Adolf Hitler 1889-1945

Adolf Hitler, a charismatic, Austrian-born demagogue, rose to power in Germany during the 1920s and early 1930s at a time of social, political, and economic unrest. Failing to take power by force in 1923, he eventually won power by democratic means. Though once in power, he eliminated all opposition and launched a program of world domination and elimination of the Jews, spreading his ideas through his book, Mein Kampf. His "1,000 Year Reich" barely lasted 12 years and he died a broken and defeated man.

Klara Polzl, the mother of Adolf Hitler, was born in Spital, Austria, in 1860. She married Alois Hitler, a senior customs official, in 1885. The couple had five children but only Adolf and a younger sister, Paula, survived to become adults. Two of his siblings died from diphtheria when they were children, and one died shortly after birth. Young Adolf was showered with love and affection by his mother. Alois Hitler, the illegitimate son of a housemaid, was born in Strones, Austria in 1837. He left home at the age of thirteen to serve as a cobbler's in Vienna. He did not enjoy the work and five years later joined the Imperial Customs Service.

I think these things made him the ruler he was, it made him racist and classicist. He thought of himself as a detriment to society and he didn't want anyone ever to be like him that why he exterminated anyone in society that was like him. He had his perfect race of blonde hair blue eyed Germans. Were nothing like him they were the furthest people he could find from himself and he killed everyone else that had any of his characteristics. I think this is proof that he was insane and that the people were stupid because they believed everything he said and got him to power. Also it was proof that he also was pretty smart because he knew what the people wanted to hear and he could rally a could like no one else also he knew his flaws very well to bad anyone else who had those flaws were killed.
