The National Socialist German Workers’ Party commonly referred to in English as the Nazi Party was a far-right political party in Germany that was active between 1920 and 1945, that created and supported the ideology of Nazism. Its precursor, the German Workers’ Party (Deutsche Arbeiterpartei; DAP), existed from 1919 to 1920.
The Nazi Party emerged from the German nationalist, racist and populist Freikorps paramilitary culture, which fought against the communist uprisings in post-World War I Germany.
He created the party as a means to draw workers away from communism and into völkisch nationalism.
Initially, Nazi political strategy focused on anti-big business, anti-bourgeois and anti-capitalist rhetoric. Later party downplayed such aspects in order to gain the support of industrial entities. In 1930s the party’s focus shifted to anti-Semitic and anti-Marxist themes.
The several organizations in pre–World War I Europe adopted swastika. The Nazi Party used the symbol to symbolize German nationalistic pride.
