Hitler Tamed By Prison
The New York Times
December 20, 1924
Berlin, Dec. 20.–Adolph Hitler, once the demi-god of the reactionary extremists, was released on parole from imprisonment at FortressLandsberg, Bavaria, today and immediately left in an auto for Munich. He looked a much sadder and wiser man today than last Spring when he, with Ludendorff and other radical extremists, appeared before a Munich court charged with conspiracy to overthrow the Government.
His behavior during imprisonment convinced the authorities that, like his political organization, known as the Volkischer, was no longer to be feared. It is believed that he will retire to private life and return to Austria, the country of his birth.
