Here's a taster:

How did the Reichstag Fire help Hitler?
Hitler used the Reichstag fire to convince everyone that
there was a real threat of a communist revolution. Hitler
used the confusion and unease that people felt to
consolidate his position.
1. Emergency powers: Hitler persuaded
Hindenburg to pass the `Law for the
Protection of People and State'. This
ended freedom of speech, freedom of
association and freedom of the press.
2. Election success: Hitler called fresh elections. He
used his new powers to make life difficult for non-Nazi
candidates. Hitler increased his share of the vote and
thereby gave his party more power in parliament.
