What was the Significance of the Difficulties Faced by the Weimar Governments in Dealing with the Problems of the Depression in Explaining Increased Support for the Nazi Party? ESSAY The Wall Street Crash of 1929 brought a profound end to the Stresemann years and set Germany into a deep Depression, which led to the Weimar Government ultimately failing and handing Hitler dictatorship with ease. With the Depression came unemployment, starvation, homelessness and instability both socially and politically. The Weimar Government; celebrating in a successful golden period of minimum unemployment, a new Reichmark currency, high exports and production levels and finally mutual foreign relations with the Allies was instantaneously plunged into a huge crisis of responding to the Depression in such a way as to recover Germany again. However, there was no unilateral view on how to tackle the Depression and so the Weimar Governments between the years of 1928 and 1933 went through 4 different Chancellors before Hitler and his Nazi Party finally took over in January 1933 with public support.
The 1929 Great Depression in the States had a global impact, and most prominently on Germany. Such were the conditions that enabled Hitler to rise to power - Germany was struggling so much there was no real leader at that time, and there was a struggle for that role. In the times of the Great Depression, the Nazi
But Germans blamed it for signing the Versailles treaty and for hunger and unemployment. Hitler set up a fascist style party called the Nazi party. Hitler wanted to tear up the Versailles treaty and unite all Germans so they could form a great German empire. He blamed the Jews and the communists for Germany’s troubles and wanted to destroy them. When the Great Depression 1929 forced many factories to close, desperate Germans voted for the Nazi party.
Third, wherever Germany in Eastern Europe, specialized units called Einsatzgruppen were created to murder Jews and political opponents in mass shootings. Finally, Jews and Romani were ordered to be live in overcrowded ghettos, there they were then transported by freight train to extermination camps. Extermination camps were camps that were built by Nazi Germany, during the World War II, that were designed to kill millions of people by gassing and extreme work under terrible living conditions. The Nazis were not alone in this effort. Parish churches and the Interior Ministry supported the genocide by presenting birth records showing who was Jewish; the Post Office delivered the deportation and denaturalization orders; the Finance Ministry took away Jewish property; German businesses fired Jewish workers and took away stock that belonged to the Jews.
Tsarina Alexandra was influenced by Gregori Rasputin, an unpopular and scruffy “holy” man, who was supposedly controlling her son’s haemophilia condition. Nicholas’s decisions at the Eastern Front caused the country's military failures; by 1917 over 1,300,000 men had been killed in battle, 4,200,000 wounded and 2,417,000 had been captured by the enemy. First World War had a disastrous impact on the Russian economy; food was in short supply and this led to rising prices. By January 1917 the price of commodities in Petrograd had increased by six times. In an attempt to increase their wages, industrial workers went on strike.
It threatened the Foundations of the socialist state. Shostakovich had the courage to express in his music the misery of the people by means of persecution from a hard and cruel era of Stalinism. The film feautures folk music and Russian traditionalism and shows man kinds vulgarity or cruder impulses. The work feautures a rebellious women of an arranged marriage who is childless and lonely who engages in passionate love with Sergei the new servant.

Germany was in major debt and this created depleted economic conditions for business and industries. Hitler promised Germany to restore the profits of small businesses and the value of savings, to end the communist threat, employment and the most appealing promise was to make Germany proud again. Another factor which contributed in Hitlers rise to power was social conditions. After Germany's loss of World War I, Britain, France and USA discussed peace terms in Versailles, France. Germany was blamed for the war and harsh repercussions were listed for the German people.
'Broken Glass' is a play set in the 1920s in America during the Great Depression, a time of hardship for many citizens especially Jews. Miller's play revolves around the dissolution of the marriage of a Jewish couple, Sylvia and Phillip Gellburg, and Sylvia's sudden physical disability of paralysis below the waist. The Great Depression and the Wall Street Crash caused much tension for all citizens and were proof of how such an event as the Holocaust on the other side of the world could affect it as a whole. Scene Four between Gellburg and Case is a key example with relevance to the social and political issues that were so important at the time and give a real insight into their relationship and the character of Gellburg. The scene is introduced with Case leaving and the first thing that Gellburg says in reply to his statement of departure is: "I'm sorry, I got caught in traffic over in Crown Heights."
Consumption skyrocketed as Americans relished in the heyday of western capitalism. The environment that emerged from this climate helped to bring about an “orgy of speculation” sending Americans scrambling for easy profits in the bull market of the 1920s. However through excessive leveraging, borrowing on margin, and a restrictive economic policy, the boom soon turned to bust. The belief that high price levels could be maintained indefinitely was proved drastically wrong in what will forever be remembered as one of the worst economic disasters in the annals of American History. What was set in motion in late October 1929 can be traced back to the brewing market conditions and economic environment of the very decade it which the crash took place.
Before we can explore causes, we first need to define what we mean by The Great Depression The Great Depression was a global economic crisis that may have been triggered by political decisions (war reparations post-World War I), protectionism (Congressional tariffs on European goods) or by speculation .Worldwide, there was increased unemployment, decreased government revenue, a drop in international trade. Its kickoff in the U.S. economy was “Black Thursday," October 24, 1929. That's when 12.9 million shares of stock were sold in one day. It was triple the usual amount. At the height of the Great Depression in 1933, more than a quarter of the US labor force was unemployed.
