    Highly Unlikely, but possible. It won't really matter if it does though because you'd have already revised it!

    Hey, I have a really probably dumb question, but can the material covered in the controversies come up in the a question? I was just going to do the WW1 controversy (I mean, I kind of know the other one but... yeah) because it's so much smaller but a friend has told me that the material can come up in the a and I'm just like GEE THANKS xD
    Chapter 9 does link into some of the stuff from the Hitler controversy..but they won't ask you popularity stuff in section A and for WW1, they wont ask you causes of WW1 in section A..just impacts of WW1

    Btw i've only done ww1 controversy and a lot of people here have only done that too..so i'm guessing its not that bad

    I've done 2, 4, 7, 8 and 9. No questions have come up on 33-39 so I revised that quite a bit. e.g Consolidation of Nazi power, was it legal?

    After the failure at Leningrad and Stalingrad the Germans knew they were staring to lose the war. Many people think that the Final Solution was a 'might as well' thing. The Nazis hated the Jews, and they thought they needed to do all they could to destroy them before the Allies reached Berlin.

    I'm doing the WW1 part B, so I actually didn't realise there were two choices until now. If the other part B is on 33-39 then I don't think you have a problem.

    hang on though, the Wannsee conference was held in 1942 where they agreed on the final solution. The Battle of Stalingrad was in 1943. So the final solution was decided before?

    Well maybe not Stalingrad. I'm just saying that Germany were aiming for a Blitzkrieg war, which worked until 42 when they were stopped at Leningrad and Moscow. They knew the Russians were unrelenting 'every 10 Russians for 1 German will ensure victory' and that they would never win a war of attrition, particularly now the US had got involved.
    I just think they knew they were fighting a losing battle so decided to try and get rid of the Jews to achieve at least some 'success'.

    Ok so lets say a question about the final solution came up and how it evolved. So for example "How far do you agree the chaotic nature of the regime was the main reason for the final solution?"

    So your main points would be-

    Chaotic nature
    - Invasion of Russia 1941 signaled racial war due to Einsatzgruppen systematic massacre of jews
    - they needed to decide how to deal with the 'jewish question'
    - cumulative radicalisation led to the development of the final solution
    - Losing battle meant that they wanted to act fast

    Impact of war
    - when expanding into poland they dealt with an extra 3M Jews
    - put them into ghettos
    -however while fighting on the eastern front they were put under heavy economic strain
    - couldnt afford to feed the ghettos
    -madagascar was impractical, cant send 11M Jews to an island
    -therefore the final solution developed

    Hitlers impact
    - anti Semitic from the beginning
    - evidence in mein kampf
    -gradually built up to extermination of Jews
    - took a leading role in racial policy
    -1933 Jews removed from civil service
    -1935 Nuremberg laws
    -1938 decree to close all Jewish businesses

    thats all i can think of

    Need serious help on stressman golden years? What would be your main points to make if question were to come up
    How'd you mean? If a question on the Golden years came up it would probably be like "To what extent was the Weimar republic successful in the years 1924-29?" well thats probably too broad but anyway

    Political stability
    -No Putsch attempts or assassinations
    -Mullers grand coalition consisted of the left right and centre
    -after 1928 hindenburg allowed an SPD chancellor despite hostility towards socialism
    Economic successes
    -IG Farben became the largest chemical exporter in europe
    -Production levels rose to that of 1913 and National income 12% higher
    -Exports increased by 40%
    -Germany recieved 25.5bn marks in foreign loans
    -wages increased every year
    -unemployment and inflation remained fairly low

    political instability
    -luthers govt collapsed over a trivial matter which was the appearance of the German flag
    - 7 governments from 1923-29
    -governments often had different political goals for example, the centre right and right wing agreed on domestic policies and not foreign policies and the centre right and left agreed on foreign policies not domestic policies.
    - also although support for extremist groups reduced, 1/4 of the population still voted for them
    -until 1928 hindenburg refused to work with the SPD and insisted the DNVP were included in coalitions.

    Economic failures
    -Agricultural sector remained sluggish
    -unemployment still at 1.3M and climbed before 1929
    -Germany was dependent on US loans
    -Did not perform as well as GB and France
    -Social tensions between workers and businesses

    then talk about foreign policy
    locarno pact
    dawes and young plan
    ruhr crisis
    germany admitted into league of nations

    and weimar culture was more liberal and tolerant.

    Need serious help on stressman golden years? What would be your main points to make if question were to come up
    So this could be one of two things:
    1. Was Stresseman successful
    2. We're the years 1924-1929 a golden age

    So for the first one you just ask yourself what stresseman did and whether he was successful at it - on the one hand he never managed to get rid of Versailles, but on the other, his policy of fulfilment meant they got some concessions. Dawes plan 're-integrated' Germany into world politics by improving relations with America, as well as obviously helping to solve the depression and chaos of the previous years (but then, the plan did lead to greater depression later so this is one you can argue either way), he had other achievements too - young plan reduced reparations and got French out if Rhineland earlier, locarno was start in bringing Germany back into politics, as well as getting French out of Rhineland and securing Germany's western borders. Not forgetting the treaty of rapallo/treaty of Berlin which improved relations with Russia.

    For the second you should look at the periods before and after - they were really crappy so made this period look better than it really was. Then look at culture (neue sachlichkeit, Bauhaus movement, escapism) and how it may have flourished but still undermined Weimar, social change (Reich relief law, Reich youth law, serious disability laws, increased spending on housing, BUT women workers were still looked down on and employers were still attacking workers rights), economy (dawes plan helped but it was risky, food prices collapsed, 15% workforce were unemployed in 1928) and then politics (SPD refused coalitions meaning that the most popular party were not in power, DNVP and centre party drifted right after poor election showings, grand coalition broke up after failure to agree on unemployment insurance law, Hindenburg did all he could to run a government through Bruning and keep the SPD out of power, coalitions meant that problems couldn't be dealt with effectively. BUT there wasn't too much extra-parliamentary action so that's good). Um, that's all I got GOOD LUCK xx


    Ohh, forgot foreign policy and league of nations etc - basically, basically Germany wasn't a leper anymore GO STRESSEMAN!!
