    Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 – April 30, 1945) was Chancellor of Germany from 1933, and "Führer" (Leader) of Germany from 1934 until his death. He was leader of the National Socialist German Workers Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP), better known as the Nazi Party.

    Hitler gained power in a Germany facing crisis after World War I. Using propaganda and charismatic oratory, he was able to appeal to the economic need of the lower and middle classes, while sounding resonant chords of nationalism, anti-Semitism and anti-communism. With the establishment of a restructured economy, a rearmed military, and a totalitarian and fascist regime, Hitler pursued an aggressive foreign policy with the intention of expanding German Lebensraum ("living space"), which triggered World War II when Germany invaded Poland. At its greatest extent, Nazi Germany occupied most of Europe, but, was eventually defeated, along with the other Axis Powers, by the Allies. At war's end, Hitler's ambitions and racial policies had culminated in the killing of approximately 11 million people, including the genocide of some 6 million Jews, in what is now known as the Holocaust. Much of Europe was devastated.

    In the final days of the war, Hitler, along with his new wife, Eva Braun, committed suicide in his underground bunker in Berlin, as the city was being overrun by the Red Army of the Soviet Union.

    Adolph Hitler was actually part Jewish,he came from a poor upbringing.He was born in Austria,he served in WW1 was a good soldier,but sometimes was non commanable,after his arrest in the early 1930's,he wrote a famous book,Mein comp. He recruited a few men to start his German Party,Rudolf Hess,Herman Goerring,and Joseph Goebbles.It is saidthat he was in the Occult,and this is how people say he was kind of a psychic.His most outrageos act,(besides slaughtering 7 million jews)was when he refused to shake Jessie Owens hand after he won 3 gold medals in the 36' Olympics.he took the easy way out before the fall of Germany,he and his wife Ava Braun took cyanide,and had their bodies burned,he made Saddam Hussein look like a choir boy!

    He was Chancellor of Germany, he became an autocratic dictator by ousting the rest of the legal government (Wiemar Republic). He formed his own party (Nazi, meaning National Socialist, they were fascists). He had a fairly good military mind, although did not know his own limitations. He was responsible for the murder of 6 million Jews and about 4 million others (political prisoners, gypsies, people he didn't think were up to snuff physically or mentally). The Holocaust as it is termed was probably most responsible for his downfall since it wasted human resources, the people he was killing and the people doing the killing (many Jewish scientists fled Germany for the U.S. and were responsible for developing advanced weapons systems, think about what would have happened if they had stayed). He took over a large portion of Europe, but the Allies (U.S., Britain and USSR) fought hard and captured it all back. He killed himself once the Allies got close to Berlin - that's the kind of coward he was. Besides being mentally ill, he was probably addicted to speed and other drugs.

    A leader of Germany who murdered Jewish people and their sympathizers; persecuting and murdering those of the Catholic and Christian Faith who objected to his policies and his coercions and his murders. He was came into power, promising relief to a Germany who lost the first World War. Germany's economy had suffered after WWI: Hitler built RRs, rid the country of Jews who were wealthy, built munition factories staffed with slaves from the countries he conquered, and in this way he wanted to re-energize the German economy and the German people; his way would eventually destroy Germany. Many men were inducted into his army. The youth were reeducated. He used the image of an ideal blond German Family to motivate the ordinary folk: He was obsessed with this idea of an ideal race of people that were blond and German. He experimented on people, often those least able to resist. He was a madman, with madmen surrounding him. All those who stood up to him, were enslaved, shot, gassed, or left unfed. Some rich people in other countries were at first dealing with his philosophy and not his reality; or, they were mad too.

    He was the right hand of Satan, a ruthless and psychopathic person who had no scruples about murdering millions of people for his own gains. He fooled Germans into believing they were supermen (some still do) and he cost Germany the lives of millions of devoted Germans. He should have been aborted before he was born.
