How did Nazism become a mass movement?

Answer :

Nazism became a mass movement during the Great Depression. Banks were destroyed, businesses were shut down, workers lived a worse life as they lost their jobs and the middle-class population was threatened by the lack of subsistence. Because of this people started hoping that Nazi propaganda will provide them with a better future. Ultimately, the Nazi party became the largest party with acquiring 35% votes by 1932.

Along with all this, Hitler adopted various measures to make Nazism a mass movement which were:


• Hitler gave a powerful speech and promised people to provide them with the jobs and secure future. To establish total control over its people and to generate support for Hitler, Nazis held rallies, displayed red banners with the swastika and Nazi salute.


• He promised people establishment of a strong nation and to reverse the injustice done to the Germans people through the Treaty of Versailles.


• They cleverly made the use of media and language to popularize their ideology and beliefs.


• Nazis through various means made people believed that Hitler is ‘messiah, a saviour who has come to save them and provide them with a better future.’
