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.

However the implementation of Schleicher, to attract trade unionists and members of the NSDAP, only succeeded in making Hitler’s position in the Nazi party stronger. This was because Schleicher’s ‘policy of diagonal’ only attracted Strasser, for which he was ousted from the Nazi party.
Hitler's use of the SA forced people into voting for him. Hitler knew he could not keep these promises, but he made the People of Germany believe him, he was able to touch people's emotions, his rally's created excitement and positivness in the German people. Hitler was their last chance to help restore Germany to her to respectability and powerfulness. Hindenburg seeing Hitler's popularity grow, had to think of something to protect the Weimar but at the same time keep control of Hitler. There are many reasons for Hitler being made Chancellor.

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.

The inflation in 1923, caused in part by the Versailles settlement, drove people away from democracy and towards Nazism. Socially, the Nazi movement had taken root with many conservatives as a way to unify and oppose the treaty. Books and literature written by Nazi leaders such as Hitler himself were propaganda to the movement and allowed for the party to solidify its goals. Politically, the republic was fractured and messy allowing for many parties to rise and fall out of favor.
If the Treaty of Versailles hadn't been signed, Germany wouldn't have gone into economic depression, Hitler wouldn't have gone ahead with the Munich Putsch, he wouldn't have had a trial and been famous, therefore he wouldn't have been able to show off his communication skills, Hindenburg wouldn't have appointed him and he wouldn't have been able to make the Enabling Act thus he wouldn't have been in power. If we try to remove one factor, the chain is broken and things would have been so different. I conclude bys saying that no factor has priority over another and without all of the factors linked together, there's a great chance that Hitler would have never been able to gain authority over Germany.
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.
He wanted to abolish the treaty and all of it terms. Consequently the Treaty of Versailles helped to cause the Economic depression, in Germany. Meaning that the treaty and the economic depression were both linked together strongly, because the treaty told Germany to pay reparation bills, around £6600 million to the countries they damaged during World War 1. Which meant that Germany did not have much money left for it. This caused the start of the economic downfall, among other issues.
Germany had problems paying these large reparations and called in America for help. They decided to loan Germany the money because they saw essential for a strong Europe and they wanted the foreign trade whilst their economy was booming. This all changed November 1929 when the Wall Street crash happened and the American economy was collapsing. They had to stop loaning money to Germany and even called up the money they had given to them. The German government thought by printing more money the problem would be solved.
