Adolf Hitler The Embodiment of Evil

Hitler considered himself as a manager of destiny, a gentleman of fate, whose image of the

opportunity was perfect. Hitler was persuaded beyond any uncertainty that it was he, and he only, which obsessed the image, the resolve authority, and the political and military insight to restore Germany to her rightful place among the other nations of the world. Klara Hitler was Alois' third wife. Alois was twenty-three years older than Klara and already had two children from his previous marriages. Klara and Alois had five children but only Adolf and a younger sister, Paula, survived to become adults. Hitler did enormously well at major educate and it appeared he had a brilliant educational future in front of him. He was also accepted with other students and was much trendy for his management behavior. He was also a intensely spiritual youngster and for a while careful for the options of becoming a priest. Hitler's other major attention at school was painting. His father was angry when Hitler told him that in its place of combination the social repair he was going to become an performer. The association stuck between Hitler and his father decreased and the disagreement merely broken with the loss of Alois Hitler in 1903.

Hitler was thirteen when his father died. His death did not reason the relations monetary hardships. The Hitler family owned their possess home and they also received a piece sum and a openhanded civil repair allowance. When he was eighteen Hitler got a birthright from his father's will. With the wealth he moved to Vienna where he planned to become an art scholar. Hitler had a elevated view of his creative abilities and was shattered when the Vienna Academy of Art rejected his request. He also applied to the Vienna School of Architecture but was not admitted because he did not have a school leaving diploma. Hitler was shamed by these two rejections and could not carry himself to inform his mother what had happen. in its place he continued to breathe in Vienna pretending he was an drawing student. In 1907 Klara Hitler got lost from dangerous disease. Her death exaggerated him far more extremely than the death of his father. He had tender memories of his mother, approved her photograph wherever he went and, it is claim, and had it in his hand when he died in 1945. In 1909 Hitler should have registered for military service. He was reluctant to serve Austria, which he loathed, so he disregarded his call-up papers. It took four years for the establishment to grasp up with him. When he had his medical for the Austro-Hungarian Army in 1914 he was unwanted as being: "Unfit for combatant and auxiliary duty - too weak. Unable to bear arms." The outbreak of the First World War provided him with a chance for a fresh start. It was a chance for him to spin in proving that Germany was superior to other European countries. Hitler told that when he heard the news of war: "I was overcome with sudden enthusiasm, and declining on my lap, wholeheartedly thanked Heaven that I had been arranged the happiness to live at this time. Rejecting the idea of warfare for Austria, Hitler volunteered for the German Army. In times of war therapeutic examinations are not so accurate. Hitler liked being in the defense force. For the first time he was part of a group that was struggle for a common goal. Hitler also liked the pleasure of fighting in a war. Although fairly

alert in his actions, he did not mind risking his life and overcome his commanding officers for volunteering for perilous missions. Hitler was given the job of dispatch-runner. It was a risky job as it involved transport messages from regimental headquarters to the front-line. On one day alone, three out of eight of the regiment's dispatch-runners were murdered. For the first time since he was at primary school Hitler was a winner. Hitler won five medals with the celebrated Iron Cross during the First World War. His powerful officer wrote: "As a dispatch-runner, he has shown cold-blooded courage and ideal boldness. Under environment of great danger, when all the statement lines were cut, the constant and unafraid activity of Hitler made it possible for important post to go through". The German Army also begins using Hitler as a secret agent. In September 1919, he was informed to attend a meeting of the German Worker's Party (GWP). The army feared that this new party, led by Anton Drexler, might be advocating communist insurgency. Hitler discovered that the party's following ideas were parallel to his own. He approved of Drexler's German nationalism and anti-Semitism but was apathetic with the way the party was planned. Although there as a spy, Hitler could not control him when a member made a point he disagreed with, and he stood up and made a obsessive speech on the subject. Drexler was fearful with Hitler's abilities as a narrator and invited him to join the party. At first Hitler was averse, but urged on by his commanding officer, Captain Karl Mayr, he finally agreed. He was only the fifty-fourth person to join the GWP. Hitler was directly asked to join the management committee and was later appointed the party's cant manager. In the next few weeks Hitler bring several members of his army into the party, including one of his commanding officers, Captain Ernst Roehm. The arrival of Roehm was an key development as he had admission to the army political fund and was able to transfer some of the money into the GWP.

