Nazi Germany refers to Germany from the start of Adolf Hitler's government in 1933. After Hitler was appointed chancellor of Germany on January 30, 1933, the country was governed by the National Socialist German Workers Party, or "Nazi Party" (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei), led by Adolf Hitler as chancellor in 1933, and, from 1934, as Führer (Leader). In Germany, the common term is the Third Reich (Drittes Reich). Nazi Germany is perceived as a depreciative expression to denominate this period, which is officially the German Reich ("Deutsches Reich").
