WW 1
World war one was an unforeseen war which no one expected. The Austria-Hungary Empire was frighten by the Sovjetunion and were scared of war. The Austria-Hungary Empire made a deal with Germany that they would help them if it would come to war. When war started Germany and the Austria-Hungary Empire was on the offensive and by Germany’s participation England, France and the US declared war. Adolf Hitler was a soldier in World War 1 for the German empire but he got injured and afterwards Germany surrendered even though the German army was still intact. The great depression which followed afterwards made way for Hitler so he in 1933 could declare himself for chancellor of Germany. He then promised the citizens of Germany that he would restore the economy and reunite Germany.

  • Abandonment of traditional values and beliefs



The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression in the decade preceding World War II. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations, but in most countries it started in about 1929 and lasted until the late 1930s or early 1940s. It was the longest, most widespread, and deepest depression of the 20th century.
In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline. The depression originated in the U.S., starting with the fall in stock prices that began around September 4, 1929 and became worldwide news with the stock market crash of October 29, 1929 (known as Black Tuesday). From there, it quickly spread to almost every country in the world.
The Great Depression had devastating effects in virtually every country, rich and poor. Personal income, tax revenue, profits and prices dropped, while international trade plunged by more than 50%. Unemployment in the U.S. rose to 25%, and in some countries rose as high as 33%.
Cities all around the world were hit hard, especially those dependent onheavy industry. Construction was virtually halted in many countries. Farming and rural areas suffered as crop prices fell by approximately 60%. Facing plummeting demand with few alternate sources of jobs, areas dependent on primary sector industries such as cash cropping, mining and logging suffered the most.
Some economies started to recover by the mid-1930s. In many countries, the negative effects of the Great Depression lasted until the start of World War II.
