The three main leaders, Ebert, Hindenburg and Stresemann all had problems. Ebert could not deliver his promises because he had to form coalitions and had to please the people that joined him. Hindenburg was not a good politician and was only in power because he was popular from the War. The best leader was Stresemann, who was respected not only within Germany but in Europe as well.

This was because Schleicher’s ‘policy of diagonal’ only attracted Strasser, for which he was ousted from the Nazi party. This was Hitler’s main opponent in the quest for leadership of the nazi party. The Weimar Republic's demise and Hitler’s rise to power are very inter-linked. This can be shown by the static enrolment for the Nazi party when Stresseman brought Germany into the era of the ‘golden years’. It could be said that opposition to democracy rose and fell in harmony with movements in prosperity.’ Hitler exploited this with his political astuteness of knowing what and when to promise things in the ‘new’ Germany.
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, 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. The instability of the newly for... ... middle of paper ... ... with other factors, lured many Germans in to believing in the nazi ideals and supporting the Nazi party whilst stirring up a hatred of the current 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.
Hitler's Rise To Power The reason I have chosen is The Treaty of Versailles. I have chosen this reason because I feel that it played a major part in Hitler's rise to power. I feel there are a number of factors why this helped Hitler's rise to power. The Treaty of Versailles One of the factors of the Treaty of Versailles that helped Hitler's rise to power was the 'War Guilt' clause. This helped Hitler because many Germans resented this clause and he could use this to his advantage by protesting Germanys innocence to the masses at Nazi rallies.
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. This also helped Hitler, and again he used it to his advantage by telling the German people that the Weimar here 'Stabbing their army in the back'. Hitler called the Weimar the 'November Criminals', because of the Armistice of November 1918. Hitler made it look like the Weimar took the easy way out and just signed the Treaty, he didn't give the Germans the facts. E.g.
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.
He and many other Germans believed that the Treaty was too harsh and should not have been enacted against them. He wished to unite all German speakers together in one country, promoting the all too familiar idea of nationalism that was present in the world at the time. After World War I there were Germans living in many countries in Europe that were not unified under one German rule. Hitler hoped that by bringing them together in one country he would create a powerful unit that would become a force to be reckoned with. Lastly he hoped to expand east... ... middle of paper ... ...r of Great Britain.
The second factor was Hitler’s ability to use the circumstances of the day to his advantage, one of which was the German depression that began in 1929. Even with Hitler’s ability to win the masses over could not have been achieved without the many external factors, like the ever worsening crisis that the government was experiencing. Hitler’s public appeal became his greatest factor in his rise to power and as such more and more people were swayed by his ideology. Finally, Hitler’s own opposition helped him, insomuch that his political rivals could neither overcome nor counter Hitler’s popularity. Hitler had to overcome many roadblocks on his way to power, one of which was internal strife within the Nazi party.
This social environment gave rise to the Nazi movement and many other parties that opposes the treaty and the Weimar Republic alike. Politically, instability and chaos plagued the Weimar Republic giving rise to many different political parties including the National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Thus, the rise of the Nazi party in Germany was due to economic hardship fostered by the Treaty of Versailles, a fractured political system, and social unrest during the interwar period. The “war to end all wars,” came to an end when the Treaty of Versailles was signed by Germany and the Allied Powers.
