The Nazi leader was called “fuhrer”. Fuhrer in Germany simply means “leader” or “guide”. Adolf Hitler, who was a German politician and the leader of the Nazi party, was called fuhrer and he claimed it as his personal title. Adolf Hitler was mostly addressed as der Fuhrer which means “the leader”. He was officially given the title following his function as the head of the Nazi party.
Due to the association of this word to Adolf Hitler has made this word to be isolated and has made it a negative connotation. The tittle “Germanischer Fuhrer” (Germanic Fuhrer) was adopted by Adolf Hitler on the 23rd of June, 1941 in addition to his former tittle as Fuhrer. Hope you find this information very helpful.
