Die nationalsozialistische Machtergreifung nach der Machtübertragung Die nationalsozialistische Machtergreifung nach der Machtübertragung

Prof. Ulrich Schlie

The seizure of power by the National Socialists in January 1933 is a key event in world history. Hitler's rapid consolidation of power and the elimination of democracy virtually overnight still astonish and shock to this day. And to this day, historians disagree about the reasons for the end of the Weimar Republic and the rapid success of the National Socialists.

This book casts an international perspective on the epochal year 1933 90 years later and explores the questions: How could it happen? How can something similar happen again? And can we learn anything from it in times when democracies are under pressure and dictatorships are on the rise?

"Die nationalsozialistische Machtübernahme vollzog sich, wie ein politisch aufmerksamer Zeitgenosse im Rückblick einmal bemerkt hat, "mit der Naturgewalt eines Erdbebens, begleitet von einem riesigen Bergrutsch, der alle öffentlichen und privaten Bereiche bis in die Familien hinein erfasste".
