Enduring obstacles despite these significant obstacles, the nazi regime had, to a considerable le extent, consolidated power by the end of 1933 there were a number of reasons: there were high levels of collaboration of individuals and institutions with the regime because there were aspects of that government that they recognised and supported. It is to an certain extent that nazi consolidation of power in 1933 was due to the use of terror and violence however the terror and violence was very limited because the nazi’s weren’t in a strong enough position to exert terror and violence alone.
Through the late 1920s and early 1930s, the nazis gathered enough electoral support to become the largest political party in the reichstag, and hitler's blend of political acuity, deceptiveness and cunning converted the party's non-majority but plurality status into effective governing power in the ailing weimar republic of 1933.
The reichstag,the german parliament building is burnt down hitler blames communists and other nazi opponents and arrests 4000 many germans believe the nazi's create the fire themselves, so they can use the communists as a scapegoat to gain support in the march 1933 election. How far do you agree that hitler’s consolidation of power between january 1933 and august 1934 can be described as a “legal revolution” it is to a certain extent that nazi consolidation of power in 1933 was due to the use of terror and violence. It is to an certain extent that nazi consolidation of power in 1933 was due to the use of terror and violence however the terror and violence was very limited because the nazi's weren’t in a strong enough position to exert terror and violence alone.
Another way that the nazis consolidated their power through violence was at the appointment of 50,000 sa, ss and stahlhelm members on 22nd february 1933 to create a wave of violence against communists and spd supporters.
A law of 14th july 1933 made the nazi party the only legal party in germany any attempt to revive the old, or create new, political parties would be regarded as a crime thirdly, trade unions were banned.
The establishment that had brought hitler to power held the reins of power and did not expect to lose control the most powerful politician in germany in 1933 was president hindenburg, and hitler had to work with a number of powerful establishment figures from the newly appointed vice-chancellor von papen to the soon to be president of the reichsbank and economics minister hjalmar schacht.
