Appelgren1Christoffer Appelgren Doctor. Malmgren English 1158 1 October, 2014What Drove Hitler to Execute the Worst Genocide Know to Man?Adolf Hitler is one of the most outstanding as well as one of the most brutal people in the world history. It cannot be denied that he was an exceptionally bright and charismatic person, though on the other hand, it seems to be very hard to admit the positive characteristics of a world-known tyrant. I have pretty long been interested in matters pertaining to World War II and Hitler as a specific person, and although I have seen a number of movies and read a lot about him, they have always revolved around the war and the German soldiers killing the Jews instead of focusing on the person behind everything. In my paper I would like to shed some light on what made him to hate Jews and what made him to be able to go through with the worst genocide known to man.Adolf Hitler was born on a Sunday evening 20 April 1889 in a small Austrian city named Braun au. His mother Klara (1860-1907) was a dedicated housewife while his father (1837-1903 worked as a customs officer. Alois and Klara had previously given birth to three children before Adolf, but none of the children had been older than three years. A few years later, Adolf got two new siblings, but it was just one of the sisters who became an adult. Hitler was very fond of his indulgent and caring mother especially since his father was a much disciplined man, frequently showing a bad temper and didn't hesitate to punish his children when they were disobedient. The family left the small town of Braun au, because his father repeatedly changed his service in the job and eventually they settled in 1895 when Alois got disabled and the family bought a house in a village called Leonding that were outside Linz. Adolf was a bright child even though he failed to pass high school admissions examinations in Linz twice. At this high school he had a pan-German lecture with a professor named Leopold Poetsch, who got him spellbound and significantly influenced his opinion and young mind.In January 1903 Hitler's father Alois passed away and four years later in December 1907 his mother died as well in cancer so 18 year old Adolf was now without parents and he decided to move to Brigitte au that was a small fast growing region in Vienna, where he had hopes of becoming an artist. In this city he became very politically affected because there were many different ideologies in the region. It was in Vienna that Hitler would start developing into an active Anti-Semitist, a passion that would come to direct him in life and that was a key factor to all his later actions and choices in life. Anti-Semitism was deeply rooted in the southern German catholic culture in which Hitler grew up with, and during the time Hitler was in Vienna (1907-1913), the city was a little bit like a hotbed of anti-Semitism and a passionate hatred against Jews was awakened in him.For Hitler it was an eyesore to see a...
