Factors that contributed to Hitler's rise in power in 1933

    For a report. I have economic factors,weaknesses of the Weimar Goverment, Hitlers oratory skills and use of propaganda and their appealing policies but what else is there?

    The Reichstag Fire on 28th Feb 1933 - gave Hitler & the Nazis a chance to grab more power and also blame the Communists (it was a Communist, a Dutch man but I can't remember his name) through the Reichstag Fire Decree of 29th February 1933 (Hitler persuaded President Hindenburg to use his emergency powers under Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution) and the Terror Elections in March when the Nazis used intimidation to raise their proportion of the vote (which turned out to be 43.91%) and then they passed the Enabling Act (23rd March 1933) so they did not need the Reichstag.

    (I'll add more to this later - have to work now.)
