Virtual Student Revision: Democracy and Nazism – The Nazi Dictatorship

May 3 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Adolf Hitler with Hjalmar Schacht (right), laying the foundation stone of the new construction of the Reichsbank, 5th May 1934.

The end of the First World War marked the beginning of a period of political and economic instability in Germany. As a result of this instability, many small, extremist political groups appeared. With the collapse of democracy, one such party, the NSDAP, or Nazi Party, rose to power in Germany.

This revision session, aimed at GCSE and A-Level students, will utilise sources from the Library’s unique archive to examine the Nazi Dictatorship. It will explore the idea of ‘the Terror State’; the role of the SS and Gestapo; opposition to the Nazis; Nazi propaganda and the extent of totalitarianism in Germany.

Delivered by Kiera Fitzgerald, the Library’s Education Officer, this session is suitable for those studying the following:

  • KS3 History
  • GCSE History Edexcel: Weimar and Nazi Germany 1918-1939
