The Munich Putsch

8th November 1923

Frusterated by Germanys defeate in WW1, left the nation economically and politically depressed. Hitler returned to the Munich, infiltrated a small group called the German Workers Party wich had a nationalistic and anti-semitic ideology. Hitler became one of the early leaders and changed its name to the Nazi Party. He was named leader in 1921. Germany lost respect for the leadership of the Weimar Republic. The Treaty of Versailles had triggered a runaway inflation that wiped out peoples savings. Janurary 1923, French & Belgian forces occupied the Ruhr, an act that contributed to a sense of national humiliation.

The attempt to over throw the German government in the form of a revolution failed. Hitler lost up to 16 of his members.The uprising was a complete embarassment, and the nazis had no clue of what was to happen.
