This simple worksheet includes two small excerpts from speeches Adolf Hitler gave early on in his role as Chancellor. In both he describes in bold terms his beliefs on authoritarianism, militarism, and his opinion of the Treaty of Versailles.
After reading each short piece, students interpret his message and compose a list of promises he made the German people. I use this as a brief warm up that will generate a discussion on how different people would respond to his words and the affect they might have on people in Germany at the time. It can also be completed for homework or anywhere in a unit on totalitarianism.
An answer key is provided for your convenience.
