Economic depression, social unrest, a general discontent among the population – these are just a few of the reasons why Hitler happened. Charisma, personal drive, and bigger than life ideas for a better future for the country and the world at large – these are just a few of the reasons why it was Hitler. They said his eyes could draw you in, his persona was magnetic, and when he promised you something, you believed him. Instead of using his innate talents for good, Hitler chose to use them for evil, dominating not only his nation, but most of Europe. Why wasn’t he stopped sooner? Why didn’t anyone see him coming? How do we keep this from ever happening again? Here in Episode 20, which is Part II of "How Hitler Happened", we explore these questions and many more.
