Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐What part did Hitler play in the Nazi parties rise to power? In this essay, examples will be given when Hitler played a key role in the Nazi parties rise to power, this will also be done for parts in which Hitler didn?t. I will then conclude with my opinion on Hitler?s role in the Nazi parties rise to power. Hitler was a powerful and passionate speaker and nobody underestimated his authority. He was described as very patriotic and Kaiser like. Hitler wanted Germany ?to rise from the ashes? this itself is a very powerful line, which would persuade the Germany public to vote for them. But it did not matter what he said, people would still agree with him and without him, the Nazi parties could have had beliefs that all of the public wanted, but it may have not been enough to persuade the public to vote for them. Members of the Brown Shirts believed Hitler was the solution to their problems, therefore supporting the Nazi parties. ...read more.

Middle

The Treaty of Versailles affected everyone and by using it Hitler targeted all of Germany, another good idea of his. In one of his speeches he said that the Treaty of Versailles had made Germany weak, but he would make them strong again. This definitely persuaded people to vote for the Nazi party and this couldn?t have been done without Hitler. Depression was a serious issue throughout Germany and Hitler used this as an advantage. People became desperate, they were out of work and therefore deprived of a good lifestyle, so they turned to the extreme ideas of Nazis and communists. Hitler said if his party was elected then he would make sure that all the unemployed would find jobs and to put an end to the depression. Because it was such a big issue, it persuaded the German public to vote for Hitler. This was another good idea of Hitler?s. Hitler challenged himself to do different things that people only wished they could do. ...read more.

Conclusion

I think if there wasn?t such fierce fear, then the German public wouldn?t have thought as Hitler as their salvation. In addition to this, without the Great Depression or Wall Street Crash I don?t think the Nazi party would have received as many votes. Hitler based his views and promises on the solutions to the troubles throughout Germany, the party didn?t need Hitler if none of these events had happened. In conclusion, I think Hitler played an important but not vital role in the Nazi parties rise to power because if their was not such a fear of communism or the Great Depression or Wall Street Crash hadn?t have taken place then this would not have enabled him to receive so many votes. But I think Hitler did play an important role because he was a powerful and passionate speaker, members of the Brown Shirts supported him, he thought of the ?Red Scare?, played up to the fear of communism, used the Treaty of Versailles and Depression to his advantage, he ?sold Nazism,? he earnt respect because of his past in the military and his autobiography gained a lot of attention.
