The Gestapo was directly under the control of Heinrich Himmler the top dog watch of the SS (Storm Troopers) and one of the main figures in the holocaust.  The truth about the true force of the Gestapo is more far fetch than one would think.  Only 15 percent of their work load was of their own doing, the other 85 percent came from denouncers.  Unfortunately, denouncers were Germans reporting other Germans.  If someone didn’t like someone they would go to one of the Gestapo’s offices and say that such person was a communist or gay, well that got the Gestapo’s attention.

The Third Reich’s Rise & Fall

In 1933 President Hindenburg gave in to the pressure of his close friends and government members and appointed Adolf Hitler as chancellor of Germany.  Hindenburg was also influence by the fact that the country was at the verge of a revolution and he knew that Hitler could prevent this.  This was the beginning of Hitler’s road to absolute power.  But there was still a problem, as long as Hindenburg was president, Hitler’s power were still limited.  All that change with Hindenburg’s death in 1934.  Days before Hindenburg’s death, Hitler had pass a bill that in case something happened to Hindenburg, he would be able to join the president’s office with the chancellor’s office.  Once Hitler joined both offices no one could stand in his way and no one did.

The Third Reich’s Rise & Fall

After Hitler came out of prison in 1924 the Nazi party was in crumbles.  For the next four years the Nazi party and Hitler didn’t matter much.  Hitler got a second chance in 1928.  Politician and business man Alfred Hugenburg, owner of most of the newspapers and film industry in Germany, refuse to accept the new reparation plan proposed by the allies, the ‘Young Plan.’  Hugenburg enlisted the help of Hitler as a spokes person for a campaign against the ‘Young Plan.’  When Hugenburg and Hitler got together they didn’t just join forces, they combine the strenght of the NSDAP, the Nazi party, and the DNVP, the German National People’s Party.  Their union gave Hitler a leverage among his competition.

The Third Reich’s Rise & Fall

In this 2nd part of the Third Reich’s Rise & Fall we will cover how Hitler came to be, within the NSDAP.  In our first part we mention the fact that when Hitler came into contact with the NSDAP he did so as a spy.  When he returned from WWI he wanted to stay in the militay service so German army recruited him as a spy so he could join these political movements belived to be marxist in nature.  Once inside the party he turned the DAP into the NSDAP (Nazi) party.  In this part we will explain his rise to power within the party and the famous “Beer Hall Putsh,” which Hitler model after Mussolini’s “March on Rome.”

Enrollment Increase

In this report I cover the resent increase in students that has taken over the University of Texas in Arlington.  In 2009 the University of Texas in Arlington had an enrollment of almost 29,000 students.  This year (2011), the enrollment for the fall semester has reached almost 34,000 students and the number is expected to go up during the spring semester.  Some students have raise some concerns in how this increase has affected them.  The good thing is that UTA is aware and is working towards accommodating the students needs.  The increase is mostly notice in the parking lots, and the cafeteria among other places, where the students are mostly feeling the pressure.
