Introduction

Why was Hitler able to come to power in Germany by January 1933 By Ashwin Bhoobun In January 1933 Hitler was appointed chancellor by Hindenburg. In this essay I will explain how he was able to then take control of Germany. I will explain this under two sections. In this paragraph I will explain all the factors outside hitless control. I believe that one of the biggest factors for Hitler becoming to power was the Wall Street crash. The Wall Street crash was where the American economy collapsed causing Germany to have to pay back the American loans, leaving them in a poor state. Because of the Wall Street crash, the country suffered tremendously. This means that the people of Germany wanted a new leader, this is the most likely period where an extremist party is likely to be more popular because, the country was very unstable, Hitler was then able to tell the people the problem and just fix it. ...read more.

The next factor was the growth of communism, this was good for Hitler his party believed in communism so if he was a communist party, and there were more communists so he was going to become more popular. The last reason was the failure of the Munich putsch, this was quite important because. Firstly because, it incited him with more aggression towards the government. Another reason was that whilst he was in prison it gave him time to plot how he would take rule and come up with new strategies. Another reason was that it gave him time to write his book 'mein kampf'. The last reason was that it might have given him increased recognition. In this paragraph I will explain hitter's ideas and actions and how they helped him to come to power. Hitler had done several things to help him come to power. The first being setting up the SA, this was Hitler's personal police force. The SA's job was to beat up other members of Hitler's opposing parties and also to intimidate them, this would help Hitler because ...read more.

Conclusion

His next Idea was not really important until he came to power, this was anti-Semitism. This may have helped him a bit because there were always people who hated the Jews so they would have supported him. The next action was his propaganda campaign. This helped him firstly because he would be recognized by more people in a way he was promoting the party. It was also making the Nazi party looked much better, and it would also be addressed to all the different classes of people. In this paragraph I ma going to conclude the essay. I think that the factors outside Hitler's control were as important as Hitler's actions and ideas. I think this because If one of them were not to of happened then he would never been able to come to power. But I think that the most important reason for Hitler coming to power was the Wall Street crash. But if one of any of the events did not happen then he might not have been able to come to power by January 1933. ...read more.
