Hello, I'm currently struggling with finding Historians, and sources connected to said Historians, with opposing views regarding Hitler's rise to power. For my History Coursework, under Eduqas, the question I am answering is as follows "Historians have disagreed about the weaknesses of the Weimar Republic and its*influence upon Hitler’s rise to power in the early 1930s. What is your view about*the issue?"
I have found 13 different Historian interpretations so far, yet none of them seem to differ, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Many just focus on multiple factors rather than one specific one, eg: Hitler’s Personality, Weimar Weakness, Treaty of Versailles, The Great Depression, ext

Well, is the Great Depression a weakness of Weimar? Ditto Hitler's personality? What were Weimar's weaknesses? Which ones were most influential on Hitler's rise to power? Which historians emphasise a particular factor/s over others?

Well regarding the Great Depression I'd say no, as well as Hitler's personality - although such could have been influenced by Weimar weaknesses. The problem is, most historians mention all of the points without a singular prevalent view, so even though there is an argument between these points, there's no contrasting argument between interpretations.

You therefore have a more subtle argument than a simple "Was A the most important factor in XXX". It appears to be a matter of giving more weight to some elements over others.
