The March 5, 1933, elections had conferred legitimacy on Adolf Hitler's leadership. On 21 March 1933 the new Reichstag was constituted with an opening ceremony at the Garrison Church in Potsdam (Brandenburg). This ceremony was held to demonstrate unity between German fascism and Prussian elite and military. The recently appointed Chancellor, Adolf Hitler, appeared in a formal morning coat and humbly greeted the heavily decorated President Paul von Hindenburg. The 'Day of Potsdam' is a symbol for the disastrous relationship between National Socialism and Prussianism and lead to the Enabling Act of 1933, which gave the Nazis full legislative powers, even allowing deviations from the constitution. 

Frederick II of Prussia (January 24, 1712 – August 17, 1786) was a king of Prussia from the Hohenzollern dynasty, reigning from 1740 to 1786. Because of his accomplishments he became known as Frederick the Great (Friedrich der Grosse) and was also nicknamed der alte Fritz ("Old Fritz").
