2) Using some of the causes in the list explain how it contributed to Hitler's rise to power. As we know, not only one cause helped Hitler to raise power, but a combination of many. Some of them long-term; The Treaty of Versailles, Munich Putsch (1923), Hitler's character and others short-term causes; The Enabling Law (1933), The decision by Papen and Hindenburg to appoint him as Chancellor in 1933, but others are a combination of both such the economic depression. The causes which rose to power Hitler are linked in a complex web, some causes are the consequence of other, and others interact with each other leading to another cause. In some way, the combinations of all of them as a whole made contributed to Hitler becoming the Third Reich. The Treaty of Versailles, was the first cause to happen, it was a long-term cause.

This caused a couple of years later, Hitler with the Nazi rose up against the government; this was called as the Munich Putsch. They failed to gain control but this wasn't the end of the party, but the opposite. This long-term cause made Nazi party famous all over Germany, and that was a step nearer to the Reichstag.

Despite all this it would have to be said that it took a man with extraordinary qualities to achieve all of this. Thanks to his amazingly charismatic character, he had the cold blooded strength to carry out his aims and take the responsibility of Germany. During this period, Hitler brainwashed and made people to think as he did with his outstanding oratory skills. These qualities were very important to Hitler's rise. He was very exigent and strong in his leadership, he had a straight forward thinking mind and that helped him because he didn't get distracted from the job at any moment. Speeches were his strong point, were he knew exactly how to affect the deep feelings of German people and that was the key to make people listen to him, and that led in an increase number of supporters. A natural talented person was needed to take on such an enormous task. In conclusion, I can say that the series of events were interacted one another, like a pile of wood and a match, separate could look insignificant but together could mean a total different thing. ...read more.
