An excellent Canadian 2-part miniseries that explores Adolf Hitler’s rise and his early consolidation of power during the years after the First World War and focuses on how the embittered, politically fragmented and economically buffeted state of German society following the war made that ascent possible.

Hitler’s rise and fall: Timeline

20 April 1889 (Birth)

Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th in Braunau am Inn in the empire of Austria-Hungary.

His parents’ families were from poor peasant backgrounds. His father, Alois, regarded as strict and distant, became  a customs official and expected Adolf to follow a career into the civil service.  Hitler’s mother, Klara, was known to be of a more compassionate nature, adoring and indulging her son.

At the age of six Adolf attended school and while clearly intelligent, he was uninterested in formal education, eventually leaving with a poor educational record of achievement.

The death of his father when Adolf was 13, which released the pressure on him to get a job working for the civil service, Adolf was sable to pursue his preferred choice of study, that of art.  He attended art school and regarded himself as an artist, absorbing diverse cultural influences, the opera, theater, reading and drawing.

1907 (Adulthood)

Hitler moved to Vienna at age 18 with the aim of attending the Vienna Academy of Art, but his application was rejected. His disappointment was compounded by his failure to also get into the Vienna School of Architecture due to his inability to provide a school leaving certificate.

For next 6 years (until 1913), without any means of money, Hitler struggled to survive in Vienna, living in a men’s hostel.  He used to sell postcards which he’s drawn, of famous sights, and used to undertake a series of menial jobs, to earn money and survive.

During this period of poverty, Hitler engaged in much political activity, attending meetings, absorbing political newspapers and literature.

By this time, he was 24 years old.

1913 (Age 24)

He joined military service for the Habsburg Empire. the monarch of German at that time.  It is said that he joined the army to move to Munich in Southern Germany.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Hitler volunteered for service in the German army and joined the 16th Barvarian Reserve Infantry Regiment.  He distinguished himself in service, being promoted to corporal and decorated with the Iron Cross for services as a runner on the western front.

World War I went on for 4 years, until 1918.  In 1918, Hitler got badly injured causing temporary blindness due to a British gas attack in Ypres Salient.  He returned to his regiment in Munich, later in the year.  By this time, he was 29 years old.

1919 (Age 30)

Hitler was appointed to the Intelligence/Propaganda section where he would undertake political training. His activities involved making speeches to the troops advocating German nationalism and anti-Socialism, where he developed further his oratory skills.

He also acted as an army informer, spying on small political parties. He joined the German Workers’ Party, an extreme anti-communist, anti-Semitic right wing organisation during that time.

1920 (Entry to Politics)

Hitler was discharged from the army.  He joined German Worker’s Party where he undertook responsibility for publicity and propaganda. He changed the party’s name to the National Socialist German Workers Party, (or Nazi for short).  The party represented a combination of intense hatred for the politicians who they considered had dishonoured Germany by signing the Versailles Treaty and exploiting local grievances against a weak federal government.

1921

Hitler challenged Anton Drexler to become leader of the Nazi party. After initial resistance, Drexler agreed and Hitler becomes the new leader of the party.  He was 32 years old by this time.

1923 (Age 34)

H itler and 2000 Nazi’s march through Munich to the Beer Hall, to take over a meeting chaired by three of the most important individuals in Bavarian politics.

The following day, the Nazis marched in the streets, the police opened fire.  Hitler escaped but was captured.  He was tried for treason and served 9 months in Landsberg prison.  It was during his imprisonment that he began dictating his thoughts to Rudolf Hess, which emerged in the book Mein Kampf (my struggle).  It was a mixture of autobiography, political ideology, and an examination of the techniques of propaganda.

After out from the prison and short break from politics, Hitler re-founded the Nazi Party in 1925.

1925-1930 (Age 35-40)

Next 5 years of Hitler’s life revolved around strengthening his party, his personal life, and other usual life affairs.  By this time, Hitler was already 41 and his party was gaining momentum and so his political career.