The German Worker's Party had worn some of this money to promote their meetings. Hitler was often the main narrator and it was during this period that he developed the techniques that made him into such a convincing orator. Hitler's status as an orator grew and it soon became clear that he was the main reason why people were combination the party. This gave Hitler fantastic power within the organization as they knew they could not have enough money to lose him. One change optional by Hitler concerned adding "Socialist" to the name of the party. Hitler had always been unfriendly to socialist ideas, especially those that mixed up racial or sexual equality. However, socialism was a popular political philosophy in Germany after the First World War. This was reflected in the expansion in the German Social Democrat Party (SDP), the largest political party in Germany.

Hitler knows that the growth in the party was mainly due to his skills as a speaker and in the autumn of 1921 he challenged Anton Drexler for the leadership of the party. After succinct resistance Drexler accepted the inevitable, and Hitler became the new leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler's facility to produce in his supporters emotions of antagonism and hate often resulted in their committing acts of violence. In September 1921, Hitler was sent to prison for three months for being part of a mob who strike up a rival politician. Hitler said that Aryan power was being threatened particularly by the Jewish pursuit who, he argued, were lazy and had contributed little to world society. He claimed that the "Jewish youth mendacity in wait for hours on end satanically clear at and spying on the lifeless girl whom he plans to seduce, adulterating her blood with the definitive idea of bastardizing the white race which they hate and thus lowering its cultural and political level so that the Jew might dictate."

According to Hitler, Jews were accountable for everything he did not like, together with modern art, pornography and prostitution. Hitler also assumed that the Jews had been responsible for losing the First World War. Hitler also claimed that Jews, who were only about 1% of the population, were little by little taking over the country. They were doing this by calculating the

largest political party in Germany, the German Social Democrat Party, many of the principal companies and several of the country's newspapers. The fact that Jews had achieved prominent positions in a democratic society was, according to Hitler, an dispute against democracy: "a hundred blockheads do not equal one man in insight."

After the early rise to control of the Nazis, many of them, together with the head of the SA Ernst Roehm, wanted to see an added change in the power structure of Germany by taking over control of big businesses and installing the SA as the main army of Germany with the accessible army inferior to it. Hitler however thought differently and sought to keep the German economy in good shape, cut joblessness and enable him to quickly re-arm the Wehrmacht. To Hitler, the SA was simply a political force not a military one. Also the mature President Hindenburg would not live much longer and Hitler needed the carry of the Army if he was to be named as Hindenburg's successor. In May of 1934 Hitler planned to the chiefs of the Army and the Navy that he would suppress the SA and at the same time expand the Army and Navy if they would support him as the descendant to Hindenburg. The chiefs of the forces readily agreed to Hitler's endorsement. In June Hitler controlled the SA to go on leave for the entire month. However, by that time the unruliness and lawlessness perpetrate by Nazi thugs had grown to a point where President Hindenburg and his higher-ranking generals were considering declaring a state of marshal law and Hitler was showing with this recourse if he didn't do something to curb these immoderation. These threats, coupled with rumors generated by Himmler and Goering concerning Roehm's loyalty to the Fuehrer and an impending coup against Hitler, finally provoked Hitler to order Himmler and Goering to take action against the leaders of the SA. On June 30th 1934 Himmler's SS and Goering's special police detained and executed the leaders of the SA, including Ernst Roehm, and many others not associated with the SA, but touching whom the Nazi leaders had a score to patch up. These others included General von Schleicher, the past Chancellor.

President Hindenburg died on August 2nd 1934. Hitler had already approved with the Cabinet that upon Hindenburg's death the offices of President and Chancellor would be shared. The last

requirements of Hindenburg were that upon his death the monarchy should be restored. Hitler managed to suppress these wishes and did not publish the President's will. Having already ensured the support of the Army, Hitler went a step further by making the whole of the armed services pledge an oath of loyalty to him personally. A plebiscite was then held for the community to decide on whether they standard of the changes already made - 90% of voters gave their support. Thus Hitler had become "Fuehrer and Reich Chancellor" and the title of President was then abolished.

Once in power, Hitler went on to institute himself as an unqualified ruler. A fire in the German Parliament building gave him a good defense to demand full powers. These were established to him two days later on the 29th of February 1933, which uncovered the individual of all independence and choice. However, in order to succeed in presidency, Hitler required the support of the army. In return for eliminating old friend and leader of the S.A. (which was to be replaced by the S.S.), Hitler was promised full support of the army. On June 29th 1934, Hitler accepted out his promise in the Night of the Long Knives. Rhom and other members of the S.A. were executed crying "Heil Hitler", not accepting why they were being killed. With the support of the army, Hitler went on to deal with the unemployment problems, and to bring military back to Germany.

