Transcript of Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler dropped out of high school
because of his mother's death,
he later moved to Vienna.
Later on he tried to receive an admission for the college of Arts, however, he had failed twice in the examination.
He had strong hatred towards the Jews, his extreme political views resulted in many of his friends walking away from him.
He then settled in Munich in 1913 while World War I was on the burst. Hitler joined the Bavarian army.
Early Life of Hitler
Throughout this war Adolf Hitler was gassed and severely wounded, he was an average soldier since he did not exceed beyond the rank of a Corporal because he was an austrian in the german army.
He was never known for expressing any forms of leadership. However, he did receive the Iron Cross for Bravery.
The War made Hitler more patriotic for his country. And so, he began to blame the German defeat on the betrayal by the Jews and the Marxists.
Also, on his way back from the War he befriended members of the German workers' party who also were very patriotic.
Early Life (continued)
In 1920 the German Workers' party renamed themselves The National Socialist German Workers, otherwise known as the Nazi party; in 1921 Hitler was named the Chairman of the Nazi Party.
Many say that Hitler became very successful in his plans due to his impressive ability of being a very convincing public speaker. Due to his advanced speeches, Hitler was able to gather many supporters for his Party.
On Nov. 8, 1923, Hitler attempted to overthrow the Republican government. On regaining their freedom they used the Reichswehr army to defeat the secret and successful plan.
The Nazi Party
Hitler escaped, but was soon arrested and sentenced to five years in the Landsberg fortress for his actions. However, he only served nine months.
His attempts to overthrow the government made Hitler well known across Germany. In prison he wrote his world wide famous book, Mein Kampf (my struggle), to Rudolf Hess.
In this book, Hitler expressed his strong hatred towards Jews, His addiction to power, as well as what he thought was the perfect people for a perfect civilization, which he named, Aryans.
The Nazi Party (continued)
Hitler's Rise to Power (part 1)
Germans were burdened by payments to the victors of World War I, and threatened by hyperinflation, political noise and confusion, and a possible Communist takeover, Hitler, rushed and offered (people who take the blame for bad things) and solutions.
The main reason why Hitler rised to power because he promised them what they wanted and needed to hear.
The weimer republic was not able to solve the problems of depression. So when Hitler made promises to solve the problems(nazi party).People in Germany were tired of their poor quality of life. Hitler promised to make Germany proud again - it was exactly what people wanted to hear. Hitler pledged something for every part of Germany society;for the farmers, unemployed workers and middle class.

Hitler's rise to Power (part 3)
He gained help from bankers and industrialists with his dangerous anti-Communist promises to control trade unionism.
Hitler had an evil understanding of the study of thinking and behavior, and he was a master of maneuver.
After buying and owning German citizenship through the state of Brunswick, he ran in the presidential elections of 1932, losing to the popular war hero Paul von Hindenburg but strengthening his position by falsely promising to support Chancellor Franz von Papen.
The Nazis were elected as the largest party in Reichstag (July, 1932)
Hindenburg offered Hitler a subordinate position in the cabinet.
Hitler's rise to power (part 4)
Hitler held out for the chief post and for sweeping powers.
In the middle of collapsing parliamentary government and fights between Nazis and Communists, Hindenburg strongly encouraged Hitler to be chancellor of a supporting group cabinet, however he refused to take power.
Support of Alfred Hugenberg led Hitler to take office on Jan. 30.
Hitler began to plan plots, he strongly believed in his mission to achieve the so-called supreme race of white, non-Jewish, non-coloured people, which he termed the "master race."
Legally coming in to power led him to use brutal violence towards the people he did not approve of.
He blamed the Communists for a fire in the Reichstag on Feb. 27. On March 5, the Nazi's won a bare majority of Reichstag seats in the elections.

Hitler in Power (part 2)
From the first days of Hitler's "Third Reich" political opponents such as von Schleicher and Gregor Strasser, who had previously resigned from the Nazis were murdered or put in jail.
Socialists and Communists, as well as others were arrested or killed.
Government, law, and education became important priorities of National Socialism.
Heil Hitler! became the required form of greeting
Hitler in Power (part 3)
Hitler threatened smaller nations into making land-based give backs and played on the desire for peace and the fear of Communism among the larger European states to reach his goal of expanding his country.
To delay his plans, he claimed to only be fixing the Treaty of Versailles.
Germany started to become friends with Spain and Italy. Hitler used the issue of "being mistreated" .Germans in Czechoslovakia to push through the Munich Agreement, in which France, and Italy agreed to German addition of the Sudetenland of Czechoslovakia in 1938.
Hitler in Power (part 4)
Hitler's nonaggression agreement in Aug 1939 with Stalin allowed him to enter Poland on Sept. 1, this sparked the beginning of World War II.
This is while Stalin attacked eastern Poland; however, Hitler honored the agreement only until he found it convenient to attack the USSR on June, 1941.
In early 1943 he refused to admit defeat at the fight of Stalingrad, which resulted in the deaths of huge numbers of German troops.
As the war itself turned against Hitler, his mass extermination of the Jews, was speeded up in order for them to exterminate as many Jews as they could.
World War II
By July 1944, the German military situation was desperate, and a group of high military and civil officials attempted a murder.
Hitler escaped a bomb explosion with minor injuries; most of the plotters were executed. Although the war was hopelessly lost by early 1945, Hitler insisted that Germans fight on to the death, which was clearly pointless.
During the final German collapse in April 1945, Hitler criticized Nazi leaders who insisted on negotiating, and remained in Berlin when it was invaded by the Russians.
On April 29 Hitler married his long time girlfriend, Eva Braun, However, on April 30 they committed suicide together in an underground bunker of the chancellery building, having ordered that their bodies would be burned.
It was known that Hitler had shot himself in the head, whereas his wife Eva, drank poison.