Hitler challenged Paul von Hindenburg for the presidency, but failed as he could not stand for election since he was not a German citizen.

1932

At age 43, Hitler became a German citizen—enabling him to stand in the Presidential election against Hindenburg.

1933 (Age 44)

Hitler became chancellor of a coalition government, where the Nazis had a third of the seats in the parliament.  One year from then, in February 1933, the parliament was destroyed by fire.  The plot and execution was almost certainly due to the Nazis but they pointed the finger at the communists and triggered a General Election.

After one month, in March 1933, “Enabling Act” passed with which powers of legislation passed to Hitler’s cabinet for four years, making him virtual dictator.

During this time, he banned Communist party, socialist, trade unions, and banned protests and strikes.   By June 1934, he eliminated almost all his rivals.  He was 45 years old by this time.

1935-1938 (Age 46-49)

With full control over Germany, next 3 years he spent in strengthening military power with the aim of undoing the Treaty of Versailles and uniting all the German peoples.  In March 1938, the Austrian Chancellor, leader of the Austrian Nazi Party, invited the German army to occupy Austria and proclaimed a union with Germany.  In September 1938, British Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain met Hitler in Germany.  Britain, France and Italy signed the Munich Agreement which gave the Sudetenland (the German populated borderlands of Czechoslavakia), to Germany.

In November 1938, what is historically referred to as Crystal Night, 7500 Jewish shops were destroyed and 400 synagogues were burnt. The attack was portrayed as a spontaneous reaction to the death of a German diplomat by a Jewish refugee in Paris.  It was actually orchestrated by the Nazi party who also killed many Jews and sent 20,000 to concentration camps.

Magadh by tShunya

A song not meant for everyone

Published

Some songs are not meant to be popular or viral nor is composed for everyone to hum or sing. They are like an abstract art, not meant to be obvious.

The song Magadh, tShunya, is one of the kind. It does not fit in any genre because its uniqueness itself is a genre. According to the video description, the song is on a historical fact about a king….

Leave it, not going to reveal here. Watch it, read the lyrics and find out yourself.

Dhaka Dhoti, a rap from madesh

This is how diversity feels like.

Published

on

After a long time, found a rap from Nepal that could give us goosebumps and awe feeling.

What a beat, what a strike. Wish video was much better; seems a budget video.

Song like “Lollypop Lagelu” had set a different kind of stereotype about songs from madhesh and their music. No more. After listening till the end, you too will go like “Never thought Bhojpuri Rap could be this lit.” Well, it is not really Bhojpuri, but mix of.

This is how diversity feels like. <3

Lyrics

Suna kan kholi toraboli himal pahad terai k

Bisswome dekh bhaii dusarrkaa
sorgalok nepal jekar nam dharm saskirti ritiriwaj sabke
aapan aapan algeba maan saan
parkirtike bardan aafan saundarta se mohit
kaileba sabke dheyan santike muhan

himal pahad milke tarai banaola sabke
ek panna palta ke dekh bir emandar yodhdha
nepaligorkhali ithas me paibe
ek aake dekha santi ke bhagwan gautam buddha lumbini
mahan sitaD mata ke janma sthal janakpur dham
bhail eho hamar swades k san
bhedbhab k nam pe nakar badnam
e desh ke nam tu aisan kar kam
jekase bane tor aapan Nam pahichan badhe
dehsake san dekhe wale kare wah wah sab log jan

Namskar bhaiiya ramram ke satha suruhola
subha ke kam hasi majag gussa k sat
bitela sabke sam aafan aafan plan
kurta or dhoti sirpe dhaka topi
gamchha ba hamnike san kisan
aannke ke bhandar khetipati peba nirbhar
hamni ke jahan tarai aadibasi tharu madhesi

Aaige madesh me alag san se
Lolypop nai tyo kina pewar hiphop lai china aage

Bhaike e badhiya gana suna chala
