The Right Wing in 1930s Germany

4 April 2015
This is a study of how German nationalism and economic disaster ultimately led to the rise of Hitler.

This essay examines the circumstances behind Hitler’s rise to power. It studies the rise of German nationalism and anti-Semitism, the economic ruin faced after WWI, the bitter way in which Germans held their surrender in WWI, and the unsuitability of the ultra-democratic Weimar Republic in facing these problems.
Although Hitler never won a full majority in a free election , the Nazis had secured a large share of the electorate by the beginning of the 1930s. This happened despite widespread violence on the part of the SA, anti-Semitic and anti-Slav policies, and being the most right wing political party in Germany. Social and economic problems were blamed on party politics and inept politicians; extremists offered, if little else, strength and political efficiency.
