In order to carry out this activity you will need to go back through this section.

How did the Nazis affect everyday life?

There were a variety of ways in which the Nazi seizure and consolidation of power affected the lives of German citizens.

Many of those who the Nazis considered real or potential opponents were dealt with severely as soon as Hitler came to power. For other groups and individuals there were less immediate and less severe effects. Alternatively, for some citizens there may have been positive opportunities to be taken out of the Nazi coming to power.

Now that you have read through all of the pages of this section, it would be useful for you to reflect on the extent to which the Nazis affected the lives of the German population.

Activity

Stage 1: Analysis

It may be useful to organise your information into a table (see above). We have added some suggested categories, but you may add some of your own. Add more rows as required.

Stage 2: Evaluation

Use the information from your table to assess the impact of the Nazi consolidation of power. You should assess the extent to which each area of life was affected by the Nazis.

Step 3: Communication

You should now write your findings into an essay or report with an introduction, a paragraph for each category and a conclusion summing up the effects of the Nazi's policies.

Once you have completed your report spellcheck it before printing it and handing to your teacher.
