Virtual Student Talk: The Nazi Rise to Power

November 24, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Nazi propaganda 1934

Propaganda played an important role in the Nazi Party’s rise to power. Rallies, like this one pictured, were an important way of spreading the Party’s ideas. This particular photograph was taken at a rally in Nuremberg in 1934. Wiener Holocaust Library Collections.

Part of the Library’s Autumn Term educational talks and workshops.

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 talk, aimed at GCSE and A-Level students will utilise sources from the Library’s unique archive to examine the Nazi rise to power. It will explore the aftermath of the First World War, the role of the Weimar Republic, the early years of the Nazi Party formation and how the Nazis ultimately consolidated their power.

Delivered by Kiera Fitzgerald, the Library’s Education Officer, this talk is suitable for those studying the following: KS3 History; GCSE History Edexcel: Weimar and Nazi Germany 1918-1939; GCSE History OCR: Germany 1925-1955: The People and The State. Edexcel A-Level History – Germany and West Germany, 1918–89; OCR History Democracy and Dictatorships in Germany 1919–1963; AQA History: Democracy and Nazism: Germany 1918-1945.
