Hitler's rise to power
how and why he came to power
Germany's economic depression
Still fresh in the minds of many was Germany's humiliating defeat fifteen years earlier during World War I which sent them into a great depression leaving the government weak in confidence. It soon gave an opportunity for a new leader to rise(Adolf Hitler) and Nazi party.
People believed Hitler and didn't fight the events leading up to kristallnacht which included jews losing all their rights, especially rights concerning businesses.
