Galactic Empire, a space-age Third Reich

Born in May 1944, in Modesto, California, George Lucas lived a world away the horrors of Nazi Germany. However, its presence is more than evident in the work of Lucas and the creative idea, the Star Wars saga. Admitting that the Galactic Empire was founded in Germany's Third Reich, Lucas has a history of characters and images necessary the paint scheme of his evil. While some parallels are obvious, such as Lucas robotic white soldiers, called the "storm troopers" the same name Hitler gave his personal bodyguards during World War II, other comparisons require a little digging. These comparisons make a study fascinating.

Senator Palpatine and Adolf Hitler
The story of Senator Palpatine to materialize in Episodes I, II and III seems remarkable rise of Adolf Hitler to power. Both men rose from obscurity to power, the outside world that embraces democracy and the republic, while that behind the scenes who worked for its ruin. In Episode II Senator Palpatine faced the dissolution of the Senate, "I democracy … I love you the Republic "while reluctantly accepts the supreme power. Nobody knows who he is also the Sith Lord, orchestrating the fall of democracy. This echoes the history of Hitler, who also supported democracy abroad, with the promise to play by its rules, and form a shadow government and an army in the ranks of his Nazi party. The resemblance is most striking in the burning of the Jedi Temple and the Reichstag fire in 1933 which effectively dissolved the German Senate. These shows have been planned to bring Palpatine and Hitler into power. Subsequently installed as Emperor Palpatine, while Hitler declared himself "Fuhrer" or supreme leader.

The leadership style of Palpatine continues to be the model for Hitler, who left the public eye and surrounded himself only knew that his faithful. While Hitler formed SS-a black-coated protection squad which protected him day and night and publicly executed his orders, Palpatine as emperor created Darth Vader, wearing her boyfriend black whose obedience to the Emperor extended to destroying whole planets. Hitler is known as evil incarnate, and as such, Lucas could not have picked a better model in Palpatine after.

Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker Parallels:
In German, Vater means "father." Therefore, Vader is a most interesting and voluntary choice of a character who is the spiritual father of the hero of Star Wars. This parent-child relationship is in parallel in the relationship between the German poet and political rebel Albrecht Haushofer and his father, Karl. Karl frequent trips to Japan greatly influenced his life and thought. I was particularly fascinated by the samurai – the Japanese military aristocracy which Lucas drew on a lot of inspiration for the Jedi. In the 1920s Karl became involved with Hitler through his close student, Rudolf Hess (who later was considered as Hitler # 3 man after Goring). Karl became instrumental in the formation of the alliance between Germany and Japan. An interesting note is that named Maull existed geopolitics at the time. Maul was a contemporary Anakin Skywalker of the Sith.

Albrecht young, in a poem entitled Der Vater, alludes to an evil that appears once every thousand years. When you start to Star Wars Sith had not seen for so long. Poem continues by saying that Albrecht's father had the power to stop this scourge, but it has triggered, power and choice that Anakin Skywalker made before becoming Darth Vader. While Albrecht worked alongside his father first, trying to bring peace in Europe through a treaty with England and France, who later saw the futility of their actions and joined the conspiracy to assassinate Hitler and to restore balance and peace in Germany. Here George Lucas leaves of history, for while Luke succeeds in overcoming the evil that his father embraced, Albrecht was not as lucky. It was arrested and executed for treason The participation of Russian troops entered Berlin in order to SS. Karl was also imprisoned after the war. Perhaps the memory of his son asks for his death in 1946. Before his death, Darth Vader redeemed himself to shake off the influence of the emperor and restore the balance of the universe. This is the last time being between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda, the Jedi in becoming well, it was once. Karl last act in life also resembled the Jedi when he committed suicide by seppuku, the traditional Samurai method.

Nazi Echoes
The discerning eye recognizes accents Nazis openly apparent in the Galactic Empire. It is no coincidence. George Lucas reportedly told designer clothes and historian Military John Mollo he wanted the "baddies" to look fascist. The atmosphere of rigid control and dehumanization was the ideal Hitler, whose armies marched in procession lasts beyond description disciplined in robotics. The uniforms and caps worn by officers Imperial in Star Wars were modernized versions of 1915 Bavarian Chevaulgers. The scene in the throne room Episode IV is reminiscent of the film Nazi propaganda, the image of the painting that history repeats itself. Thus, observers of Star Wars to get a history lesson.
