Select and Explain the Most Important Factors that Led to Hitler's Rise to Power in 1933? Mahmoud Elsherif Within this essay, I will pick and describe the main vital factors in Hitler's rise to power. The factors I will pick are the Treaty of Versailles, His History, the Munich Putsch, The economic depression of 1929, his speech-making and management, and the verdict made by Von Papen and Hindenburg to employ Hitler as chancellor. I will describe and assess the factor's importance and choose which are the main vital factors in Hitler's rise to the higher order of the German administration. The Treaty of Versailles was a terrible blow for Germany and its people because they had to accept the War Guilt Clause (this is to accept all blame for starting WW1) and they also had to pay $6.6 billion reparations. The people and government thought that the Allies were being really harsh to the people because they didn't have enough money. But the Treaty created resentment towards not only the Allies but to the government themselves because they of might thought that the upper class wasn't going to pay and the middle class thought they have to pay. ...read more.


On 9th November the three Bavarian leaders went back on their words and ordered the army to attack R.M and his troops. R.M. needed help from Hitler and the Nazis. So Hitler, Ludendorff and 2000 Nazis went to help him. The armed police shot at the Nazis as they were there way into Munich. 16 Nazis died. Hitler and Ludendorff were arrested and the revolt collapsed. Hitler got things he wanted recognition. Hitler gained recognition not only for the Putsch but also for the trial that took place later. His 24 day trial reached the front page on a daily basis. He twisted the trial so even though he still went to prison, he drummed up much support. He made the November Criminals the traitors and made himself look like the "saviour" of the German people. He was such an orator that the way he spoke influenced the judges on their decisions. That is why Hitler was only given 5 years with the chance of parole after just six months. Ludendorff got off free and the rest of the Nazis that had participated were let off with equally gentle sentences but Hitler was sent to prison where he made a book called "Mein Kampf(My struggle)". ...read more.


this made people support Nazis and without it Hitler would be like all the other politicians fighting over who should take care of Germany and would be remained as one of the leaders of a party among many others. But he got all the support he needed. Without the Treaty of Versailles Hitler would not been able to gain the upper hand. Without joining the Nazis, well everything wouldn't have started then. Without the Munich Putsch he wouldn't of learnt the most valuable lesson, he may not have risen up again, Germany may have been more stable and therefore less willing to change and Hitler might not gain any more power. If he had not been an astounding open speaker and a very fascinating personality (combined with shrewd propaganda) the public may have just not listened to him, gave up on him never have rallied around him and just ignore him and without Von Papen's advice he would not have had the opportunity to become a chancellor and seize power in the way he did. All the factors I will rank of equally importance because they had a part they are all interconnected, without one the other could not happen. It would greatly delayed Hitler's rise to power. ...read more.
