As well as denoting and representing the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe this event led to the reunification of Germany. The East German deliberation allowed the Chancellor of West Germany, Helmut Kohl, to reunite Germany under Western conditions. This meant a consolidated Germany would join NATO and the European
German expressionism originated in 1919; from 1924 it began to decline and experienced approximately five years. Speaking of Germany 's political and economic background at that time, it had to mention the Weimar Republic. During 1919 to 1933, German was in the period of the Weimar Republic. The German Federal Law was enacted in 1919; Friedrich Ebert was the first President. He made it clear on principles of popular sovereignty and created the German history of the Republic.
In response the U.S., which had remained neutral until that point, joined the Allies in opposition to Germany. This fact made the scale of war much larger than it was before, earning its name 'World War 1'. This was due to Germany's original tactics for prestige backfiring, allowing the balance of power to shift and letting rash and unnecessary decisions pass. Therefore Germany not only started the war, but it continued to fuel the war for the next four years while it
The Fascist ruler won the civil war. Germany was struggling with social and economic problems during the 1920s, experiencing a complete monetary collapse and finding a way to recover from it. Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933 with the promise of nation building and making Germany a super power and reclaiming what was lost in the war of 1918. Hitler’s Lieutenant, Joseph Goebbels, called for a revolution from below to make the German nation “into a single people”. This led to the racial purification of the German population during the Second World War.
Peter Müller of Swing Kids At the start of the 1930s, Germany began to experience the effects of the worldwide economic depression. The government at the time, the Weimar Republic, was perceived as weak to many Germans, and the democratic rule was unable to provide the country with a solution to its economic despair. With the Weimar Republic’s lack of popularity and the increasing anger and impatience amongst Germans, Adolf Hitler offered false promises of a prosperous future that raised the hopes of German people. Hitler and the Nazi Party’s claims and encouraging economic policies gained support quickly. In 1933, Hitler was elected chancellor and the Nazi Party became the ruling party in Germany.
This process didn’t happen overnight by Adolf Hitler declaring himself as the Fürher of Germany, but it was a long process that stretched out for over more than a decade. Joseph W. Bendersky’s book A Concise History of Nazi Germany includes meticulous details from history that describe the rise, rule, and fall of Nazism in Germany, which causes for it to be a reliable source for the study of Nazism in Germany and will further aid my final research paper in the rise of Hitler’s Nazi Party. Bendersky’s book maintains an intensive focus on the entire history of Nazi Germany, beginning in 1918, and draws most of the attention towards how Nazism swept over Germany. An example Bendersky gives in his book, is the outside influences on Nazi lead government ideals. To demonstrate this, what Joseph W. Bendersky brings to the spot light is that the communist Soviet Union
From the very beginning, Hitler and the Nazi Party had very clear ideas and objectives. They had two main aims, and in order to expand and dominate the diplomatic stage in Europe, they had to achieve these aims. Firstly, Hitler followed a revisionist policy, which was to ignore and end the Treaty of Versailles. The treaty severely limited Germany’s power, with territory loss and the creation of the Polish Corridor. Their army was reduced to 100,000 men, their navy and air force were restricted, Anschluss with Austria was forbidden and they had to pay reparations of a total of 6.6 billion pounds.
Germany was not allowed to join the League of nations until 1926. Germany was greatly disadvantaged, because it couldn’t protect it’s citizens from outside threats, and was humiliated due to the rigorous demands of the treaty of Versailles, and the terrible loss of the war. Germany was no longer seen as powerful by the other nations, since it couldn’t even join the league of nations until 7 years after it was established. The United States, the nation that created the League of nations abandoned it to focus on itself. Which didn’t raise much question when Hitler ordered the German delegates to leave the League of nations that they were only a part of because they forced themselves in.
In the second half of this paper the different consequences of this victory for Germany will be examined. These are political, economic and social consequences. Before 1870, Germany was politically divided. It was one of the German states, Prussia, who became a developed strong power. Historian Geoffrey Wawro said that 'in matter of days, Prussia climbed from the lower rungs of great power '.1 This was enforced by the different wars previous to the Franco-Prussia war, with in particular the Austro-Prussian war in 1866.2 Prussia was a new power that could unite Germany.
