October 2nd 1847 - Paul von Hindenburg is born


October 2nd 1847- Birth of Paul von Hindenburg, one of the most controversial figures in modern German history. The officers son from Eastern Prussia seen here at his re-election as president in 1932 had already made his career during World War I as the so-called "victor of Tannenberg" as well as the head of the Supreme Command alongside Erich Ludendorff. Hindenburg was the most prominent advocate of the “stab in the back legend” and also did not deny his monarchical-conservative roots as President . Revered as "Papa Hindenburg" by a large number of the people he failed to recognize the danger posed by Hitler and paved the way for his autocratic rule.
