The rise of hitler

             Profile of Aldolf Hitler (1889-1945).
             Adolf Hitler was born on 20th April 1889 in Austria. The family name was originally Schickelgruber. Adolf Hitler grew up with a poor record at school and left, before completing his grade, with the ambition of becoming an artist. He went to Vienna to realise his dream. He didn't succeed to obtain a scholarship in the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. In 1909 he moved to Vienna hoping to find work but in less then a year he lived in homeless shelters and eating at the charity soup-kitchens. He took occasional menial jobs and sold some of his paintings whenever he could. In Vienna he developed his hate concerning foreigners and Jews. .
             In 1913 Hitler moved to Munich in southern Germany. When war broke out in 1914 he immediately felt concerned and volunteered to join the German army. He fought bravely and was promoted to corporal. He won both the Iron Cross second class and first class. At the end of the war in 1918 Hitler was in hospital : he was wounded by a British gas attack.
             Hitler stayed in the army after the war and one of his work was to spy at local political groups. One such group was the German Workers Party. Hitler became interested and soon joined the party. Hitler's ability for publicity and speaker transformed it into the Nazi Party. In 1923 he led an attempt to destroy the Bavarian government but it didn't work. He went to nine months prison where he wrote his book Mein Kampf (My Struggle). .
             After 1925 he rebuilt the Nazi Party, deciding he had to obtain power by democracy rather than by force. The Wall Street Crash in 1929 and the later world-wide crisis hit Germany hard. Hitler used this situation to blame Jews and Communists, using them as scapegoats to gain support for himself. .
             He became Chancellor in 1933 and President in 1934 and used the title Der Fuhrer - leader. During the 1930s he 'Nazified' Germany, removing any potential opposition and establishing his ideas for a greater Germany.
