How normalized was antisemitism in Germany pre-Hitler?

I’ve heard two narratives regarding the Shoah; one is that Jews in Weimar Republic and even before were assimilated, integrated, and tolerated. And then out of nowhere, the Nazis came to power, used the Jews as a scapegoat, and did what they did. The other narrative is that antisemitism was socially and culturally widespread, simmering below the surface and frequently breaking out, and Hitler simply rode a wave on his path to power. Which narrative is more accurate, would you say?
