Why did the Germans follow Hitler?In this journal I wanna try to explain all of you, from what I know and read, why the Germans followed Hitler. Many people think, all the Germans were evil racists and everyone wanted to kill jews or hated people that were not blonde.

Before we come to the 3. Reich, I want to explain you the situation before all that happened.
We know 1871, the first german nation the Deutsches Kaiserreich was founded thanks to Bismarck and Wilhelm I and all the german states. During the Kaiserreich the jews got full rights by law and they became very often proud Germans, they changed their names to typicall german ones like Grünbaum, Spielberg, Eisenberg and so on.
There was also an antisemitism, but it was the antisemitism that was used all around Europe, not only in Germany. After some french and british authors made theories about races and that jews are not part of the european race in the 19th century, also german authors started to believe in it.

Wolfenstein: The New Order review.Many authors ask themselves ‘What if Hitler had won?’. With The Man In The High Castle, Philip K. Dick imagined a brutalised globe ruled by the victorious Axis Powers. MachineGames posed the same question when developing Wolfenstein: The New Order, fashioning a bombastic arcade FPS with a historical twist. But, as this review will outline, it is also much more then that.Wolfenstein: The New Order review.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It’s 1960 and the maniacal Nazi vision for the globe has been realized. In this image, we see monolithic Berlin. The domed building is actually MachineGames’ vision of the Volkshalle (People’s Hall), which the real-life Nazis planned to build after subjugating Europe.

We added a new video permanently on the main-page of the group, because it really touched me.
It is about the downfall of the Germans and their cities in the 2. world war and the big resurrection!
You must know, no country was ever bombed so badly like Germany, the british and american bombers destroyed around 1000 historical cities, often causing a so called firestorm, even in the last weeks of the war, like in Dresden, Würzburg or Potsdam. The capital city Berlin was a collection of ruins, what the Germans built in 2000 years, was destroyed...the allied thought, Germany will become an unimportant land of farmers now, a borderland between east and west. But they were completely wrong, because they forget the character of the german folk! Hard working, disciplinated people that help each other!
And so Germany could rise from the ruins, like a phoenix from ashes and after a few decades, Germany is again the strongest economy in Europe, after two lost world wars. After e

By February of 1945, thousands upon thousands of panic stricken refugees who managed to survive
the grueling exodus from the eastern regions flooded into Dresden and other towns and cities seeking
shelter and help. On the 14th and 15th of February, Dresden was incinerated. Virtually every city
that refugees were known to have flocked to, from Kiel to Swinemünde, suffered from major
catastrophic Allied bombing attacks as part of "Operation Thunderclap" and "Operation Clarion" at
the hight of their exodus.
Two Allied air raids were carried out on the old city of Königsberg on August 26/27 and August

I want to catch your attention for a video from 1936, a video about Berlin. But not any of this one-sided scenes you see on the history channel, with evil or dramatic music in the background.. here you see a video about the normal Berlin from the german side.
You don´t see only Nazis, you see normal happy people, that go drinking, dancing, swimming and are proud of their blooming city.
And you see how the buildings in Berlin looked like, before the awful bombing.

islam.I was a muslim from the 14th of July, 2012. Well, I am an ex muslim actually. Maybe in arab countries I should be killed for that I left the religion but please, don't hate me. I am not a bad person. I believe in God hardly but I just got lost. I couldn't find my way in Islam, I was alone with all that, no one was next to me to help me and teach about Islam. The problem is that being muslim here is not easy at all, I was forced to be muslim by my ex-boyfriend from Egypt. He was intimidating me and forcing to join islam. After I did and found it a good choice, I prayed 5 times a day, do fast in Ramadan and so on... Then I become hated among my family and friends. It was all really too hard and I was becoming mentaly sick of that all... I decided to leave Islam for my own safety. Just... Please, don't hate me, don't call me a bitch, slut and whatever... Many people hate me already... Too many. Do I deserve? If you notice any problem,islam.1 year ago in Personal More Like This

The Icelandic Atlantic Commonwealth SeriesThis map series deals with an alternative timeline set in 2017, in which Iceland is a regional power in the North Atlantic. With its fictional population of over one million, a sovereign Icelandic state has been around since the late 19th century and Icelandic traders, fishermen and whalers have roamed the Northern seas for centuries. Furthermore, the Norse population of Greenland never died out and is in this scenario a native population of Greenland, along with the Inuit, comprising of roughly the half of its 100.000 strong population. Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Jan Mayen and Svalbard are all territories of the Icelandic Atlantic Commonwealth which is centered in the great maritime city of Reykjavík.The Icelandic Atlantic Commonwealth Series2 months ago in Personal More Like This

However, man has a short-term memory when it comes to conflict and in 1939 the world once again plummeted into war, the war that overshadowed the 'War to end all war' until the present day. The British and their former commonwealth and colonies always stood out when it came to remembrance and the First World War, and have always done so in a very respectful manner, other nations on the other hand were less clear-cut when it came to this.
Lately though, that changed when the the centennial of The Great War approached and all of the sudden almost everybody had a refound interest in the conflict. The question that poses itself now
Viennas Natural History MuseumToday we have another anniversary to celebrate , one that gives me the special opportunity to talk about the History of Natural Science in Austria. On 10th August 1889 the Natural History Museum in Vienna was opened to the public. http://www.nhm-wien.ac.at/enViennas Natural History Museum1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It is located at the Ringsstraße and with more than 30.000.000 specimens is among the largest natural history museums in the world. The origin of the museum lies with the scientific collections of Emperor Franz Stefan and Maria Theresa. Once these collections grew too large to be kept at the Hofburg, Emperor Franz Joseph held an architect’s competition to construct two new museums – one for natural History the other for art History. In 1871 the two architects, Karl Hasenauer and Gottfried Semper started constructing the buildings.

I thought about to make a dA group about the country were everyone could make coat of arms, flags, logos and maps of the cities town and states and I also planned to make two metro maps for two large cities and logos for state companies and Government organisations.
The nation has a lot of minorites for example I added two towns a welsh and a scottish one to the map to make it more diverse and I'll would also have no problem to add more cites/towns or change the name of cities/towns. I'll post the first ma when I'll have a name for the country.
My question is if somebody would be interested to participate or bring ideas to this?
