The Rise of Dictators – (1920 – 1930)
Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, several countries in the world turned to dictatorship to solve economic, political and social issues.
Adolph Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933 with promises of fixing Germany’s economy and restore lands and power taken by the unfair Treaty of Versailles.
In Italy, Benito Mussolini promised people law, order and prosperity.
In Japan, Emperor Hirohito promise very similar things, and in the USSR (Russia) Joseph Stalin was continuing the communist state that had existed since 1917, where the government would enforce economic equality among the people.
How it contributed to WWII:
– The rise of a “strong and charismatic” leader promises to fix their country’s problems, causing the people to believe in them as well as side with their decisions
– These dictators then successfully come to power, resulting in all further actions/agreements that are done
Considering Long-Time Causes:
– Cause (For Germany): Treaty of Versailles & Rise of Dictators
(It was Hitler who came into power because of the Treaty of Versailles.)
(Also, Hitler and every other dictator came to power to try and make promises with their people.)
