Why was Brüning known as the Hunger chancellor?
By recklessly adhering to his policy of deflation, Brüning accepted the impoverishment of a broad cross-section of the German population, which earned him the nickname of “the hunger chancellor.”
Who replaced Brüning?
Hindenburg dismissed Brüning in May 1932. Such an abrupt dismissal was fully legal under the constitution. He was replaced by Franz von Papen. Brüning remained an outspoken critic of Hitler and Nazism and in 1934 he fled to Holland and made his way to America.
