Hi there, I think I do the exact same paper as you! Germany and West Germany?

It all depends on the question to be extremely honest as you’ll have different factors and comparison Qs can be different

Change or continuity
Causation - did two things happen for the same reason in different periods

It’s hard to explain without a Q, so send me one that you’re struggling with and maybe I can help more?

To what extent were the cultural developments of the Weimar years suppressed by the Nazi regime?

I understand the question but I don't know how much of each topic to include and whether they go in the same paragraph or different.

You’re in luck! I planned this a few weeks back. I found it a bit difficult at first but I believe I split it into different areas of Culture:

Overall focus is on freedom of expression and you are looking at how much it was suppressed in the following areas:

1. Art and Literature (lots of suppression/change)
2. Architecture (area that saw little suppression/change)
3. Music and Cabaret (controversial area - saw lots of suppression/change too)

I would talk about both Weimar and Nazi in each paragraph - how things were and how and why they changed under Nazi. I would then end with a link to the Q about how big or small the change was. Repeat this x3 and then conclude with to what extent culture were suppressed on the whole and you might come to judgment of which area saw the most suppression and which saw the least and reasons for that. Consider the aims of the Nazis and Weimar too!

Hope this helps you! All the best.
