40 Amazing Photos Capture Street Scenes of Germany in the Early 1930s

The 1930s was one of the most tumultuous decades for Germany. Already crippled by the debt they accrued from World War One, the European nation faced even tougher times following the ripple effects of Wall Street’s stock market crash.

With such instability and poverty, the population was receptive to the words and promises of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, setting in motion a chain of events that would greatly–and tragically–alter the course of history.

Here below is a set of amazing photos from Jim Payne that shows street scenes of Germany in 1931.
