      1933

    • B.

      1935

    • C.

      1938

    Correct Answer
    B. 1935
    Explanation
    Germany began to openly rearm in 1935. This marked a significant turning point in German history as it violated the Treaty of Versailles, which had imposed strict limitations on the country's military capabilities after World War I. The decision to openly rearm was a clear indication of Germany's aggressive intentions and its willingness to challenge the international order. It also laid the groundwork for the subsequent military buildup that would eventually lead to the outbreak of World War II.

    Correct Answer
    A. Eastern Europeans and Jews, anyone not Aryan
    Explanation
    "Untermenschen" refers to a term used by the Nazis during World War II to dehumanize and categorize certain groups of people as inferior. This included Eastern Europeans and Jews, as well as anyone who was not considered Aryan according to Nazi ideology.

By labeling them as "untermenschen," the Nazis justified their persecution and discrimination against these individuals.

It was a key concept in Adolf Hitler's ideology and played a significant role in Nazi Germany's aggressive foreign policy leading up to World War II.

    For two years 1933-1935 Germany expanded its army in secret.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

Adolf Hitler, who came to power in 1933, began a rearmament program that aimed to strengthen and modernize the German military. This included increasing the size of the army, developing new weapons and technologies, and establishing a conscription system. The secret nature of this expansion was intended to avoid international scrutiny and potential intervention by other countries.

On the other hand, Britain did not take any significant action in response to Hitler's announcement.
