Note 009
by Joachim C. Fest

Hitler was not, as he misleadingly says in Mein Kampf, member number 7 of the DAP. This was his membership in the party's working committee. Also he was the 55th member, not the 555th. For the sake of its 'image', the DAP's membership list in fact began with number 501.

From Chapter 2 ,The Drummer , Part 1 of The Face Of The Third Reich by J.C. Fest
