The destruction of democracy by Hitler

By 1932, Nazi Party had become the largest party with 37 percent votes in the Reichstag – the German parliament.

On January 30, 1933, Hitler was offered the Chancellorship by President Hindenburg because his party got the largest percentage of votes.

Chancellorship was the highest position in the Cabinet.

Hitler did not believe in democracy so he took steps to destruct democracy in Germany.

The Destruction of Democracy

He began to work against the democratic structure of the Weimer Republic.

Then, a mysterious fire broke out in the Parliament building in February.

Hitler took advantage of it and issued the Fire decree.

The decree is a kind of governance where the ruler can change any law by his wish.

Hitler suspended the rights like the freedom of speech, press, and assembly which were guaranteed by the Weimer constitution.

On March 3, the famous Enabling Act was passed. This act established dictatorship in Germany.

This act gave Hitler all powers to sideline Parliament.

All political parties and trade unions were banned except for the Nazi Party and its allies.

Special surveillance and security forces were created to run the society, the way Nazi wanted.
