Adolf Hitler’s rise to powerÂ began in Germany in September 1919Â whenÂ HitlerÂ joined the political party known as theÂ Deutsche ArbeiterparteiÂ â DAP (German Workers’ Party). The name was changed in 1920 to theÂ Nationalsozialistische Deutsche ArbeiterparteiÂ â NSDAP (National Socialist German Workers’ Party, commonly known as theÂ Nazi Party). This political party was formed and developed during the post-World War IÂ era. It wasÂ anti-MarxistÂ and opposed to the democratic post-war government of theÂ Weimar RepublicÂ and theÂ Treaty of Versailles; and it advocated extreme nationalism andÂ Pan-GermanismÂ as well as virulentÂ anti-Semitism. Hitler’s “rise” can be considered to have ended in March 1933, after theÂ ReichstagÂ adopted theÂ Enabling Act of 1933Â in that month. PresidentÂ Paul von HindenburgÂ had already appointed Hitler asÂ ChancellorÂ on 30 January 1933 after a series of parliamentary elections and associated backroom intrigues. The Enabling Actâwhen used ruthlessly and with authorityâvirtually assured that Hitler could thereafter constitutionally exercise dictatorial power without legal objection.
