Could Wwii Have Been Prevented? Essay

1506 words - 6 pages

During the early 1940's many European, countries and the United States, were recovering from World War I and the depression. Due to the fact that no one initially could or wanted to control Hitler's dictatorial power his extreme racism got out of control and he was able to slaughter millions of Jews. Though eventually Hitler brought destruction upon himself, if other countries would have stopped him in the early stages, World War II may have never happened. Though countries might have wanted to stop Hitler in Germany; they had their own county and people to worry about. The economic troubles prevented England and other European nations from taking part in international issues, and Hitler took full advantage of their weak conditions. This lack of interest form European powers proved deadly in the long term. Hitler got stronger as time went on and his racism against Jews was pushed further with the start of Concentration Camps. Some might claim that even if the major European Powers did interfere Hitler could not have been stopped, this was because of the strong support he had of his people. All the countries in Europe were stronger than Germany as a whole so they could have stopped Hitler and his racist approach.Because of WWI other countries in Europe were mainly focused on the recovery of their own countries, and therefore; paid little attention to Hitler's rise in power.Hitler went straight to the big powers of Europe to get the go-ahead to take over different parts of neighboring countries which had contained large native German populations. On September 15th, 1938, Hitler demanded the cession to Germany of the Sudetenland, the mountainous northwestern border area for Czechoslovakia that was home to 3.5 million ethnic Germans, He expressed his strong willingness to risk "world war" to achieve his objective, the British, French, Germans, and Italians- hastily arranged conference at Munich, and they reached an agreement that essentially met most if not all of Hitler's demands. Rather than recognizing or examining why Hitler wanted these lands they actually went along with Hitler. Therefore, they contributed to the escalation of a World War and the eventual mass genocide of the Jewish race. Hitler had all his war plans "And so we National Socialists ... take up where we broke off six hundred years ago. We stop the endless German movement to the south and west, and turn our gaze toward the land in the east... If we speak of soil in Europe today, we can primarily have in mind only Russia and her vassal border states" Hitler's conclusion was apparent: Germany must prepare for its inevitable war with the Soviet Union. During this time a big problem was the ignorance of Hitler. Hitler's ideas were by no means secret. He had spelled them out in the Mein Kampf, a book readily available to anyone who wished to read it. The ignorance was very costly because it led to World War II. Once the war had started many countries were still reluctant to allow Jews...
