The Terror State

Propaganda

Secret police called the Gestapo would spy on and arrest enemies of the state.

Keeping Control of Germany

The Nazis controlled and censored the radio & newspapers.

SS were responsible for running the concentration camps.

Creating Jobs


I gave strict orders and demanded that the police should devote all their energies to the ruthless extermination of subversive elements.

What does the source suggest about the purpose of the Gestapo?


The Terror State

  • Both the Gestapo and the SS were run by Heinrich Himmler.

  • The Gestapo, set up in 1933, employed an army of spies who would inform on people.

  • As of 1936 the Gestapo was supervised by Himmler’s deputy ReinhardHeydrich


Use the information you have been given to complete your mind map!

Can you explain how the Gestapo helped the Nazis to control the German people?


The legal system

  • All judges had to be members of the Nazi Party.

  • They also had to join the ‘National Socialist League for the Maintenance of Law’.

  • In October 1933 the ‘German Lawyers Front’ was established and had over 10,000 members by 1934.

  • In 1934 the ‘People’s court’ was established to try cases of treason.

How did the Terror State Work?


How did the Terror State Work?

  • Everyone knew someone who knew someone else who had been in a concentration camp.

  • Favourite joke amongst Germans at this time: A man goes to the Dentist. The Dentist says: ‘Open Wide.’ The man sits up and says: ‘Not in front of a stranger.’

  • Favourite Saying amongst Germans: ‘Speak through a Flower.’

  • 800,000 Germans were imprisoned from 1933 – 1945 as ‘Enemies of the State.’

  • 500,000 were executed by being shot in the neck.


  • How important was the Gestapo in Nazi Germany? (6 marks)

The Gestapo was a very important tool in controlling the German people as they scared the German people into following Nazi rule. If the Gestapo became aware that a citizen was a threat to Nazi rule, even in small way that person would be arrested, tortured for information and potentially sent to a concentration camp. Through the fear that they inspired they created a large network of informers which meant that the majority of threats were reported by the German people themselves.
