The primary reasons for the Nazi's rise to power
The first 200 words of this essay...
After the defeat of Germany in 1918 and with the creation of the Weimar Republic, Germany entered a new era that would be a time of uncertainty, doubt, question and struggle. It was during this time that an entirely new movement would arise and eventually take hold of power in Germany. This new movement was called Nazism. In the town of Northeim there were several reasons for the ability of this political party to gain the needed support to seize complete control. They are not numerous but are wholly inter-related and after Nazism had secured itself, life in Northeim completely changed.
The primary reason for Nazi's rise to power was the economic situation in Northeim during the years of 1929-1933. With the collapse of the stock market in America in 1929, economies around the world, including that in Northeim were affected. From that year on, depression continued to affect the town of Northeim. During these years, 17 bankruptcies occurred and unemployment rates rose steadily. In 1930, there were under 300 people receiving unemployment aid. That number rose to approximately 700 by 1932 and levelled off to around 550 in 1933. These numbers may not seem extraordinarily high
