Hitler rose to power at a time of depression in the German economy and society. People were very willing to follows some like him who seemed to have everything together and a plan on how to get Germany back on track. Since no one else came forward to lead the German people, Hitler seemed to be the go to option because he was willing. Hitler gave the German people something and he gave them an identity to be apart of. Hitler talked about the providence and destiny of the German people and made them promises that enticed, excited, and brought them together under his reign.
But I do agree with our analysis of the book and how we determined that German people were blindly following a leader (Hitler, the Gas Man). And the German people followed Hitler because who else were they going to follow? I just wanted to give another point of view about the German people leaving their future in the hands of a man they were blindly following.
