Infamous Dachau concentration camp is created... Adolph Hitler becomes dictator...
Item # 654747
March 21, 1933
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 21, 1933
* Beginning of Dachau concentration camp
* Adolph Hitler becoming dictator
* Prohibition ending
The front page has a three column healdine: "REICHSTAG MEETING TODAY IS PREPARED TO GIVE HITLER FULL CONTROL AS DICTATOR" with subheads.This was when Hitler officially became the dictator of Germany. 1933 was a very tumultuous time in Germany with the recent appointment of Adolph Hitler as Chancellor. Things would only get worse before the outbreak of World War II in 1939.
Perhaps the most significant report is another front page heading (see photos) on the creation of the Dachau concentration camp just outside Munich (not mentioned by name). It was the very first of many to be created & would be the model for all others. Much text on these two events. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Thirty-six pages, a few cutouts within but none on front page or where the mentioned report continues, light toning at the margins, otherwise good.
