Adolf Hitler- The Fuhrer
Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was an Austrian who led the National Socialist German Workers Party. He became Chancellor of Germany in 1933 and Führer in 1934, combining the offices of President and Chancellor into one using the power vested in him by the Enabling Act. He ruled until his suicide in 1945.
His father, Alois Hitler, (1837–1903), was a customs official. His mother, Klara Pölzl, (1860–1907), was Alois' third wife. His wife name was Eva Braun (married on April 29, 1945) The name "Adolf" comes from Old High German for "noble wolf" (Adel=nobility + wolf).
FOUR HALLMARKS OF EFFECTIVE LEADER IN
Hitler served in France and Belgium in the 16th Bavarian Reserve Regiment (called Regiment List after its first commander). He was a runner, the most dangerous job on the Western Front, and was often exposed to enemy fire. Hitler was twice decorated for bravery. He received the Iron Cross, Second Class, in 1914 and Iron Cross, First Class, in 1918, an honour rarely given to a Gefreiter.
2. WILL POWER
As a boy, Hitler said he was often whipped by his father. Years later he told his secretary, "I then resolved never again to cry when my father whipped me. A few days later I had the opportunity of putting my will to the test. My mother, frightened, took refuge in the front of the door. As for me, I counted silently the blows of the stick which lashed my rear end.” This insidance shows the courage and will power of the young Hitler.
After being rejected a second time by the Academy of Arts, Hitler ran out of money. In 1909, he lived in a homeless shelter. By 1910, he had settled into a house for poor working men. He struggled as a painter in Vienna, copying scenes from postcards and selling his paintings to merchants and tourists.
Hitler had long admired Germany, and during the war he had become a passionate German patriot, although he did not become a German citizen until 1932. Hitler has a vision to see the Germany as the only powerful country in the world; and he devoted his whole life to this vision.
