How did the Nazi regime utilize the famous Treaty of Versailles to corral support, and how did this consequently be used to paint various demographic groups and Western nations as the perpetrators for Germany's fall?
The Treaty of Versailles required Germany to adhere to an entire host of rules, three of which include: the confiscation of land, reduction of military power, and reparation payments. Part of the Nazi's propaganda machine included convincing the German people that the economic hardships they were facing post-WWI and the Versailles agreement was the fault of Jewish. Germany had fallen into an economic depression, and the Nazis incorporated this fact into their propaganda by stating that Jewish bankers were the fault of this recession and the Versailles agreement. The blaming of the Jewish population was coupled with a campaign to purge German society of all Western culture, particularly within Berlin because it was seen as a hotbed of Western influence. Jazz became outlawed on all German radio, which was an outgrowth of Southern US African American culture. In point of fact, Hitler suppressed most forms of art that he deemed too modern, and only allowed classical artifacts that were reflective of the past.

The Transatlantic Agricultural Trade led to the eventual importation of African slaves to plantations in the Americas. Why did the American colonists start importing West African slaves?
The colonists began importing slave labor from West Africa as a way to avoid utilizing indentured servants from Europe, for the latter would require eventually granting them freedom and land. Bacon's Rebellion contributed to this preference for slave labor because the colonists believed slave labor would avoid another riot from freed indentured servants.
Subject: European History
The French Revolution of late eighteenth-century contained a multitude of tenets, many of which were replicated in later European revolutions. How did Nazi Germany recreate some of the tactics of the French Revolution?
Nazi Germany manifestly utilized Maximillian Robespierre's scare tactic in convincing the public that all people who do not conform to the State's orders are enemies of the State, including those aiding and abetting the perpetrator. Robespierre passed a nation wide law that all enemies of the state, and those who support them, must be reported to the police-- not unlike Nazi Germany. Furthermore, the French Revolution maintained an idea that the classical period and classical artifacts were one to admire. Nazi Germany imitated this admiration for classical art as a means to denounce the modern times.
