Adolf Hitler enjoyed special treatment while jailed in 1924, being allowed hundreds of visitors – sometimes unsupervised – including some 30 to 40 to celebrate his 35th birthday, according to documents that have surfaced from Landsberg prison. The documents provide an intriguing window into his early days as Nazi leader. Hitler was imprisoned in Landsberg after the Nazi’s abortive bid to seize power in 1923 in the notorious “beer hall putsch” coup attempt in Munich. It wasn’t until a decade later, in 1933, that the Nazis would eventually come to power through parliamentary elections.
