On this day the German Nazi Party held its first assembly under the Nazi name in a Munich brewery Staatliches Hofbräuhaus. It was formerly a small party named German Workers’ Party (Deutsche Arbeiterpartei). On this day it came forward with a new name – Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP).

At that time Hitler was only one of the party members, while its president was Anton Drexler. It is interesting that Hitler wanted the new name to be “Social Revolutionary Party”, but the proposal by Rudolf Jung was accepted and the concept of national socialism was added to the name.

At these early meetings, Hitler spoke at beer cellars and discovered his oratorical talent. What was originally a small party suddenly began to grow because people were attracted by his speaking skills, which was also a great discovery for him as well. The Nazi speeches were anti-Semitic, anti-capitalist, anti-liberal, anti-democratic, and particularly anti-Marxist.
