What I’m Reading: How Did Hitler Happen? – 10 in a series – “…many Germans went along with the full range of Hitler’s policies…”

August 2nd, 2019

”His regime also suppressed the Communist Party and purged his own paramilitary storm troopers, whose violent street demonstrations alienated the German middle class. This bloodletting—called the “Night of the Long Knives”—was hugely popular and welcomed by the middle class as a blow struck for law and order. In fact, many Germans went along with the full range of Hitler’s policies, convinced that they would ultimately be advantageous for the country.”
