He didn’t win, he came in second to Paul von Hindenburg. But soon after President Hindenburg had no other choice but to appoint Hitler as Chancellor, because of all the support Hitler had. Once in office, Hitler started to make Nazi’s a part of the government, and gained all control over emergency powers. Hitler had just enough power to do what he wanted. In the next few months concentration camps were opened.
After he was let out of jail, Hitler began to use his skillful way with words and his devotion to nationalism to gain representation in all the levels of government. In 1929, when the Great Depression hit America, Germany was affected as well. Many Germans looked up to Hitler during the national economic crisis. He promised jobs, security, and a repaired and reborn Germany. In 1932, the Nazis became the majority party leading into 1933 when Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany by the president Paul Von Hindenburg (Fredriksen).
After Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, he took his power within the government and transformed it into dictatorial power. The German parliament, known as the Reichstag, passed the Enabling Act. The Enabling Act gave Hitler the power to make and impose laws without any approval of the government. This act allowed him to do anything he pleased, legally. The Nazi Stormtroopers would beat up anyone who opposed to what Hitler had decl... ... middle of paper ... ...sed from Hitler’s laws and regulations.
Hitler's Becoming a Dictator There are many factors that allowed Hitler to seize power in 1934. One reason was the Munich Putsch, which put Hitler in jail and allowed him to write “Mein Kampf” and the 25-point programme, which helped him to win votes. Another reason was the Wall Street crash, which caused another depression in Germany, which made people vote for the Nazi party. Another reason Hitler was able to come into power was the Reichstag fire, which the Nazis blamed on a communist and this affected the 1933 Election in their favour. The fire also allowed Hitler to pass the “Enabling act”, which basically meant that no one could oppose him and Germany had to do what he said without question.
· August 1934 Hitler became Fuhrer and Reich Chancellor. I will go through each of these main steps and say how each of them effected Hitler and his establishment of the Nazi dictatorship. After the fire in the Reichstag on the 27th February 1933, which was believed to be started by a Communist, Hitler told President Hindenburg that Germany was in great danger from the Communists and convinced him to pass a law called, ‘The Protection of the People and State.’ This was made to look like a good law for the public when actually it was only good for Hitler. It gave him the power to suspend parts of the constitution. This enabled him to smash his opponents, the Communist’s, election campaign.
By 1933 the party had gained control over the entire German state and the ideas, propaganda, and doctrines of National Socialism were written in Hitler's Mein Kampf (My Struggle) . Hitler believed that, "The Nordic master race was created to rule over inferior races, especially the Jews" (McManus 5). This was just the beginning of Nazi thought that swept throughout Germany until the end of World War II. Party membership was "voluntary" and millions joined, some willingly and others against their will. National Socialism transformed Germany from a weak republic to a powerful state.
Hitler (1889 – 1945) is the founder and leader of National Socialism (Nazism) and German dictator, b. Braunau in Upper Austria. Macbeth is the Thane of Cawdor who in the end becomes the King. There are some similarities and differences between the two characters: Macbeth and Adolf Hitler. Macbeth wanted to be the King, just like Hitler. After acquiring German citizenship, Hitler ran in the presidential election of 1932, losing to the popular war hero Paul von Hindenburg but strengthening his position by falsely promising to support Chancellor Franz von Papen, who lifted the ban on the storm troops (June, 1932).
