And I’d add that one of the most common misconceptions is people thinking that Hitler was democratically elected to the position of Reichskanzler.

He was appointed by President Hindenburg, who at that moment in time, was fast fading into senility and Hitler owed his position to a shabby political deal between two former Chancellors (von Schleicher and von Papen).

Yep. That’s also a misconception. And the Nazis never got a majority at the polls either. They were actually slipping from their peak vote popularity when Hindenburg who as you correctly note was senile appointed Hitler Chancellor. It’s interesting to think that Hitler and FDR’s time in office pretty much had no overlap give or take a couple months in 1933(remember Presidents used to be inaugurated in March) and Hitler killed himself 18 days after FDR died in Georgia. But that’s another story.
