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 people and lost all hope in the Weimar republic, and started looking for a radical change, brought forth party radical parties...the communists and the nazis. As a result of 1929, Hitler became remarkably popular. He made promises to the military and to industrialists saying that he would return Germany back to greatness once again. Hitler exploited the trust of the German public to its fullest during these times of hardship so he could gain the support he needed to gain full control of the German state. The weakness of the Constitution of the Weimar Republic significantly helped Hitler establish and develop the Nazi party.
Hitler’s political activity was part luck and part skill; he found a way to turn the sentence of treason that was against him and turn it into a political stepping-stone to power. While Hitler and his generals successfully changed the world, they made too many mistakes, both military and otherwise, for the Nazi party ever to lead the world into Hitler’s dream of the thousand-year Reich. After the Beer Hall Putsch and Hitler’s subsequent imprisonment at Landsberg, he was told that he would receive a public trial. This public trial brought Hitler’s spirits up as he felt that this would give him the mass media coverage he needed and the chance to show how evil, stupid and cowardly his Government truly was. He was right, a Nazi sympathizer in the Bavarian Government chose all of the judges.
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.
Hitler's Becoming a Dictator There are many factors that allowed Hitler to seize power in 1934. One reason was the Munich Putsch, which put Hitler in jail and allowed him to write “Mein Kampf” and the 25-point programme, which helped him to win votes. Another reason was the Wall Street crash, which caused another depression in Germany, which made people vote for the Nazi party. Another reason Hitler was able to come into power was the Reichstag fire, which the Nazis blamed on a communist and this affected the 1933 Election in their favour. The fire also allowed Hitler to pass the “Enabling act”, which basically meant that no one could oppose him and Germany had to do what he said without question.
1. Why is it difficult to really know how popular Hitler and the Nazis were among the German People? Briefing 6, “How Did People React to Nazism”, clearly highlights the discrepancies between German people’s interpretations of Nazism and Hitler in the 1930s and after 1945, which demonstrates the uncertainty of Hitler’s true popularity. Initially in the 1930s, German citizens were unable to “express decent” and were coerced into passive acceptance of the Nazi ideology. This pressure to conform to Hitler’s homogenous Volksgemeinschaft, and the uniform propaganda of the mass media, presented Germany as a homogenous society whom admired Hitler.
His nationalistic and passionate speaking skills gained him the respect of many Germans in very bad times. As Hitler rose to power the future destruction of Germany began. The Treaty of Versailles played a significant role in the country of Germany after World War I. The Big Three constructed the treaty with all of their own ideas and they came up with a deal that took Germany out of the national picture until World War II. The treaty effected Germany economically, militarily, socially, and politically.
Macbeth murdered king Duncan to rise to power in a unnatural way while Hitler was legally elected to power by the german people because his plan of seeking to right the wrongs of WW1 and bringing glory back to the german people was very popular. Hitler and Macbeth were both overly ambitious for power which led them down bloody paths to their eventual downfalls. Although Macbeth and Hitler are similar in their quest for power and glory, Macbeth is heavily influenced to gain power while Hitler acted on his own. Macbeth and Hitler are similar in the way they are viewed by the common people. In the beginning of Macbeth, Macbeth can be seen as a leader.
Hitler gained a lot of respect, since he criticized the Weimar Republic publicly and in every speech he held, he spoke out what the German people thought. Hitler and the Nazis promised the inhabitants of Germany jobs and a strong leader if they would vote for the Nazi party with... ... middle of paper ... ...impact in Hitler’s rise to power. Whether some reasons are long-term causes and others short-term causes there is not only one specific event, which lead to Hitler’s success. Presumably the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor by President Hindenburg and von Papen was a much more prosperous event than the Enabling Law, in 1933. 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.
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.
