HolocaustHistory.net - Holocaust Centre, Beth Shalom
President Paul von Hindenburg dies. The popular and highly respected General Field Marshall was 85 years old, and was the second President of the Weimar Republic. Initially Hitler used the good name of Hindenburg, but the political activity of the ageing President rapidly declined in the first year of the Nazi's rule. After Hindenburg's death Hitler becomes Head of state and the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces. He now has no constitutional opposition to his dictatorship.
