His Reign of Terror is over:

Adolf Hitler was born in Braunau, Austria on April 20, 1889. Adolf's father, Alois, was 52 years old and his mother, Klara, was 28 years old. Adolf's mom and dad were second cousins. Adolf had 7 siblings, Soon after Adolf was born his father retired from being a customs official, and the family moved to Linz, Austria. His dad had a bad temper and would beat Adolf. However, Adolf was a very bright student. He received good grades in elementary school and was very well liked. He was a very religious boy and had once thought of becoming a monk. However, once got to high school, his grades and popularity dropped. The competition was much higher, and since he was not on top, he quit trying. His father became very mad with him. Alois wanted Adolf to became a government official like he had once been. When he was 18, Hitler received money from his father's will and moved to Vienna in 1907 to become an art student. He took the entrance examination twice but failed both times. About 1909 Hitler received call-up papers to join for military service. He didn't want to serve for Austria so he ignored the papers. It took authorities four years to catch up with him. When they

caught up with him in 1913, they forced him to take a medical examination. He failed they said he was too weak for battle. Once the war was over, Hitler decided to join a nationalist group called the German Workers' party. As the years went on the name changed to National Socialist German Workers' party, also known as the Nazi party .The Nazis wanted one united government. The party was small at first but Hitler's great skilled speeches attracted more and more listeners and it soon became a major party with many followers. Eventually Adolf Hitler became it's leader. While spending time in prison for trying to overthrow the government Adolf Hitler wrote his famous book "Mein Kampf", in were many problems and where he states that the Jews and communists were responsible for those problems. He also decided on the "Final Solution" to wipe the jewish race. Hitler ordered the creation of a special police force to make sure that all opponents would be eliminated, the Gestapo. He also gave orders to set up a special force that would be used to transport and take care of all political prisoners and people thought to be less than him. The name of the force was the SS. Hitler in his speeches blamed the Jews and Communists for their misfortunes. Hitler also spoke out against the unfairness of the Versailles treaty. Germany lost a lot of its territory. He believed the pure Arian race is destined to rule the world and wanted to build an Empire that would last a 1000 years. He preached that all Germans must unite in order for this goal to succeed. After the Wehrmacht conquered and occupied a territory the SS quickly followed. They would round up Jews, Communists, Gypsies, Homosexuals and others which were viewed as Inferior according to Nazi theory and enemies of the German people and put on trains. They were all sent to Concentration camps, which were set up to implement the final solution. Camps such as Auschwitz, Treblinka, Bergen-Belsen was all equipped with gas chambers to make the killing process quick and effectual. In those camps 6 million Jews and the Nazis killed many others. Hitler's army seemed unstoppable but in the end, the allies managed to win many decisive battles. Eventually on Aril 30th, 1945 Hitler committed suicide in his bunker by shooting himself in the mouth. His body was burned, but no one knows what happened to the ashes. On May 7th, 1945 Germany surrendered. To conclude Hitler's death the Nazi party quickly faded, but there is still a lot of tension in Germany today. Also Hitler nearly wiped out the entire Jewish race. He is one of the most hated men. His belief of the superiority of the Aryan race made him hate all others. So much that in early 1945, when equipment and manpower was badly needed on the front Hitler insisted on man and equipment staying and continuing to transport Jews to the camps. In his Testament he left his money to his family.
