Hitler used this to his advantage and was named the chancellor of germany. Article 48 also allowed the determination of many rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, privacy in letters or phone calls, and more.
The weimar republic was failing due to their unstable economic conditions. They relied on loans from America. Once the stock market crashed in the U.S., they had no support from our government. Extremist groups such as the Nazis had more of an opportunity to take over.

Hitler was a master at creating lies and conspiracies. He studied lots of propaganda and figured out ways to turn a very untrue fact into a nation wide opinion.

He turned the Jewish people into the scapegoats and then nobody else had to take the blame.
