He became an intelligence officer in the military, and then became a member of the German Workers Party, or later, Nazi, and finally moved up to the position of the chairman of the Nazi. Along the way of getting these positions, however,Hitler had became popular because of his speeches against other politicians, Jews, and the Treaty of Versailles. With his new popularity, Hitler was able to run for Germany’s president during Germany’s great depression. Although he lost the election both rounds to the rival candidate, Paul Von Hindenburg, Hindenburg had appointed him chancellor. This new position in Germany’s government gave Hitler the opportunities he needed to seize control of the country.
He rose to power in German politics after joining the party which he was monitoring as an army officer, and became its leader. Hitler became chancellor of Germany in 1933, and served as a dictator from 1934 to 1945. His policies accelerated World War II. Adolf Hitler committed suicide with his wife Eva Braun on April 30, 1945 in his Berlin lair. This Speech was made in response to the July Bomb Plot.
The weaknesses faced by the Weimar Republic was known which also enabled Hitler to exploit the weaknesses of the left and the moderates. Appearing to be the strong leader and withholding the communication skills needed to lead a country, he was able to gain the votes he needed (Orlow 'Modern Germany ' p.185). There were violent strikes in the streets, back and forth fighting, rioting. People were killed and the people of Germany, who feared Communism and despise chaos, sided with the “volkishe” parties, who promised to establish law and order. The people of Germany thought rather than having thousands die it would be better to have law and order and break a few heads than to live with that chaos.
Germany economic situation became so bad and unbearable that they had to use a ransom sums of money in a wheel borrow to buy a loaf of bread. In addition, the treaty of Versailles posed a great financial burden on the German because Germans had to pay a huge sum of money to their opponents. By the end of the war, 10 000’s of German soldiers died of poison gas, which was instituted by US in the war. The poison gas infiltrated armies lungs and blinded most of them including Adolf Hitler. Fortunately for Hitler, he regained his sight and was awarded with blind cross.
Germany had been an empire until the First World War, the loss of which shook the German people to their very foundations. The psychological impact of going from an empire to a defeated nation was utterly traumatic. At the same time, Marxism was raging throughout Europe, toppling numerous governments and seen as a threat everywhere by the establishments. Hitler made people feel they were great again and played to their nationalistic and patriotic sentiments. It was easier for people to believe they were great and stab them in the back than to believe they had been failures and deserved what was happening to them.
Hitler had used propaganda and other tactics to make the German people eager for war. He used the treaty of Versailles as an example for the German people as their anger on the loss of World War one and their treatment under the treaty of Versailles to make them want to take revenge. Moreover, after a winter of waiting, Hitler resumed back to attack on April 9, 1940, nevertheless, as The Blitzkrieg tactic had succeeded on Poland, Hitler attacked Denmark and Norway and occupied them. One month later, Germany launched attacked on Netherlands, Belgium, and France. The main assault was through the Luxembourg and the Ardennes Forest.
The Treaty of Versailles was the Treaty signed by Germany, France, Britain, and the USA in 1919 on June 28th. The “Big Three” all had their personal aggressions towards Germany and as a result the Treaty was rather harsh. The Treaty of Versailles was significant to some extent to Hitler’s rise to power in 1933 because it left the people of Germany vulnerable and confused which made Hitler’s extreme ideas easier to appeal to. Economically, it left Germany’s economy in tatters due to the reparations. Socially, there was the war guilt clause which caused an outrage amongst the German people.
The methods used include propaganda, promises, and scapegoating as well as the measures taken following the election in 1930. To begin with, in order to understand how Hitler was able to rise to power in Germany, it is important to analyze the circumstances that the country found itself in. When the Versailles Treaty was signed in 1919, Germany felt itself treated deeply unfairly. It had not been invited to the peace talks, and nearly none of the 14 points set
Hitler's rise to power cannot be attributed to a single factor, but a combination of events, some of which were happening outside of Germany, the strength of the Nazi party and the weakness of the other parties attributed greatly to his rise. Hitler used these factors to his advantage and in 1933 he legitimately gained power to become the chancellor of Germany. The treaty of Versailles was one of the most important factors that led to Hitler's rise to power in Germany. From Germany's point of view the treaty was incredibly harsh and devastating that left them feeling humiliated. The treaty required them to relinquish their military power, substantial portions of their land, their say in international affairs and their respect.
Nowadays people ask themselves how it was possible for WW2 and the Holocaust to happen and why the Nazis and Hitler became so very powerful and successful. To answer that question one has to take a look at how they managed to seize power during the inter war years and the events that took place. In his propaganda speech in front of the Reichstag in April 1939 Hitler claimed having singlehandedly accomplished the rise of the Nazi party with the words: “I have accomplished all this, as one who 21 years ago was still an unknown worker and soldier of my people, by my own efforts…” (Ian Kershaw, The Führer Myth: How Hitler won over the German People). Since there were a lot of components which led to Hitler becoming Chancellor on January 30th 1933 and a lot of people who the Nazi party was dependent on, it seems quite
Hitler combined terror and propaganda, with his new policies to turn the unsuspecting Germany into a totalitarian state. Along with the Hitler youth to ensure that the next generation would be loyal to the NAZI ideology. In 1928 Hitler and the NAZI party got 2.6% of the votes (Pearson, 2013). Then in 1932 the NAZI party received 37.7% of the votes (Pearson, 2013). This was due to the NAZI campaign and propaganda.
World War I ended in 1918 with the victorious Allied powers, and the peace-promising Treaty of Versailles. However, this treaty 's peace did not last long as its unrealistic demands caused strong resentment within the Central powers against the Allied powers. Territorial losses, reparation payments, and inflation all left Europe in economic ruins. The damage and destruction that resulted from World War I paved a clear path that allowed for World War II to occur. It began in 1933 when Adolf Hitler gained power and, with the help of the Nazi Party, turned Germany in a totalitarian dictatorship.
Though World War 1 and World War 2 were 21 years apart, the two events are undoubtedly connected. When the Allies won in World War 1, they set up systems and agreements like the Treaty of Versailles that were intended prevent another war. The true outcomes however, seemed to be completely opposite of the Allies goal. Perhaps because the only reason most Ally nations wanted peace might`ve been to hold onto newfound power. The decisions made by the winners after November 11, 1918 indirectly led the world into a global depression and began World War 2.

The Weimar Republic is a term which is referring to a period in German history when the government was a democratic republic governed by a constitution that was laid out in the German city of Weimar. The Weimar Republic was created at a hard and chaotic time, subsequent to the loss of the war and many people wished the government wouldn 't have signed the treaty. Hitler and the Nazis took advantage of this by promising to “reverse the treaty” which helped them gain support. The German people just wanted to get out of the starving, bankrupt tragedy and thought that Hitler would help with that. The Weimar Republic was one of the most important events that led up to Hitler and the Nazi Party along with World
