In English “paramount leader”, in German “der Führer”

June 16, 2019 § Leave a comment

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”),[1] 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.
