I need to access the significance, however, all my points are blending into one.
- The rise of the Nazis
- Unemployment
- The economy, and how effected the people

So when you get this sort of question you try to identify what its asking you and then you need to have a plan about how you can best answer it.

They key word here is significance then depression and then Germany

Its important to understand how the questions works and to an extent what they want.

Any answer will do as long as it answers the question, which is always your #1 target


So the event is the depression. You need a potted history and understanding of that for notes.

Then you need to think cause and effect.

Depression mean x events happened. youve identified some. so along the right lines there.

You need to pick 4-6 events or signficant factors for Germany and for this I wouldnt just look at short term effects, but you might also want to look at longer lasting impact, such as the war or german attitudes to the economy.

You could also consider as sort of what if scenario of what might have happened if it had not taken place i.e it helped bring about the fall of weimar. is that important?

Once youve gone through those, then you start an evaluation and discuss significance and talk about how some things might have happened anyway or where you feel it really was important in dictating the future direction of the country. I would give more strength to those issues as being significant than just unemployment. Mainly because on a world stage at least the Nazis led to WW2.


Anyway when youve done your research and identified your significant factors you can plan your essay.


1. Introduction- very short and you cna merge it into 2.
2. The depression
3. Methodology and the way you will measure significance. this si where you make the essay your own and show them you understand the question
4. 4-6 angles of significance- what happened and why was it significant?
5. Evaluation exploring the question, cause and effect . You may also want to have a mini paragraph in on the counter argument i.e areas where it wasnt significant or the idea that there were other factors or the idea some things were inevitable.
6. Small conclusion.

Thats how I would do it. You now need to read on the depression and decide what you feel were the consequences.
