does anybody know of any good websites for primary resources for history coursework?Watch
I am trying to start my history coursework for A-level about the reasons for the rise of Hitler. I have three main points which are economy, weimar and propaganda. I have to use both secondary and primary resources and im okay with the secondary because of websites like History Today etc, but really stuggling about where i can find primary resources. Anyone know? Thanks guys xx
When you do your reading you should come across primary sources. Good books to start with are Richard J Evans's trilogy on the Third Reich, Ian Kershaw's Hitler Myth and perhaps even Alan Bullock's Hitler: A Study in Tyranny which are well researched and provided plenty of primary sources. For sites you could try the German national archive depending on your German skills.
I like your structure however don't forgot that your coursework needs to cover a minimum of eighty years so perhaps it might be worth combining Weimar and the economy into one factor and then add another factor. For this you will need to have a look ar at Germany's developments since 1833. I personally would suggest the rise of nationalism which can be tied nicely into propaganda (Have a look at the Sonderweg theory which gives more insight into this and thus perhaps allows you to cover the necessary hundred years)
