Great Depression

On October 24, 1929, the "Black Thursday", the most momentous stock market crash in history occurred at New York's Wall Street: the Great Depression shook the planet and crashed countless people and entrepreneurs in financial ruin. Horrendous unemployment and social misery hit millions on both sides of the Atlantic.

In the United States, especially farmers and migrants were affected by the great depression, the Bonus and Hunger Marchers took to the streets for government support. In Germany, the economic crisis mainly helped the right-wing extremist parties, the NSDAP benefited critically from the dissatisfaction among the citizens.
