Hitler


1. THE BEGINNING

At half past six on the evening of April 20th, 1889 a child was born
in the small town of Branau, Austria. The name of the child was Adolf
Hitler. He was the son a Customs official Alois Hitler, and his third wife
Klara.

As a young boy Adolf attendated church regulary and sang in the local
choir. One day he carved a symbol into the bench which resembled the
Swastika he later used as the symbol of the Nazi party. He was a pretty
good student. He received good marks in most of his classes. However in
his last year of school he failed German and Mathematics, and only
succeeded in Gym and Drawing. He drooped out of school at the age of 16,
spending a total of 10 years in school. From childhood one it was his
dream to become an artist or architect. He was not a bad artist, as his
surviving paintings and drawings show but he never showed any originality
or creative imagination. To fullfil his dream he had moved to Vienna the
capital of Austria where the Academy of arts was located. He failed the
first time he tried to get admission and in the next year, 1907 he tried
again and was very sure of success. To his surprise he failed again. In
fact the Dean of the academy was not very impressed with his performance,
and gave him a really hard time and said to him "You will never be
painter." The rejection really crushed him as he now reached a dead end.
He could not apply to the school of architecture as he had no high-school
diploma. During the next 35 years of his live the young man never forgot
the rejection he received in the dean\'s office that day. Many Historians
like to speculate what would have happened IF.... perhaps the small town
boy would have had a bit more talent....or IF the Dean had been a little
less critical, the world might have been spared the nightmare into which
this boy was eventually to plunge it.

2. WORLD WAR I

While living in Vienna Hitler he made his living by drawing small
pictures of famous landmarks which he sold as post cards. But he was
always poor. He was also a regular reader of a small paper which claimed
that the Araban race was superior to all and was destined to rule the
world. The paper blamed Communists and Jews for all their problems and
hitler agreed to those views. Hitler agree with most of the points made in
the publication. He continued to live a poor live in Vienna and in 1913
decided to move to Munich. Still living in Vienna and being Austrain by
