Nazism and Germany

Show Summary Details


Germany made its best efforts to revise Versailles, and soon it was realized that revisionism was one of the few things that Germans involved in the Weimar Republic agreed on. ‘Weimar’ was also seen as an object for revision by most Germans who were not under the ‘Weimar Coalition’ around the Social Democratic Party. As Germany was able to acquire large portions of land from Poland, its leaders and leaders of the USSR saw post-Habsburg states as inauthentic Allied puppets. One of the connections between Germany and the imperial shatterzones involved the ethnic Germans, which included a part of Austria that accounted for an unbalanced number of Nazis. Hitler, the most famous Austrian German, realized through the xenophobic environment of Vienna that multinationality was a source of weakness.
