Reasons for the Failure of the Weimar Republic - Reasons for the Failure of the Weimar Republic The period of German history from 1919 to 1933 is known as the WeimarRepublic. It is named after the city of Weimar, where a national assembly convened to produce a new constitution after Germany's defeat in World War I. This first attempt at establishing a liberal democracy in Germany was a time of great tension and inner conflict and, ultimately, failed with the ascent of Adolph Hitler and the Nazi Party in 1933. Although technically, the 1919 constitution was never entirely invalidated until after World War II, the legal measures taken by the Nazi government in 1933 that are commonly known as Gleichschaltung (a political sense to describe the process by which the Nazi regime successively established a system of total control and coordination of all aspects of society)in fact destroyed all mechanisms provided for by a typical democratic system, so it is common to mark 1933 as the end of the Weimar Republic....   [tags: Papers] 817 words
