Extracts from this document...


'To what extend did Hitler and the Nazi party have the supported of the German people after 1933?' In 1933, the Nazi party wins the election. Hitler and Nazi party had an ambition to make Germany into world's most powerful country. After 1918, as a consequence of treaty of Versailles and Great Depression German yearned a leader who can make Germany into one and give them hopes. Then a new leader emerges. Adolph Hitler was a innate orator and leader. He introduced the policies that the Weimar government has never shown. Moreover the German people looked eagerly for hopes, and Hitler gradually satisfies theses covet. Apparently he had supported from wide Germans. However, the support can be explained into positive but also negative. The reason from the negative supported included the removal of channels of opposition and Hitler's control over powers coercion and terror. ...read more.


Therefore, I can say after 1918 most of Germans, especially the lower and middle classes were living in an abyss. Hitler was able to capitalize the Weimar's failure into a success. His policy of cautious consolidation was intended to pull Germany through the remainder of the depression and strengthen its trading position and currency. The recovery of the economy after 1933 was projected to a grateful population. Therefore, his policy was more pragmatic considering that Brunning and Schacht only resulted of the measures applied with no outcome. Furthermore his revised foreign policy was compared with the much dogmatic and slower developments made by times of Stresemann and received applause for remilitarizing the Rhineland in 1936 and for taking over Austria and Czechoslovakia without the need for war.

Perceptions of this success were sharpened because Hitler deliberately offered something unique that would satisfy and attract wide range of classes. ...read more.


Ah the same time, there was always an undercurrent of opposition: Firstly, oppositions from individual priests of the Catholic and Lutheran Churches. They opposed the regime's anti-Christian and racial policies though there was no unity among Protestants. Secondly, the young individual's opposition of segregation of Jews. Resistance groups were found in Munich, Augsburg and Berlin. Thirdly, the oppositions from the left wing including Social Democrats, Communists and trade unionist because Nazi's ideology was against them. Lastly, oppositions from the traditional conservative groups. The opposition took a various forms, ranging from everyday dissent and grumbling and political resistance. However, at no stage, the Nazi regime ever seriously threatened and was ultimately destroyed by military defeat. In conclusion, although there were several resistance and groups whom opposed Nazi and Hitler, it was insignificant. In fact the Hitler and Nazi's appeal had an enormous impact, with gradually led to Germany's revival. Therefore I believe excluding subtle population, most of German advocated his policy and government. ...read more.
