The Nazi Regime achieved this through strategic implementations of propaganda. This desensitized the public into believing Hitler could help Germany in its time of economic and political struggle. A few people were surprised by the amount of propaganda used by the Nazis.

They were a convincingly stable economic party with claims that they were able to put onto other people, which promoted his anti-Semitic society.

Nazism was so radically different from the Weimar Republic, so why were Germans so attracted to it? Unlike the Weimar Republic, Nazism appealed to every class and age, its social Darwinist approach allowed anyone to rise up in the ranks, and the Gau made people feel in power. Hitler took any flaw of the Nazi Party, and blamed the current government for being unstable. Hitler made the German people feel like they mattered by offering stability in a time of chaos.

They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people" (Hitler). The world was given a piece of literature that was a piece of propaganda that benefited the Germans in many ways.
