April 10th 1932 - Hindenburg


April 10th 1932: Paul von Hindenburg wins the absolute majority during the second ballot, and is re-elected as President. As a candidate of the Social Democrats and centrist parties he defeats Adolf Hitler, who receives only 36.8 percent of the vote. Brunings politics of emergency decree strengthens the position of the re-elected conservative President's against the Reichstag. This autocratic position of the President makes it easy for the enemies of democracy. In the end they destroy the system of the Weimar Republic from within. Together with Franz von Papen who in January of 1933 becomes Vice-Chancellor in Hitler's cabinet Hindenburg tries to involve the Nazis in the parliamentary system. The attempt fails. The appointment of Hitler as the chancellor of the Reich leads Germany straight into the murderous dictatorship of the III. Reich.
