In a time of such chaos, the Nazis presented themselves as defenders of Germany. The Nazis took advantage of everything that was occurring, and wanted to and eventually succeeded in making themselves patriots. Hitler wanted a revolution, but the Beer Hall Putsch of November 8-9, 1923 had failed. Hitler, however, took this failure and turned it into success. Hitler had gained fame from his trial from February to April of 1924, his speech during the trial made him seem brave and patriotic, “He ranted against the treaty (Versailles) as ‘a law which advocated immorality in 414 articles.’ To violate its provisions was an act of patriotism.
Many leaders have had inspirations of ruling the world, but few of those leaders have had the strength or power to even attempt world domination. But Hitler was one of those few, his ability to lead a group into a fight for immoral purposes, and total control over Germany led to his dominance. Hitler’s promise to Germany to bring the country back to a major power status lured the country into his rule. Germany had visions of power and greatness, and Hitler was the leader who was going to accomplish that for them. So with power in mind, Germany followed Hitler’s lead, which led to the annihilation and almost extinction of the Jews in Europe.
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.
By looking at In the Garden of Beasts we can see that Hitler and the Nazi Regime successfully used propaganda and deception to gain power in Germany. This is important because propaganda is widely used to manipulate others into supporting one’s ideas while deceiving them from the truth. Before World War II Hitler successfully implemented tactics through propaganda to secure his position as the next German Chancellor. Without using propaganda to increase his popularity Hitler would not have been able to gain the support he needed to gain control of Germany. He manipulated the German people by stating that Germany needs to become united to preserve their freedoms and to keep peace throughout the country.
It is impossible to argue against the opportunism that Hitler utilized to make his final ascension to power. With the death of President Hindenburg and the inaction of the Enabling Act, Hitler took this perfect opportunity to final have complete power over the whole of Germany. Again it can be argued that he would never have been able to accomplish these great feats without careful planning. The events after the end of World War I up to the Munich Putsch are prime examples of Hitler’s opportunism. The Weimar Republic was set up, in many ways, to fail.
In my eyes, Hitler’s rise to power was contributed towards many smaller, effective events, which then in the end resulted in him becoming President of Germany. As he was President, he was intimidating and terrorizing the people, trying to start a dictatorship in the country. The contribution of all these small incidents is the key to Hitler’s rise to power. None of the reasons explained above, were pivotal as alone-standing acts, but more likely the combination was Hitler’s success and his final goal, to reach presidency, in his rise to power.
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.
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. He was able to get rid of the reparations and problems caused by the Treaty of Versailles, and he was able to attain new territory for the German people, yet not to the scale he wished. Hitler was a great militaristic genius, but he lacked the full cooperation of the nations around him to complete his aims.
E.g. like either sign the Treaty or start another war. The Weimar Government had to c... ... middle of paper ... ...fidence, made Hitler famous, and was the main building block for Hitler and the Nazis success. With Hitler being able to control 600 storm troopers and being able to persuade Kahr and his Ministers to support him gave him the chance to overthrow the Reichstag, and prove his controlling, leadership is what Germany needed. Hitler set up the Enabling Act knowing that the Weimar government was over.
Once Hitler thought he had enough people supporting his party, he explicit decision was to take over the Reichstag, but was to find guilty of treason. When Hitler was imprisoned, the Nazi party started to have difficulties and that is when different political ideas were emerging. After Hitler was released out of prison, he begins to regather ideas as he was given the role of chancellor. Eliminating the Reichstag and giving him all the power. The Rise of Hitler begins.
