What did the Nazi Party stand for in the 1920s?
The need for 'living space' for the German nation to expand.
A strong Germany:
The Treaty of Versailles should be abolished and all German-speaking people united in one country.
The idea that there should be a single leader with complete power rather than a democracy.
The idea that the Aryan race was superior and Jews were 'subhuman'.
The idea that Germany should be economically self-sufficient.
Germany was in danger:
From Communists and Jews, who had to be destroyed.
In the 1920s, the Nazis tried to be all things to all people. The 25-Point Programme had policies that were.
Eg farmers should be given their land; pensions should improve; and public industries such as electricity and water should be owned by the state.
All German-speaking people should be united in one country; the Treaty of Versailles should be abolished; and there should be special laws for foreigners.
Jews should not be German citizens and immigration should be stopped.
A strong central government and control of the newspapers.

Intellectuals such as students and university professors
Nationalists and racists
Lower middle-class people such as plumbers and shopkeepers who were worried about the chaos Germany was in
Rich people worried by the threat from Communism
