3484 words - 14 pages

Adolf Hitler was a man with no cares in the world. He would do anything he wanted to; no one would be able to stop him. All he wanted was power, power to control everything. He had the ambition to do anything. He sent people who didn't agree with him and the people he hated most, the Jews, to concentration camps. He killed more than five million people that he thought were dangerous, and six million Jews, which resulted in the Holocaust. (Internet."Adolf Hitler"pg. 1). He fiercely rose to power and began making evil plans. His forceful speeches changed the minds of millions. Hitler used hatred and violence to lead the nation and was considered a God to most Germans. Adolf Hitler's parents lived in Brauhau-am-Inn, Austria. His father, Alois Hitler, worked as a custom officer on the country's border, and his mother, Klara Hitler, a housewife. Alois and Klara were married on January 7, 1885. Alois and Klara had two children that died in infancy, Gustav and Ida. Soon after the death of the children, Adolf was born on April 20, 1889. He had affection from his mother, but his father was very abusive towards him and his children. When Alois Jr. became old enough, he left home because he couldn't handle his father any more. The family moved around a lot because of Alois's job. They ended up in Linz, where Alois retired in 1895. During that time Adolf was old enough to go to school. He liked school and was a good student. In earlier years he wanted to be a priest, but his dreams wanted to become an artist. His parents were very worried for Adolf because his grades were slipping. He often accused the teachers of his bad grades, saying that they were mentally disordered. From that moment on Adolf hated school. When it was time for Adolf to go to a higher level of school; he had a choice, either the gymnasium or Realschule. Adolf wanted to go to the gymnasium but his father forced him to go to Realschule in 1900. Adolf was depressed and very unhappy. He failed his first year, but his second year he had most of the students under his command. He told all the students that a true German had blue eyes and light brown hair like his. On January 3, 1903 his father died of an internal bleeding, leaving Adolf only 13, head of the household. He became lazy and didn't want to work or go to school. In 1904 he was expelled because of his grades. Klara didn't want him to sit around so she made Adolf go into another Realschule school near Linz. Adolf was so unhappy that he would entertain himself by shooting rats from his window. Shortly, Adolf became sick with a lung disease, which affected his breathing. At age 16, Adolf quit school, blaming his sickness. From then on, all Adolf could think about was painting. He stayed up late just to read books on art. He usually visited the opera houses in Linz and Vienna. One play that encouraged him to be the leader of the Germans was the play "Rienzi". (Book, The Importance of Adolf Hitler pg.22) Later, he went to Vienna to...
