This ideology attracted support from nationalists and the many demobilized soldiers in Germany. One of the first steps in establishing centralized Nazi control in Germany is the elimination of state governments. Without the support of Hitler, who claimed full power, von Papen could not form a government, forcing Hindenburg to call another election in November of the same year in which the Nazis lost 34 seats. Adolf Hitler was elected to the office of Chancellor Head of Government in 1933, assuming the role on the 30th day of January. Hitler was a young figure in German politics, unconventional, different, dynamic, and he promised a prouder future for Germans than the old generals could. In the end, though, it was a desperate people, searching for hope, guidance, and most of all, strong leadership, who enabled Hitler to reach the height of power with which he could implement his policies, and turn his ideals into reality. After years of continuous campaigning they were running short of money.
In addition, they needed a strong leader who would bring the catastrophically situation back into the right track, this man was Hitler. As a result of this, the amount of people in poverty increased sharply. Hermann Goering, a leading Nazi, becomes minister-president of Prussia, the largest German state. Hindenburg died in August 1934 and Hitler was proclaimed Führer of the German Reich, head of state and commander of the armed forces, giving him dictatorial power over the country. So the Weimar falling came when the Wall Street crash struck in October 1929. This was a particular threat, as a fear of Communism began to develop throughout Germany, but luckily for the Nazis, Hitler was viewed as the lesser of the two evils. Hitler would make sure they chose right.
Bismarck, Frederick the Great, the Kaiser, had not seen this. Papen worked behind the scenes against Schleicher, who soon found out. There are four main reasons as to why this happened, and they are as follows: the Weimar government's weaknesses; his own leadership skills and the Nazis tactics; the Great Depression; and political manoeuvring between von Schleicher and von Papen. The conservative elite and the Nazi Party had a common enemy — the political left. One factor to explain why Hitler became Chancellor was the Depression. Two days later both countries declared war on Germany, launching.
The reparations it demanded were instrumental in the destruction of the German economy. This made it possible for him to control the judiciary, executive and legislative. After the death of the German president Hindenburg, Hitler declares himself the Fuhrer, or the supreme ruler combining the powers of the President and the Chancellor. Hidenburg appointed Von Papen as chancellor on 4th December 1932. As well as popularity, backstairs intrigue and the short-sightedness of those in power enabled Hitler to become Chancellor.
The parties could not agree on key policies and Müller struggled to get support for legislation. Not only this, but in a government report at roughly the same time, it was announced that the Army was not strong enough to fight off both the Communists, a growing threat, and the Nazis, at the same time. Though his popularity had increased, especially in southern Germany, in early 1932 Hitler was still a fringe politician. It took him ten years to come from the wilderness, that is pretty remarkable that in such a short time he could turn around and fight back for power from being weakened after the Putsch. As a result, wages fell by 39% from 1929 to 1932. It has to be taken into account, Hitler took part in the Music Ball Putch, but failed, which helped him to create more instability. Everyone could remember the years of hyper-inflation, when France and Belgium invaded the Ruhr, halting the better part of German industry.
This set a precedent of governing by presidential decree and moved the Republic away from parliamentary democracy. Thirdly, a reason that Hitler became Chancellor in 1933 was because of the Great Depression. First of all, to be the most powerful party in the Reichstag with 37% of the votes in 1932, he promised solutions to the everyday problems. He had a lot of propaganda which he had trapped onto people as he was a very good manipulator. In July 1932 the Nazis, aided by press barons, won 230 seats and became the largest party in the Reichstag. Hitler got too much vote because of many reasons. He was duly caught and convicted.
Adolf never used any other surname. They managed to secure 18. The argument is based on Hitler being actually a weak dictator that wasn't able to unite Germany as a new Fuhrer should had, also he didn't create the basis of a strong empire. Following World War I, the Weimar Republic emerged from the German Revolution in November 1918. Hitler lost the election, with 36. The weakness of the Weimar also encouraged the public to vote for extremists parties, like the Nazis, in the hope that they would be the lesser of evils.
They were now by far the largest party. He was a very influential figure for the Nazis and in November 1923 he attempted an overthrow of the Weimar Government. July 20, 1933 Adolf Hitler signs concordat agreement with the Catholic Church A treaty between the German government and the Vatican the highest authority in the Roman Catholic church guarantees Catholics the freedom of private religious practice, but dissolves Catholic political and trade union organizations. The Vatican which had the status of a sovereign state was the first state to recognize formally the legitimacy of Adolf Hitler's government. He promised to be for free enterprise and keep down Communism and the trade union movements. German remilitarization and state-sanctioned anti-Semitism drew criticism from abroad, but the foreign powers failed to stem the rise of Nazi Germany.
Conservative members of the former aristocratic ruling class desired an end to the republic and a return to an authoritarian government that would restore Germany to glory and bring back their old privileges. Around noon on January 30th, Hitler was sworn in. In 1929 a co- ordinating body was set u … p. After a year of drifting, he found direction as a German soldier in , and was decorated for his bravery on the battlefield. Incidentally Hitler later joined the party, became the leader, and renamed it The National Socialist German Workers Party. It was a disastrous misjudgement. Whilst Goebbels played the primary role in creating Nazi Propaganda and the Hitler myth, Dietrich was also key in spreading the Nazi ideology through publications and newspapers from an early stage.
