This photo shows how Jews were eventually hung to death after being tortured and overworked. I chose this picture as it shows how powerful the Nazi rule was that it managed to a huge population of the Jews which caused a huge number of deaths in the end after using them for labour work. Thus, this torturous moment shows that Nazi rule was not beneficial for Germany as many people died.
This photo shows women in Nazi Germany being discriminated by the Nazis. The Nazis were very male-dominated and anti-feminist. Nazi philosophy idealised the role of women as child-bearer and creator of the family. Mothers who had more than 8 children were given a gold medal. I chose this source as it clearly shows how the Nazis exerted control over the people by implementing such a policy. Job discrimination against women was ridiculous and many of them lost jobs. Thus, Nazi rule did not benefit Germany.
This video shows how Hitler and the Nazis visited the Germans during Nazi Germany. During the visits, there were probably propaganda involved. I chose this source as it showed how the Germans perceived Hitler and the Germany rule, judging from their facial expressions when they were visited. The Germans were happy, and positive vibes can be felt. Thus, it shows that Germans' lives were good, thus Nazi rule was beneficial for Germany.
This video shows how The Nazis reduced Germans' unemployment during Nazi Germany. The Nazis implemented a major program of public works, such as building and repairing roads, railways and houses for the Germans. With Germany building up its armed forces, thousands of jobs in iron, steel, aviation and shipbuilding were created. After 1935, conscription of men into the army also helped reduce the unemployment figures. I chose this source as it clearly shows the Germans' happiness in the video. Thus, Nazi rule was seen as a benefit to the country.
This photo shows German farmers enjoying life during Nazi Germany. The farmers are living a happy and undisturbed life, which means that they were treated well during Nazi Germany. Thus, it shows that life was beneficial in Germany under the Nazi rule.
This photo shows Germans holding up signboards to voice out their concerns to Hitler, who is the leader. I chose this source as it shows the problems Germany faced during Nazi Germany time but Hitler was more concerned about the fact that he is able to control all Germans. Thus, his lack of concern shows that Nazi rule was not beneficial for Germans.
This photo shows a group of children who were extremely overworked and was not given sufficient food and basic necessities. I chose this source as it clearly shows that apart from adults, children were also ill treated by the Nazi government, causing them to be severely underweight and bones can be seen on their body. This means that a fraction of the German population are being treated harshly, thus showing that life was not beneficial in Germany under Nazi rule.
