Führer is the German word for leader. The word Führer is most often used to name Adolf Hitler. Hitler was the German Chancellor during the Third Reich. After the death of Reich President Paul von Hindenburg in 1934, he declared the office of President vacant and made himself Führer (both Head of State and Head of Government). He used the word Führer for his title Führer und Reichskanzler (Leader and Reich Chancellor).
