Both were Totalitarian States
  • Both totalitarian regimes were one-party states
    with the goal of thorough societal
    transformation.
  • No civil liberties or freedom of the press were
    allowed
  • The government relied on constant propaganda to
    mobilize the population and the arrest and
    persecution of political enemies to prevent
    opposition.
  • Millions of civilians were imprisoned or murdered
    in both states.
  • Both of the governments economic goal, to expand
    industry, was to be achieved by state
    intervention.
  • In both states, the leader was treated as a
    godlike figure.

Ideological goals were profoundly different
  • Communism believed it was achieving equality and
    social justice that would be a model for
    international change
  • Nazism sought an unequal order with privileges
    for the racially pure elite at the expense of
    peoples like the Slavs and Jews, who were
    considered inferior.
  • Nazism called for German expansion into east and
    glorified violence
  • Communist ideology under Stalin focused on
    socialism in one country.

5
Differences continued
  • German ideology particularly targeted Jews, while
    the Soviet Union promised equal treatment of
    peoples of all ethnic backgrounds
  • Economically, although the German government
    intervened in the economy, it relied on
    capitalism and was allied with the middle and
    upper classes
  • In the Soviet Union, the Communists crushed those
    classes and expropriated their property there
    was virtually no private economy.
  • Stalin pursued rapid and extensive
    industrialization with Five-Year Plans and forced
    collectivization of agriculture.

6
Preparation of War
  • Through their economic policies during the 1930s,
    both states were preparing for war, with strong
    industries and government planning.
  • Both states had built effective propaganda
    machines and achieved notable successes that
    stirred the patriotism of their peoples.
