Führer (German pronunciation: [ˈfyːʁɐ], spelled Fuehrer when the umlaut is not available) is a German word meaning “leader” or “guide”. As a political title it is associated with the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Nazi Germany cultivated the Führerprinzip (“leader principle”), and Hitler was generally known as just der Führer (“the Leader”).
One of the Nazis’ most-repeated political slogans was Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer – “One People, One Empire, One Leader”.
One Belt, One Road, One [paramount] Führer.
