18 Events the Created the Nazi Germany

The following sequence of seventeen events ultimately created the Nazi Germany:

  1. Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Although by that time it was already exposed as the fraud, Hitler and the Nazis still believed that this document (that ostensibly described Jewish plan for world domination) was genuine. Consequently, it became the foundation for their (incorrect) belief that they were fighting the existential racial war with the (completely fictional) “Jewish race”. Which ultimately led to the persecution of Jews and to the horrors of the Holocaust
  2. The First World War. Prior to the Great War, chances of Adolf Hitler and the Nazis to create the genuinely large political party (let alone enter the Reichstag) were precisely zero. The war changed the situation in Germany radically (to put it mildly), created problems that only Nazis could solve and needs that only Nazis could satisfy. Which eventually brought the latter to absolute power in Germany
  3. Zimmerman Telegram. By spring of 1917, the Great War came to a stalemate. The enormous blunder by Zimmerman (his supposedly top-secret telegram to the German ambassador in Mexico was decoded by the British and promptly relayed to Americans), brought the USA into the war and led to the defeat of the Central powers. Which radically changed the situation in Germany and ultimately paved the way for the Nazis to acquire the absolute power in Germany
  4. October Revolution of 1917 and the subsequent Civil War in Russia. Which demonstrated the horrors of Bolshevist regime and created the existential Bolshevist threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization. The threat that only the Nazis could protect Germany from. Which ultimately played a key role in their ascent to absolute power in Germany.
  5. Blockade of Germany and the resulting hunger of 1917-19 that killed half a million of Germans. The burning (and understandable) desire to make sure that it never happens again resulted in a widespread acceptance of the Lebensraum principle preached by the Nazis. Which significantly contributed to their ascent to power. The Lebensraum objective ultimately led to the occupation of Czechoslovakia and invasion of Poland (and subsequently of the Soviet Union)
  6. Armistice of November 11th, 1918. By signing this armistice, the German government officials (already of the Weimar Republic) acknowledged the defeat of Germany in the Great War. Which was perceived by the Nazis as a betrayal (the “stab-in-the-back”) and created in them an extremely powerful drive to “right the wrongs” of the Armistice. This drive brought Nazis to power and ultimately led to the outbreak of the Second World War
  7. November Revolution of 1918. This revolution did away with Imperial Germany and replaced it with a Weimar Republic. Which the Nazis hated so much that this hatred became an extremely potent drive for them. This drive ultimately brought them to power and led to the demise of the republic and the establishment of a totalitarian Third Reich
  8. Communist Uprisings and Soviet Republics (led mostly by Jewish politicians) in Germany and Hungary in 1919. These uprisings and republics led Nazis to (correctly) recognizing Bolshevism (and the Soviet Russia) as the existential threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization and (incorrectly) perceiving it as a part of a global Jewish conspiracy to conquer and dominate the world. Which ultimately led to the invasion of the Soviet Union and to the Holocaust
  9. Establishment of Comintern in 1919 (headed by the Jewish Soviet Bolshevik Grigory Zinoviev). Comintern was the international organization established by Vladimir Lenin and his Bolshevik henchmen with the explicit purpose of conquering the world and transforming it into one global Communist state. This led the Nazis to a (correct) conclusion that Bolshevism (and the Soviet Russia) presented the existential threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization; and to the (incorrect) conclusion that it was a part of a global Jewish conspiracy to conquer and dominate the world. Which ultimately led to the invasion of the Soviet Union and to the Holocaust
  10. The Grand Armed Robbery – the Versailles Treaty of 1919. Draconian and humiliating terms of this treaty radically changed the situation in Germany creating in Germans new needs and desires that only Nazis could satisfy. Which ultimately brought the latter to the absolute power in Germany. It also created widespread messianic longings and expectations among both the “higher” and the “lower” classes. Which later made Germans gladly accept Adolf Hitler as their Messiah and their Führer
