HSC - Year 12 - Modern History

Albert Speer was born in Mannheim, Germany in 1905 into a wealthy, upper/middle-class family. Speer left school with high achieving results, desiring to pursue a career in mathematics but was expected to follow in his father’s footsteps to take over the family business. In 1923, he studied at the institute of technology in Karlsruhe and then transferred to Munich to complete his studies, qualifying as an architect in 1927. In December 1930, Speer was convinced to attend a political meeting where Hitler would address students of the Institute of Berlin University at a Berlin Beer hall. In a night, the decision was made that would change the world. Speer was persuaded by Hitler’s emotion, passion and talk of restoring national honour through the repudiation of the Treaty of Versailles. In 1931, Speer joined the Nazi Party where his involvement with the party and its consequences would begin.
