The focus is on the years 1932-1933 the rise of Adolf Hitler as a politician, which eventually led to his dictatorship and the Nazi-Regime. Hitler had to fight many obstacles and setbacks, it almost seemed impossible for his party to ever gain power, but his ruthless determination and versatile diplomacy combined with his opponents dramatic mistakes and many coincidences finally led him to power. With Hitler's appointment as the 30th Chancellor January 1933 begins the end of the Weimar Republic. Within months he abolished press freedom, suspended fundamental rights, established the first concentration camps. With the Enabling Act he dis-empowers the Parliament, and the Nazi party is the only party. In June 1934, Hitler can kill his former comrades Röhm and his opponents Strasser and Schleicher. Five years it will take until the beginning of World War II and the way that led to the greatest crimes of the 20th Century has been prepared. Written by anonymous
