Index to Events Relating to the Rise of the Third Reich 1920 to 1931  
  The Nazi party was founded from the far-right racist German nationalist movement and the violent anti-communist Freikorps paramilitaries that fought against the uprisings of communist revolutionaries in post First World War Germany. The Party was taken over by Adolf Hitler in 1925 but languished in political power until the Great Depression. The failure of Germany’s political parties to effectively deal with the economic conditions led to the emergence of the Nazi Party as a political party in the early 1930s. In 1931 Hitler was able to maneuver events into the appointment of the Chancellorship. Hitler used the Reichstag fire of February 27, 1933 to obtain emergency powers and in March the Enabling Act was passed by the Reichstag conferring dictatorial powers to Hitler.
