account for the rise of Nazism in Germany after the first world war please give answer in points

Dear Student

​​​​​​(i) The treaty of Versailles had been signed between the victorious powers of World War 1 and Germany in 1919.
(ii) The treaty caused enormous resentment in Germany as it blamed Germany entirely for the war and imposed harsh conditions on Germany. Germany lost territory and had to pay enormous reparations to the victorious countries. These measures crippled the German economy and caused great social problems there.
(iii) The Nazi party led by Hitler was able to exploit the resentment caused by these measures by denouncing the treaty and promising to repudiate it if it came to power. Such statements increased its popularity.
(iv) Hitler dissolved the Catholic Youth League, Catholic schools were closed down. Many priests and nuns were sent to the concentration camps.
(v) The personality of Hitler itself was a major factor behind the rise of Nazism. Hitler was a highly charismatic figure. He was a very good public speaker able to convince large number of people that he had the answer to Germany's problems. He promised to restore Germany's lost glory if he came to power.
