Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler was born on April 20,1889.

This was the beginning with horri ble plans for power and control of other people.Some of the things that Hitler d id throughout his life were very cruel things; first of all, he was a man who lo ved war and fighting. Second, he was in charge of putting all of the innocent Je ws into Concentration Camps and killing them. Third, he wanted one dominate race of all the same kind of people. Fourth, he had a life long obsession with dange r. Fifth, he blamed the Jews for the war debt and sentenced them all to die. So as you can see already Hitler was a very cruel person. The fact that he wanted one dominate race was unbelievably true. First of all, the fact he would kill everyone one way or another that didn't have blond hair and blue eye and was of German descent, was a frightening fact. The idea of this gives me quite a scare my self, because I have brown hair, and brown eyes and would I have been killed just because I did not Hitlers physical standards. Also Hitler himself did not have blond hair and blue eyes. Next, I don't think that you should judge anyone by the way they look or what they do; that is very wrong. Hitler's idea of one dominate race was a very bad one. Adolf Hitler was born in an Austrian town known as Braunau am Inn. Hitler was the son of a man named Alois. Alois Hitler's father was a Custom official's, and his mother was named Klara. Alois was illegi timate, first of all he used his mother's name, Schicklgruber until 1876, when he adopted the name Hitler. Adolf's father was very strict with him, and ignored him most of the time because Adolf liked to dream. As you can see Adolf did not idealize his father very much, and his death in 1903 actually came as a relief t o Adolf. Adolf really idealized his mother, whose death in 1907 had a traumatic effect on him. So as you can see Adolf lead a very mixed up childhood. As Hitler grew up, he failed as a student in the classical secondary sch ools. This led Hitler to new opportunities, for instance his desire to become an artist. Adolf tried to pursue this dream but, was unable to attain admission t o the Academy of Fine Arts. Since he was unable to do anything, he lead a shado wy, alienated existence in multicultural Vienna until 1913. Hitler was described as living his life in melancholy, aimlessness, and racial hatred. Also in Vien na he established his life long obsession with danger. Hitler was a failure at v irtually everything he tried in his early years as you can see. In 1913 Hitler went to Munich, partly to evade being drafted into the Au strian army. There he answered the call to colors at the outbreak of World War I and Served in the Bavarian Sixteenth Regiment on the Western Front. This turne d Hitler's life around, for example, he distinguished himself for bravery and wa s awarded the Iron Cross, First Class. For the first time in Hitler's life, he h ad found a home. He glorified, for example, the "raw majesty of life under fire, the beauty of comradeship, and the nobility of the warrior." His soldiery dream s of victory and fulfillment were shattered, however, by German defeat. He beca me convinced that Germany had been "stabbed in the back" by Jews and Marxists. S o now you can see that this started his extreme hatred if the Jewish people and the realization he needed to become involved in this problem. After the war, Hitler returned to Munich and joined a small National gro up called the German Workers Party. In 1920, this group changed it's name to the National Socialist German Workers Party, which became known as the Nazi party. Some of the things t Nazi's called for were the creation of a strong central go vernment, and the cancellation of the Versailles Treaty. So in conclusion Hitler became very involved in this new party. Hitler was a skillful schemer, politician, and organizer. For example, h e became leader of the Nazi party and built up membership fast. This came partly from his ability to stir street crowds with his speeches. Hitler had too much c

ontrol over the Nazi party; for example he attacked the government and assured t hat the Nazi party would assure jobs for workers and greatness for Germany. So i n concusion Hitler was proving to be a good organizer and politician. Hitler organized a private army of hoodlums who became known as storm tr oopers. They fought Communist and others who tried to break up the Nazi party. H itler established many of these. For example, in October 1923, he had 15,000 Naz i party members with machine guns and rifles. Next, to identify these men as spe cial Nazi party members, he gave them brown shirts with swastikas on them to dis tinguish them as part of the Nazi party. In 1923 Germany was deep in trouble; first it's money had lost almost al l of it's value because of severe economic problems. Second, France and Belgium had sent troops to occupy the Rhur valley of Germany. Third, the Bavarian state government in Munich was open to conflict with the national government in Berli n. Hitler regarded this quarrel as a chance to take over both the Bavarian and t he national German governments. So as you can see Hitler was starting to get him self into trouble. On November 8, 1923, at a rally in a Munich beer hall, Hitler proclaimed a Nazi revolution. The next day he tried to seize the Bavarian government in wh at became known as the Beer Hall Putsch. Hitler led more than 2,000 Storm Troope rs in a march against the government. This led to the police opening fire and ki lling 16 Nazis the plot failed. Hitler was arrested and sent to jail for 5 years in prison for treason. Asa result the revolution failed. Because some Germans agreed with his ideas, Hitler was freed after only nine months. Great changes had taken place in Germany since his imprisonment. Fo r example, most of the people had begun to get homes, jobs, and had hope for the future. Once Hitler was released, he reformed the Nazi party. They had been ban ned and many of the members had gone to other political parties. Hitler said tha t he would not let the Nazi group would not do anymore illegal acts, and the gov ernment made them reform. Hitler also made up a private army of elite guards, a fter his release, the Schutzstaffel, known as the SS. The SS was a battle ready army. In final conclusion after the release of Hitler he had reformed a plan to refine the party further. In 1930 a worldwide depression hit Germany. This first of all caused peo ple to face unemployment and hunger again. This depression started the same year that Germany agreed to pay the Young Plan which it had agreed to follow to pay off the war debt. Hitler's opposition to the plan made him known throughout the country. First, he led protest marches. Second, he organized mass meetings. Third, he made many sp eeches. In conclusion you can see Hitler was looking for someone to pay for what happened to Germany in the World War I. The war debt had to be paid. Hitler added his old arguments to the question of the war debt payment p lan. First of all he blamed Jews, and Communist, for Germany's defeat in World W ar I. He thought that now the Jews were plotting to cheat "true" Germans by dest roying the fruit of their years of struggle. Because of this Hitler promised to rid Germany of the Germans and the Communist, and reunite the parts of Europe in which German was spoken. As you can see Hitler already started to rise to grea t power, and bring about the expulsion of all Jews. In Conclusion you can now understand that the rise of Adolf Hitler marks a violent chapter in German history. He and his Nazi party still have fallowers today, hopefully not to the same end.
