Rise of Dictators: Stalin, Mussolini & Hitler

In this video I (Abraham Darwish) talk about the rise of dictators in Europe post-WWI and this was a time period that took place between 1919 - 1939. The main reason behind dictators was nationalism. I talk about how Adolf Hitler and Mussolini used nationalism to encourage an authoritarian rule. I speak of the Soviet Unions advance and how they became the 2nd largest industrial nation. The Versailles Treaty put Germany in a bad situation and the people were sad because it disgraced the Germans and by 1923, 6 years before the great depression, the German Mark was so weak that 5 million German Marks was equal to a penny! Not only that, The Versailles Treaty was so unjust it blamed Germany for starting the war and forced Germany to pay reparations.
