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.
The German civilians had interest in Hitler and were ready for a change in Germany.

The German people were bitterly resented the war guilt that was over them.
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.

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 went as far to believe that he had fought the wrong war, but why? His foreign policies were clear from the very beginning: destroy the Treaty of Versailles, unite all German-speaking nations, and racially cleanse the land he wanted to create for his new collection of German people. His statement must be made false due to the fact that even though he lost the war, Hitler had the footing and power to achieve most of his goals.
A Violation The Treaty of Versailles was a violation of Wilson’s ideals. The Treaty is one of the most important agreements (or disagreements) that shaped 20th century Europe socially and physically. Woodrow Wilson on January 22, 1917 in an address to the United States Senate called for a peace without victors, but the Treaty signed by the participating nations was everything but that. The blame for the war was placed on Germany and justified the reparations that were outlined by the treaty for the war. The terms of the treaty were very harsh to the Germans and they took on great resentment.
However, how could people silenced their own voice in how their country should be governed? With a disgraceful defeat in 1919, Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles thus ending World War I but also igniting hatred, vulnerability and a dictator. With the litany of restrictions and reminders of their downfall, Germans became outraged at their government. In addition to the loss, the Weimer Republic, the government system postwar, could not control an inflation wiping out the people’s life savings and respect. Germans started to distrust their government system; the citizens thus saw a resolution named Adolf Hitler.

This was primarily done so through the repealing of the Neutrality Acts and implementation of the Lend-Lease Act. The primary causes to this shedding of isolationism were attributable to Hitler’s conquest of Europe and the fear that he would “cross the pond” and attack the United States. The United States had been influenced that the future of the world was based upon their entanglement in World War II. Many believed that the supplies the U.S. would provide would make a huge difference in swaying the war and resulting in an Allied victory.
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.
The Nazis and their rise to power comprised many steps along the way. With the help of Adolf Hitler’s mind they came to power with their political and economic strategies. Outlining the beginning of how Hitler and his party slowly gained power and took over Germany as each of his idea and his supporters helped him to rise. Hitler consequently congregated supporters of the Nazi party to make it stronger. Before the idea of legally taking over the political and economic of Germany, he planned to take over the Reichstag building with force thinking The Putsch was his way to success.
These ideologies maintained that democracy was effeminate and that it wasted precious time in building consensus among citizens. Totalitarian leaders’ military style made representative government and the democratic values of the United States, France, and Great Britain appear feeble- a sign that these societies were on the decline. Totalitarianism put democracies on the defensive as they aimed to restore prosperity while still upholding individual rights and the rule of law”(Hunt & Martin, 852). Many European countries had to deal with totalitarian regimes with violence and fights. Adolf Hitler was possible because he used totalitarianism in making the people of Germany believe that he would improve things but, after he was elected, he let everyone down and did things the exact way, as he wanted them.
