German nationalist poet and publicist. Eckart was an early member of the Nazi Party, and saw himself as a mentor to the young Adolf Hitler. Eckart provided the means for Hitler to enter Munich society, and gain power for the Nazis. Eckart coined the phrase "Deutschland Erwache!" ("Germany Awake!"), a rallying cry for the Nazis, and he instituted the use of the term "Fuehrer" ("Leader") for Hitler. Hitler dedicated the second volume of his book "Mein Kampf" ("My Struggle") to Eckart.
