1 HITLER WHY DID HE LOOSE IT? By: Monika

2 Family history  Father dies at the age of 63 of possible cardiac arrest or pulmonary hemorrhage  Was assumed to be an alcoholic  Never had or was treated for syphilis, but Hitler thought his family had hereditary syphilis and that’s how his wife got it.

4 Hitler's health early on  HEART  Moderate hypertension  Progressive left ventricle hypertrophy  Mild heart attack in august of 1941  All lead to atherosclerosis of the coronary artery

5 Cont.  INTESTINAL  Gastrointestinal distress  Bothered many by his flatulence  He attributed the abdominal pain and intestinal distress to annoyance with his generals  Possible irritable bowel syndrome

6 Cont.  EAR, NOSE, AND THROAT  Suspected to have tuberculosis  Temporary lost hearing from a bombing on July  Had ringing episodes many times after but was treated  Laryngeal polyp removed, caused by voice strain

7 His downfall  Notices of tremors in 1942  Had trouble hiding the involuntary shaking of the left hand, would ether hold it close to his body or with his right hand  As the disease progressed to his left leg he would often cross his legs  In 1944 others noticed he had to have his legs elevated as he laid down   parkinsons#adolf-hitlers-parkinsons parkinsons#adolf-hitlers-parkinsons

8 Cont.  Developed an awkward gait and couldn’t sit on his own  After July 20 th 1944 (the assassination attempt) his neurological condition greatly improved  In mid august he relapsed and just got worse from there on  Professor Max de Crinis head of the department of psychiatry and neurology from the university of Berlin is the first to make the diagnosis of Parkinson's

9 Cont.  Professor Max de Crinis head of the department of psychiatry and neurology from the university of Berlin is the first to make the diagnosis of Parkinson's  But Hitler never found out because Himmler forbade any other discussion  He was eventually (1945) diagnosed with the idiopathic type of Parkinson's (without identifiable family history)

10 Cont.  Hitler was very stubborn and never cooperated with tests like x-ray for diagnostic uses  The only disease that was definitively diagnosed with was Parkinson's

11 Did his diseases cause his crimes?  Lots of pain and distress cause fatigue and confusion  Everyone kept Hitler's ailments a secret  But he was so determined to fulfill his mission that there was no notices of pain or fatigue causing an issue

12 Hitler's Zeitangst (Fear)  With much fear of not fulfilling his mission he rushed and decided many destructive actions  Most of his errors occurred between 1939 and 1945  Invasion of Poland  The attack on Russia  The declaration of war against the US  The holocaust

13 My personal opinion  He was very sick for very long  I'm surprised he lasted as long as he did  He should of killed himself a long time ago  He really did have a sad life  He also had genital deformity (one testicle and a leaky bladder), something that intense will make any man angry
