Hitler Coming Into Power Hitler and his Nazi party gained power in 1933 by exploiting many of the weaknesses in Germany, utilising their methods and organisation effectively. Conditions in Germany in 1919-24 played a large part in the emergence of the Nazi's. After WW1, the Versailles Treaty was made, which was a huge blow for Germany as they were crippled with reparations and the 'stab in the back theory'. German soldiers felt the 'November Criminals' who signed the Treaty had betrayed them. Hitler exploited such problems by acting as a saviour.

Extended Essay What was Erwin Rommel’s role during World War II, both for the Nazi cause and against its leader, Adolf Hitler? Introduction: World War Two was fought by almost all of the major powers. After the end of World War I, and the world wide depression, the Second World War creeped on the horizon. After the Treaty of Versailles which demilitarized Germany, the German people elected a leader for Germany that would hopefully rid them of their economic, political, and social problems caused by the Treaty of Versailles. (Georg Franz-Willing) This leader would be the future dictator of Germany and the leader of the Nazi party, Adolf Hitler.
This essay will further discuss the elements that facilitated with Hitler’s success in Germany, and the way that his charisma helped him obtain certain aspects of his success. One of the characteristics of being a prominent leader was to have charisma and Hitler was very charismatic. In order for one to be charismatic, a deep understanding of people is needed. Hitler shared a common understanding with the people of Germany through their shared hatred of the treaty of Versailles .Hitler had promised the Germans that he would do all in his power to help them. From the military all the way to the industrialists, he guaranteed an answer for everybody.
")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.
This brought forward feelings of fear, anger and insecurity towards the Weimar Republic. Hitler built on these feelings and offered the secure and promising alternative of the extremist nazi party. Although there were many factors that contributed to the rise of Hitler and the collapse of the Weimar republic, Hitler’s ability to build upon people’s frustrated view of the hatred of the treaty of Versailles and the circumstances it placed upon the German nation, was the fundamental reason for Hitler’s rise to power and the Weimar Republic to collapse The Treaty of Versailles, signed by the Weimar Republic at the conclusion of WW1, introduced economic insatiability and caused a profusion of hardship. The idea of resorting to an extremist group promising better alternatives became an attractive option to many Germans. The Treaty of Versailles’ vindictive terms and unreasonable reparations (6,600,000,000 pounds) resulted in undesired economic circumstances.
This investigation will discuss how the treaty of Versailles, Nazi storm troopers, and other aspects of the 1929 Depression contributed to Hitler’s rise to power. B. Summary of Evidence Treaty of Versailles • “Germany had to accept responsibility for starting the war, and had to agree to pay for the cost of the damage (set at £6.6 billion in 1921).” (BBC: GCSE Bitesize “Treaty of Versailles” p.1) • Germany was not allowed to negotiate the terms for the treaty. (BBC: GCSE Bitesize “Treaty of Versailles” p.1) • Germany lost some of it land to Britain and France. (johndclare “The main points of the Treaty”) Depression of 1929 • The poverty in Germany gave Hitler his opportunity to power.
Thus, the story goes, that the Treaty of Versailles made Hitler’s rise to power, and his starting of WWII, inevitable. However, this mode of explanation is a deeply flawed oversimplification. The Treaty of Versailles did not make WWII inevitable because the independent forces of the Great Depression and Japanese expansion also played key roles, and because nationalism was most likely to arise in Germany even if there were less harsh terms to the treaty. The Great Depression was among the most important factors in creating the climate that allowed for Hitler’s rise to power, and his eventual beginning of World War II. The Great Depression, in addition to losing World War I, created a German populace that was humiliated.
German resentment over the Treaty of Versailles stayed with the people for years until Adolf Hitler played upon the people's anger. Hitler's machinations eventually lead into WWII. Another outcome of WWI was the creation of The League of Nations. The victors of WWI wanted to implement a system of collective security, designed to resolve future conflicts using peaceful methods. Unfortunately, the League proved ineffective, which prompted leaders such as Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler to take aggressive action against their enemies.
Another belief was that the German government precipitated a growth of the Austrian and Serbia crisis in order to launch what they believed to be a defensive strike against Russia and France. One of his other main accusations was that German aims for expansion existed over a long period of time, leading right up to the Second World War. He believed Germany longed for an eastern empire and predominance over Belgium and France. Fritz Fisher had substantial evidence to back up his beliefs. His main evidence was the 'blank cheque' - when Germany supported Austria after they sent an ultimatum to Serbia which drew Germany into the First World War.
