Possibly fitting with the upcoming U.S. elections, this TED-Ed talk by Anthony Hazard and Alex Gendler explains how Adolf Hitler managed to be democratically elected simply by feeding people's anger and fears. The video was animated by Uncle Ginger.

Decades after the fall of the Third Reich, it feels impossible to understand how Adolf Hitler, the tyrant who orchestrated one of the largest genocides in human history, could ever have risen to power in a democratic country. So how did it happen, and could it happen again? Alex Gendler and Anthony Hazard dive into the history and circumstances that allowed Hitler to become Führer of Germany.
