The Reasons Hitler was Made Chancellor of Germany In Germany in 1933, Hitler's Nazis party was growing extremely popular with the Germans. This posed a problem for the current government, The Weimar republic who were losing popularity. Hitler promised things that the German people needed: Hitler offered a strong leadership, like that of the Kaiser, older Germans who were alive during the reign of the Kaiser, warmed to this type of ruling. Hitler promised the cancellation of the treaty of Versailles, which was still a subject which angered many people; many still held the signing of the treaty against the Weimar. Hitler's use of the SA forced people into voting for him.
How did the party change following the Depression? The 1930s were turbulent times in Germany's history. World War I had left the country in shambles and, as if that weren't enough, the people of Germany had been humiliated and stripped of their pride and dignity by the Allies. Germany's dream of becoming one of the strongest nations in the world no longer seemed to be a possibility and this caused resentment among the German people. It was clear that Germany needed some type of motivation to get itself back on its feet and this came in the form of a charismatic man, Adolf Hitler.
The Great Depression, in addition to losing World War I, created a German populace that was humiliated. This allowed Hitler, with his soaring nationalist rhetoric, to take win a large share of the electorate in the early 1930’s. This is because Hitler appealed to their humiliation and promised to restore Germany to his past glory. Thus, the Great Depression was absolutely essential in making Germany into an aggressor. However, it was unimpacted by the Treaty of Versailles.
The German people and lost all hope in the Weimar republic, and started looking for a radical change, brought forth party radical parties...the communists and the nazis. As a result of 1929, Hitler became remarkably popular. He made promises to the military and to industrialists saying that he would return Germany back to greatness once again. Hitler exploited the trust of the German public to its fullest during these times of hardship so he could gain the support he needed to gain full control of the German state. The weakness of the Constitution of the Weimar Republic significantly helped Hitler establish and develop the Nazi party.
Hitler’s rise to power was almost instantaneous; the possibility of it being inevitable is absurd. If the Nazi’s political parties and opponents made better decisions, by using their authority and influence over Germany more effectively and efficiently, Hitler would not have had power in 1933. Furthermore, certain events emerged from the 1920’s through to 1933 that damaged Germany so much so that Hitler was able to take advantage and command situations. Political instability was one of the foremost factors in government collapse at the hands of Hitler; if the Weimar Republic was stron... ... middle of paper ... ... their excessive propaganda campaigning and the strengths of Hitler as a leader and influence. In the years leading up to 1933, Hitler and the Nazi’s had complete control of the situation.
Can the rise of Hitler be explained on purely economic grounds? The end of WWII proved to the world that Adolf Hitler's power in Germany was extraordinary and defeat less. Historians have plucked apart Hitler's life trying to find an explanation for his rise to power that took place in the 19th and 20th centuries of Germany. It has been thought that the course of Germany's history would have been drastically different if in fact Germany had won WWI. Is it right to make such a bold statement regarding an era that produced the worst genocide the world has ever seen?

Von Papen was Chancellor and when he lost the support of Von Schleicher it became easy for Hitler to take over. Von Papen secretly agreed to work with Hitler and when Hindenburg wanted Von Papen back as Chancellor, he suggested Hitler with himself as vice-Chancellor. Hitler was appointed giving the Nazis control. The weaknesses of the Republic and the strength of the Nazis led to Hitler to becoming Chancellor in 1933.
When the terms of the Versailles Treaty became public in May 1919 and who had supported democracy turned against it. Others, mostly the middle classes, had never wanted democracy and deeply disliked the overthrow of the monarchy. They convinced themselves that the German army had never been defeated on the battlefield. Democracy and the Weimar Republic were never universally accepted and were not quite legitimate. Weimar’s failure was, however, not inevitable, for the republic survived a period of severe political and economic crisis in its early years.
")Although he failed, Hitler was then recognised as a national hero, whom gained public support from Germany. This would lead to the rise of Hitler. Germany’s aggressive foreign policy, from 1933 to 1945, was imposed to accomplish Hitler’s desires of dominating Europe. The policy made seemingly reasonable demands but threatened war if denied. This lead to the appeasement of Britain and France, whom were both suffering from the devastation caused by The Great Depression.
Because of people’s discontent with the overwhelming situation, the Nazi party jumped at the opportunity to gain power and carry out so called ‘Nazi revolution’. In order to explain the reasons why Hitler took over the German state, one has to start of with answering the question why the Nazi party come to power in the first place. First of all, it is extremely important to explain the political situation in Reich, which had a direct influence on the following events. Despite of the relatively prosperous period between 1924 and 1928, which weakened the right-wing radical potential, the parliamentary democracy had not struck firmer roots, which meant that there was a possibility of revival of nationalist-conservative movement. This was also reflected by winning the election by Hindenburg, who felt no ties with liberal parliamentarism at all.
