"Why did Adolf Hitler come to power in Germany by 1933?"In 1933, Adolf Hitler, came to power for a number of reasons. I am going to talk on five particular reasons of why he came to power. I will talk about: -· Inflation in 1923 - This is where Germany stopped paying reparations to France.· Depression in 1929 - This is where Businesses started to become bankrupt.· Treaty of Versailles - This is where Germany had to pay reparations of £6600 million of gold and goods for causing the war.· Classes and why people voted for Hitler.· Hitler's book (Mein Kapf), his ideas and how he became such a brilliant speaker.After World War 1, Germany had a much worse situation to come as rapid inflation occurred. The German currency was rapidly becoming worthless. By 1923 people had to carry their wages in wheelbarrows. This might sound like a good thing but the money they carried was only worth a cup of coffee! As money was becoming worthless children could play with blocks of money, which could have been worth a lot before but is so useless now it is used to keep them entertained. As money was of no value anymore, some German people became very poor and starved to death, as they could not afford to live. As this wasn't bad enough Germany had to pay reparations to the Allies and had already lost some of their best coal and iron fields to France under the Treaty of Versailles. Germany eventually stopped paying France for the reparations so they could try and solve their economic crisis but France ordered troops to the Ruhr district of Germany and seized many more coalfields. This act made Germany more desperate to find a solution to their problem. Many Germans became unemployed and extremely poor as prices was rapidly going up. This is where Adolf Hitler comes in. He had invented his own version of Fascism called Nazism; this wasn't what it was cracked up to be! He used all the German government's troubles to win support for his own Nazi Party. In 1923 he thought the time was right to take over government in Germany. He attempted to seize power by a violent uprising (putsch), but it failed and he ended up in prison for 6 months. While he was in prison he wrote a book called Mein Kampf - this means my struggle -. When he came out of prison in 1924 he began to rebuild the Nazi Party. As people were desperate for jobs - money - they joined his party.During the late 1920's businesses (mainly in the USA as the USA was the centre of world economy) had boomed! Unfortunately in 1929 an unfortunate accident happened, the confidence collapsed and the price of New York stock market had crashed and many businesses went bankrupt. German's economy problems became exceptionally worse in the world trade. This meant that Hitler would have people joining his Nazi party so they could get paid and help their family to survive. Thousands of shareholders were ruined and there was a huge increase of unemployment. The amount of trade between USA...
