Hitler one of the 20th century's most powerful dictators, he gained
power through positive reasons and negative reasons. He had an appeal
to every type of German, women, the middle-class, young men and the
unemployed. He gave Germans hope, his party-the Nazi party promised to
do something to end the depression. So German people began to listen
to this, in particular they looked at the Nazis. Hitler appealed that
Germany could be great and return to national prosperity (rise again)
if given the opportunity. This opportunity was Hitler.
After his release from prison in December 1924, Hitler rebuilt the
Nazi party and waited for the opportunity to regain national
influence. That opportunity came with the great depression of 1929.
The Nazis were prepared to do anything to claim votes, they were
brutal. They would go to great lengths to get German supporters.
Organizing meeting after meeting, terrorizing political foes with
groups of party thugs, Hitler spread his gospel of racial hatred and
contempt for democracy. Nazi members (SA) would use violence, threaten
people, cause riots and generally get people to vote for them out of
fear. They played an important role. They beat up the opposition,
especially the communists, and smashed up their election meetings.
This made it very difficult for the communists to run a free election
campaign. Which was intended.
Support for the Nazi party was due to the growing belief that it was a
party with a leader who could do something about Germanys problems.
When the great depression struck, many Germans accepted his
explanation of it as a Jewish-Communist plot. He had hatred towards
Jews and thought them responsible for signing the Treaty of
Versailles. He also blamed the communists because he completely hated
the idea of communism. The Nazis linked the two together stating that
most communists were Jews, of course this wasn't true. The Nazis
promised much: a strong Germany, jobs, and national glory, he
attracted millions of voters. The Nazis were prepared to promise
anything to win votes, even if they had no intention of following

- Hitler was and is a well known man, but not many know how he came to power. We know he killed thousands of Jews, but do we know why. The Holocaust was a monumental point in history; it not only started the Second World War but it also changed the lives of many Jewish survivors. Hitler was the highest ranked authority in Germany and could do whatever he wanted at the time. However, he did not just acquire this position immediately, he went through many changes in leadership before he finally rose to the top.... [tags: nazi, jews, holocaust]

- Hitler’s rise to power was cemented on August 2nd, 1934 with the death of Hindenburg. Already holding the title of Chancellor, he took over the presidency and became the Führer of Germany. Hitler’s success was only possible because of many issues within Germany. The Great Depression, sparked by the withdrawal of loans by America, led to desperation in people wanting to avoid the economic and social hardship seen during the Hyperinflation of 1923. The political system was on rocky ground within Germany and the Weimar Government, only founded after WWI was only relatively new and still very fragile....

- 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....

- ... Patrick Mott said it best, "Take away the dictator’s ability to punctuate his speech with his hands and arms and you’re left with a frothing, sputtering caricature flopping around behind the lectern like a beached shark – not exactly the object of blind, hypnotized devotion" (Mott). Every good speaker needs gestures to make their speech more memorable. The speaker uses gestures to appeal to the emotions, or ethos, of their audience to make the audience excited to listen to what the speaker is saying.... [tags: from Chancellor to World Dictator]

- In retrospect, Adolf Hitler’s rise to power is a bit late to fully grasp the gravity of the situation in order to fulfill the desire of getting to the skin and bones of the subject; one must travel a few centuries into the future, eventually arriving to 19th century Germany. Sure Hitler’s early regime is a prime source of scrutiny in an attempt to gauge the signs of his readiness to implement a plan of attack against Jews and also serve as a source for pre-Nazism, but what was before this. There is a common denominator between Hitler’s worldview and the German people’s worldview.... [tags: Germany, Adolf Hitler, Nazism, Nazi Germany]

- Adolf Hitler’s gain of power started shortly after World War I. The German nation had suffered a defeat in the first World War and needed to bounce back as one of the powerful nations in Europe. While Hitler was unsuccessful in gaining power immediately, over time he did gain the control that he sought. Accordingly, he turned around Germany’s outlook before abusing his authority and being one of the main reasons for World War II. Hitler’s rise and exploitation of power went from restoring German national pride after World War I to the full-blown attack on the Jews by taking advantage of the unfortunate situation that World War I created in Germany and building a false sense of hope among the...

- The Reichstag Fire and Hitler's Power A week before the elections in Germany (27th February 1933) the Reichstag Building was burnt down. Some people blame Hitler for the fire, others blame Van de Lubbe or the communists. Hitler wanted to gain control of the whole of Germany and have all German support. So although Hitler was chancellor, and leader of his political party, he was not yet a dictator. To achieve his goal of being a dictator, he felt the need to put a set of emergency powers in to place, taking away the basic rights and freedoms of the German public.... [tags: Free Essays]

- Hitler is one of the greatest known dictators in our world's history. He is said to be "the Rousseau, the Mirabeau, the Robespierre and the Napoleon of his revolution; he was its Marx, its Lenin, its Trotsky and its Stalin." He was in fact a mad man, but at the same time a genius. Not only did he convince people to go to war just 20 years after World War 1, he also influenced an entire society to commit genocide on their own people. Hitler's actions may be found very interesting for people who are familiar with his childhood and education.... [tags: World History]

Only the Jews and communists were left out of plans for Germany.
The Nazis were also well organized. They were disciplined, and
portrayed Hitler as a strong leader who would save Germany.
All the things the Nazi party had said and promised had paid off. Nazi
election campaigning was effective. The elections of 1933 brought
Hitler to power and he quickly established himself as dictator.
Hitler had a charismatic personality of overpowering forcefulness. An
amoral man, rootless and incapable of personal friendships, he looked
on his fellow humans as mere bricks in the world structure he wished
to erect. He knew how to appeal to people's basic instincts and made
use of their fears and insecurities. He could do that, however, only
because they were willing to be led, even though his programmed was
one of hatred and violence. His impact was wholly destructive, and
nothing of what he instituted and built survived.
