My Process Paper
The German Autobahn and Its Affects On The World
Website contains 2,138 words
My project is a website about how I believe the German Autobahn changed the world in the 1930’s. I believe this because Germany just wanted a roadway that can get you where you need to be in little time at fast speed but still safe. I found this very intriguing and I found that my interest in cars and speed would make this subject even more interesting for me.
I used Google to find most of my research, which was probably not a very good idea. Although I found about 5 great informational websites of my topic, I needed more. While we went to the Wilson Library at the University of Minnesota, I found a U.S. government document of the Autobahn and how it works and what they would like to do. I read over it and found some interesting remarks. I also found an Atlas of the Autobahn, and a book that is all about driving around Germany. But I didn’t have time to read over all of it.
I chose a website as my format for this project because Weebly is fun to use and I found some really good webpage designs that worked well with my topic.
The German Autobahn relates to the National History Day theme because it affected people by creating jobs during Germany’s economic depression. The system affected ideas by making other countries, including the U.S., to think about using that type of system in their countries and got car manufacturers to look into making cars go as fast as it can for a speedy freeway with no speed limit. The Autobahn also affected events because after Hitler took control and helped the Autobahn become a huge revolutionizing system, Hitler felt complete success and power so Hitler invaded Poland, which then started World War II.
