His father, Alois was in his third marriage and was at the age of fifty-one when Hitler was born. Growing up, Adolf was hard to teach and never wanted to pay attention in school and usually got bad or average grades. In Hitler’s youth, he was commonly known as Adi. People soon found out that his father Alois beat him frequently. Alois died when Hitler was at the age of thirteen (1903).
Hitler’s rise to power began with the world wide depression, his loathing towards Jews, and ruling as a dictator in Germany. The biggest impact Hitler had on World War I was starting the war. His greediness and aspiration to be all powerful was his main flaw and resulted in his downfall. Hitler is important to history because he slaughtered millions of Jews in concentration camps and temporarily brought back stability to the German
His father died in 1903, and Adolf dropped out of school two years later. In "Mein Kampf" (My Struggle), the autobiography Hitler dictated while in Landsberg prison in 1924, he says the period in his life from 1905 to 1908 as " the happiest days of my life almost a dream." In those years he becamse obsessed with politics and developed his hatred for the Hapsburg monarchy. He applied to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, who rejected him, saying "test drawing unsatisfactory." In 1908, his mother died.
He caused the slaughter of millions of Jews and others whom he considered inferior human beings. Hitler was born in Braunauam Inn, Austria, on April 20, 1889, the son of a minor customs official and a peasant girl. A poor student, he never completed high school. He applied for admission to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna but was rejected for lack of talent. Staying in Vienna until 1913, he lived first on an orphan's pension, later on small earnings from pictures he drew.
Near the end of the war, Hitler was partially blinded when he was exposed to poison gas. In 1919, Adolf joined the German Workers’ Party (later renamed National Socialist German Workers’ – or Nazi – Party). In 1921, he was elected as the party’s chairman, or Führer. Later in 1923, Hitler led an uprising against the Weimar Republic, the German government. Unfortunately for him, the uprising failed, and he was sentenced to five years in prison.
When the Weimar Republic was on the verge of collapse in the fall of 1923 Hitler and the Nazis decided to stage an armed uprising in Munich on November 8. Because of his involvement Hitler was arrested and put on trial for treason. He was sentenced to prison for five years. The Beer Hall Putsch proved important in Hitler’s career. Rather than discouraging him, Hitler was reinforced by his trial and imprisonment.
It seemed that even his own people had turned against him. On July 20, 1944, one of Hitler's military officers had placed a bomb in a suitcase hoping to assassinate Hitler but the bombing didn’t go as planned. Hitler survives with minor injuries. Hitler had been in a relationship with the same person for several years by now but never married her until April 29, 1945 he had finally married Eva Braun. Unfortunately it didn’t last long, they were both found death the following day by suicide.
