(-- removed HTML --) Germany’s economy was suffering and Germans were struggling through brutal fuel and food shortages. Many had decided that the sections were still controlling many cities. Generals recommended a new civilian government and Germany was soon turned into a parliamentary democracy. The power of the army and navy were handed over to Reichstag by the Kaiser, Wilhelm II. The goal of
This absence of German products on the market caused many countries to produce these materials themselves or buy from other countries. This even started the chemical industry in America which has been dubbed “America’s second industrial revolution” by many (LINK). This not only damaged Germany’s war time industry but destroyed its post war industry as there was little to no need for German products after the war as most countries had found new suppliers or developed the industry themselves during the war. With the absence of the strong German industry, Germany had no economy to bear the burden of the expensive war and the political and social unrest of the Weimar
Although the main cause of World War 1 was determined to be Germany by the Treaty of Versailles, this is controversial. The Treaty of Versailles crippled Germany’s economy and government. Kaiser Wilhelm and all of Germany was basically shut out by the majority of the world considering no one wanted to be hurt like they just had seen Germany been. Germany just lost all of their important allies and were on their own at this point. Germany went through a great depression, the government tried to make more money to make the depression go away but this was the worst thing the German government could have done.
After Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles nations of Germany had live miserable lives, because high inflation happened in Germany. Germany made a wrong decision when they had to pay money. Instead of taxing people to give money for the damage to Allies, Germany borrowed a lot of money from other countries. As a result they had to pay more money with a huge debt. However German government printed more money to pay off the debt but it caused inflation.
The Western occupation was a huge success. In a decade German was transformed from the most terrifying totalitarian power on earth to a democratic nation, fully compatible with the other Western democracies. Although not fully perceived in 1945, Germany had a substantial democratic tradition. The Weimar Republic following World War I was a fully functioning parliamentary democracy. Hitler's success in dismantling that system within only a few weeks suggests, however, that democracy was not yet ingrained in the minds of the German
In 1871,Germany economic development rapidly.At the first World War Germany has become one of the world 's "two most advanced emerging capitalist countries," and total industrial output exceeded the United Kingdom and France. The failure of the first World War made German economy has been severely hit, a large number of companies bankruptcy, about 6000000 people lost their jobs, countless families struggling between life and death.However at this time,Nazi seized the urgent mentality of people who wants to change their life and launched a strong inflammatory propaganda, which attracted the German people, especially young people, who wanted to survive. In real life, Germany as the first World War defeated countries, the territory is reduced, the domestic market is open to foreign countries, and then met the global economic crisis, so they suffered greater economic losses and political crisis. Therefore, people are disappointed with the current rule. Some monopoly capitalists believe that the only way to suppress the revolution, get rid of the crisis, to recover the loss is let Hitler to establish fascist dictatorship,and they put a lot of expectation on Nazi Party led by Hitler.
The German Revolution had some success because a Declaration of the Rights of German People was created. It gave rights to just the Germans and not all of mankind. On the other hand, the German revolutions did not have success because Frederick William IV did not agree to rule over and unite Germany. Frederick realized that it would start a war with Austria and make him a constitutional monarch which he did not want to do or be. Everything in Germany went
Germany was required to pay 132 billion gold marks, or 367 billion US dollars, over a course of thirty years (C, Source 2). This evidence supports the idea that the reparation payments helped cause World War Two because it not only angered the Germans, it also humiliated them. Due to this anger and humiliation, Germany paid little of these payments in the 1920s (C, Source 2). In 1933, German Adolf Hitler came into power and ceased all reparation payments. Germany also lost significant land because of The Treaty of Versailles such as Alsace and Lorraine.
After all it had started when a Serbian shot an Austrian. It was felt that Germany had been simply made a scapegoat by the other countries for all that had happened. Looking back it is clear that the Treaty of Versailles created more problems than it actually solved. The treaty broke up empires and changed boundaries. The Germans lost territory and other countries tried to weaken Germany’s military potential and strengthen their own to compensate for the destruction of their lands caused by the Germans.
I will explain why I think that the putsch itself failed, but successfully, if indirectly played a part in how the Nazis rose to power. In 1923, Stresemann called off the passive resistance in the Ruhr and agreed that Germany would start paying the reparation fees again. Many right-winged enemies of the Weimar Republic felt betrayed, humiliated and wounded in their pride. Their
