I was born in Munich, Germany, in 1920. I lived there during the rise of the Nazi Party and left for the U.S.A. in 1938.
The main elements of the Nazi regime were the suppression of dissent, the purging of the dissenters and undesirables, the persecution of communists, Jews and homosexuals and the ideal of the Aryans as the master race.
The policies started immediately after Hitler came to power, at first out of sight but escalated gradually, leading to the Second World War and the Holocaust. Meanwhile most Germans were lulled into complacency by all sorts of wonderful projects and benefits.
Much like Hitler, Trump used racist populist outrage to gain power by playing on the base fears of voters. They both also promised outrageous perks to citizens. Trump has vowed to bring millions of jobs back to the United States without a tangible plan to do so. Trump has already been caught in numerous lies about the various negotiations he is conducting to save American jobs. These lies include Trump taking credit for saving jobs at Ford (He never did), saving jobs at Carrier, which Trump profited from and the “saved” jobs were non-existent. Most recently Trump lied about being the force behind Sprint bringing 5,000 jobs back to the United States, except the plan had already been in place since April. Read full story here
