Adolf Hitler was an Austrian-born German politician who was the dictator of Germany from 1933 until his suicide in 1945. He rose to power as the leader of the Nazi Party, becoming the chancellor in 1933 and then taking the title of Führer in 1934. He was afterwards both head of state and head of government. During his dictatorship, he initiated World War II in Europe by invading Poland on 1 September 1939. He was actively involved in military operations throughout the war and was central to the perpetration of the Holocaust, the genocide of about six million Jews and millions of other victims.

There have been several direct references to him in xkcd, even two with his name in the title, and three where someone travels in time in order to kill him and avoid the war.
