Childhood Hitler was born the 20 th of April 1889 in Braunau, a town in Austria. Hitler was the son of Alois Schickelgruber and Klara Hitler. At the age of five Adolf would have a brother named Edmund and his sister Paula. By the age of six “Adi” as his parents used to call him, entered first grade in the public school in Linz Austria. Soon Adolf's father would retire. Here he joined the schools choir and was seriously thinking of becoming a priest when he was older. He would spend his time reading western cowboy books that talked about how the white men would always defeat Native Americans. He would become obsessed with this book, and he would continue to read this book even as a Fuhrer. His brother Edmund would die, at the age of six, this was a great hit for Adolf. To make it worse, Edmund was buried in a cemetery next to his house.
Adolescence Hitler and his father Alois always discussed about his career choice. Adolf wanted to become a artists and his father wanted him to become a civil servant. In high school Adolf had good grades, but was still falling math. In January, 1903 Alois Schickelgruber died of a lung hemorrhage followed by Hitler’s mother in1907, leaving him alone with enough money to live well. He moved to Vienna and applied for the School of Fine Arts twice and was rejected. He started an irregular live, painting views of the city in posters and selling them to passers, sleeping on different hostels everyday. During this time Hitler developed half formed ideas of politics and philosophy as he read unsystematically becoming passionate about social issues. After the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, Hitler joined the Bavarian army. Escaping death a number of times he was given two Iron Crosses for bravery. After four years of being in the trenches Adolf was wounded and blinded for some time because of chlorine gas. As he recovered from his injuries some Jews were leaders of abortive revolutions that inspired, in part, his hatred towards Jews and communists as well.
Rise to power Hitler volunteered to WWI and was a highly recognized veteran soldier. After WWI he joined a moribund political party: German Working Party, which turned into the Nazi Party. He tried to overthrow the Weimar Republic with Mussolini support in the “Beer Hall Putsch”, but failed and went to jail for 5 years were he wrote the “Mein Kampf”, selling more than copies. After reorganizing the party he stared recovering power through politics, taking advantage of the economic crisis; he ran for president and lost with 44% votes in the second round against Paul von Hindenburg, and became Chancellor in 1933 After the death of Paul von Hindenburg Hitler assumed the position of head of state in 1934 and started his dictatorship
Philosophy and Principles Mostly expressed in the “Mein Kampf”, orally and by propaganda National Socialism: human behavior pattern description. Totalitarian, Anti-Semitist, Nationalism, militarism, and anti-communist Master Race : Aryans Right-wing extremist Pan-German ideology Anti-Capitalist Superiority lead to Natural Selection

Methods Blitzkrieg (Lightening war): initial bombing surprise attack followed by inmediate mobile forces; used to prevent coherent opposite counter-attacks. Propaganda: its goal was to impose gently and make attractive for people the totalitarian system and to idolatrize Hitler.
Death Hitler, finally accepting the German defeat, asked for a reliable method of suicide from a physician, Werner Haase. He recommended combining a dose of cyanide with a gunshot to the head. Hitler began to show signs of paranoia thinking that the cyanide capsules were fake so he tested them on his dog Blondi, and it eventually died.

After this Eva and Hitler said goodbye to the staff. 15 hours and 30 minutes into April 30th, Hitler shot himself, and Eva drank a poison that killed her. They both were sitting next to each other in a sofa, with Eva at her left and Hitler slumped over his table dipping in blood. After their death members of the SS carried their corps outside and started burning them later the Russians entered the bunker killing the SS and kept the bodies in Moscow and burnt them in 1970.
