(1889 - 1945) Dictator of Germany and Nazi Party leader, Hitler's bloody rise to power, his military seizure of most of Europe and North Africa and his genocidal racial policies culminated in suicide in his Berlin bunker as Russian troops approached. Important typed D.S., 1p. large 4to., [Berlin], January, 1943, a draft of a law passed in the Reichstag on Jan. 25, 1943 extending the life of the Reichstag for a further four years. In full: 'The Greater German Reichstag has passed the following law, which is hereby promulgated: Sec. 1 The electoral term of the current Reichstag is extended until January 30, 1947. Sec. 2 The Reich Minister of the Interior issues the legal and administrative regulations necessary for the implementation of this law.' At top left, a manuscript note reads: 'Not announced' Signed by Hitler at bottom, also signed by HERMANN GORING (1893-1946) as Reichsmarshall and HANS LAMMERS (1879-1962) as Minister and Chief of the Reich Chancellery. File holes at left margin, else fine. The Reichstag had become essentially a rubber stamp device allowing Hitler to pass laws without its approval - an arrangement put in place by the 'Enabling Law' of 1933. This law was passed to maintain the status quo giving Hitler full and complete power.
