Adolf Hitler is quoted as saying: "If I can send the flower of the German nation into the hell of war without the smallest pity for the spilling of precious German blood, then surely I have the right to remove millions of an inferior race that breeds like verminÐ'..." Hitler, the man who caused turmoil among the German nation articulated a desire to be rid of all Jewish people once and for all. Hitler was an anti-Semitic, meaning he abhorred the Jewish race. Hitler sent his precious German nation into the hells of war to achieve a task that would eventually end in the adverse way he desired.

In his youth, Adolf Hitler wanted nothing more then to achieve the task of becoming a professional artist. At a young age he applied to an art school in Vienna. When he was deeply displeased when he was rejected from the school. Hitler soon became aware that the person who rejected him from the art school was Jewish. This rejection set off a chain of events that fueled his anger towards the Jewish people. While observing society in Vienna, Hitler began to notice a different type of people in the streets who looked completely different from the normal German. He began to notice that these people wore different clothing and hairstyles from others in the city. Soon, he began to learn that these people were the Jewish people. He resented the fact that they looked different from normal society, as Hitler believed that everyone should look the same.

While in Vienna, Hitler also began to research the government and economy. He noticed flaws in the economy and government of Vienna and began to form questions. Hitler began to research the last names of the people who wrote the news papers he read and noticed that they were predominantly Jewish. There were flaws in everything about Austrian society which lead to the formulation of the question as to why there was a problem in everything he looked at and everything he observed. Even the art work he observed had flaws. With this in mind, Hitler began to research the people behind everything that he had observed in society and came to the conclusion that at least one Jew was involved one way or the other in every flaw he had noted. Because of this key factor, he blamed the flaws of the Austian nation on Jewish people. He claimed the Jewish people were completely different from society and had absolutely

different view points on everything. Hitler concluded that this alone was the cause of everything that had gone wrong in the government. In everything he observed something was wrong, and thus it must be the Jews that made it wrong.

For centuries the Jewish people have been hated for a number of things. Jews were blamed for the death of Christ and since then have been separated into ghettos to sperate them from the rest of the population, by this time majoritively Christian. Jewish people were not even allowed to become German citizens. During the nineteenth century the spread of nationalism began to give way to new ideas to anti-Semitism. The Jewish people were still hated but now to an even greater degree. Comte de Gobineau and Housten Stewart Chamberlain both agreed that the German people were part of the Aryan race. The Aryan race was a myth formulated by these two men stating that the German people, by blood, were a separate race that possessed superior qualities to the rest of the world's races. These ideas began to cause these two men to become anti-Semitic. Hitler began to study these different ideas formulated from the anti-Semitic group and also studied the ideas of Comte de Gobineau and Housten Stewart Chamberlain. From this he acquired

his ideas of an Aryan race. When Hitler eventually came into power he used these ideas to create his perfect Germany.

Hitler became interested in politics after his research. He wanted to know the reasons behind everything gone wrong in politics. He became interested in how the government he was in worked. Since there were flaws in everything and all evidence of why was pointed towards the Jewish people, he came to the conclusion that the government was wrong because of the Jews involved in it's setup. The evolution of the man Adolf Hitler was to finally become had began to show. Hitler was now beginning to become part of the conservative nationalist group that hated the Jews and every one who was not German. He wanted a reason to hate the Jewish nation and so he observed the world press which he so loved. The more and more he read and probed, the more he began to see the distaste and everything in it. Hitler even observed art, being an artist himself he did not want his beloved art to be destroyed by a race in which he began to see as inferior to everyone else on the planet.

Along with his other studies, Hitler began to read literature on Social Democracy and began to notice scientific flaws in the literature around the concept. Hitler eventually came to learn that social democracy was predominantly run and made up of primarily Jews. He then began to argue with the social democrats, deciding to talk to them and try to get his point across that their doctrine was inadequate. Hitler was presistant in his beliefs, never ceasing to argue with you what he believed was right until you concurred.. The social democratic Jews at times ended the arguments by giving into what Hitler was saying, though the next chance he got to talk to them they would not remember a thing and ramble on with what he originally believed. Hitler began to hate the Jewish race even more. The question was then posed: What to do with a race that was slowly destroying society as we know it?

Hitler was now fully immersed in this question, later referred to as "the Jewish question". This
