What is significance of the Great Depression in Germany? (40)Watch
geography all the way!
I got given this question for history homework and I need some help with points to write. It’s at Gcse level and I’m in yr11. Thanks!
Hitler's main tactic was to take advantage of the circumstance (He attempted it once before with the Munich putsch when there was hyperinflation) and therefore in the great depression when the severe unemployment occurred he promised to employ them. People were tired of the Weimar republic failing them so they looked towards more radical beliefs. Also, Hitler promised the Great German Reich and to protect the rich from communists, he promised them food and in general a better future. People were angry at the "diktat" or the terms of the treaty and Hitler promised to go against the allies. On the whole, it led Hitler into power he was able to manipulate the circumstance making him Chancellor and then Fuhrer- it also meant that people weren't repelled by a man who talked of war and military tactics, as the Germans were tired of taking a punishment they didn't deserve and therefore took actions. It also inevitably led to a hostile situation with the allies and of course war, the holocaust the treaties like the nazi-soviet pact severe anti-Semitism, but on the other hand Hitler did improve unemployment, people weren't going hungry either, kids were being educated. I think you have to talk both about the negative impacts and positive impacts to have a well-balanced answer. Don't count on it though I did my GCSE'S last year so my knowledge's a little shaky, hope it helps
