In examining great social and cultural changes in the modern West, many specific events come to mind: the Renaissance and the Reformation, the "discovery" of the Americas, industrialization, and World War Two. One such event, often overlooked, is the "Great War", 1914-1918. Like every people affected by the expanse of this war, Germans were deeply affected and forever changed. As a social, cultural, and psychological reaction to World War I, the German people created the Weimar Republic, leading to a drastic change in German society and culture. To best understand these changes, a comprehensive analysis of World War I, before, during, and after, is necessary.What was Germany before World

The main problem that Germany had to face at the end of the World War I was the Treaty of Versailles. It was the formal agreement that ended the war. American President and French Prime Minister had tempted Germany to surrender with their fourteen points. This plan was to be the basis for a treaty that emphasized peace and forgiveness. Some of these terms were particularly punishing the Germany. As the result of this treaty Germany's army minimized and Germany had big economic lost. In addition, Germany also had to give lots of land as a punishment. Therefore, Treaty of Versailles was unfair to Germany.First of all, the German army and navy were strictly limited. After March 31, 1920

Fascism in ever one of the three main countries, German, Spain, and Italy were slightly different in there own ways, but each Country ressembeld each other fairly similarly. The Major difference that sets Germany apart from Italy and Spain was Germanys much stronger sense of totalitarianism. Fascism took on the name of NAZI in Germany. The Nazi part was by far the most aggressive fascist movement of its time. Hitler, there leader, was also one of the most absolute fascist rulers, he had no competition.

The Treaty of Versailles was harsh to Germany. The reparations to the Allies was a heavy burden to Germany, it could not rebuild the economy after the war. The territorial arrangement led to loss of land and loss of Germans. The disarmament weakened its military power.Firstly, reparation of $6,600 millions for the losses and damages caused by the war to the Allies was a heavy burden to Germany. It had no money but it needed to pay for the reparation, it cannot rebuilt its economy.Secondly, Alsace-Lorraine was forced to return to France.

‘Cultural factors were the main reason for the growth of nationalism in Germany, 1819-1850.’ How valid is this view?
Prior to 1819, the land of ‘Germany’ was once part of the small four hundred states that composed the Holy Roman Empire, an empire which no longer exists. The Holy Roman Empire once was a titanic empire which stretched across central and western Europe from as early as the Middle Ages. This Empire was put to an end in 1806 when Napoleon Bonaparte and his French Empire successfully invaded and occupied central Europe, resulting in a military defeat that led to the last Holy Roman Emperor Francis II’s abdication and the dissolvement of the Holy Roman Empire.

Germany has been viewed as having a two and a half party system. Because their first democracy was so bad, Adolf Hitler was able to come to power. The first two major parties that developed were the Christian Democrats and the Social Democrats. The “half” party was the Liberal FDP which would be considered to have centrist ideas. It is called a “half” party because in the German electoral system a party must receive 5 percent of the national vote to receive seats in parliament (Orvis and Drogus 2018, 327).

Effects of Depression on DemocracyThe depression that hit Germany in 1929 is said to have been the most severe depression in modern world history. It devastated the lives of the German republic as well as caused the German Reichstag of 1930 to crumble. However, there were many other reasons for the demise of democracy. These include, but are not limited too, radical right wing extremists challenging democracy, structural problems within the government and hyperinflation.The most significant factor that contributed to the downfall of democracy was the economic repercussions caused by the depression.

By 1939 Adolf Hitler had been in power for six years in Germany.
Domestically, he had already started to achieve his aims, beginning his ethnic cleansing, and changing government policies on many issues. It was well known at the time that Hitler planned to have lebensraum – living space – for his citizens. He started off by occupying Austria, and convincing France and Britain that the status of Austria was an internal affair. Hitler then invaded the Sudetenland in what was known as Czechoslovakia. Even though Russia already had a protection pact with the Czechs, Neville Chamberlain, the British Prime-minister at the time, stuck with the policy of appeasement, meaning that Europe gave the

What was the significance of the naval race between Great Britain and Germany?
The HMS Dreadnought built in 1906.
Armament, as an important component of national strength, is one of the most significant means of international political struggles. During the First World War, the competition of armament contributed to the international tension before the war even started. For example, one of the major contradictions between Germany and the Great Britain was the Anglo-German naval race, a race of naval armament competed for colonies and global status. As one of the most significant event before WWI, the competition revealed nationalism thoughts, led

The Battle of Britain can be seen as a significant turning point in the war against Germany as they are unsuccessful in their bid to capture the British Isles. However, it can also be said that this battle's only real importance was the fact that Britain survived the attack, as the Allies were unable to retake Europe and defeat Germany at this point. Yet before the Battle of Britain Germany is the only victorious side.When war was declared in 1939 and Hitler had ordered the invasion of Poland the Allies were unable to stop him, and with the Red army (the Russians) invading Poland from the East, as planned for in the Nazi-Soviet pact, the country was taken within a matter of weeks.

