An excellent Canadian 2-part miniseries that explores Adolf Hitler’s rise and his early consolidation of power during the years after the First World War and focuses on how the embittered, politically fragmented and economically buffeted state of German society following the war made that ascent possible.

Hitler’s rise and fall: Timeline

20 April 1889 (Birth)

Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th in Braunau am Inn in the empire of Austria-Hungary.

His parents’ families were from poor peasant backgrounds. His father, Alois, regarded as strict and distant, became  a customs official and expected Adolf to follow a career into the civil service.  Hitler’s mother, Klara, was known to be of a more compassionate nature, adoring and indulging her son.

At the age of six Adolf attended school and while clearly intelligent, he was uninterested in formal education, eventually leaving with a poor educational record of achievement.

The death of his father when Adolf was 13, which released the pressure on him to get a job working for the civil service, Adolf was sable to pursue his preferred choice of study, that of art.  He attended art school and regarded himself as an artist, absorbing diverse cultural influences, the opera, theater, reading and drawing.

1907 (Adulthood)

Hitler moved to Vienna at age 18 with the aim of attending the Vienna Academy of Art, but his application was rejected. His disappointment was compounded by his failure to also get into the Vienna School of Architecture due to his inability to provide a school leaving certificate.

For next 6 years (until 1913), without any means of money, Hitler struggled to survive in Vienna, living in a men’s hostel.  He used to sell postcards which he’s drawn, of famous sights, and used to undertake a series of menial jobs, to earn money and survive.

During this period of poverty, Hitler engaged in much political activity, attending meetings, absorbing political newspapers and literature.

By this time, he was 24 years old.

1913 (Age 24)

He joined military service for the Habsburg Empire. the monarch of German at that time.  It is said that he joined the army to move to Munich in Southern Germany.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Hitler volunteered for service in the German army and joined the 16th Barvarian Reserve Infantry Regiment.  He distinguished himself in service, being promoted to corporal and decorated with the Iron Cross for services as a runner on the western front.

World War I went on for 4 years, until 1918.  In 1918, Hitler got badly injured causing temporary blindness due to a British gas attack in Ypres Salient.  He returned to his regiment in Munich, later in the year.  By this time, he was 29 years old.

1919 (Age 30)

Hitler was appointed to the Intelligence/Propaganda section where he would undertake political training. His activities involved making speeches to the troops advocating German nationalism and anti-Socialism, where he developed further his oratory skills.

He also acted as an army informer, spying on small political parties. He joined the German Workers’ Party, an extreme anti-communist, anti-Semitic right wing organisation during that time.

1920 (Entry to Politics)

Hitler was discharged from the army.  He joined German Worker’s Party where he undertook responsibility for publicity and propaganda. He changed the party’s name to the National Socialist German Workers Party, (or Nazi for short).  The party represented a combination of intense hatred for the politicians who they considered had dishonoured Germany by signing the Versailles Treaty and exploiting local grievances against a weak federal government.

1921

Hitler challenged Anton Drexler to become leader of the Nazi party. After initial resistance, Drexler agreed and Hitler becomes the new leader of the party.  He was 32 years old by this time.

1923 (Age 34)

Along with other right wing factions and General Ludendorff, he attempted to overthrow the Bavarian government with an armed uprising.  The event became known as The Beer Hall Putsch. H itler and 2000 Nazi’s march through Munich to the Beer Hall, to take over a meeting chaired by three of the most important individuals in Bavarian politics.

The following day, the Nazis marched in the streets, the police opened fire.  Hitler escaped but was captured.  He was tried for treason and served 9 months in Landsberg prison.  It was during his imprisonment that he began dictating his thoughts to Rudolf Hess, which emerged in the book Mein Kampf (my struggle).  It was a mixture of autobiography, political ideology, and an examination of the techniques of propaganda.

After out from the prison and short break from politics, Hitler re-founded the Nazi Party in 1925.

1925-1930 (Age 35-40)

Next 5 years of Hitler’s life revolved around strengthening his party, his personal life, and other usual life affairs.  By this time, Hitler was already 41 and his party was gaining momentum and so his political career.

In General election in September 1930, His party, Nazi Party, increased its representatives in parliament from 14 to 107.  Hitler was now the leader of the second largest party in Germany.

1931

Hitler challenged Paul von Hindenburg for the presidency, but failed as he could not stand for election since he was not a German citizen.

1932

At age 43, Hitler became a German citizen—enabling him to stand in the Presidential election against Hindenburg.

