Ansbach is 25 miles southwest of Nuremberg. Hitler had celebrated his 44th birthday on April 20th. Born in Braunau, Austria, he was an intense nationalist, closing his letter "with heartfelt German greetings" in Suetterlin "Old German". In January 1933, Hindenburg had named Hitler Chancellor. In a new election (Hitler had lost the 1932 presidential election), Hitler gained control of the Reichstag and, in March, was granted by it dictatorial powers for four years by constitutional amendments. When Hindenburg died in 1934, Hitler united the presidency and the chancellorship, assuming the title Der Führer. Two items.
