Germany's Rise From Bankruptcy to a Superpower Between 1929-1939 1929 was a hard time for Germany. Hyper inflation had taken control, the Reich mark was worth nothing, and they were literally bankrupt. The reason for their bankruptcy was due to the economic collapse of America. After world war one Germany had been made to pay large reparations to France for the damage they had caused. Germany had problems paying these large reparations and called in America for help.
This opportunity though gave Hitler a chance to make the Nazi party even stronger. Hitler capitalised in on the working class and he unemployed during The Great Depression, as it was these people it most affected. A lot of people also voted for the Nazis because they didn't want communists to be in power so they saw the Nazis as a way of getting rid of them. The Nazis saw their votes rise to 6,000,000 by 1933. The Nazis saw the ever-growing weakness in the Weimar Republic and they used this to their advantage in attacking their policies and ruling.
Why Hitler Became Chancellor in 1933 When Germany was blamed by the Allies that they were responsible for the starting/ causing the Great War, they made up the conclusion that Germany had to sign the Treaty of Versailles in an unconditional surrender. In one of the conditions was that Germany would have to pay the compensation fee for the other countries (especially France) but Germany was already in a situation that was a mess. The German Government did not have enough money to pay the compensation fee and it printed more so the economy went straight down into the bottom of the valley. The allies came up of a solution that the United States banks lent Germany money to pay the compensation fee of the result of losing World War I. The economy went better.
When answering how the Nazi party came to rule in Germany, one must look at foreign policy in respect to the Versailles Treaty during the Second Reich. Economically, due to the settlement at Versailles, Germany would be hit by massive inflation as well as a crippling depression under the Weimar Republic. This made many people distrust the newly created Weimar Republic. Socially, Germans generally blamed the government, as well as the Treaty of Versailles for the hard times that they suffered after the First World War. This social environment gave rise to the Nazi movement and many other parties that opposes the treaty and the Weimar Republic alike.
The Depression brought Hitler and the Nazis to power. One of the many reasons for Hitler becoming leader was because he promised to tear up the Treaty of Versailles. The first chance of survival, which happened to be Hitler who gave them promises, which they hoped were true, was ... ... middle of paper ... ...made them delay rearmament and become isolated. France came across the same problems as all the other countries. Loss of jobs, homes and the country became desperate.
As a result, all the power and taxes Germany lost were given to Germany’s enemies who were the triple alliance (Johndclare.net). In fact, Germany was also banned from joining Austria on purpose, just to keep Germany weak (johndclare.net). Although, Germany hated the government for signing the treaty, they had no choice because the allies would have continued the war and invade Germany itself (Bolotta A., Hawkes C., Jarman F., Keirstead M.
In conclusion Germany went down under after the Treaty of Versailles, which made them pay reparations of around 33 Billion US dollars, and then Hitler brought them up through persuasion and new political tactics to get territories for Germany and to wipe out Jews rights and liberties, whom he blamed for Germany's horrible economy during late 1920's early 1930's. He then led the country of Germany to believe him and his extreme ideas, which began the Holocaust. The greediness of Hitler led to the start of World War II after he was not contempt with Czechoslovakia and Austria. He invaded Poland and became a very powerful war leader till his decline, which ended World War II. This all leads to the conclusion that if Hitler never came to Nazi Power, World War II would have never started.
They weren't allowed to build up their army or weapons. Because they owed so much money, it wasn't long before the currency became worthless due to hyperinflation and France invaded the Ruhr. The unfairness of the treaty caused bitterness in Germany, and Hitler always blamed the collapse of the country on, among others, the "November Criminals", the men who signed the armistice that ended the war. The treaty created the conditions for Hitler's rise to power, as he promised he would put this unfair treaty right and make Germany great again. However, at the end of the war, Adolf Hitler was one of the millions of unemployed and worked for the government as a "V-man", spying on opposing parties.
East Prussia was a great source of money for Germany and th... ... middle of paper ... ..., first in inflation and then in the Great Depression. He promised a way out of economic hardship and the reassertion of Germany’s claim to status as a world power.” (pg. 806) The treaty of Versailles was humiliating; it forced Germany to accept the full responsibility for the war. The treaty also commanded that no German troops could be stationed in their industrial heartland; it capped their military size for the country; it took away foreign holdings and forced Germany to pay reparations that were crippling. The treaty of Versailles paved the rise of Hitler and the Nazis just as the World War I did for the Communist revolution in Russia.
Adolf Hitler was. Hitler took charge; a majority of Germans needed help from the only party that promised change, so they could get out of this economic depression. In what ways did the Great Depression of Germany in 1929 help Hitler rise to power? This may have led to one of the most horrific genocides in world history. 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.
