He is in prison but it looks nice and comfortable with paintings and flowers. Hitler had visitors. The putsch failed because Hitler was not supported by people who had promised to support him such as Von Kahr, the Bavarian Prime Minister. The putsch was not supported by the army or police. In fact, the army crushed the putsch easily and many Nazis were killed and Hitler fled. The putsch was badly planned. Hitler was imprisoned and put on trial. He turned this around as he used the trial to make a huge nationalist speech which impressed many people. He gained national publicity. Whilst in prison, he wrote Mein Kampf and it gave him time to re-evaluate his tactics. He received a 5 year sentence but he only served 9 months.

  7. 7. I showed my report to Goering. ‘That’s sheer rubbish,’ he said. ‘One sack of firelighting material! No, we must say one hundred sacks.’ ‘ But that is impossible, Minister. No one can believe that a single man can have carried all that.’ ‘ Nothing is impossible. We must say there were ten or even twenty men. The whole thing was a signal for a Communist uprising.

  9. 9. I showed my report to Goering. ‘That’s sheer rubbish,’ he said. ‘One sack of firelighting material! No, we must say one hundred sacks.’ ‘ But that is impossible, Minister. No one can believe that a single man can have carried all that.’ ‘ Nothing is impossible. We must say there were ten or even twenty men. The whole thing was a signal for a Communist uprising. They must have come through the tunnel.’ Goering’s press officer describing his conversation with Goering shortly after the Reichstag Fire on 27 February 1933. Source Not useful? Useful? Knowledge The source is not useful because it does not tell you about how Hitler came into power. By this time, Hitler had done well in the elections and had been appointed Chancellor. The source is very useful as it shows how keen Goering was to put the blame of the fire on to the Communists. He is pushing the idea that the fire is the start of a Communist uprising. Goering wants people to believe that it was the Communists. This was a very good move by the Nazis because it gave them the excuse to arrest Communist leaders and get rid of the opposition and to pass an emergency law which banned freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Hitler drew up the Reichstag Fire Decree 28 th February. It allowed the police to ban meetings and arrest anyone they wanted. This is why they wanted to blame the Fire on the Communists.
