I can help with half of this-the Nazi in Germany part. I read a book on this once-and the authors theory was:<br />
<br />
The German people were A)OBEDIENT. They obey authority figures. A lot of the parties were just everyday people, doing what they were being told to do by authority figures. We know Hitler enforced The Final Solution-which was his way of genocide cleansing-cause he believed The Aryans race were superior to Jews.<br />
<br />
B)PROPOGANDA. A lot of anti Jewish newsletters. Anti-Semitism. This propoganda may have convinced people that Jews were dirty. *cant remember rest*. But its a form of brainwashing people against the Jews.<br />
<br />
C)-****-I cannot remember point C. <br />
<br />
Hope the above helps*a little*.

This would take a whole book to answer properly!<br />
<br />
In short:<br />
<br />
* Unjust Versailles peace treaty of 1919<br />
* War reparations demanded of Germany by the allies to pay for WW1<br />
* Rampant inflation in Germany caused by the above, the currency became valueless.<br />
* The infamous/alleged 'stab in the back' of the German Army by the politicians which ended WW1<br />
* Appeal of Hitler and Mussolini, to make their nations feel proud again i.e. Nationalism<br />
* British and French 'appeasement' of the Fascists' territorial demands<br />
* the dullness and lack of initiative of the allied politicians of the period.<br />
* Failure of the 'League of Nations' which was toothless, partly because the US would not join it.<br />
* fear of another war, a repeat of the bloodshed of 1914-18, which dominated the allies' thinking.<br />
* US isolationism, leading Hitler and Mussolini to believe the US would not become involved in Europe again<br />
* The British and French not responding to Hitler's early moves eg the Rhineland, which emboldened him further<br />
<br />
There's loads more small points, but those are most of the main ones.
