The Reichstag Fire and Emergence of Hitler in 1933

About the Reichstag Fire and the emergence of Hitler as chancellor of Germany in the history of Europe.


Just before a crucial election to confirm Adolf Hitler as chancellor of Germany, the Reichstag (German Parliament Building) was gutted by fire. The Nazis blamed it on a young Dutch arsonist who they claimed was part of a German Communist party plot to take over the nation. Later evidence indicated the Nazis had started the blaze themselves. The Reichstag fire produced an all-powerful Hitler, and because of him, the end of the Weimar constitution, of all political opposition, of all civil liberties, and it led to the savage persecution of Jews and the catastrophe of W.W. II.
