Adolf Hitler
was an Austrian-born German politician, who led the National Socialist German Workers Party. He was Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer of Germany from 1934 to 1945.

At 6:30 p.m. on April 20, 1889, he was born in the small Austrian village in Braunau just across the border from German Bavaria. Adolf Hitler would one day lead a movement that explored a person's family tree, making it a matter of life and death. However, Hitler's own family tree was quite mixed up and would be a lifelong source of embarrassment and concern to Hitler.


Interesting Facts

After being rejected a second time by the Academy of Arts, Hitler ran out of money. In 1909, he lived in a shelter for the homeless. By 1910, he had settled into a house for poor working men. Hitler was twice decorated for bravery, but only rose to the rank of corporal. When World War I ended Hitler was in a hospital recovering from temporary blindness possibly caused by a poison gas attack.

Sitting at a restaurant table in Munich in the summer of 1932, Hitler designed the successful Beetle design for Volkswagen (literally, the "car of the people"). In an era where only the most economic elite possessed cars, Hitler believed that all people should be able to own a car and additionally thought that a smart design could allow for reliability, enjoyment, and vacation travel. The name given to the car in 1938 was Kraft Durch Freude ("strength through joy car"). Hitler gave his design to the head of Daimler-Benz, Jakob Werlin, and stressed its importance. "Take it with you and speak with people who understand more about it than I do. But don't forget it. I want to hear from you soon, about the technical details."

Hitler as a child

Adolf Hitler was born at the Gasthof zum Pommer, an inn in Braunau am Inn, Austria-Hungary, on 20 April 1889 at 6:30 in the evening, the fourth child of six. His father, Alois Hitler, (1837–1903), was a customs official. His mother, Klara Pölzl, (1860–1907), was Alois' third wife. She was also his half-niece, so a papal dispensation was obtained for the marriage. Of Alois and Klara's six children, only Adolf and his sister Paula reached adulthood. Hitler's father also had a son, Alois Jr, and a daughter, Angela, by his second wife.Alois Hitler was an illegitimate child. For the first 39 years of his life he bore his mother's surname, Schicklgruber. In 1876, he took the surname of his stepfather, Johann Georg Hiedler. The name was spelled Hiedler, Huetler, Huettler and Hitler, had probably regularized to Hitler by a clerk. The origin of the name is either 'one who lives in a hut' (Standard Ger. Hütte), 'shepherd' (Standard Ger. Hütten 'to guard,' Eng. heed), or is from the Slavic word Hidlar and Hidlarcek. (Regarding the first two theories: some German dialects make little or no distinction between the ü-sound and the i-sound.)Allied propaganda exploited Hitler's original family name during World War II. Pamphlets bearing the phrase "Heil Schicklgruber" were airdropped over German cities. But he was legally born a Hitler and was also related to Hiedler via his maternal grandmother, Johanna Hiedler.

Competition was much tougher in the larger secondary school and his reaction to not being top of the class was to stop trying in school. His father was furious as he had high hopes that Hitler would follow his example and join the Austrian civil service when he left school. However, Hitler was a stubborn child and attempts by his parents and teachers to change his attitude towards his studies were unsuccessful.


The Conclusion

On April 30, 1945 Adolf Hitler died in his bunker ("fuhrer-bunker") under Berlin. He shot himself in the head and his new wife, Eva Braun, took a suicide pill. Senior SS officers took their bodies up to the streets and burnt them in the streets so as not to allow to happen to Hitler what happened to Mussolini. Adolf Hitler was appalled by the thought of what happened to his old hero, where Mussolini and his wife were strung upside down in a piazza in northern Italy and spat on/urinated on etc. by angry mobs. world war two ended with the unconditional surrender of the Axis powers. Germany surrendered on May 8, 1945, about a week after Adolf Hitler had committed suicide. The Official end of WW-II was on December 31, 1946 after the drops of the two atomic bombs on japan.