1933 (Age 44)

Hitler became chancellor of a coalition government, where the Nazis had a third of the seats in the parliament.  One year from then, in February 1933, the parliament was destroyed by fire.  The plot and execution was almost certainly due to the Nazis but they pointed the finger at the communists and triggered a General Election.

After one month, in March 1933, “Enabling Act” passed with which powers of legislation passed to Hitler’s cabinet for four years, making him virtual dictator.

During this time, he banned Communist party, socialist, trade unions, and banned protests and strikes.   By June 1934, he eliminated almost all his rivals.  He was 45 years old by this time.

In July 1934, German president Hindenburg died and Hitler became “Fuehrer and Reich Chancellor” and abolished the title of President.

1935-1938 (Age 46-49)

With full control over Germany, next 3 years he spent in strengthening military power with the aim of undoing the Treaty of Versailles and uniting all the German peoples.  In March 1938, the Austrian Chancellor, leader of the Austrian Nazi Party, invited the German army to occupy Austria and proclaimed a union with Germany.  In September 1938, British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain met Hitler in Germany.  Britain, France and Italy signed the Munich Agreement which gave the Sudetenland (the German populated borderlands of Czechoslavakia), to Germany.

In November 1938, what is historically referred to as Crystal Night, 7500 Jewish shops were destroyed and 400 synagogues were burnt. The attack was portrayed as a spontaneous reaction to the death of a German diplomat by a Jewish refugee in Paris.  It was actually orchestrated by the Nazi party who also killed many Jews and sent 20,000 to concentration camps.

Hitler and World War II

1939 (Age 50)

Hitler invaded Poland on September 1st and after 3 weeks of lightning war or ‘Blitzkrieg,’ the country was divided between Russia and Germany.  On September 3rd, France, Britain, Australia, and New Zealand declared war on Germany.

Ishan Raj Onta, less known as a singer in mainstream Nepali music listeners but is quite known among Netizens for his number “Birsiney Hau Ki” performed in Tuborg Open Sessions.

The singer is back again on his own style and genre with “Jindagi Ko Gaadi.”

It’s a song of a confused, anxious, with self doubt individual but still somehow determined to move on. In a personal note, the song kinda gave a hybrid feel of Travis and Radiohead. Well that’s what we felt.

Give a listen and pass your review.

Don’t go much with the video (as it seems like budget video)

Introspection of Human Mind- Vol. I

This video gently exposes the other side of life and humanity that is mostly unknown to the Internet-generations and by the end of the video, it leaves the viewers with more questions to ponder upon than they actually began with.

Dive deep into the minds of human from different corners of the world.

 

This is the first-part video of the three part-series documentary released in 2015 by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a French environmentalist. The Vol-I mainly focuses on the topics such as love, women, work and poverty.

The cinematic aerial footage and the first-person story telling method can make this documentary deeply personal and emotional to many audiences.

It gently exposes the other side of life and humanity that is mostly unknown to the Internet-generations and by the end of the video, it leaves the viewers with more questions to ponder upon than they actually began with.

The documentary is more like a storytelling or perspective collection from different individuals around the world on different topics like love, woman, poverty, work, etc.



The following are some of the best stories and perspectives you can find in the video.   For more stories, please watch the complete video above.

I remember… My stepfather would beat me with extension cords and hangers, pieces of wood and all kinds of stuff. He would tell me:”It hurt me more than you.”I only did it, because I love you.” It communicated the wrong message to me about what love was. So, for many years, I thought that love was supposed to hurt. I hurt everyone that I loved. And I measured love by how much pain someone would take from me. And it wasn’t until I came to prison, an environment that is devoid of love, that I began to have some understanding about what it actually was and was not. I met someone. She gave me my first real insight into what love was. She saw past my condition and the fact that I was in prison with a life sentence for doing the worst kind of murder that a man can do: murdering a woman and a child. It was Agnes, the mother and grandmother of…Patricia and Chris, that I murdered, who gave me my best lesson about love. By all rights, she should hate me. But she didn’t. Over the course of time, through the journey that we took, it has been pretty amazing, she gave me love. She taught me what it was.

