In November 1918 the armistice ended the war. The kaiser abdicated and a German Republic- the Weimar Republic- was proclaimed. It was blamed for signing the Treaty of Versailles and all the problems that resulted from it. These early problems were solved and after 1923 it looked as if the Weimar Republic would bring wealth and stability to Germany. However it failed to deal with the depression of 1929 and as conditions grew worse, the German people turned to more extreme parties. By 1933 the Nazi Party had taken control and the Weimar Republic had ended.
