The inflation in 1923, caused in part by the Versailles settlement, drove people away from democracy and towards Nazism. Socially, the Nazi movement had taken root with many conservatives as a way to unify and oppose the treaty. Books and literature written by Nazi leaders such as Hitler himself were propaganda to the movement and allowed for the party to solidify its goals. Politically, the republic was fractured and messy allowing for many parties to rise and fall out of favor.
After World War One, the German people were divided, those to the left believed that they had been lied to and deceived into fighting a war for the upper class.

However the implementation of Schleicher, to attract trade unionists and members of the NSDAP, only succeeded in making Hitler’s position in the Nazi party stronger. This was because Schleicher’s ‘policy of diagonal’ only attracted Strasser, for which he was ousted from the Nazi party.
Hitler exploited such problems by acting as a saviour. He said he would return Germany to a powerful nation. There was also unrest in Munich at the time, and with such incidents as the Munich Putsch involving the Nazi Party and Hitler, people found out about the Nazi's. With Freikorps and Marxists fighting each other, extreme conditions became a breeding ground for extremist and violent politics, hence the emergence of the Nazi party. 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.
Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party with their aggressive policies and actions, in my opinion, are to blame for the war. However, many others are responsible for allowing Hitler and Germany to be in this position and infact, the Treaty of Versailles, aiming to prevent another war, had a huge effect on Hitler coming to power in Germany and achieving a position of power from which a war could take place. Adolf Hitler was born in Austria in 1889. In 1919 he joined and took over the party later to be known as the 'Nazi' party. By 1933, due to several reasons, Hitler was able to make his party the largest in Germany and also very cleverly change the German constitution so that he could become dictator of Germany.
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.
By 1921, Adolf Hitler had gained the majority of the support of the Nazi party, and became the leader of the Nazi party with dictatorial powers. But in 1923, Hitler tried to overthrow the German Weimar Republic by force known as the Beer Hall Putsch.

Hitler’s main problem was he started to fight to many wars; he had to many fronts to defend so he couldn’t keep his defense fortification strong enough. So his empire began to fall, and his country with it.
From this point forward, it was a goal for both Hitler and his Nazi Party to rid the world of deemed “inferior” groups of people (Holocaust Encyclopedia: Timeline of Events). Adolf Hitler rose to power in Germany in 1930, after running a strong political campaign during a devastating time in German history. Germany was suffering from a disastrous economic depression resulting from World War One, and Hitler used this to his advantage by using his political skills and rising popularity to gain favor. After Hitler became Chancellor, he developed his Nazi party into a massive and powerful unit. One of Hitler’s strongest points as a leader was his military genius, and this military focus led to the start of World War Two when Hitler decided to invade Poland (Meier).
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.
How Did Hitler Rise to Power? In Sebastion Haffner’s Defying Hitler, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party is told through a firsthand experience. Through this first-hand experience, Haffner answers the question as to how the Nazis were able to rise and stay in power. The Nazi party was formed at the end of the First World War. The Nazis faced a lot of criticism for their beliefs and tactics in the early stages and were viewed as a nuisance and nothing more.
Hitler was a power hungry man who had the drive to become a political leader (Nash 492). But, the ways by which he obtained leadership were repulsive. He struck fear into the eyes of those in which opposed his teaching and killed whoever stood in his way (Nash 493). Germany faced troubling times after World War I. Hitler looked at this as the perfect opportunity to rise to power. He turned a party that consisted of a small amount of workers into the National Socialist German Workers’ party, which later became known as the Nazi party.
