Why did attempts at disarmament between the wars fail?
What were the characteristics of totalitarianism as practiced between the wars?What factors kept the Labour Party from establishing and maintaining control over the government?Which was more important for Adolf Hitler's rise to power: his policy goals or the symbolism of the Nazi Party? Why were extremist political parties more successful during the inter-war years than they had been before World War One?Pensioners all over Germany were told that both the amounts and the buying power of their monthly checks would remain stable.Using a deadlock among the partners in the "Grand Coalition" as an excuse, Center party politician and Reich Chancellor Heinrich Bruening induced the aging Reich President, World War I Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg, to dissolve the parliament in July 1930 and schedule new elections for September 1930.As a result of the election, a "Grand Coalition" of Germany's Social Democratic, Catholic Center, German Democratic, and German People's parties governed Weimar Germany into the first six months of the economic downturn. The worldwide economic depression had hit the country hard, and millions of people were out of work.The unemployed were joined by millions of others who linked the Depression to Germany's national humiliation after defeat in World War 1.Many Germans perceived the parliamentary government coalition as weak and unable to alleviate the economic crisis.Widespread economic misery, fear, and perception of worse times to come, as well as anger and impatience with the apparent failure of the government to manage the crisis, offered fertile ground for the rise of Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party.Before the onset of the Great Depression in Germany in 1929–1930, the National Socialist German Workers' Party (or Nazi Party for short) was a small party on the radical right of the German political spectrum.In the (parliament) elections of May 2, 1928, the Nazis received only 2.6 percent of the national vote, a proportionate decline from 1924, when the Nazis received 3 percent of the vote.
