Chancellor to Dictator
Hitler was blinded in a mustard gas attack. Germany surrendered while Hitler was in hospital and he went into a state of great depression. After the war ended, Hitler's future seemed uncertain.
Hitler attended his first meeting of the German Workers' party, nationalist group as a spy for the German Army. However, he found he agreed with Anton Drexler's German nationalism and anti-Semitism.
The Nazi 1921
People were joining the party just to see Hitler give his speeches, which would leave the audience to do whatever he suggested.
He quickly rose through the ranks and, by 1921, was the leader of the re-named National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi).
The Nazi Growth
With terrible economic conditions and rapid inflation, support for Hitler's party grew. By 1923, the Nazi's had 56,000 members and many more supporters.
Beer Hall Putsch
On 8 and 9 November 1923, Hitler staged the Nazi Beer Hall Putsch. He hoped to force the Bavarian government to work with the Nazis and march together on Berlin. The attempt failed but, although Hitler was tried for treason, the judge gave him a very light sentence.

New York in Bankrupt
The New York economy crashed Nazis and Communists participated on the elections and were well pledged on getting rid of democracy getting around 50 percent of the Reichstag seats, this parties needed also to, along with other parties to consider to negotiate with anti democrats.
The Weimar political parties weren’t able to stop the Nazis rise which made on Germany to establish a stable parliament majority government; successive chancellors instead relied on the president emergency state to govern, while Nazis used terror tactics to govern.
The Nazi's Rival
The Nazi dictatorship continued while the communist was having the priority of destroying social democrats along of clashing with Nazis on the streets which converted them into rivals more than a loyal working class

The Reichstag Fire
Hitler got his Communist opponents arrested after they were caught red-handed with fire-lighting materials. He got rid of the Communists which made him look as a hero of Germany.
The enabling law gave Hitler to pass any law that he wanted without permission from the Reichstag. This enabled him to become dictator. Hitler needed the most votes of the Reichstag for the Enabling Law. He was able to do this after the Reichstag burned down.
The Enabling Law
One of the first laws that Hitler established was to ban 'the formation of new political parties'. This law actually banned other political parties. Hitler smashed all other parties and put their leaders in prison.
Night of the Long Knives
Ernst Rohem was the leader of the SA (Hitler's private army of thugs). They had helped Hitler in the past but they had become an undisciplined group of thugs who wanted to take control. Hitler murdered the leaders of the SA and remained as a Dictator.
