Without the treaty of Versailles Hitler may have never came to power. The Nazi party thrived when things looked bad, because they offered ways out, although most of the time they couldn't fullfil, and when times were good people would stay clear of the radical ideas of the Nazi party. When the treaty of Versailles was enabled, Germany lost its pride, and slid into a great depression, Hitler seized this momment, he blamed all the problems of Germany on the Jewish community, although the Jews had nothing to do with this, the people of Germany needed someone to blame and focus their hate on, Hitler gave them this. Most people at this time didnt follow the Nazi beliefs at all, but using negative cohesion he still mananged to gain support amongst the public, Hitler hated the treaty and told the people he would rip it up, he told Germany he would rebuild their army and regain their national pride, all these ideas appealed to the public, so the people supported Hitler at this time. Which is how Hitler used the treaty to gain support.

The treaty of versailles practically destoryed Germany. The treaty took away all their colonies and they couldn't trade with anyone else in Europe. Germany was the hardest hit in the great depression, and that's how Hitler came into power, by promising his people that he would destroy the treaty of Versailles and make Germany the power it once was

Hitler held on to the Treaty of Versailles and used it to convince the rest of Germany that the Allied Powers were to blame. He basically said that Germany should take revenge on Britain for the damages Britain did to them.

When Germany fell under the power of Hitler, there were many changes. Hitler felt that the German people were wronged by the Treaty of Versailles, and tried to acquire Europe through wars and persecution.
