Hitler Rises to Power - Lesson Summary

Adolf Hitler was born in 1889 in an Austrian village and was raised by an over protective mother and a disciplinarian father.

He wanted to be a painter and enrolled in the German army in 1913 and won medals for his bravery in WWI. Germany after WWI elected a new Government called the Weimar Republic and signed the Versailles Peace Treaty in 1919. Many Germans, especially war heroes like Hitler were upset with this. Citizens and heroes became anti-government. 

In 1919 Hitler got selected as the German Workers' Party leader owing to his excellent oratory skills, his devotion to German pride and his growing anti-Jewish sentiments two years later.

Hitler renamed the German Worker’s Party, as the National Socialist German Workers Party and used different propaganda to reach out to the German people. Hitler’s powerful speeches and grand rallies were reinforced through colourful posters and flyers. The waving red flags further added to the aggressive energy of Nazi parades.  

When Hitler got arrested after a failed coup to take over the Weimar in 1923, he wrote his famous autobiography “Mein Kampf” or my struggle.

In the 1930 and 1932 election the Nazi Party got a majority of the seats in the Reichstag. The Weimar Republic fell and was replaced with Hitler’s Third Reich government. On 30th January 1933 Adolf Hitler was appointed chancellor of Germany.
