Due to America’s depression, Germany was put into a dire state as unemployment increased, thus resulted in the Nazi gaining votes during the 1933 election. The depression caused desperation within the people that made them feel that the Weimar Republic could not look after them or the country’s financial problems. Hitler made promises to get rid of the unemployment rate, thus gaining the support of the public. Although the Great Depression was a key factor to Hitler’s rise to power but there were other causes: the German’s were looking for a saviour and Hitler happened to be that person; Hitler also played on the German’s fear factor of Communism and Communist which led him to get votes from the middle to higher class citizens by the burning of the Reichstag.

Katznelson points out that this period of history was driven by politicians during the New Deal started creating government programs in order to take care of the wellbeing of people, their work, and during World War II in the 1930s and 1940s. The government intentionally single out and treated the vast majority of African Americans very differently.

Simply put, that the New Deal union was being framed as a real mean middle man, making bargains between white people that want to help (aka progressives) and the white people that do not want to help and keep all the government benefit to themselves (aka

With the failure of the national economy, there was there was less of a demand for the coal and mineral wealth coming from the mines in Colorado. Agriculture, in particular, would be hard hit by the Great Depression as drought (combined with ecologically unsound farming techniques) and a drop in grain prices( that had been artificially enhanced by demand created by WWI) would eventually lead to the dustbowl of the 1930s. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt became president he initiated the “New Deal” to help the nation overcome its problems. “ The western population at large grew by one-eighth, nearly twice the national rate.
