Adolf Hitler is from Austria. He was in the German war and got injured for a period of time. He wanted to become an artist but when he got rejected to go to art school twice. People wonder why Hitler was a horrible person. Maybe because people thought he was not good enough. Maybe because he just was not in anybody's liking.
During the 1930s, Hitler became Chancellor in 1933, wrote a book, and started a war with a Nazi party. Hitler also tired to overthrow the German government, but failed and was sent to prision.
