During 1929-1939 despite Germany’s rapid growth, the German economy wasn’t strong enough to take on the Great Depression. In many ways, the Great Depression was the key to Hitler, and his Nazi Party’s rise to power. The Great Depression was the key point in German history that
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. It was a new industrial power which experienced rapid industrialisation.3 Prussian and the Saxon coal mines 'were outproducing French mines three-to-one... '4 as coal production increased 114% in the 1860s.5 This had an effect on new ways of warfare with for example with guns but also the use of railways.6 Paul Kennedy claimed: ' “The struggle for mastery in Germany” was almost complete; but the clash over who was supreme in western Europe, Prussia or an increasingly nervous and suspicious France, had been brought much closer..

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.

Working Poor “When the poor or newly poor are asked to define poverty, however, they talk not only about what’s in the wallet but what’s in the mind or the heart” (Shipler 10). The United States of America is a place which has an enormous population filled with foreigners and immigrants. Many enter America to get a better job, a fresh start, and to live the American Dream. In the 21st century, the gap between the rich and the poor has greatly widened even though America’s economy is skyrocketing as the years go by. Poverty has been a major issue due to various occasions but people who are in the middle and high classes do not know the hardships these poor workers go through just so that they could have a chance to own valuables.
They all lived very close together and neighbors might have even shared outdoor water pumps and toilets. The houses they lived were dilapidated and unsanitary. They barely had enough to eat and when they did, they would eat meat only twice a week. The poorest of the poor would be spotted shopping for the scraps that the butchering businesses didn’t want. Education was only received when children attended Sunday school, and only ⅔ of the children included in the working class population even attended that.
Between 1870 and 1900, an estimated 25 million immigrants had made their way to the United States. This era, titled the Gilded Age, played an extremely important role in the shaping of American society. The United States saw great economic growth and social changes; however, as the name suggested, the Gilded Ages hid a profound number of problems. During this period of urbanization, the publicizing of wealth and prosperity hid the high rates of poverty, crime, and corruption. European immigrants who had come to the United States in search of jobs and new opportunities had fallen into poverty as well as poor working and living conditions.
WORLD WAR I: Germany waged World War I in 1914 due to their increasing fear of the rise of Russia. Russia had a much greater potential power than Germany due to their sizeable land mass and increasingly industrialized economy. While Germany was widely regarded as the predominant military state in Europe, by 1917, Russia would overtake them. Russia’s future intentions were unclear, and Germany preferred major war instead of a dominant state of immense size and power. Therefore, in 1912, Germany began preparations to enact major war that could (hopefully) be blamed on Russia.
