â€˜The Weimar Government completely Recovered in the period of 1924-1928â€™. How far do you agree?
After thorough research in this topic I am swayed more into agreeing that the Weimar Government did recover. This is because of multiple strong reasons that indicate they recovered. The Weimar was able to stabilise the economy using the Stressmanâ€™s Rentmark and taking loans from the USA. With a stable economy this shows that the Weimar republic recovered as before the economy was a mess because of the war and then the Treaty of Versailles. In 1925 the German government also signed the Locarno treaty which the abled them to get a seat in the League of Nations in 1926. This is important, as they are now part of a group that will help each other out in tough ...view middle of the document...
Finally in 1928 they were able to keep the Nazi party down to only 3% of the German peoples votes. This showed that the German people did not really want the Nazis at this time, as the economy was doing so well and life in Germany on the whole so much better as they adopted the western style of life.
However some would say that they hadnâ€™t recovered because many people in Germany thought that the new German culture was immoral and that they were just trying to adopt this new culture to impress the western countries such as Britain and America. Also 30% of German votes were going to anti-democratic parties, this is very bad as even if a party gets 1% they will be able to get a seat in the Weimar republic and therefor getting a say in discussions. Peasant farmers were also struggling at this time due to the acceptance of the treaty of Versailles, which took away a lot of German farm land and a lot of the agricultural. In the coal and iron industry was in strikes because of the French invasion into the Ruhr land. Many also thought that Germany was over reliant on the USA, if the USAâ€™s economy crashed the German government would be in a bad state, and as many know the wall street crash did occur. Right Wing Nationalists hated the Locarno treaty, most right wing nationalists were of Russian descent therefor they hated the Locarno treaty as Russia thought it was being stabbed in the back by the USA, Britain and France. Germany and Russia are enemyâ€™s and Russia were not given any benefits from the Treaty of Versailles and Germany were allowed into the league of nations.
In conclusion I am swayed slightly more to the side that agrees that the Weimar Republic did recover as the economy was strong again after its weak period of hyper inflation.
