Hitler rise to power

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Aditya Agarwal HISTORY To what extent was the rise to power of one right wing, single party ruler, the result of previous political problems? There was no sole cause for Hitler's rise to power. There were two. The political and economic chaos of the 1920's and the 1930's joined forces with German culture that enabled Hitler to rise to power. Hitler's rise to power was mainly through a legal change in the political system of Germany. Many political problems further aggregated the rise of Hitler to the post of a Chancellor in 1933 and then his rise to be the leader or the Fuhrerprinzip of Germany. Hitler learned from his past experiences of taking charge and trying to rise to power by the Munich Putsch after which he was arrested and then after a few years he started fresh with new ideas and strategies that favoured him. ...read more.

He planned to do this by having a Third Reich. The Great depression in 1929 stopped the flow of the triangular method of payment. This stopped the loans that Germany received and there was mass unemployment and no capital left for expansion due to the Wall Street Crash. This proved to be good news for Germany as Hitler's Nazi party rose in the Reichstag with a greater occupancy of seats. In 1932 Hitler was offered to join a coalition, but refused, as his demands to be in overall power, was turned down. This offer of the Weimar was made by President Hindenburg as he now feared the Nazis and in particular Hitler who was rising to power. Hitler was later made Chancellor in 1933 when Hindenburg was advised by Papen to make Hitler Chancellor so his enemy Schleicher would not take over the Chancellorship. ...read more.

Conclusion

He drew great support of the masses as it is seen that his seats rose form 32 1924 to 107 in 1930 which helped him become Chancellor. Hitler's rise was helped along vastly by the weak Weimar government and the groups surrounded it such as the conservative elite's. But was not the only factor to his rise, his use of aggressive and persuasive propaganda with the backup of violence brainwashed many people into believing that Hitler was the only option for Germany to follow. The main cause that influenced Hitler's rise was the legal change which proved as a catalyst in the rise to power. His rise was greatly influenced by the misuse of emergency powers by Hindenburg, his hatred towards the conservative right, his growing support as he targeted the masses and controlled the hearts and minds of the people through his various tools of propaganda. ...read more.
