Few historians deny that the Great Depression played a key role in bringing Hilter to power in Germany, which was particularly badly affected by the Depression. In 1928, before the Great Depression, the Nazis won a total of 12 (out of just over 600, in other words, 2%) seats in the general elections to the Reichstag (the German parliament). They were a laughing-stock and Hitler was widely regarded as a funny little man. In 1932 there were two general elections in Germany. In the first, the Nazis won about 37% of the vote and in the second, about 33%. A key weakness in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s was the lack of an effective conservative party. The German Nationalist Party (DNVP) had lost much of its electoral appeal by a knee-jerk policy of supporting agrarian interests, for example. Note. An awful lot of people confuse the German inflation of the early 1920s with the Great Depression. In fact, the currency was stabilized by 1924, and in the early 1930s the problem in Germany was **falling prices**, which encouraged people to postpone non-essential purchases.

The Great Depression began on October 29th, 1929; World War II is generally agreed to have begun almost a decade later, on September 1st, 1939.

Germany and other European nations fell into such a hard depression after the first world war that is is both possible and probable that the Depression influenced the second world war.

The Great Depression in the United States actually fueled US isolationist policy that kept the United States out of the war.
