Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler was a German political and government leader.

And he is one of the 20th century's most powerful dictators, when

he ruled Germany from 1933 to 1945.He turned Germany into a

powerful war machine and provoked World War II in 1939,when

he invaded Poland. He built the Nazi party into a mass movement.

For sometime he dominated most of Europe and North Africa. He

caused the slaughter of millions of Jews and others whom he

considered inferior. Adolf Hitler was born on April 20,1889 in

Branau am Inn, Austria. Adolf's father, Alois Hitler was a minor

customs official. He died in 1903.Adolf's mother, Klara Hitler was

a peasant girl. She died in 1907.Hitler did not do well in school

and he dropped out of high school. He was eager to become an

artist, so he applied to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna in 1907

and 1908 but he was rejected both times. During his spare time he

read alot, developing anti-Jewish and antidemocratic views. When

World War I started Hitler was rejected by the Austrian Army, but

accepted by the German Army. He served as a messenger on the

Western Front for most of the war, taking part in some of the

bloodiest battles. He was wounded and received the Iron Cross for

bravery. But he was never promoted higher than lance corporal.

But after the war he found himself unable to find a job. After

Germany's defeat in 1918 he returned to Munich, remaining in the

army until 1920.In September 1919 he joined the nationalist

German Workers' Party. In April 1920 he went to work full time

for the party, now renamed the National Socialist German

Workers' Party or the Nazi party. In 1921 he was elected party

chairman with dictatorial powers. He now became known as Der

Fuhrer. The Nazis aim was to organize all Germans into one

nation. And to rid the Jews of German citizenship and eliminate

them completely. He organized meetings with his personal

bodyguard force, the Storm Troopers. In November 1923,at a time

of political and economic chaos, he led an uprising or Putsch in

Munich against the postwar Weimar Republic, the German

government. This was known as the Beer Hall Putsch. However the

Putsch collapsed. Hitler was arrested and sentenced to five years in

prison. He only spent nine months in prison. During this time he

spent writing his autobiography, Mein Kampf which means My

Struggle. In it was a plan to conquer Europe and much of the

world. The failure of the Beer Hall Putsch taught Hitler that the

Nazi Party must use legal means to assume power. Hitler was

released as a result of general amnesty in December 1924.He then

rebuilt his party without interference from those whose government

he tried to overthrow. When the Great Depression struck in

1929,Hitler explained it as a Jewish-Communist plot. This was

accepted by many Germans. Hitler promised a strong Germany,

jobs, and national glory. He attracted millions of voters. Nazi

representation in the Reichstag, the German parliament, rose from

12 seats in 1928 to 107 seats in 1930.The Nazi Party was becoming

widespread and popular and was recognized as a legitimate party.

On January 30,1933,the president of Germany, Paul von

Hindenburg named Adolf Hitler chancellor of Germany. Once in

power, Hitler quickly established himself as a dictator. Hitler

called his government the Third Reich. In 1933,Hitler's

government passed the Enabling Act which permitted Hitler's
