On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand tell us how the fire at the Reichstag in 1933 helped the Nazi Party gain a foothold in rising to power in Germany. A young Dutch communist, Marinus van der Lubbe, was tried and sentenced to death for starting the fire which was then used as evidence by the Nazi Party that communists were trying to overthrow the German government. Also on this day in 1951, the Twenty-Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified to limit Presidents to two terms, Roman emperor, Constantine the Great is born in 272 and fashion designer and businessman, Louis Vuitton, dies on this day in 1892.
