Adolf Hitler is arguably one of the most notorious dictators, initiated fascist policies in Nazi Germany that led to World War II and the deaths of at least 11 million people. Hitler was born in Braunau am Inn, a town in what is now called Austria on April 20 1889. He had 5 siblings, three of them died during their infancy, his childhood was very unstable moving from place to place frequently.Between the ages of six and eight, Adolf attended two different schools based upon where his family was living. He was rewarded and praised by his teachers for constantly having high marks and for acting properly in class. After finishing primary school his father enrolled him in a more prestigious school which focused more on science and technology. Although he had received stellar marks when he was younger, he wound up having to repeat a semester at this new school. His grades were never stellar again and bounced back and forth between poor and average for the remainder of his days there.On December 21, 1907, one of the greatest losses that Hitler felt in his life was the death of his mother to breast cancer. Adolf Hitler’s childhood losses could have played a role in his later personality and style.Hitler was not a rich or wealthy person, Later on in his life after opting out of school and service in the military he was trying to revolt against Bavarian government and gain attention to try to establish his nazi party. Hitler was convicted for treason but sentenced to a term of only five years imprisonment at Landsberg where he would remain only 8 months. Hitler’s political and social status went down because he was a respected and decorated military officer with narrowly escaping death in battle several times, and was eventually awarded two Iron Crosses for bravery. He rose to the rank of lance corporal but no further because he was wounded and temporarily blinded. Hitler was a stable comfortable living man economically he was always involved in a military type of job. In the 1920’s Germany was kind of in a state of depression. Public housings were full of wickedness and corruption where anything went, there were no real police restriction it was a time of chaos. The major trouble was unemployment, it was soaring and there was a low boil of resentment over the loss of the war (WW 1). Communism was beginning to take hold just as their “Great Depression” set in. Germany followed America right into the depression. Mark (their money) was worthless and it would have literally took wheel barrels of it full just to buy a loaf of bread. The low boil became a full blown situation. People began blaming the government, the Jews, the Communists, each other. Things got bad fast and critically. Hitler and his nationalist party pushed repeatedly and finally got a couple of people elected into the German version of parliament. Given an inch of room to establish and gain power, he and his group took a mile. They exploited weak clauses in the Weimar Constitution and before it was too late, Hitler had convinced the industrialists (who had all of the remaining money) to back him and to kick the elder statesman Paul von Hindenburg out of office. Hitler took charge. He gave the people what they wanted. He promised them a return to national greatness, jobs, a car in every garage (the Volkswagen “Bug”) and he believed that Germany could, given opportunity, rule the world. He began his conquest by ignoring the Versailles Treaty that ended the war, building a military and then taking over the Rhineland which incidentally is where you will find all of Germany’s natural resources. Then came the Sudetenland. After that, it seemed there was no stopping him.
