    Here's a plan I made using a format posted in the previous year's thread. I've added my own notes to it. It's similar to the question you're asking and outlines all the social/political tensions that existed throughout the war.

    Hi

    For that question you literally follow a simple structure - the question is quite generous in actually giving you a recommended structure to follow;

    1) political impact
    2) social impact
    3) economic impact

    I don't really know this topic very well because I'm not revising the second Reich so can't give you much help on content

    For culture though just talk about the cultural developments and the political tensions that it caused
    Thanks 😊

    so for threats to the weimar republic from the constitution:

    Article 48 let the president rule by decree, which demonstrated a threatto the republic as it provided the president with a lot of power over Germany. . This was a significant threat as it limited the democratic side of therepublic as anyone who could persuade the president could essentially takecontrol of the republic.

    Another weakness of the constitution itself wasthe voting system it used to elect members of the Reichstag. Proportional representation meantthat it was increasingly difficult for a single party to gain a majority in theReichstag. i.e. for 1 seat they needed 60,000 votes

    , article 54 of theWeimar constitution, allowed the judiciary to maintain their independence. Thisprivilege was often misused to undermine the Republic. It was the judiciary’smisinterpretation of the constitution that posed a threat to the republic, asjudges were more lenient towards those who tried to destroy the new democracy,i.e. right wing violence. for example with hitler and the munich putsch

    All depends on what the given factor is (if its a factor question) as theres so much to write about! My factors personally are

    -threats from right
    -threats from left
    -treaty of versailles ( which i guess you could argue is legacy from ww1)
    - constitution

    But really you can do any points as long as you can back it up and link it directly to the question!!

    What different types of questions could be asked about the opposition during ww2?
    I think the main question will be how serious opposition was

    They may ask you to assess which was the most serious opposition ie "to what extent do you agree that the church provided the most serious opposition to the Nazi regime from 1939-1945?"

    What are the chances of two topics being put together?
    For example the second reich and the Weimar Republic
    Or
    The Weimar Republic and the nazis

    That'd be a first so I doubt it! As it's the last exam of this cycle they will more than likely keep it the same as previous years, so have questions on Weimar & Nazi's etc as separate topics ^_^

    Take the different groups of opposition and talk about them in order of which was the greatest threat (unless it gives you a stated factor, then start with that) and work your way down. For me I would talk about;

    1) elite/military
    2) church
    3) left
    4) youth
