Weimar in the Weimar Republic

Weimar in the Weimar Republic

1918 to 1933

(p.165) Chapter 6 Weimar in the Weimar Republic

Michael H. Kater

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on Weimar as the seat of the Weimar Republic's provisional national assembly, and how the National Socialists under Adolf Hitler entrenched themselves in the city and all of Thuringia. It begins by considering the establishment of the Society of Friends of the Nietzsche Archive in honor of Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, followed by a discussion of Weimar's right-wing culture featuring such personalities as Adolf Bartels, Paul Schultze-Naumburg, and Hans F. K. Günther. It then looks at how Hitler and his Nazi Party established their political power throughout Weimar. It also examines how the Thuringian elections held in December 1929 enabled the National Socialists to install a Nazi-controlled government in Germany at the regional level.

Keywords:   national assembly, Weimar, Weimar Republic, National Socialists, Adolf Hitler, Thuringia, Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche, right-wing culture, Nazi Party, Germany
