They eventually took it by force. Prison camps arose from it.

You know what that led to...
Genocide.


Yes, Germany went after the wealth in the nation, to use for themselves and remove power from very rich people in the communities.

In the 1930s Germany became a very wealthy industrialized nation, wealthy enough to try and take all of Europe by force. What they did with that wealth has nothing to do with it. They also became wealthy again after the war because they were a debt free nation...which is of course why next time around they were not looking to kill people .

No, actually the rich became much more rich under nazi control. The industries stayed in private hands and had a huge customer in the military disctatorship

Insert Middle East, where Europe is, and we jumped from the 1930's to the 1950's and the Saw of Iran, beyond, to today and the start of real combat that will draw many nations into a fight.

The Jewish, were the bankers and the majority of business owners. The Germans were the labor, which socialized. The military heads got rich.

First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me,
and by that time there was no one
left to speak up for me.

If that's exactly what Germany did in the 1930s, I know several descendants of Ostpreussen landowners who'd be very surprised to hear it, since they have all been labouring under the impression that it was actually what the Soviets did in the 1940s.

Of course you are correct to a large degree which begs the question.

How is it that people around here like the OP come up with such completely wrong thread starting statements.

I think they have been so brainwashed watching Fox news using this very same thing, hour after hour day after day that starting a discussion on a false basis seems an OK way to proceed. For those of us who live in the real world it just seems really stupid!!!

It was before the Nazi it was during the Weimar Republic and that's why Hitler came to power.
