How did Hitler become a dictator?


Hitler became dictator in Germany by running a campaign of terror against the German people. The favoured president at that time, Paul von Hindenburg, made the error of appointing one of Hitler's allies into the Cabinet, an ally who went on to dissolve the congress and call for new elections. After a lot of elections, Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany and gradually managed to obtain power from the country leaders.

Hitler became a dictator after he rose to the position of the Chancellor by President Hindenburg's appointment. The Enabling Act allowed Hitler the right to rule without consultation of the Reichstag or the president thus giving him dictator rights. Besides, Hitler had support from Hindenburg and companies that sought after him for defence from communists.
