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.
To what extent was Hitler's success in coming to power due to the depression? Hitler became chancellor in January 1933. By March he had full dictatorial power. There is no doubt that the impact of the depression on the German people gave way to the rise of Hitler. It was the single most important factor of Hitler's coming to power, however it wasn't the only factor.
Ther German currency lost so much value that people were struggling to buy a simple loaf of bread. The reason the great depression helped Hitler was because he promised the people of Germany that he would rebuild Germany to its former self. He promised jobs which mainly came through the army, this in affect helped Hitler realise one of his other promises which was to take Revenge on those who left Germany crippled after the war. This made him and the Nazis wildly popular in Germany during the 1930s. In just a few short years,... ... middle of paper ... ...ason Hitler rose up and became one of the most charasmatic and respected leader at the time, this was due to many different factors which each played a key role in his rise to power.
Hitler saw this as a chance to gain support for his new Nazi party as people were starting to look for a new government. The Weimar republic was very weak and so they were split into coalitions. The Weimar republic needed to print more money, which in turn caused hyperinflation in the German economy. A long-term cause to Hitler’s rise to power was the fact that Germany hated the treaty of Versailles and so they sided with Hitler because he promised to abolish it. Finally Hitler blamed the Jews, socialists and the Catholics for the mutiny in he last year of the war to take advantage of the German people to get them on his side and gain supporters for his Nazi party.
To solve this problem the government printed more money but without the economy to support it caused massive hyperinflation and the first German depression. This helped Hitler because the political and economical problems in the Weimer Republic caused many Putsches' to take place one led by Hitler in 1923. When this putsch was put down and Hitler was imprisoned it convinced him to change he tactics of getting to power from brute force to electoral system. Hitler could also use the fact that the treaty had been signed as a policy. Constantly promising to abolish the treaty and attacking to Weimer government calling the government traitors and weak.
Also what was unfair the German's were not there when the terms where drawn up, so this made them unhappy but they also felt the terms were hypocritical and unjust. The terms of the Treaty were too harsh and the German people refused to agree to them The Treaty crippled Germany by making them pay reparations for the damages caused. Hitler was a wise man and used this to his advantage. He knew that the German's were in serious trouble with money and debts, sp he made promises to get them out of the hardship and out of unemployment, he used his 25 point program to try and achieve this. Hitler spoke well of these things he promised to do and won many Germens over, as they were still bitter over the signing of the Treaty, by the Weimar Government.
The German Community during the Hitler Reign In the time leading up to and during Hitler’s reign in Germany, German citizens felt the impacts of the political as well as the economic situation of the country. These conditions in Germany led to the building of the Nazi party and to the Holocaust. The new government headed by Adolf Hitler changed the life of all Germans whether they joined the Nazi party themselves or opposed the ideas of Hitler or aided Jews to fight the persecution they suffered under this government. In 1929, Germany was in a very poor state economically. The stock market crash and depression in the United States had spread world wide, and Germany felt a large portion of the blow.
Revolutions happen in times of desperation, and with the economic depression causing 5.6 million people in Germany to be unemployed, one could fairly argue that the situa... ... middle of paper ... ...success, for if Hitler had not proved worthy (such as his precedes) he would have lost all favour. Hitler did infact exploit the political crisi of Germany, by holding rallies, and touring Germany with his promises for the economy, but one is lead to believe that although Hitlers 'storm troopers' attacked stray opposers, surely if the entire country of Germany was unhappy with Hitlers points they could have removed him from power, as they did once before. For this reason, it becomes clear that the depression was not the main reason that Hitler became Chancellor in 1933, Hitler was a very cunning but intelligent man, and at the time, society valued him and his promises. It was infact Hitlers personal qualities, and manipulation that allowed him to appeal to society, engage with them, and become their Chancellor in 1933.
The SA were also used to create fear before elections, in order to get more support for the NSDAP, and also after the Reichstag fire to get support for the Enabling Act. Other, however merciless, violence was the most successful method of eradicating opponents to the regime. Hitler al... ... middle of paper ... ...ppointment as Chancellor, and in 1934, with the help of Hindenburg's death, Hitler had become almost a dictator. By 1938, his only other opponents were dealt with in much less violent ways. Hitler's greatest success was defeating the Right Wing, as he acted very quickly, and his opponents were killed, so had no chance of further opposition.
Therefore he took over at a time when Germany looked economically weak, bitter and still blaming America and Europe for their financial problems. The reparations system had faltered due to the Wall Street Crash and America could no longer provide the loans. Hitler knew he was under a lot of pressure to make successful changes within Germany, although he also knew German people were in a vulnerable position and in search of an answer to their problems; to gain support Hitler had to tell them what they wanted to hear. From they changes to the economy Hitler decided to make there were several segments of German people that benefited or lost out. In some cases different areas would benefit as well as lose out from Hitler’s seize of power on the economical front.
