The Treaty of Versailles was after the first world war. Since Germany lost they had to forcefully sign the treaty and all the terms on it to move on. This made the German people very angry and full of hate. Hitler saw this and used it as an opportunity to take power for himself. He used the Germans people anger and hatred to get people behind what he was saying. All the people wanted was to be a strong nation again and that's what Hitler promised to the people.
During the time when the Wiemar Republic was forming the Nazi's were becoming one of the biggest political groups in Germany. To get even more power we joined the Wiemar Republic to get to the top.
When Hitler made article 48 it was the biggest move he made yet. Article 48 stated that Hitler was basically allowed to pass laws without the approval of the President or Germany's Parliament. After he made this, this was basically were Hitler had started his Dictatorship and got the power he always wanted.
