    Imagine if Edexcel was watching this post and saw that we predicted Nazi consolidation and then decided to change it last minute xD

    My teacher still hasn't marked a single source question we have given him... Like, perhaps he just forgot to give them back because he's given other classes theirs back?

    Anyway, I don't even want to do more questions now in case my method is flawed and get used to the wrong way of answering things. Smh.

    You could try asking him to give it back and see if he's marked it.

    I would plan essays and revise content in the mean time. How long before you break up?

    Sounds sensible. Personally I just plan and don't write essays but I wouldn't say it works for everyone! I'm just lazy haha.

    Yeah same I'm real lazy when it comes to essays too. But I feel that planning plan B won't be enough because sometimes I find it that plans just down go the way I plan them to sadly haha

    I write essays xD

    I figured planning them is the easy part. An A* plan would be the same as a B plan!

    Writing the actual essay is what makes the difference xD

    My key points are:

    • Terror and violence:
    - Emergency decree laws, 28th Feb 1933
    - SA police brought in (50,000) in Prussia on 23rd Feb 1933
    - Dachau concentration camp set up 20th March 1933
    - 150,000-200,000 political prisoners arrested in 1933
    - March elections and Enabling Law vote contested with SA intimidation

    • Pragmatism:
    - Speech to Reichstag committing to conservative values, 1st Feb 1933
    - International Labour Day celebrated, 1st May 1933 to please workers before TUs shut down next day
    - Concordat with Papacy, 20th July 1933 meant church reduced its political influence but not religious influence - any further oppression of churches would bring opposition
    - Law for the Restoration of the Professional Civil Service, 7th April 1933 cut only 5% of civil servants - Hitler needed them to co-operate so the state could function


    • Key support:
    - Hindenburg happy to pass emergency decree laws
    - Potsdam Day impresses Hindenburg and Kaiser's son
    - Elites happy for Hitler to consolidate power so a compliant mass movement could be taken advantage of at a later date when Hitler would be deposed and replaced by an authoritarian alternative

    • Veneer of legality:
    - Emergency decree laws cement in law the legal discrimination of KPD members
    - March elections 'prove' Nazis to rise in popularity - from 33.1% to 43.5% November 1932 to March 1933
    - All other parties legally banned by 14th July 1933.


    I suppose you could mention Night of the Long Knives, but not if the question restricted it to 1933.

    Ah that's fair enough! I've neglected history too much lately. I'm terrible at prioritising.

    Yeah, I mean once you've got the structure nailed it feels like a bit of a time waste by physically writing it instead of brushing up on other key content.

    What would be the key points for this question?

    To what extent do you agree that the war economy lacked the efficiency to meet the demands of total war"?

    Thanks x
