The Weimar Republic

Subjects / History / Germany, 1918 to 1991

Price: £2.95 Duration: 38mins Full topic price: £17.95

A comparison of Germany in 1914 with Germany in 1924 would reveal a great shift in culture, economy and government. Germany in 1914 was an autocratic nation, which means a nation ruled by a leader with unlimited power. Ten years later, Germany was beginning to throw off the shackles of the Treaty of Versailles, and was now a democracy. The man who transformed Germany's fortunes was Gustav Stresemann. Under his guidance Germany recovered from a deep financial crisis, regained confidence, and witnessed a cultural renaissance. His influence extended until his death and the Wall Street Crash of 1929, which led to economic depression and increasing public support for a more extreme solution. This title will look at how Germany went from a dictatorship to a progressive democracy, only to install another dictator in the shape of Adolf Hitler.
