This paper discusses the different possible reasons for the rise of the Neo-Nazis in Germany. The paper addresses German humiliation in World War One and German anti-Semitism but argues that the ultimate blame has to lie with Adolf Hitler, Nazism and his hatred and quest for power. The paper asserts that to blame anything or anyone else is to exonerate Hitler and Nazis from who they were and from what they did.

From the Paper:

"In 1933, Adolf Hitler established a Nazi dictatorship in Germany. His regime would go on to perpetrate one of the greatest crimes in world history: the Jewish holocaust during the Second World War. This tragedy had its roots in the rise of the neo-Nazis in Germany in the post-WWI era. The neo-Nazi phenomenon was a product of many forces, but two causes of the movement remain crystal clear: German humiliation in World War One and German anti-Semitism. Both realities blended together to cause the rise of the Neo-Nazis. Germans had grown resentful at the terms of the Versailles Treaty in 1919 and a fierce nationalism spread among them. In this climate of humiliation, nationalism and a thirst for revenge grew. Such sentiment translated into a fierce anti-Semitism, which played a central role in facilitating the neo-Nazi movement's ascension to power.
"Germany's humiliation after the First World War was precisely the reason why the Versailles settlement and the League of Nations failed to establish a lasting peace. Ending World War I, the Treaty of Versailles was imposed on Germany by the Allies on June 28, 1919. Under the treaty, Germany was stripped of her colonies, received heavy economic "reparations," and saw its armed forces drastically reduced."
