Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889 30 April
1945) was an Austrian-born German
politician and the leader of the National
Socialist German Workers Party.

He was Chancellor of Germany from 1933
to 1945, and head of state from 1934 to
1945. Hitler is most commonly associated
with the rise of fascism in Europe, World
War II and the Holocaust.
Under Hitler's direction, German forces
and their European allies at one point
occupied most of Europe and North Africa,
reversed in 1945 when the Allied armies
defeated the German army. Hitler's
racially motivated policies resulted in the
systematic annihilation of as many as 17
million civilians, including an estimated six
million Jews targeted in the Holocaust and
between 500,000 and 1,500,000 Roma.

In the final days of the war, during the
Battle of Berlin in 1945, Hitler married his
long-time mistress, Eva Braun. To avoid
capture by the Red Army, the two
committed suicide less than two days
later on 30 April 1945 and their corpses
were burned.
