Hitler joined The German Workers' Party in 1919 and rose to leadership through his emotional and captivating speeches. He encouraged national pride, militarism and commitment to a racially 'pure' Germany. He condemned the Jews, exploiting antisemitic feelings that had prevailed Europe for centuries. He changed the name of the party to The National Socialist German Workers' Party, called for short, The Nazi Party. By the end of 1920, The Nazi Party had about 3,000 members. A year later Hitler became it's official leader, Fuhrer.

Adolf Hitler attempted to otherthrow The Beer Hall Putsch, but failed. Hitler was arrested. However, Hitler used the courtroom at his public trial as a Propaganda platform, ranting for hours against the Weimar government. By the end of the 24-day trial Hitler gained support for his courage to act. The right-wing presiding judges sympathized with Hitler and sentenced him only five years in prison. Hitler was released from prison after only one year.

While in prison Hitler wrote volume one of Mein Kampfwhich was published in 1925. After he was released from prison he resurrected The Nazi Party. By 1929 The Nazi Partyhad 108,000 members. Soon the SS, The Hitler Youth, The Student League and The Pupils' League were open to young Germans. The National Socialist Women's League allowed women to get involved as well.

In the election of 1932 The Nazi Party won 37% of the Reichstag seats.
