Adolf Hitler was born on April 20,1889. This was the beginning with
horrible plans for power and control of other people.Some of the things that
Hitler did throughout his life were very cruel things; first of all, he was a
man who loved war and fighting. Second, he was in charge of putting all of the
innocent Jews 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 danger. 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 didnt 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
dont think that you should judge anyone by the way they look or what they do;
that is very wrong. Hitlers 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 Hitlers father was a Custom
officials, and his mother was named Klara. Alois was illegitimate, first of all
he used his mothers name, Schicklgruber until 1876, when he adopted the name
Hitler. Adolfs 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 to 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
schools. 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
to the Academy of Fine Arts. Since he was unable to do anything, he lead a
shadowy, alienated existence in multicultural Vienna until 1913. Hitler was
described as living his life in melancholy, aimlessness, and racial hatred.
Also in Vienna he established his life long obsession with danger. Hitler was a
failure at virtually everything he tried in his early years as you can see.
In 1913 Hitler went to Munich, partly to evade being drafted into the
Austrian 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
turned Hitlers life around, for example, he distinguished himself for bravery
and was awarded the Iron Cross, First Class. For the first time in Hitlers life,
he had 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
dreams of victory and fulfillment were shattered, however, by German defeat. He
became convinced that Germany had been stabbed in the back by Jews and
Marxists. So 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
group called the German Workers Party. In 1920, this group changed its name to
the National Socialist German Workers Party, which became known as the Nazi
party. Some of the things t Nazis called for were the creation of a strong
central government, 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,
he 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 control over the Nazi party; for example he attacked the government and
assured that the Nazi party would assure jobs for workers and greatness for
Germany. So in concusion Hitler was proving to be a good organizer and
Hitler organized a private army of hoodlums who became known as storm
troopers. They fought Communist and others who tried to break up the Nazi party.
Hitler established many of these. For example, in October 1923, he had 15,000
Nazi party members with machine guns and rifles. Next, to identify these men as
special Nazi party members, he gave them brown shirts with swastikas on them to
distinguish them as part of the Nazi party.
In 1923 Germany was deep in trouble; first its money had lost almost
all of its 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 Berlin. Hitler regarded this quarrel as a chance to take over both
the Bavarian and the national German governments. So as you can see Hitler was
starting to get himself 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
what became known as the Beer Hall Putsch. Hitler led more than 2,000 Storm
Troopers in a march against the government. This led to the police opening fire
and killing 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.
For 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
banned and many of the members had gone to other political parties. Hitler said
that he would not let the Nazi group would not do anymore illegal acts, and the
government made them reform. Hitler also made up a private army of elite guards,
after 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
people 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. Hitlers opposition to the plan made him known throughout
the country. First, he led protest marches. Second, he organized mass meetings.
Third, he made many speeches. 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
plan. First of all he blamed Jews, and Communist, for Germanys defeat in World
War I. He thought that now the Jews were plotting to cheat true Germans by
destroying 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
great 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.
