    Germany was in a period of extreme poverty with exceptionally high inflation which Hitler and his party promised to bring them out of. He blamed the Jews who were largely shop keepers and the people listened to him.

    -very high unemployment which with democratic parties and political elites in Germany were unable to deal

    -some sections of German society were afraid of the rise of the Communist party and actually experienced violent protests (although this was not only the fault of the Communist party)

    -the left (Social-democrats and Communists) was divided and enemies

    -the Nazis presented themselves as more dynamic as other political parties and drew more young voters

    After WW1, the newly formed League of Nations made Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles. It made Germany pay and pay until many of the Germans were in poverty. When 1929 came, the market crashed. This made the whole world go into recession. The Germans, who were already poor because of the Treaty of Versailles, were hit even harder. They could no longer pay. Fascism started to arise. Adolf Hitler led the cause. He also gave the Germans jobs by reopening the factories to build military equipment. He thus came to power in this way.

    Adolf Hitler's rise to power began in Germany in September 1919 when Hitler joined the political party then known as the Deutsche Arbeiterpartei – DAP (German Workers' Party). The name was changed in 1920 to the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei – NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers' Party, commonly known as the Nazi Party

    He did exactly what Trump does now - he rubbed salt in their wounds.

    People were pissed off.  Germany was in rough shape after the war.  They had gone from being arguably the most powerful country in Europe to a massive depression.  They were humiliated by the Allies and their peace terms.  Radical political groups of various stripes sprung up.  The Nazis promised to make Germany great again.  They promised a return of German greatness and they offered a theory of Germany's fall that absolved most Germans of any kind of blame.  Hitler preached a very aggressive form of German nationalism that appealed to a lot of people (although the Nazis were at one point the most popular party in the legislature they never won an outright majority in a free election).  A lot of people who should have known better dismissed Hitler as too clownish to be a threat.  Or they thought he was joking about some of his more outrageous statements (a Time magazine article from the 20s said that Hitler was just using anti-Semitism to get the rubes on his side).  Then there were a lot of more mainstream conservatives who thought that they could use Hitler to get what they wanted.  A lot of the military officers who took part in the July 20th 1944 coup attempt had initially supported Hitler because they thought they could use him to restore the power and glory of the German military.  Like many more moral people who had supported Hitler they eventually learned that he wasn't anyone's pawn and was going to do what he wanted to do.

    Because he loved the German people and wanted to save them and Europe from the Zionist and Communist monsters .so he was appointed to save the world.

    It's important to note, Hindenburg won the 1932 presidential election and appointed Hitler chancellor in 1933. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1932_German_presiden...

    Hitler was the benefactor of good timing. He had been ranting about the harsh WW1 treaty conditions predicting imminent doom. The Depression in 1929 hit Germany particularly hard and made him look like a genius. He was on his way up.

    Almost by the same mechanism as that which allowed Trump to rise. In different ways both promised to make their countries great again.  Both induced a feel-good factor for a while.  Hitler got much more good-feeling going, but indeed he started from a much lower base of national 'poor-feeling'.

    Note to TB12: Within a year of being elected Hitler had destroyed the basis of democracy in Germany, but the people in general did not worry too much about that as long as their lives were improving.  Little did they know that their lives would be beaten back to almost medieval living among the rubble of their cities within less than a dozen years by a disastrous war.
