The defeat of the Germans lost alot of money due to the treaty of Versailles which was a treaty inwhich Germany had to be alot of Marks to the Allies for the first world war. Since the German nation was punished by the allies more than needed, Hitler stood up and said lets be strong and lets become a real country again, of course people agreed, Germany was at a all time low in the econamy and financial side of things. This was one of the advantages Hitler had. All the other politicans seemed scared that they would anger the allies whereas Hitler differed and that's why the people of Germany favoured him and his party.
