Nazism became popular in Germany by 1930 because Germany was forced to sign the Treaty of Versailles, in which it was considered guilty of the war and had to pay the damages the country was hit by the Great Depression, and the Weimar Republic could not remedy the situation. Further, Hitler was presented as a savior of the people who promised to undo the injustice faced by Germans and provide economic security to the country. Hence, by 1930, with Hitler as the leader, the Nazi Party was totally in power.

Popularity of Nazism in Germany after 1930

The rise of Nazism cannot be attributed to any single event in history. However, the desperate socio-political scenario and economic crisis of the country during the 1930s can be reasoned to explain the rise in support of the Nazi party during that period.

Adolf Hitler’s promises to restore German greatness and bring back political and economic stability won him much support, especially from the German working class. The other reasons for the popularity of Nazism in Germany by 1930 are:

  • The poor economic conditions of the country and the division between the Social Democrats and Communists gave way to the Nazis’ agenda.
  • As per the agenda, the Nazis blamed the financial crisis on the Jewish and the Bolsheviks.
  • Hitler’s promises of overturning the Treaty of Versailles and restoring German greatness won him votes.
  • The political state of the country and economic desperation all played in the Nazi party’s favor. The working class of the country was most threatened and found promise in Hitler’s agenda.
