I belive Hitler was angry because of the Treaty of Versailles and the great depression was the reason that the German people fell for his trick.

Not quite, the willingness to take action is directly linked to how much you have to lose. Upperclasses, successfull, wealthy people have more to lose than those lower down. Hitler had nothing for long enough, and won enough through "gambling" and luck to not worry about what he lost. Genocide is a sure-fire way to get your country into hot water and invaded by others, unless you are stronger than the others, or you are not used to "grand politics" - Hitler was the kumped up corporal with nothin to lose, because nothing he had was his, it was all won and could just as easily be lost.
