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.

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.

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.

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.