The year 1935 saw many changes for Germany. In January, the Saarland was returned to Germany, and in March enlistment was introduced along with rearmament. In July, a naval agreement was customary with the British, which recognized Germany's right to rearm. In 1935, the conditions for the Jews got shoddier. At a speech in Nuremburg, Hitler announced the Nuremburg laws, which uncovered Jews of their citizenship, and their rights to enjoy the repayment of the state. The Jewish people of Germany were also mandatory to carry a yellow star of David, identifying them to the Gestapo (Hitler's secret police). Those who insolvent the laws were subject to beatings, penalty, and even death. In 1936, using the Soviet-French pact as an excuse, Hitler remilitarize the Rhineland, a disputed territory between Germany and France.

In October of that year, Hitler signed the Rome-Berlin axis, which soon became the AntiCommittee Pact which incorporated the country of Japan.

With the intensified bullying of the Jews, Hitler began to plan ideas about foreign policy. Hitler whispered that Germany needed to fight, to undo the wrongs that had been committed against Germany in the Treaty of Versaille. Hitler wrote "those who do not want to fight, do not warrant to live". Hitler formulated an idea named "Lebensraum", which in English means living space. In this policy, Hitler hoped to multiply German frontiers, in order to make Germany more self-sufficient and hard work. This idea alone destined taking over other countries which were autonomous in their own right.

In the year of 1938, Hitler concluded Anscluss with the country of Austria. With the plunge of Austria without a single shot being fired, Jews in Austria received the same treatment as their counterparts in Germany. Tens of thousands were caged and sent to absorption camps, just because they happened to be Jewish creed. Not eager to take on the issue, the Allies were unable to stop the German's from taking over Austria. As Hitler grew bolder, so did his conquests. Next on his agenda was Czechoslovakia, a country delimited on three side by Germany and Austria. Hitler demanded that the German speaking section of the country should become part of Germany. The Czech Government was sturdily against Hitler's demands feeling that they did not have anything to agonize about since they were militarily allied with France and Russia. In meetings with the British Prime Minister, In Munich, Hitler was given the Sudetenland in come back for no more defensive demands. The Agre! ement was made and quiet was made in order to quiet down Hitler, so he would no longer grounds any further problems. It seem like a triumph for peace, but in fact, the Czechs were let down by their partners. By March 1939 Hitler had broken the Munich Agreement when the whole of Czechoslovakia was invaded. Unlike Chamberlin's quote, there would be no more things as "peace for our time."

Hitler's next move was touching Poland. Before launching his incursion, Hitler first wanted to secure an agreement with the Soviet Union, since they could have been a possible peril. With Stalin's pledge, Hitler invaded Poland splitting in two between the Soviet Union and Germany. Having skilled the slow and bloody battles in the First World War, Hitler resolute to use a new technique of waging war. He used Blitzkrieg, or lightning war in which airplanes would bomb, while being supported by large divisions of tanks. This new technique proved well in the foray of Poland, which took the Germans only two weeks to take over. Although the Poles had been long time partners of the British and the French, there was not much that the allies could do for her, because it would have involved going through Germany. This would have been a tricky task. The allies did however speak out war, but no military actions were taken. This war is often referred to as the phony war becaus! e they never fought.

In the following spring of 1940, after a cold and long winter, Hitler went on to triumph over the Nations of Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Holland, Luxembourg, and France. With a great speed and power, the Germans rolled through these nations as in a very short time, easily serious the resistance. England on the other hand was not backing down Hitler. The new P.M. Winston Churchill vowed to fight against the Germans. During the Battle of Britain, Which began in 1940, the British and German's battled it out in the skies. Huge fatalities were suffered on both sides, civilian and military. In Spite of these great losses, the British refused to give out. The bombing of British civilian only increased British support around the World. Especially from the United States, who from this point enlarged their economic and military aid to the British. By October of that year, Hitler called off the action, realizing that the British could not be crushed.

Following Hitler's collapse in the Battle of Britain, Hitler encouraged on to conquer the Soviet Union in order to gain power on their oil, minerals, and wheat fields. The molest was launched on June 22nd 1941, in the hope that the conquer of the Soviet Union would crop up before the

winter. This was a grave miscalculation on Hitler's part, because it understood that the Soviet's would easily be crushed. This was not the case. By December of that year, it was clear that the German's were not going to take the Soviet Union in one single combat. The winter had come and the German's were not organized to deal with the subzero temperatures. Hitler was required to back down. This was Hitler's first set back and led to his moribund success.

