The Jews and communists have destroyed our lives and ruined Germany's economy!
Private armies called Freikorps was created to overthrow the Weimar Government. These groups were staffed by a vast group of discontent men were angry at being unemployed. Eventually as many as 1.5 million German men joined Freikorps group. They represented a growing tide of nationalism and right-wing extremism that would erupt into political chaos and eventually lead to the ride of the Nazi.
The death of Walther Rathenau
The new government lacked authority, so it leaned on the freikorps to fight its battles. There was so much violence from worker's groups on the left and increasingly combative right-wing groups who resented Germany's abdication to the international community's demands after WW1. Freikorps and other paramilitary groups, whom was legitimized and bolstered, was given free rein to terrorize whom they pleased
Malfred saves Hans from the assasin
Meanwhile, right-wing splinter groups, backed by their own militias, tried to encourage nationalism and extremism by propagating conspiracy theories and pointed fingers at Jews and communists for Germany's precarious economy and an epidemic of unemployment. Anti-Semitism became a driving after the war, fueled by the mistaken belief that the left wing had "stabbed Germany in the back" by stoking revolution as the country was losing WW1.
As the government stabilized, the Freikorps began to fade. But a hardened core group kept up the fight under the auspices of Organization Consul. In June 1922, their target was Walther Rathenau. They resisted his economic policies and vilified his work. He was also Jewish. He was then gunned down at close range by an assasin from the group with a machine gun.
Hans was at the scene of Walther's death and was also about to be shot too when Malfred came to the scene and saved Hans. They ran away to somewhere safe and rested until Hans spotted a huge loss of blood from Malfred. It seemed that Malfred was hit while they ran away. Malfred was really tired and told Hans to go ahead without him. Hans was upset but had chosen to run away.
Hans found the exit and left the building. He cried as he escaped but he wanted to live.
