Adolf Hitler did not live a very long life,
but during his time he caused such a great deal of death and destruction
that his actions still have an effect on the world nearly 50 years later.
People ask what could've happen to this small sickly boy during his childhood
that would've led him do such horrible things? For Adolf it might have
been society, rejection from his father, failure as an artist or was he
born to hate?
Adolf was born in Braunau, Austria in 1889.
His father, Alois was a minor customs official, and his mother was a peasant
girl. Adolf attended elementary school for four years and entered secondary
school at the age of eleven. Adolf's dreams of becoming an artist did not
match the government official job his father wanted him to have. These
fights over what he wanted to be, lead Adolf to lose interest in getting
good grades and dropped out at the age of sixteen.
When his father died Adolf roamed the streets
of Linz dreaming of his future as an artist. He attended a great deal of
operas and loved the musical work by Robert Wagner.
At 18, Hitler tried to enter the Academy
of Fine Arts in Vienna but was rejected twice. His failure put a great
deal of frustration on him. He saw himself as an artist who was rejected
by "stupid" teachers. Adolf later moved to Vienna to find a way to make
Hitler would rather do odd jobs such as
shoveling snow, or beating rugs instead of getting a regular job. Since
he had no set income he was forced to move into the ghettos and became
somewhat of a bum. He finally got a job painting postcards and advertisements.
He had little money still, and spent most his time reading and thinking
about what he read.
While Hitler was in Vienna, he learned
things which he later used to destroy the world. He learned that the finest
thing for man to do was to conquer foreign countries, and that peace is
a bad thing because it makes man weak. He was also convinced that Germans
are the master race, even though he himself was Austrian. Hitler also took
part in political ideas which were later used in Germany. He believed a
political party must know how to use terror. He also discovered the value
of appearance in politics. He thought only a man who could attract masses
of people by his eloquence could succeed in politics. Hitler later became
the greatest public speaker in Europe.
In Vienna Hitler also learned of his hatred
for Jews. "Wherever I went I began to see Jews, and the more I saw, the
more sharply they became distinguished in my eyes from the rest of humanity.
I grew sick to the stomach, I began to hate them. I became anti-Semitic."(1)
In the spring of 1913 Hitler left for Munich, Germany at the age of 24.
He left Vienna to get away from the mixture of races and to escape the
military that he had to serve in with Jews.
The First World War in 1914 was Hitler's
chance to let go of his frustrating childhood. Hitler proved to be a brave
soldier and was wounded twice and decorated twice for bravery with the
Iron Cross. Hitler, like many other Germans didn't believe they were defeated
by Great Britain and the U.S. in 1918. They thought they had been stabbed
in the back by the Jewish slackers. After the war Hitler found himself
unemployed once again and began looking for a place in politics because
he felt he could do something for the country. Shortly after Hitler returned
to the army and was assigned to spy on political parties which the generals
thought were communist, socialist, or pacifists. Hitler was ordered to
investigate a small political group called the German Worker's party. The
next day he received an invitation to join the group. He decided after
two days of questioning himself that he should join. After enrolling, Hitler
later made it the largest political party in Germany, and became known
as the Nazi Party. In 1921, the two years after he joined the party, he
became the Fuhrer which is the leader of the Nazi Party. By 1923, Hitler
believed he was strong enough to try and conquer Germany. He planned a
revolt in Munich to bring down the German republic and then to make himself
the dictator of Germany.
Hitler couldn't have had this revolt at
a better time because Germany was in an economic crisis. The businesses

This is what it might have been like if you were one of the troops at Pearl Harbor. This attack was important because it led to other events in World War II. Some of these events were America\'s involvement in the war and the dropping of the Atom Bomb at Hiroshima. Between the years of 1920 and 1940 dictators came to power in German
Of all the examples of injustice against humanityOf all the examples of injustice against humanity in history, the Jewish Holocaust has to be one of the most prominent. In the period of 1933 to 1945, the Nazis waged a vicious war against Jews and otherlesser races. This war came to a head with the Final Solution in 1938. One of the end results of the Final Solution was the horrible concentration and death camps of Germany, Poland, and other parts of Nazi-controlled Europe. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, people around the world were sho

The word \'holocaust\' is a conflagration, a great raging fire that consumes in it\'s path all that lives. In the years between 1933 and 1945, the Jews of Europe were marked for total annihilation. Moreover, anti-Semitism was given legal sanction. It was directed by AdolfHitler and managed by Heinne Himmler, Reinhard Heydrich and Adolf Eichmann.

In fact I came into this book with the same attitude that I usually do when faced with Holocaust stories, that of Yes it was horrible, but I know all about it already. This reading isn\'t going to do anything to my attitude. I, as I always am in thinking such a thought, was wrong.

Great InflationGreat Inflation annon In late-1922 the German government were forced to ask the Allies for a moratorium on reparations payments; this was refused, and she then defaulted on shipments of both coal and timber to France. By January of the following year, French and Belgian troops had entered and occupied the Ruhr. The German people, perhaps for the first time since 1914, united behind their government, and passive resistance to the occupying troops was ordered. A government-funded strike began as t

Causes of World WarCauses of World War Causes of World War Out of all the wars that the world has gone through, none has been more devastating as world war II. But what caused this war? Well, world war II had six major causes: anger over the Versailles Treaty, the failure of peace efforts after world war I, the rise of Fascism, the goals of Hitler, the isolationism by America and Britain, and the re-armament of Europe. This paper will go over each of these causes individually and then draw some conclusions about w
