POLITICAL NEWS by Penelope Min

Adolf Hitler, THE DER FUHRER, who was he? -by Penelope Min Adolf Hitler, one of the most famous yet despised political leader in the world, made a big impact in the world. Adolf Hitler was brought to life in April 20th, 1889. He was born in a small Austrian town. Hitler was an intelligent student who was admired by other students. He was really devoted to God, and considered becoming a monk. His intelligence didn't last very long. When he went to secondary school, he stopped trying hard because he wasn't the top student of the class. His strict father, Alois Hitler, was infuriated because he had high hopes for Adolf Hitler. If that wasn't bad enough, Hitler lost many of his friends because he always ordered them around. He later started spending time with people younger than him because they would listen to him. As a child, he admired Otto von Bismarck, who was the first chancellor of the German Empire. Hitler was also fascinated by the world of art. He wanted to become on artist, while his dad wanted him to join the civil service. Their argument didn't stop until 1903, when his dad passed away. His power began to rise when he was chosen by president Hindenburg to be the chancellor of a Nazi in 1932. He became the leader of the Nazi Party in 1920, and the Fuehrer of Germany in 1933. Hitler was imprisoned because of his attempt to overthrow the government. He was supposed to serve 5 years at prison, but only stayed for 9 months. His 9 months of life wasn't so bad because he had the key to books. He wrote a book called Mein Kampf, which translates to My Struggle. This book contained all of his ideas on politics. He once said a quote, “As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.” He calls himself a Christian, but he killed numerous numbers of people. Adolf Hitler is despised by most population because of all the horrible things he did. Benito Mussolini of Italy, who was he? -by Penelope Min Benito Mussolini, who was given with the name Benito Amilcare Andrea Mussolini, was born in July 29th of 1883. He was born in northern central Italy. Since his father was a blacksmith and the employment expectations in that area were poor, his family moved to Switzerland. In Switzerland, he was involved in socialist politics. In the year of 1904, he moved back to Italy. He became a journalist in the socialist press. Unfortunately, he wanted Italy to join World War I therefore he had to take a break from socialism. He was chosen to join the Italian army in September 1915. During March of 1919, Mussolini made the Fascists Party which excited many jobless war veterans. He coordinated the veterans into an army, which were known as Black Shirts. They victimized their political rivals. In the year of 1921, the coalition government summoned them to join them. The Black Shirts barged into Rome and Mussolini launched himself as the one and only who was able to restore order. King Victoria Emmanuel of Italy asked Mussolini to form a government. He slowly started taking control of democratic government, and crowned himself as a dictator. He was then known as the Il Duce. He wanted to make Italy a strong European country. His government was strong due to the strong control of the state, and from Mussolini's sincere devotion toward the government. In 1935, he took over Ethiopia, (It was known as Abyssinia back then). Mussolini, influenced by Hitler, established anti-Jewish enactment in Italy. In June of 1940, he declared war on Great Britain and France. This showed their military weakness, therefore was defeated a number of times. During the month of July in 1943, the Allied arrived in Sicily. Mussolini was dethroned and was sent to jail by the former colleagues in the Fascist government. In September 1943, Italy signed an armistice with the Allies. He was later rescued by German commandos and was handed a new government to lead. Unfortunately, he only had little power. As the Allies came toward Italy, Mussolini fled to Switzerland. An Italian partisan captured him and was shot in April 28th of 1945. CLASSIFIED

Two people are talking about how Hitler won’t be able to regain his power. The man is looking down on Hitler, saying that Hitler won’t be able to start a war. I agree with the man because people won’t follow Hitler after all the cruel things he did. He also doesn’t have the money or the resources to start a war!
