Weimar in the Third Reich

Weimar in the Third Reich

1933 to 1945

(p.212) Chapter 7 Weimar in the Third Reich

Michael H. Kater

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on the National Socialists' establishment of the Third Reich in Weimar that lasted from 1933 to 1945. More specifically, it assesses the importance of Weimar in Adolf Hitler's overall scheme of things after he assumed power on January 30, 1933. It first considers how Nazi authorities were able to extend their control over Thuringia's economy and culture; Hans Severus Ziegler's role in expanding the Third Reich's influence in Weimar; and how the degree of Weimar's importance to the Nazis affected the town's development from 1933 to 1945. It then discusses Friedrich Nietzsche's role in the Nazis' efforts to capitalise on Weimar's tradition as a cultural icon. Finally, the chapter looks at the aestheticisation of politics in Weimar in the form of sports meets, mass rallies, and congresses.
