Follow the money. Hitler was a ne'er do well failed artist, angry at the world~ a sociopath. Hitler, who was Austrian was broke and failed and he blamed his sorry lot in life on Jews as a group. Apparently many agreed with him..enough to get a movement started as he was charismatic and larger than life. In Germany, in particular, people liked what they heard, so he was able to gain a foothold. Hitler flew his own plane and dropped antisemitic leaflets all over Germany. He'd pick an area to drop the leaflets and then he'd show up in person, landing the plane in a field, hop out of his plane and he was able to WOW the people. When his plane flew by, Germans would run out and wave to him, hoping he might land in their town. Hitler used Jews as a Scapegoat BECAUSE HE COULD. It's that simple. Terrifying, ain't it?...to realize it's that easy to so quickly label and dehumanize a group of people and have the rest of the world turn their backs, until, of course, Hitler came for them, too. It never ceases to blow my mind that Hitler was considered a good guy, even by Churchill and other world leaders and big money folks until, of course, he bit off the hands that fed him money and invaded countries whose leaders had initially thought Hitler was an OK dude.
