Wall St. Crash

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

The question is asking me if I agree that the Wall Street Crash was the most important factor in Hitler's rise to power. In this essay I am going to explore the Wall Street Crash's impact along with all the other factors that helped Hitler rise to power. The Wall Street Crash was an incident that occurred in America where all the stock markets crashed. This led to banks reclaiming there loans, which was bad for Germany who's economy was being stabilised by American money.

Conclusion

So Von Papen and Hindenburg took a risk. On 30 January 1933 Hindenburg made Hitler Chancellor. They made a deal to try and control Hitler by having only 3 Nazi's in the cabinet.

From here he could start knocking off obstacles in his way to become Master of Europe and turn Germany into a dictatorship country. Which he succeeded in doing. After examining other factors of Hitler's rise to power I disagree with the statement that the Wall Street Crash was the main reason to Hitler's rise to power because I believe that Hitler was given most of his power through the Political deal. Without the Political deal he would not have gotten through the Reichstag and forced the country into turning to a dictatorship. Sumair Hussain ...read more.
