    Sorry, just one more question. Last year, there was a question about the war economy under the life in wartime Germany section. Would it be likely that another question from that section would come up this year? Something about the Final Solution or civilian morale? I really want to just revise the rise of the Nazis and the whole Weimar section. Along with the WW1 Controversy

    The war economy is less likely to come up but the rest of the unit might

    Anybody think holocaust might come up?

    _____________

    And in a holocaust essay is it more sensible to argue the holocaust happened because of the Fuhrer or the chaotic state?
    Holocaust could come up. Hasn't for a while.

    I personally believe the war was ultimately responsible. I gave my reasoning a couple of pages back.

    Is Weimar likely to come up this year? I'm revising Nazi Germany now but I'm not too sure which to look over, the Kaiserreich or Weimar?

    Also, is it possible to do the WW1 controversy without revising the Kaiserreich?
    Weimar came up last year in the form of an evaluation of its "democratic experiment". As such, it is likely that a more specific and less thematic Weimar question could arise, although I predict Nazi consolidation and German revolution personally.

    That section again could come up. It is more likely to be about morale and opposition than the economy.

    I know why people say the war i really do because potentially without it, the holocaust would have been doubtful. am i allowed to argue for the fuhrer's responsibility?

    Of course you're allowed! History has no "right answers".

    The Führer's responsibility is also convincing. Different people argue for:

    • War and its circumstances
    • Hitler himself
    • State structure
    • the German people's collective responsibility

    Yes okay good! see the arguments i have are

    • Fuhrer
    • Other nazi leaders
    • War
    • German people
    • Polycratic/chaotic state
    • improve the economy

    And even though the war is a good argument i would argue that the radical change of plans for jews during the war was also to impress the Fuhrer himself. The fact that they wanted rid of them quickly, the nazis probably saw the death camps as an incentive to impress hitler? War was obviously influential for opting to kill rather than use slave labour but with the Nazi's experience in sporadic killing of "undesirables", they may have even managed it without an outbreak

    True. All possible arguments. Personally I would prefer a Nazi consolidation question though.

    Is that like "why and how the nazis came into power"? (Hitler becoming chancellor)

    Wall street crash
    Policy of legality
    Violence/terror
    Only option left for Hindenburg
    ?

    OR

    Before hitler actually comes into power?

    Sorry i forget what consolidating means😰

    Thanks, I've gone over Nazi consolidation and rise to power. Doing Weimar Golden Years now and I'll go through the German Revolution tomorrow. I'll have to take a break from History revision until the 1st June due to exams but I've just remembered the exam is actually on the 8th not the 4th, mixed it up with another exam, so I feel better now.

    You need to know Weimar to fully grasp Nazi Germany...

    Also, Weimar is easy to learn anyway.
