Within three years of their first electoral success, the Nazis get hold of political power in Germany when Adolf Hitler became chancellor on January 30, 1933. That beautiful clear evening Hitler stood in the window of the Reich Chancellery waving proudly to thousands of stormtroopers who staged parades through the streets of Berlin. At the end of June 1940, Adolf Hitler toured Paris as the conqueror of the French nation the Wehrmacht had beaten in a matter of weeks. 

The Nazis declared that their Third Reich would be the best civilization in history and last for a thousand years. But the meteoric rise of Hitler and National Socialism was followed by an almost equally swift defeat. The Third Reich lasted a mere twelve years. In the year 1945, Hitler was enforced to retreat to his underground bunker, where, surrounded by the remains of his empire, he took his own life.

Moreover, within the entire scope of modern history, the Nazi era occupies a minuscule span of time. Yet during that brief period, the Nazis instituted one of the most oppressive dictatorships known, launched a world war, dominated most of the European continent, and perpetrated crimes against humankind of staggering enormity. Certainly, the Third Reich drastically distorted the political structure of Europe and the course of world history. Below are the concise images in the history of Nazi.
