The Nazi Party
By Sharon Fabian

1     When World War I ended, many people in Germany were shocked and disappointed that their country had been defeated. German soldiers who had fought for their country must have been especially disappointed. After the end of the war, a small group of these Germans formed a new party - the German Workers Party. The German Workers Party believed strongly in German nationalism. To them, the most important thing was to restore German pride and prosperity.
2     Adolf Hitler joined the German Workers Party in its early days when the total membership of the party numbered less than 100 people. He became one of its leaders and also the main speaker at the party's rallies.
3     In 1920, the German Workers Party changed its name to the National Socialist German Workers Party, which later became known by the shorter name - Nazis. The Nazis wanted to restore pride and prosperity to their country but only for people of "German blood." They looked down on people from other groups, especially the Jews.
4     Under Hitler's leadership, the Nazi Party began to grow. His speaking style attracted larger crowds to Nazi Party rallies. He appealed to young men who were out of work and still angry about Germany's defeat in World War I. By 1923, tens of thousands of people were showing up for Nazi rallies. Hitler began to build his power even more. He began his own private army, known as Hitler's storm troopers, within the Nazi Party.
5     Next, Hitler called for the Nazis to overthrow the current German government and planned his first takeover for the city of Munich. The attempt was a failure, and Hitler was jailed.
