Option 1: Hitler’s Personality and the
Most of us believe Hitler was an evil
person. But did you know there were aspects of his personality that contributed
to his ability to carry out the Holocaust?
Write a paper describing Hitler’s
personality (including the “personality” of his political campaigns and
propaganda). What aspects of his thoughts, feelings, and behaviors contributed
to his political ideology and ability to convince others to join him on his
misguided “mission?” You must include at least ONE theoretical perspective in
this discussion (for example, “from a behaviorist perspective, these emotional
qualities were reinforced by…”)
To gather information, you are to
visit the U.S. Holocaust Museum (http://www.ushmm.org/, free admission). This portion of the
project can be completed as a group, but each person must write his/her own
paper. You are also to read at least one additional piece of information
about him, whether it is a biography, article, etc. and include it in your
APA-style reference list.
