Hilter's rise to power anniversary

A somewhat infamous anniversary this week, marking 90 years since Adolf Hitler’s ascension to the position of German chancellor.  At this juncture, is it any more clear why democracy fell apart so utterly across Germany in the 1930s?   How did a democratic government allow Hitler to seize power?  And are there still lessons to be learned in the context of the modern political sphere?    Benjamin Carter Hett answers those questions and more in his book: The Death of Democracy: Hitler's Rise to Power and the Downfall of the Weimar Republic.
