Scarce RS Germany 1934 Commemorative 8-5/8" Plate Honoring the German Military Officer & Statesmen, Paul Von Hidenberg
Paul Ludwig Hans Anton von Beneckendorff und von Hindenburg known generally as Paul von Hindenburg, (2 October 1847 – 2 August 1934) was a German military officer, statesman, and politician who served as the second President of Germany from 1925-34. Hindenburg retired from the army for the first time in 1911, but was recalled shortly after the outbreak of World War I in 1914. He first came to national attention at the age of 66 as the victor of the decisive Battle of Tannenberg in August 1914. As Germany's Chief of the General Staff from August 1916, Hindenburg's reputation rose greatly in German public esteem.
Hindenburg retired again in 1919, but returned to public life in 1925 to be elected the second President of Germany. In 1932, Hindenburg was persuaded to run for re-election as German President, although 84 years old and in poor health, as he was considered the only candidate who could defeat Adolf Hitler. Hindenburg was re-elected in a runoff. He was opposed to Hitler and was a major player in the increasing political instability in the Weimar Republic that ended with Hitler's rise to power.
