Germans – by blood) Then: 1929 – Nazis had their cause, the great depression capitalized on this by furious, neverending campaigning (headed by Goebbels) that both showed that the Nazis were tireless in promoting their goals (contrast to Weimar government which just couldn’t seem to do anything at the moment, economy in freefall) and also kept Nazis always in the minds of the people also got funds (Goebbels, smartypants) from charging for the propaganda events, joining them with dances or concerts – gave them tons of funding for later Hugenberg (1930) of the DNVP decides to join forces with the Nazis and let them use his newspress abilities to spread their “joint” anti-government doctrines Much of what the parties were preaching was crap, libels suits every other second, so their lies weren’t treated as huge issues – what could you trust? Hitler run off with Hindenberg – shows how close they are to their goals, his “rockstar” campaigning, Deutschlandflug – made Hitler the anti-system candidate, solidified Nazis as not crazy periphery party Northeim example: Nazis went in and saw who the most influential person was (bookseller) and recruited him to Nazi-ism, made them more socially acceptable SA vs. Red Guard – height of violence between the two, Nazis played it off as wounded victims knew how to control image Goebbels’ propaganda was good because he also targeted certain types of people – message of are you unhappy with government? Well Nazis have never been in government and have never disappointed you, etc… Then: 1933 – Backdoor politics with Schleicher, Hitler is appointed chancellor, SA then by emergency decree against Bolsheviks/Communists/etc. is the police and all hell breaks loose. Conclusion: The post-WWII economic and political instability, when capitalized upon by Nazi propaganda and outright ruthlessness, led to both the downfall of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Hitler and Nazi power in Germany.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