Meanwhile, back in Germany, Himmler equipped Hitler's plans on the final solution. This was the plan which was referring to the termination of the Jewish people. Concentration camps were lengthened throughout the conquered territories of Europe. As well as absorption camps, extermination camps were extra to the lists. These were places like Auschwitz and Mauthausen, where hundreds of thousands of Jewish men, women, and children were murdered. In addition to concentration camps and exterminations camps, mobile finishing squads were established, which traveled around Europe murdering Jewish people. In this next quote, we see an eyewitness's vivid recollection of an execution: "The people, completely unprotected, went down some steps and clambered over the heads of the people lying there to the place to which the man heading for them. The lay down in face of the dead or offended people some caressed those who were still animate and spine to them in a low voice. Then I heard a string! of shots. I looked into the pit and saw that the bodies were twitching. Blood was management from their necks. By the end of the war, an estimated six million Jews died at the end of Nazi's, in what they saw as the only solution to the Jewish problem.

At the end of 1942, defeat against Hitler bring the war to a spinning point. Hitler bowed away from the reality of the situation, only listening to positive reports, which were given to him by his personal secretary. Germany was opposite a distracted situation because they were not receiving any constructive help from her flagging ally Mussolini. The Years of 1943 and 1944 saw several killing attempts on Hitler's life. They all botched making his personal security tighter. As 1945 came around, Hitler was found in a trench where he was planning his last pains to stop the incoming forces of the Soviet Union, the United States, and the British. On April

30th, the end was near. Hitler parted departure to his loyal remainders before shooting himself in the head. A weak after the suicides of Hitler and Goebbels, the force of Germany surrendered absolutely to the Allies. The war was over, but it was only by the time that the world realizes the horrors that had been comm.! itted.

As the Allies modern the death camps right through Europe, people everywhere were stunned. Between the years 1945 and 1949, many Nazi leaders were put on trial for the war crimes that they had devoted against humanity. While on trial, these men claimed that they were only following orders. The judges were indifferent to these claims, and sentenced many of the leaders to death and life captivity.

The defeat of Hitler's Reich greatly tainted the lives of many people. The Jews were the most injured victims of Hitler's Reich, trailing about six million of their people to indiscriminant killings. With the end of the war, they looked for a homeland in which they could get away from the unfairness and experiences, which they had in Europe. In 1947, Palestine was rip into a Jewish State and an Arabic State, causing instantaneous confrontation of the two groups. With the defeat of the Palestinians in 1949, the Jewish people traditional a state of Israel. The picture had not only changed in Europe, but as well as in the Middle East. In Europe the Allies were averse to allow Germany to ever manufacture a similar Reich to the one Hitler had fashioned. Not only that, but Germany was not permitted to create nuclear arms. Countries which suffered from Germany in the War, never hunted to see German soldiers on their soils again. Not only that, but they did not trust such a natio! n with terrible weapons after all the horrors they committed. The Allies split the Germany into two unlike zones. This is which resulted in the formation of two separate countries, which were not reunited until 1989. Now that it has accepted fifty years since the 2nd World War, Germany has changed in many ways. Despite the abundant scars which the nation hold in it's memory, great progression has occurred. With the reunification in the year 1989, Germany has hit new eras. Germany has become one of the

largest economies in Europe and in the world without having needs to conquer other peoples. budding from a dark day of history, Germany is now the most important single backer in European economic union. These remarkable changes can be accounted for because of the allies' occupation, which has led Germany to pay for their war crime and terrible deeds. The results have been appealing in contrast to the years in which Hitler led the country to war. Germany is the undisputed economic giant in Europe. Though, one can see that the countries like France are petrified of Germany's rise. In history, Germany has invaded France on many occasions. As Germany gets stronger and leads European Un! ion, France is skeptical because they don't know if they can be trusted. Anyway, despite France's hesitation, Germany has risen from a shocked war-torn country to one of the leaders in Europe. This to me is impressive, because they have come along a blond bit since their defeat in 1945. Hitler's overall success must be ascribed to the conditions, which existed in Post War Germany, and Hitler's great capacity as a speaker and a politician. His rise to power was not to be expected, it must be noted that he greatly used the conditions of the time in his goodwill. The power that he held was total, but he made no undying donations to the human race. He has left an evil mark on mankind. Hitler is known and will continue to be known for the iniquity crimes that he committed against mankind, and against the world. Now, fifty years later, Germany has emerged as an economic colossal without the needs for grand military. Other nations will not absolve Hitler, but they will forgive the people.
