This chapter examines societal violence in Germany during the Weimar Republic. It discusses the concept of ‘front generation’ popularized by the radical right in the 1920s and the role of the young people in the rise of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP), more commonly known as the Nazi Party. It also investigates the reasons why the youth glorified violence after 1918 and describes the crises and individual life stories during the Weimar regime including the assassination of Hans Paasche.

Keywords:   societal violence, Weimar Republic, front generation, Nazi Party, Hans Paasche
