beer hall putsch

If Hitler was never voted for, and didn't become a dictator, the Holocaust would have never happened. Hitlers first attempt to take power was in 1923, with the beer hall putsch. Hitler and his followers had a plan to kidnap the state commissioner of Bavaria,Gustav von khar, and two other conservative politicians. he would then lead a march to Berlin and try to overthrow the Wiemer republic. Unfortunately , for Hitler, the plan did not work out that good. Hitler herd von khar was supposed to address a crowd at one of the biggest beer halls ever, Hitler ordered hundreds of his followers to surround the building. Later that night, during their march, Hitler and his followers were stopped by a group of police officers, they opened fire. The night ended with 20 deaths and Hitler sentenced to five years in prison. Hitler ended up only staying behind bars for less than a year. The beer hall putsch turned Hitler into a national figure.

Hitler becomes a dictator

still fresh in the minds of German citizens was their humiliating defeat in world war one. due to this, and a worldwide depression, the people of Germany felt that there government was weak, and wanted a change. these conditions provided a chance for a new leader, and Adolf Hitler and his party, the nazi’ s, were there. Hitler was powerful, and attracted many that wanted a change. the nazi’s appealed to younger people, unemployed, and members of the lower class. Hitler promised a better life and a better Germany. Hindenbirg, the president, and von papen, the chancellor, offered Hitler the job of vice chancellor, because von papen needed more support. Hitler refused and demanded to be the chancellor, Hindenbirg and von papen took the risk and appointed Hitler as chancellor. Hindenbirg thought he could control him, but unfortunately he was wrong. in the end Hitler did not take power at all, he was given it, but being chancellor was not enough for Hitler. He wanted more power. in February 1933, he blamed a devastating fire on the communist, and convinced president Hindenburg to sign a decree, that suspends peoples liberties. Hitler used this decree to silence his political enemies with false arrest. So when president Hindenburg died in 1934, intimidation and fear brought Hitler a 90% majority. He was now a dictator.