 

As I was irradiated by the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, my fiancée’s parents were opposed to the marriage. And as we couldn’t stay together, we made a decision:”In this world, our love is forbidden, so let’s be in love in the hereafter.” We took the sleeping pills to die together. I don’t know if it was good luck or bad, but I regained consciousness. Afterwards, we cried on the hillside, two of us. As we couldn’t be together in this world, we wanted to die together and we weren’t able to. What a terrible destiny! We cried with all our hearts. That’s what happened. My health was more or less good. But I still survived. Her parents finally gave their permission. After seven and a half years, we could get married at last. After going through such a thing, when I’m confronted with a difficulty in life, I think of all that and I can get over anything. We’ve been a wonderful couple. Sunao – Japan

 

When you marry someone, you marry them as they are. At a given moment, you love them the way they are. I had an accident. I lost my arms and legs. She didn’t marry a guy with no arms or legs. But she stood it for a number of years. We ended up separating, we got a divorce. I had to start a new life. It took me 3 years to get over the break-up. After 3 years, I said to myself: “You can’t stay on your own!” So, I signed up on the internet to a dating site. At first, I just put a head shot. The rest was a surprise. I didn’t show I had no arms or legs. I had fun on the net, but when I told people about my handicap, nobody answered me. So, I announced my handicap and one day, I met Suzanna. There we are, love is possible. We’ve been together for 8 years. Suzanna has 3 girls, I have 2 boys. We have a one-eyed dog, 4 cats, a guinea-pig. It’s one big reconstituted family. Anything’s possible. I found love again. And we really love each other. So, that’s cool.     Philippe -France

 

“When I decided to divorce, I wouldn’t back down. My husband came to my parents’ house. He went in, the door was open, and he stabbed me. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced. I saw my life flash past. What a nightmare. I couldn’t believe it. I thought he was just threatening me. I never thought he’d go through with it. A man who loved me and whom I loved, with whom I lived for 10 years, with whom I had children… I couldn’t believe it. I yelled:” Chadi!” Chadi is his first name. He knifed me several times. I thought I was going to die as a martyr. I collapsed. Alerted by the noise, my brother came upstairs. The second shock I has – because I could still hear sounds around me – was when my daughter came into the room where I was lying. She started screaming: “Mama’s dead!”. I think that was the hardest thing. Knowing that my daughter… In the hospital, I said to the doctor:”My daughter, my daughter…” The doctor shouted: “Think about yourself ! Forget your daughter, forget everyone!” My daughter and my mother… I was so scared for them, after this shock. And it was start of my life, not the end. I got up and I decided that my life should completely change. It had to change. Thanks to God, I’m still standing. Thanks to God.”  Abeer – Lebanon

 

At home, on weekends, I do the cooking. One day, a friend came to my house. He said: “You do the cooking?” I said: “Yes.” “Is your wife sick?” I said: “No, she’s resting.” “What? You do the cooking while your wife has a rest?” “Yes, she needs rest.” He said: “My wife will never come visit you. You’d put ideas in her head. When she comes home, she’ll ask me to cook too.” I said to him: “You must understand that they need to rest.” Anyway, I enjoy cooking for my family.   Arsene – Burkina Faso

  

I’m in prison, because I had an abortion. I couldn’t have continued my studies because I was in a boarding school and I didn’t want to stop my studies. I’d have stopped for too long, with the pregnancy, the birth, breastfeeding, and I couldn’t consider that. So, I decided to have an abortion. What pleases me today is that I’m getting out of prison tomorrow. I’ll start a normal life again. I’ll do what I couldn’t do during my imprisonment. I’ll continue my studies and work. And maybe one day, I’ll have a child. I’ll be just like everyone else.   Cynthia – Rwanda

 

My daily work is to look at empty bottles. I pick them up and look carefully, to make sure they’re clean inside. That’s what I do every day. I start at 7.30 am and I finish at 7.30 pm. Or I may start at 7.30 pm and stop at 7 am. I get home at about 8 am. The most important thing I do is look at bottles every day. If I work from 7 am to 7 pm, that means I look at bottles for 12 hours.      Yuijan – China

 

The way we live and our values are the expression of the society we live in. And we cling to that. It doesn’t matter if I’m the president (of Uruguay). I have thought about all this a lot. I spent over 10 years in a solitary confinement cell. I had the time… I spent 7 years without opening a book. It left me time to think. This is what I discovered. Either you’re happy with very little, without overburdening yourself, because you have happiness inside, or you’ll get nowhere. I am not advocating poverty. I’m advocating sobriety. But we invented a consumer society… which is continually seeking growth. When there’s no growth, it’s tragic. We invented a mountain of superfluous needs. You have to keep buying, throwing away… It’s our lives we are squandering. When I buy something, or when you buy it, we’re not paying with money. We’re paying with the time from our lives we had to spend to earn that money. The difference is that you can’t buy life. Life just goes by. And it’s terrible to waste your life losing your freedom.     Jose – Uruguay
