Transcript of Adolf Hitler - Hero or Villain?

ADOLF HITLER By Eilidh Fruin Baptised a Catholic, Adolf Hitler was born on the 20th of April, 1889, to Klara Hitler and Alois Hitler, in Braunau am Inn, Austria. A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY Early Life In 1898, the Hitler family moved to Linz, the capital of Austria. Hitler wanted a career in visual arts, and fought lots with his father who wanted him to join the Habsburg Civil Service. Bibliography http://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007430 The Swatstika Adolf Hitler After his father died, Hitler eventually managed to persuade his mother to follow his dream of becoming an artist. When his mother was dying of breast cancer in the Autumn of 1907, Hitler took the entrance exam to the Viennese Academy of Fine Arts, And failed to gain acceptance. In early 1908, some weeks after his mother's death, in December 1907, Hitler moved to Vienna, In the hope of renewing efforts to gain acceptance to the Viennese Academy of Fine Arts. Hitler lived in Vienna between February 1908 and May 1913. He had grown up in a middle-class family, with few contacts with Jewish people. The legacy of the Vienna years is not as clear as Hitler depicted it in his political autobiography. His poverty and residence in homeless shelters began only a year after he arrived in Vienna, And after he had wasted a generous inheritance left by his parents, And rejected all arguments of surviving relatives and family friends, he embarked upon a career in the civil service. World War I In May 1913, Hitler left Vienna for Munich, And when war broke out on August 1914, he joined the Sixteenth Bavarian Infantry Regiment, serving as a dispatch runner, Dispatch Runner a (very dangerous) job that involved carrying messages from the regimental headquarters to the front-line. Hitler was an able, courageous soldier, And received an Iron cross for bravery, but did not rise above the rank of Lance Corporal. Wounded twice, he was gassed four weeks before the end of WWI and spent three months recovering in a hospital in Pomerania. Temporarily blinded and driven to rage by the abortive November 1918 revolution in Germany as well as the military defeat, http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/hitler.html Hitler was convinced that fate had chosen him to rescue a humiliated nation from the Versailles Treaty and the Jews. In the summer of 1919, Reichswehr assigned Hitler to 'educational' duties, Mostly spying on political parties in the overheated atmosphere of post-revolutionary Munich. Hitler was sent to investigate a small group of nationalistic idealists (which had approximately 40 members), Known as the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, or National Socialist German Workers Party. He entered the party on the 16th September 1919 and had imposed himself as its chairman by July 1921. Information Pictures World War II On September 1st, 1939, German armies invaded Poland. The first part of WWII was dominated by German Blitzkrieg tactics - Blitzkrieg A tactic based on speed and surprise. Alois Hitler Hero or Villain? Klara Hitler Hitler as a baby Poland was overrun in less than 1 month, Denmark and Norway in 2 months, Holland, Belgium, Luxemburg, AND France in 6 WEEKS. After France fell in June 1940, only Great Britain stood firm. Hitler's first setback was the Battle of Britain, Causing the planned invasion of the British Isles to be postponed. Hitler turned to the Balkans and North Africa, http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/balkans http://www.gradesaver.com/a-separate-peace/q-and-a/what-is-blitzkrieg-62585/ Balkans The countries occupying the Balkan Peninsula: Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania, Greece, & Turkey in Europe. GLOSSARY Mussolini (Left) and
Hitler (Right) His armies rapidly overrunning Greece, Yugoslavia, the Greek island of Crete and driving the British out of Cyrenaica. In which the R.A.F (Royal Air Force) stopped Luftwaffe (the German Air Force) from securing aerial control over the English Channel, On June 22nd 1941, Hitler invaded Soviet Russia. Hitler thought that Soviet Russia's destruction would prevent Great Britain from continuing the war with any hope of success. He was convinced that once he kicked the door in, "the whole rotten edifice [of communist rule] would come tumbling down." The war against Soviet Russia was to be an anti-Bolshevik crusade, a war of annihilation in which the fate of European Jewry would finally be sealed. Bolshevik A Russian communist Hitler as a soldier during World War 1 At the end of 1941, Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese and the United States joined the war. In August 1945, America dropped the first atomic bomb on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Killing 150,000 - 246,000 innocent people, And officially ending the war. The Allies had won. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_bombings_of_Hiroshima_and_Nagasaki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler http://news.iskcon.com/node/1632 http://max-q.tumblr.com/post/32371547675/adolf-hitler-as-a-baby-look-how-harmless-lil http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alois_Hitler http://www.comicvine.com/klara-hitler/29-62797/ http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/hitler.html http://www.militarytourstore.com/orgimain/wwi/german-ww1-iron-cross-2nd-class-with-ribbon.html http://sp.uconn.edu/~wwwcoh/GLOSSARY.HTM http://www.ipernity.com/blog/evangrek63/@/page:13:18 HERO OR VILLAIN? he SIX MILLION Jewish people MURDERED Between 1939 and 1945, ONE AND A HALF MILLION of which were children. I do not think that you could POSSIBLY MURDER SO many INNOCENT people, And still be thought of as a hero, But at the time of World War II, many Germans probably thought he was, Because of all the great things he done for Germany before the war - He led Germany out of the Great Depression, Created autobahns, And got work for many unemployed people, But he did more BAD than GOOD, Which is why not many people still think of Hitler as a hero, Was Adolf Hitler a HERO or a VILLAIN? Well, And it is also why I think of him... As... A... VILLAIN. And gave the Germans someone to blame for all their troubles. Hitler's Death Around midnight on April 28th, 1945, Hitler married his wife, Eva Braun (February 6th, 1912.) http://www.historylearningsite.co.uk/death_of_adolf_hitler1.htm http://yb5jo.free.fr/2WW/Travaux/Les%20Hommes/B/Braun%20Eva/BraunGal.htm He and Eva committed suicide on the 30th of April, 1945 just 10 days after Hitler's 56th Birthday, And 2 days after they were married, To avoid being captured by the Red Army, And their bodies were burned. http://www.merriam-webster.com/concise/red%20army http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eva_Braun http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler Red Army Army of the Soviet Union Great Depression A period during the 1930s when there was a worldwide economic depression and mass unemployment Autobahn A motorway in German-speaking countries http://www.thefreedictionary.com/autobahn http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Great+Depression http://au.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080224185912AAufBGJ http://www.pearlharboroahu.com/ http://www.2worldwar2.com/kg200.htm
