Extracts from this document...

Introduction

How far did Germany recover under Stresemann? Before 1923 the Weimar republic faced many crisis. But the next six years after 1923 in Germany was the period of prosperity it is also known as the golden age of the Weimar republic. Gustav Stresemann had a lot of influence over Germany in the period 1923-1929. He became a chancellor in 1923 for a short period and became a foreign minister from 1923-1929. As a chancellor he introduced the new currency known as the rentenmark, to replace the old worthless marks. He ordered the striking workers in the Ruhr back to work he also solved many other problems in Germany which I will mention further in my essay. First I will examine how successful Stresemann was in helping the Weimar republic to overcome the economic and social problems which they faced. Firstly he stopped hyperinflation.

During this period people thought that the right and left wingers had disappeared but actual fact they were planning secretly. As we find out hat the right wing extremist who were Hitler and the nazi's. Hitler had started to make an army of his own known as the SA (brown shirted). Overall I think Stresemann did make the Weimar republic popular and stop violence from the right and left wing extremist. I shall now assess the extent to which he improved Germany's relation with other countries. He did this by becoming a chancellor in 1923 and in 1924 he carried out the Dawes plan. This made Germany more stable due to which in 1925 Germany signed the Locarno pact which was not to change borders with France. In 1926 Germany was allowed to join the nation league and in 1926. In 1928 signed the Kellogg Briand pact with over 60 other countries. This meant that they would never go to war with each other. Overall I think that Germany became more stable and popular which is why they were able to joint the nation league. ...read more.

Conclusion

He also improved the political situation by solving other problems in Germany made people support the Weimar republic. He did this by making people happier and fell ore secure although the disadvantage is that the right and left wingers were still around and could take power anytime as they were planning secretly. He improved the international relationship of Germany with other countries. In 1925 Germany signed the Locarno pact which was not to change borders with France. In 1926 Germany was allowed to join the nation league and in 1926. In 1928 signed the Kellogg Briand pact with over 60 other countries. This meant that they would never go to war with each other. He did improve the cultural as well by making Berlin famous for its art and clubs. This made more tourists come to Berlin most people were happy although some old people thought all these night clubs took away the traditional Germany and replaced it with the modern Germany. Stresemann did make Germany more stable and did solve the problems in the short term but not in the long term. History essay Naeema Jinwala 10b/c ...read more.
