was for the good of all. In his speech on April 10, 1923 he uses a rhetorical question “Today we have no longer any sword grasped in our fist-how can we have a successful economic policy?” (Hitler Historical Museum). Also, on December 4, 1940 he uses repetition of his words “Forty-six million Britishers dominate and govern approximately 16 million square miles of the surface of the earth. Thirty-seven million Frenchmen dominate and govern a combined area of approximately 4 milli... ... middle of paper ... ...yal. Neither will be forgotten and both will be remembered for their ruthless cold hearted actions. They did not think twice about taking the lives of others. Works Cited "Adolf Hitler." Wikipedia.

Adolf Hitler, a charismatic, Austrian-born demagogue, rose to power in Germany during the 1920s and early 1930s at a time of social, political, and economic upheaval. Failing to take power by force in 1923, he eventually won power by democratic means.

Adolf Hitlers’ Mein Kampf published July 18, 1925 outlined Hitler’s plan to reform Germany based on one true race. During this time period; shortly after World War One, Germany was on the bridge of economic, political, and social shambles. In 1919 the signing of the Treaty of Versailles threw Germany even closer to self destruction. The Treaty proposed new sanctions and relinquished territories from Germany, while in essence burdening the cost of the war on Germany. During this time of hardship the German people looked for a hero and a savior, who appeared in the image of Adolf Hitler bringing with him new ideas and a plan to return Germany to its hight in power. Based on the passage “A New form of Anti-Semitism” Hitler used the platform of anti-semitism to tighten his grip on an already weakened Germany referencing all that was wrong with the Jewish race and demeaning their purpose for existing. This one novella resulted in the rise of a new political party who tightened its grip on Germany and led to horrors in another World War that had never been seen before.
According to en.wikipedia.org and historyplace.cpm, Hitlers rise to power began in Germany when he joined the Nazi party in September, 1919. Deep anger about the first world war and the treaty of Versalies created an underlying bitterness in the German people which Hitlers viciousness and expansionism appealed, so the perty gave him support. He was imprisioned after the 1923 unich Bear hall putsch. The Bear hall putsch resulted in the deaths of four officers. He was sentenced to five years, during that time he wrote Mein Kampf. He was named chancellor on January 30, 1933 by president Paul Van Hidenburg. His rise to power could have ended if the Enabling Act of 1933 was not adopted. The Enabling Act of 1933 meant that Hitler could enact laws and endemocract in Germany. The Nazi party used force to scare the German Governmant into voting for the act. The day the voting for the Nazi troopers gathered outside the opera house, chanting,"Full power or else." under Hitlers rule, Germany was transformed into a racist totlaitarian state which controlled nearly all aspects for everyones life.
Hitler represented the evil side of any human beings in the world, and he had done many brutal actions towards people. Adolf Hitler was a little-known political leader whose early life had been marked by disappointment. He formed the Nazis party, where they shared the belief that Germany are required to overturn the Treaty of Versailles. During the Depression, many Germans turned to Hitler for security and firm leadership, ”With terrible economic conditions and rapid inflation, support for Hitler's party grew. By 1923, the Nazi's had 56,000 members and many more supporters” (Adolf Hitler Biography). Soon, President Hindenburg announced Hitler the chancellor and he came to power legally. With majority control, Hitler demanded absolute power and turned Germany into a totalitarian state. Hitler waited for the right time to step out and control the people, ”[Hitler] had a charismatic talent that he used for evil to accomplish something beneficial to him” (Maria Langstaff). With such power, Hitler abused it and o...
Nazi leader Adolf Hitler (1889-1945) was one of the most powerful and infamous dictators of the 20th century. After World War I, he rose to power in the National Socialist German Workers Party, taking control of the German government in 1933. His establishment of concentration camps to inter Jews and other groups he believed to be a threat to Aryan supremacy resulted in the death of more than 6 million people in the Holocaust. His attack on Poland in 1939 started World War II, and by 1941 Germany occupied much of Europe and North Africa. The tide of the war turned following an invasion of Russian and the U.S. entry into battle, and Hitler killed himself shortly before Germany was defeated.
By 1923, the party had grown from a few hundred into a membership of 55,000, plus another 15,000 in the SA. When the Weimar Republic was on the verge of collapse in the fall of 1923 Hitler and the Nazis decided to stage an armed uprising in Munich on November 8. Because of his involvement Hitler was arrested and put on trial for treason. He was sentenced to prison for five years. The Beer Hall Putsch proved important in Hitler’s career. Rather than discouraging him, Hitler was reinforced by his trial and imprisonment. He now decided to change his tactics. In 1920, Hitler reorganized the Nazi Party and ex...

(The History Place, The Beer Hall Putsch) Although Kahr, von Lossow, and Seisser were against the sudden overthrow, they reluctantly went along with Hitler’s plan, letting him take them out onto the stage and agree to Adolf’s speech for the people. “I am going to fulfill the vow I made to myself five years ago when I was a blind cripple in the military hospital-to know neither rest nor peace until the November criminals had been overthrown, until on the ruins of the wretched Germany of today there should have arisen once more a Germany of power and greatness, of freedom and splendor.” (The History Place, The Beer Hall Putsch) Hitler believed that his putsch had been a success and that he had became the new leader of Germany and the Nazi Party. Little did Hitler know that the government officials weren’t actually on his side. After he had overthrown the Bavarian government, Hitler left the beer hall to aid the failed military overthrow that his stormtroopers were in charge
