Hilter rose to power using the political system of the Weimar Republic by establishing a national party organization and forming a majority in the Reichstag, or German parliament. He had gained a lot of support due to the economic crisis, including from leaders of industry and the military. Hitler was legitimately given power in 1933 when the President gave him the position of chancellor. He then used his majority in the Reichstag to pass the Enabling Act that allowed the constitution to be ignored in a four-year period in order to fix Germany’s problems. The parliament quickly and legally elected Hitler, and he became the dictator of Germany, controlling all state institutions.
