1932: Adolf Hitler obtains German citizenship by naturalization, which allows him to run in the 1932 election for Reichspräsident, the president of the Reich. Hitler would end up coming in second to incumbent President Paul von Hindenburg, but his strong showing established him as a force in German politics.
