It was a period of time which Germans suffered from the rapid increase of prices of goods. Firstly it happened because Germany needed to give reparations to other countries because of the lose of WWI and Germany tried ways to do it. One of the ways they took was to print money, which lead to the increase of prices of goods because the value of money went down. Many people were unable to buy a piece of bread with their money. As a result, it was a disaster in Germany history.
