German military officer, statesman, and politician who served as the second President of Germany during the period 1925–34.

Hindenburg retired from the army for the first time in 1911, but was recalled shortly after the outbreak of World War I in 1914. He first came to national attention at the age of 66 as the victor of the decisive Battle of Tannenberg in August 1914. As Germany's Chief of the General Staff from August 1916, Hindenburg's reputation rose greatly in German public esteem. He and his deputy Erich Ludendorff would then lead Germany in a de facto military dictatorship throughout the remainder of the war, marginalizing German Emperor Wilhelm II as well as the German Reichstag. In line with Lebensraum ideology, he advocated sweeping annexations of territory in Poland, Ukraine and Russia in order to re-settle Germans there.

Hindenburg retired again in 1919, but returned to public life in 1925 to be elected the second President of Germany. In 1932, although 84 years old and in poor health, Hindenburg was persuaded to run for re-election as German President, as he was considered the only candidate who could defeat Hitler. Hindenburg was re-elected in a runoff. He was opposed to Hitler and was a major player in the increasing political instability in the Weimar Republic that ended with Hitler's rise to power. He dissolved the Reichstag (parliament) twice in 1932 and finally, under pressure, agreed to appoint Hitler Chancellor of Germany in January 1933. In February, he signed off on the Reichstag Fire Decree, which suspended various civil liberties, and in March he signed the Enabling Act of 1933, which gave Hitler's regime arbitrary powers. Hindenburg died the following year on 2 August 1934, after which Hitler declared the office of President vacant and made himself head of state.

Source Notes

Arthur Blackwell quotes Barbault for Hindenburg's father's journals. (He adds that Barbault had 2:30 PM given in "PAT" as B.C.) Andre Barbault in personal correspondence with LMR May 2001 states that 3:00 PM was in his father's diary, according to Ritter.

(Wemyss FN No.129 and Sabian Symbols No.459 gave 2:59 AM. In BJA, 5/1918, Sepharial had 8:08 AM Berlin time)
