There were a number of reasons that Hitler rose to power. Remember that the depression and a burdensome treaty punished Germany. Was he simply there at the right time or could another German have rallied the masses to do his bidding? Hitler did indeed have a hatred of the Jewish people, but also a hatred of gypsies, and races that he viewed to be inferior. How did he sell his view? Was it is oratory skills, his book Mein Kampf, leadership ability? What about the fact that he delivered on his promise to create jobs? He basically created the War economy.
