Hitler's Role in the Rise of the Nazi Party

Since the beginning of the 20th century a lot of people have made
their mark on history but non-more so than Adolf Hitler. Historians
see Hitler as being the demons of all dreams, his patriotism for
Germany led him to do unbelievable tasks that saw nearly 6 million
Jews being annihilated and a further more 15 million soldiers to died
in battle. The crimes that he committed were seen as the most lethal
of any since the dawn of man and thus his name is unforgettable so
that the crimes and horror he forced upon this world would never be
forgotten and thus be repeated.

Born in April 1889 Adolf Hitler was born and brought up to a family of
peasants. His father, Alois Hitler worked in the civil service and his
mother Klara Pölzl stayed home to take care of her sons, Adolf and
Edmund Hitler and daughter Paula. The Hitler family lived on a small
farm outside of Linz, Austria. The children had farm chores to perform
along with their school work. In 1895 Hitler entered Primary school
and later in 1896 the Hitler family moved to the town of Lambach,
Austria, halfway between Linz and Salzburg. In Lambach Adolf became
enrolled in a monastery school and did well in it, as a young boy he
idolised the priests and for two years seriously considered becoming a
priest himself.

In 1898, the Hitler family moved once again, to the village of
Leonding, close to Linz. Young Adolf thus changed school again but he
found school easy and got good grades with little effort. He also
discovered he had considerable talent for drawing, especially
sketching buildings. But at home a tragedy had taken place that would
have effect on the later years of his life. In 1899 Adolf's little
brother Edmund, age 6, died of measles. Adolf, the boy who loved war
play now had to confront genuine death for the first time and it
seemed to have shaken him badly.

In 1900 the years of grade school ended and the he had to make a
decision on the choice of secondary school he would go to. Alois
Hitler wanted his son to join the civil service just like his father
and forced him to join technical secondary school against his will, as
he wanted to join classical secondary school to pursue his dream of
becoming an artist. Being a country boy in the big city Adolf became
depressed and lonely as he was forced to study what he didn't want to
and this was reflected upon his poor grades and thus being forced to
stay back. Adolf continually argued with his father over his future
career but Alois would not have his son becoming an artist, as it
would be utterly ridiculous. But Adolf saw the idea of becoming a
civil servant sitting behind a desk all day being utterly boring but
his father got his way and thus Adolf continued studying in technical
school until January 1903, when his father...
