The weakness of the democratic system, and the Weimar Republic. From the very beginning, Hitler had a reason to pick on the Weimar, it was clear that it would not last. The strength and mass growth of the Nazis helped Hitler.
Many historians, including Mckibbin and Taylor, believed that the depression was the turning point for Hitler and the nazi party. Germany's economy after World War I had been built on foreign loans, especially loans from the United States, and on world trade, which was also based on a system of loans. Thus when the depression hit, the German economy collapsed. By 1932, 6 million Germans were unemployed. 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.
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.
The Rise of the Nazi Party Hitler’s rise to power was the result of many factors, but Hitler’s ability to take advantage of Germany’s poor leadership and economical and political conditions was the most significant factor. His ability to manipulate the media and the German public whilst taking advantage of Germany’s poor leadership resulted in both the collapse of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Hitler and the nazi party. During the early 1920s, Germany was struggling with economic instability and political uncertainty. Germany, after being defeated in the Great War, was forced to sign the unforgiving treaty of Versailles, which the Weimar Republic was held responsible for. This brought forward feelings of fear, anger and insecurity towards the Weimar Republic.
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.
The weaknesses of the Republic and the strength of the Nazis led to Hitler to becoming Chancellor in 1933. He was a ruthless leader and the party became far more organized learning that it could only gain control through democratic means. The Nazis promised the people exactly what they wanted and tried to please everyone. Sources: www.projectgcse.co.uk www.johndclare.net
Hitler 's rise to power was the result of the perfect combination of events. The people of Germany were looking for change because of the terrible worldwide economic depression that left millions out of work and the burdensome Treaty of Versailles imposed by the devastating defeat in World War I. The National Socialist German Workers Party, also known as the Nazi Party, rose in Parliament and Hitler was the face of the party. The idealistic image of a new and triumphant Germany that the Nazi Party put forth appealed to young Germans who were angry, unemployed, and ready for change. Hitler gained positive national sentiment by attending Beer Halls where he would give speeches about German honor and the stories of this great speaker spread
The failure of the economy, extreme nationalism and the fragile government of Germany in the 1920’s and 30’s could also be seen as the reason for Hitler’s success(Wepman 98). The end of W.W.I left Germany in economic debt, suffering to survive. The Treaty of Versailles blamed Germany for the war and required them to pay for all the reparations. With many unemployed and homeless, the country was in economic ruins(Heck 120). To try and end their suffering, the German government printed more money, which in turn caused inflation and more problems.
Hitler's Rise to Power In 1919 The Weimar Republic encountered harsh economic, social and political problems. After the new Democratic Republic signed the armistice it put Germany not only into an economic crisis, it also caused Ebert’s Republic to get off to an unpopular start. The new government were branded ‘The November Criminals’ even though they weren’t to be blamed, and were left little choice. Some people felt the government should be based on communism, and the Spartacist uprising in 1919 caused major political problems. In 1923 problems became more difficult, and it was seen as a major success to maintain political stability under these circumstances.
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.