  11. Soviet-Polish War of 1920 – the first attempt of the Soviet Russia (and its Bolshevist rulers) to invade and conquer Europe. It almost succeeded (5the Red Army was several kilometers from Warsaw and a just a week’s march from Berlin). Only the “Miracle on the Vistula River” saved Poland, Germany and the whole Europe. This led the Nazis to a (correct) conclusion that Bolshevism (and the Soviet Russia) presents the existential threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization. And the fact that commander-in-chief of the Red Army (Leon Trotsky) was a Jew, led the Nazis the (incorrect) conclusion that it was a part of a global Jewish conspiracy to conquer and dominate the world. Which ultimately led to the invasion of the Soviet Union and to the Holocaust
  12. Rise of the Soviet Military-Industrial Complex. After their defeat in the Soviet-Polish War, Joseph Stalin and other Bolsheviks insisted that they now focused strictly inward and abandoned their goal of the “permanent revolution”. However, by the early 1930s, it became increasingly obvious that it was a lie – plain and simple. The Soviet Union was rapidly building a military-industrial complex which could have only one objective – invade and conquer the Western civilization, destroy it and replace it with the global Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Which further reinforced their (correct) belief that the Soviet Union presented an existential threat to Germany
  13. Domestic Soviet State Terrorism. By the end of 1920s, the Soviet Bolsheviks murdered millions of citizens of the Soviet Russia and the Soviet Union during the Civil War and subsequent purges. Which proved again and again that the Soviet Union presented an existential threat to Germany, Europe and the whole Western civilization
  14. Soviet Subversive and Terrorist Activities Abroad. In the 1920s, the Foreign Department of the Soviet secret police (Cheka/GPU/NKVD) conducted a number of assassinations and kidnappings in Europe as well as a number of terrorist facts. The most horrific such act was the bombing St. Nedelya Church in Sofia, Bulgaria. It was carried out on April 16th, 1925, when a group of the Bulgarian Communist Party blew up the church’s roof during the funeral service of General Konstantin Georgiev, who had been killed in a previous communist assault on April 14th. 150 people, mainly from the country’s political and military elite, were killed in the attack and around 500 were injured. A year and a half before that, on October 23rd, 1923 Comintern struck in Germany proper. Rebels attacked 24 police stations in Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein, leaving 100 dead. There was no doubt at all that Comintern (and the Soviet Union) presented the genuine existential threat to Germany and Europe.
  15. Hyperinflation of 1922-1924 which was caused primarily by the reparations that Germany had to pay to the victorious Allied Powers. Although by 1924, the government managed to put an end to hyperinflation and stabilize the currency (primarily due to highly efficient policies of the currency commissioner Hjalmar Schacht), it further eroded trust in the government. And the fact that ultimately hyperinflation was caused by the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, it increased the appeal of the Nazis who were the most outspoken opponents of those restrictions
  16. Great Depression of 1929-33. Due to the stock market crash of 1929 and subsequent retraction of cash and capital from the German economy, the industrial production fell by half. By the end of 1929 around 1.5 million Germans were out of work; within a year this figure had more than doubled. By early 1933 unemployment in Germany had reached a staggering six million. In this dire situation, Germans from both “higher” and “lower” classes began to look again for a Messiah, a Savior. Whom they predictably found in Adolf Hitler.
  17. Parliamentary Crisis of 1932. In November 1932 Reichstag elections, NSDAP got 33% of the vote, SPD came second with 21.6%, the Communists came third with 14.3% and the Center Party fourth with 12%. Due to deep ideological divisions, it became impossible to form a workable coalition government. So two influential politicians, Franz von Papen and Alfred Hugenberg, along with several other industrialists and businessmen, wrote a letter to Hindenburg. The signers urged President Hindenburg to appoint Hitler as leader of a government “independent from parliamentary parties”. Hindenburg agreed and on January 30th, 1933 signed the decree that appointed Adolf Hitler Reich Chancellor – head of the German government.
  18. Reichstag Fire. On February 27th, 1933, Marinus van der Lubbe – a Dutch Communist, pyromaniac and a convicted arsonist – who on February 27th, 1933 started the Reichstag Fire and thus paved the way for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis to obtain absolute power in Germany (which they did less than a month later).
