Hitler also realised that democracy was failing and locked into this by creating a preference of order over freedom policy, he made it clear that Germany needed a leader, a dictator. One of Hitler's other objectives was to overturn the Versailles Treaty. He made this no secret, and the German people were attracted to this aim. With this Hitler managed to say that Marxists and Jews were a threat, that they were the criminals who signed the Treaty. People were convinced and manipulated to believe this, and so gave one of Hitler's aims more support, which was getting rid of Jews, Marxists and Communists.
Hitler, intensely detesting the November criminals1, promised to build a back powerful nation, the German public, in a state of disillusionment, responded positively to this claim and began to support the Nazi Party. Hitler’s ability to take advantage of the Treaty of Versalles and the hardship that it brought to the German nation contributed to Hitler’s rise to power and the collapse of the Weimar Republic. The instability of the newly for... ... middle of paper ... ... with other factors, lured many Germans in to believing in the nazi ideals and supporting the Nazi party whilst stirring up a hatred of the current Weimar Republic. With a combination of poor leadership on the Weimar Government’s behalf, the signing of the hated Treaty of Versailles and an unattractive economic situation, Hitler, using his charismatic personality, was able to convince the majority of the public to resort to the extremist nazi party. There are many other factors that influenced the collapse of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazism; In every case, however, Hitler’s manipulative skills and sophisticated behavior towards circumstances lead to the success of the Nazi Party.
He became the chancellor and president of Germany. Hitler manipulated his words causing support for him. He promised an ultimate, united Germany which was what the citizens wanted especially after the Treaty of Versailles. Tying into this, the Jewish were used as a scapegoat for the Germans. The Jewish were blamed for the misfortunes of Germany.
Nazi propaganda played an important role in the Holocaust, the extermination of millions based on race, religion, and ethnicity. It successfully secured the acquiescence of the general public to the crimes committed by the Nazis. The Nazi Party used their control of the media to fuel anti-Semitic belief and to persuade Germans to support the Nazi cause throughout the Holocaust and World War II. Although the Nazis were the largest political party in Germay, they did not win a majority of votes in the elections until 1933 (Kolb). Propaganda within Nazi Germany was therefore taken to a new and frequently perverse level and was a crucial part of Hitler’s plans (Welch).
His nationalistic and passionate speaking skills gained him the respect of many Germans in very bad times. As Hitler rose to power the future destruction of Germany began. The Treaty of Versailles played a significant role in the country of Germany after World War I. The Big Three constructed the treaty with all of their own ideas and they came up with a deal that took Germany out of the national picture until World War II. The treaty effected Germany economically, militarily, socially, and politically.

With Hitler being able to control 600 storm troopers and being able to persuade Kahr and his Ministers to support him gave him the chance to overthrow the Reichstag, and prove his controlling, leadership is what Germany needed. Hitler set up the Enabling Act knowing that the Weimar government was over.
This part of the treaty was called the “War Guilt Clause”. This “forced the German nation to accept complete responsibility for initiating World War I” (livingston.org). Aside from taking responsibility for starting the war, Germany was also given the responsibility to repair the damages of the war. The humiliation that Germany suffered allowed for new power to rise in Germany. This new power was Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party.
In the words of John Green, “The truth resists simplicity”. Assigning the blame of WWII to the Treaty of Versailles is far too simple of an explanation. The Treaty of Versailles, which ended WWI while sanctioning and punishing Germany, forced Germany to pay reparations. These reparations are said to have caused economic challenges in Germany, which allowed Hitler to take control on nationalist fervor. Thus, the story goes, that the Treaty of Versailles made Hitler’s rise to power, and his starting of WWII, inevitable.
By looking at In the Garden of Beasts we can see that Hitler and the Nazi Regime successfully used propaganda and deception to gain power in Germany. This is important because propaganda is widely used to manipulate others into supporting one’s ideas while deceiving them from the truth. Before World War II Hitler successfully implemented tactics through propaganda to secure his position as the next German Chancellor. Without using propaganda to increase his popularity Hitler would not have been able to gain the support he needed to gain control of Germany. He manipulated the German people by stating that Germany needs to become united to preserve their freedoms and to keep peace throughout the country.
Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party with their aggressive policies and actions, in my opinion, are to blame for the war. However, many others are responsible for allowing Hitler and Germany to be in this position and infact, the Treaty of Versailles, aiming to prevent another war, had a huge effect on Hitler coming to power in Germany and achieving a position of power from which a war could take place. Adolf Hitler was born in Austria in 1889. In 1919 he joined and took over the party later to be known as the 'Nazi' party. By 1933, due to several reasons, Hitler was able to make his party the largest in Germany and also very cleverly change the German constitution so that he could become dictator of Germany.
