Adolf Hitler Early Adulthood

When Hitler was a child, he had a lung infection and at the age of 16 he was forced to
leave school because of the sickness and poor work. The reason why he doesn’t like
Jewish people is because when he was 17 year old, his mom had breast cancer and was
very sick. She called a Jewish doctor name Edward Bloke and on the next day, December
21, 1907, she died because of a pill. After his mom’s death, he move to Vienna and lived
in shelters. In Vienna there were a lot of anti-Semitism people making Jewish people look
bad and that was when Hitler started being prejudice to Jews. He was rejected twice by
the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (1907–1908). Hitler said he first became an anti-Semite
in Vienna which had a large Jewish community, including Orthodox Jews; a Jewish
person who is very religion. After the second refusal from the Academy of Arts, Hitler
gradually ran out of money. By 1909, he sought refuge in a homeless shelter, and by the
beginning of 1910 had settled permanently into a house for poor working men. He made
spending money by painting tourist postcards of Vienna scenery. His anti-Semitism
during this period was likely non-existent, since a Jewish resident of the house named
Hanisch was helping him sell his postcards. It was in Vienna that Hitler became an active
anti-Semite. He was slowly influenced over time by the writings of the race ideologist
and anti-Semite.

Entry into politics


In July 1919 Hitler was voted to me Verbindungsmann (police spy). After the first World
War, Hitler stayed in the army. He marched in the famous march of the murdered Prime
Minister of Bavaria named Kurt Eisner. When he got suppression Bavarian Soviet
Republic he took part in “National Thinking”. In 1920, Hitler joined the National
Socialist German Workers Party known as the Nazis. Hitler became leader of the Nazi
party and built up membership quickly, mostly because of his powerful speaking ability.
Hitler only served nine mouths out of the five-years. In March of 1933 Hitler persuaded
the German parliament to pass the Enabling Act, which made the Chancellor Dictator of
Germany and gave him more power than the President. Soon President Hindenburg died,
and Hitler manages the office of President with the office of Chancellor. In 1935 the anti-
Jewish Nuremburg laws was passed on Hitler's order. A year later, with Germany now
under his total control, he sent troops into the Rhineland, which was a violation of the
World War I Treaty of Versailles. At that time Hitler and Joseph Stalin made a non-
aggression treaty which was later unilaterally broken by Hitler. In September of 1939
Hitler ordered the invasion of Poland.
Hitler’s rise to power
During the 1920s, Hitler hugely expanded the Nazi Party, and though he lost the
presidential election in 1932 against Hidenburg, he became chancellor by that year.
He then silenced all opposition, suspended the constitution, burned down the
Reichstag building, and brought the Nazis to power. He then killed the SA using the SS,
Hitler’s personal “Hitler’s helpers” on ‘The Night of Long Knives” in 1934.
In conflict with the Versailles Treaty, Hitler rearmed Germany, established a
Rome-Berlin “axis” with Mussolini, and made a “Greater Germany” with Austria. He
also demanded the return of Danzig and free access to East Prussia which began WWII
when Poland refused.
He established the Nuremburg Laws and other things which were intended to
exclude Jews from society. Hitler then accelerated this process by building ghettos,
labour, concentration, and death camps.
After the Allies invaded Germany, Hitler hid in his Bunker, an air-raid shelter
under the Chancellery in Berlin. With Russians so close, he quickly marries his mistress,
Eva Braun, in the presence of the Goebbels family, who then poisoned themselves. Hitler
and his wife then also then committed suicide on August 30, 1945.