Though Germany expected to be invited, but they were not invited into the discussion of the Versailles treaty. The German government were given just two weeks to consider the terms of Versailles Treaty, on top of this, most of their comments were being ignored and they were forced to sign the treaty or Germany will be invaded. The Versailles treaty showed that the Big Four: (The USA, Britain, France and Italy) would never want Germany to make a comeback.

To what extent did economic hardship contribute to the rise to power of a dictator?
A dictator is someone who has absolute power or who at least behaves as if they do by bossing others around. In government, a dictator is a ruler who has total control over the country, with no checks or balances to prevent abuse of power. When Hitler was appointed the chancellor, Germany was under the influence of a dictatorship. The death of President Hindenburg in August 1934 allowed him to combine both chancellor and president’s positions into one. During 1920s worldwide depression happened, this allowed Hitler to gain support. Germany fell into some great economic hardships after the great war, combined

The Nazi regime saw the start of a revolution that would change German society and culture. Hitler’s rise to and control of government had a significant effect on social and cultural life in the period of 1933-1939. Given the tyrannical nature of the Nazi regime, many aspects were purposely impacted specifically women, youth, religion, literature, art, cinema and music. Hitler began imposing changes on social and culture life from the start, with the justification of returning Germany to its former glory whilst still transforming it into his desired volksgemeinschaft.

The First World War broke out because of a system of two major European Alliances. These started a war due to Germany's ruthlessness, and caused a European war. Then the nations' colonies joined in, and eventually all of the world's major powers had joined in, causing the First World War.Before the main events of the war, two main alliances had been formed. Germany had defeated France in the Franco-Prussian war in 1871. 3 000 French soldiers were killed, 14 000 wounded, and about 100 000 captured. Most importantly, the Emperor Napoleon III was captured. Ever since 1871, Germans had been worried that France would attack them, so they sought alliances with the other major European nations, so

Many had given up traditional practices and appearances and had integrated into the mainstream of society. Some no longer practiced Judaism and had even begun celebrating Christian holidays, especially Christmas, with their non-Jewish neighbors. Many more had married Christians or converted to Christianity.

World War II was caused by a variety of factors and forces.The Second World War can be traced to the Treaty of Versailles, which had been imposed on Germany. This treaty was a kind of dictated peace. It deprived Germany of every scrap of its colonial empire. Danzig was cut off from Germany and the country was forced to stand totally disarmed. Allied troops were stationed in Germany, in order to enforce the provisions of the Treaty. Germany was burdened with reparations. It alone was held guilty of the war. Thus it caused hatred in the minds of the Germans who were born and brought up in the cult of revenge.The Paris Peace Conference of 1919 greatly disappointed victorious Italy. This

A series of events and reasons set the stage for the origin of this war, caused by the actions of various countries and their policies. However, if the blame for the start of the First World War could be attributed to one specific country, Germany would be the nation most responsible for the outbreak of the war, even if they were not quite fully to blame for the entirety of the war.

I was a soldier in World War I. Fighting at the front has changed my life. I lost many friends, but I also saw what the war was like. It was not just ‘‘Germany against the Allies’’, there were many other powers involved. I do not want to defend what the Germans did, but we were often not much better.
When I first saw the treaty of Versailles I agreed to most of the points. However, there are a few points I want to criticize. Article 231 is an example of this. In some parts, it is surely right to give Germany the war guilt, but when one thinks about it, the beginning of the war was a chain reaction and Germany just did the first

Hitler presented several possible foreign policy goals. First, he suggested that Germany could renounce setting a foreign policy goal at all. That meant that in reality Germany could decide to do what it wanted and be committed to nothing—he rejected this goal. Second, he suggested that “Germany positively affect the sustenance of the German people by peaceful economic means, as up to now.

Up to this point the Nazis had been a noisy but far from important part of the Reichstag that was dominated by the Socialists parties along with the traditional nationalist parties found in Weimar at the time. However, the great leap in unemployment throughout Weimar Germany and the seeming inability of the Weimar government to be able to control it mean that those without hope turned to the Nazi Party or to the Communist Party.

Factors which led to the rise of the Nazis.
There are diverse factors that can be attributed to the rise of the Nazis to power and the demise of the Weimar Republic. Which range from economic to political, and from individuals to events both within and outside the Weimar Republic.
The first significant economic factor are the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, signed on 28th June 1919. Germany had to acknowledge from Article 231 of the Treaty (the war guilt clause) that she was responsible for the first world war. This angered the vast majority of Germans as the clause served as the legal basis to compel Germany to pay the high reparations for the conflict. Whilst the reparation costs were
