Hitler

By nazieee Feb 23, 2014 385 Words
Was possibly the first media-driven politician in history to understand the power of film. All his public appearances were carefully choreographed. Learned of the armistice ending WW I (1918) while in a hospital from a sobbing pastor. Served as an army messenger in World War I.

Was interviewed by a psychiatrist in 1925 following the Beer Hall Putsch. The psychiatrist's final determination was "this man is crazy," but his notes were mislaid and forgotten. He suffered from many illnesses and medical conditions, including hypertension, headaches and heart trouble. Being gassed during World War I harmed his vision. After suffering from two episodes of blindness (one of which may have been hysterical), Hitler later suffered from pain in his eyes and blurred vision, as if "viewing objects through a thin veil.'' Beginning in the 1930s, he suffered from tinnitus. Towards the end of his life, Hitler was afflicted with Parkinson's syndrome. As a child, was once beaten into a 2-day coma by his father, Alois. Actually wrote a sequel to "Mein Kampf", but then, perversely, refused to allow it to be published. After the failed Beer Hall Putsch he retreated to the attic of a building and tried to shoot himself in the head. A policeman wrestled the gun away from him Was a big fan of American football.

Almost froze to death while sleeping on the streets in Austria. He was saved, ironically enough, by a Jewish charity group. From the moment of his ascension to power in 1933 to his death in 1945 there were seventeen attempts on his life. Tests he took showed that he had an IQ of 141.

Although Adolf Hitler was not at all a fan of Chaplin - in fact he had been misinformed that Charlie was Jewish, and therefore despised him - he was also well aware of how beloved Charlie was throughout the world at that time, and that was the reason he grew the Chaplin moustache: he thought it would endear him to the people. Hitler was voted Time Magazines man of the year in 1938

Adolph Hitler kept a framed photograph of Henry Ford on his desk and Ford kept one of Hitler on his desk in Dearborn, Michigan. Hitler had used in 'Mein Kampf' some of Fords anti-semitic views, and he always welcomed Ford's contributions to the Nazi movement.
