Research Paper On Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler is a man that is well known throughout the world. Hitler was a man
with big goals in life. What he wanted to do was create a nation that would be perfect and better than any other nation that there is in the world. Hitler would do basically anything to achieve his goal on becoming the head of this perfect nation that he imagined. To help him in achieving his goals was his mind. He was very intelligent and had very good organization skills. For someone trying to stop Hitler from doing what he was doing, they’d have no change in succeeding.The big question is, what made him the man that he was?
Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th, 1889 in Austria-Hungary. He was part of a family of six including him. His father was Alois Hitler, and his mother was Klara Polzl. Hitlers siblings were Alois, Angela, and Paula. Just a few years later when Adolf was born, his family moved to Linz, Austria where he first started elementary school. During Hitlers time in elementary school he received outstanding grades rather than bad ones. He was one of the smartest kids in his elementary school too. But when he got into high school, that’s when it started to go downhill. This was because his of his strict father interfering with him in his goal to become a professional artist. Nothing persuaded him in becoming an artist other than him liking to draw. Adolf’s father
wanted him to become a civil servant instead of being an artist. A civil Servant was a person in the public sector employed for a government department or agency. As time went on, Hitlers father passed away in 1903 and Hitler dropped out of school, then went to Vienna in 1907 because he wanted to carry on with his art career. But to do this, Hitler needed a loan from his mother to move to Vienna. Once his mother gave him the loan, he went to apply to the city’s renewed Academy of Fine Arts. Sadly enough, Hitlers entry was rejected because his work was unsatisfactory. When he found this out, he was devastated. He said, “I was so convinced that I wold be successful that when I received my rejection, it struck me with a bolt from the blue.” (Giblin 5) This affected Hitler mentally and he kept to himself for a while. At the same time, Hitler didn't want to tell his mother that he failed into getting into the school so he stayed in Vienna. Later on something even worse happened. When Hitler was younger his mother had cancer but with the right treatments, it went away. A few years passes and her cancer came back. This caused Adolf to return home but to come to bad news. When he finally arrived home, he was told by his mother’s doctor; Dr. Bloch said that she was dead. His words that moment were, “I had honored my father,” “but my mother I had loved.” (Giblin 6) Hitler also said that he lost the most important person that he ever cared for in his life, referring to his mother. Because of this tragedy, Hitler didn't know what to do anymore.
Leading into further detail, Hitler made plans to return back to Vienna with his best friend August Kubizek. Staying in Vienna for a while, Hitler’s hatred towards non-Aryans grew greatly. This was because non-Aryans were people that believed in a different religion and beliefs. Hitler didn't like other people that did not follow his practices. Later on in 1913 he moved to Munich, Germany. This was because the Austrian army called him to serve but they
didn’t find him fit enough to do the necessary work. The army then placed him as messenger in the Western Front during most of the time of World War 1.
Thereafter Hitler came back from war from the surrender of November 1918, Germany was in a very bad economic situation. The Treaty of Versailles that Germany had to sign, held the nation for all the responsibilities for World War 1. In 1919. Adolf Hitler started going to this political party called...
