Expert Answer:

Factors that were responsible for the rise of Hitler were:
  • Germany faced defeat in the First World War. The war severely affected its economy and prestige. Further, the Great Economic depression of 1929 hit the German economy hard.
  • As industries closed down, number of unemployed people increased. Many young people took to criminal activities in wake of unemployment.
  •  As the German currency lost its value, the savings of the working class and the pensioners reduced.
  • These hostile conditions existing in Germany created an ideal platform for the emergence of Hitler. Hitler gave firy speeches and organised mass rallies with red banners, swastika and the Nazi salute. People were enchanted with these massive rallies. He was projected as a messiah by the Nazi party, who could only save Germany from the effects of economic depression.
  • He promised to make Germany a powerful nation and restore the prestige of Germans.
