How did Hitler change Germany from a democracy into a Nazi dictatorship between 1933 and 1934?


During 1933-1934, Hitler came to power by becoming Chancellor of Germany, elected by Hindenburg after his two advisors failed to get support from the Reichstag those advisors were Von Papen and Von Schleicher. The support for the Nazi party increased since the great depression because Hitler promised jobs for the unemployed in state-financed public works programmes, help employers to increase their profits, help farmers and shop keepers.

Hitler used this opportunity to consolidate his power by using this event that the fire was proof or a communist plot to take control of the government, thus leading to persuade President Hindenburg to sign an emergency decree, the Law for the People and the State. The law enabled him to arrest all communist leaders without trial. This step was the ‘Elimination of Oppositions’. So with the removal of communist Hitler’s step to dictatorship has risen.
