The one who does not remember history Is bound to live through it again” -George Santayana Doll Hitler Is known for having the greatest Impact on Europe In all of history, especially Germany. Although the majority of people look down on him for his mass whole country is incredible. He started out as a boy from a little town in Austria with nothing more than a paintbrush and a dream; a dream to become an artist and study at the Vienna Academy of Art. Although this infamous man is one of the most hated people in history, his story is one that must be told.
Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 in the little town of Braun-am-Len, Austria. Allis Hitler was Doll’s father. He was a customs officer on the Status-German border. His father retired from his Job when Doll was only 6 years old and that created tension In the Hitler household. Doll feared his father because of his strict attitude towards Doll. When he was 13, his father passed away leaving Doll’s mother, Clara, and his younger siblings to care for themselves. He left some money behind for Clara to take care of the family. Doll

Hitler wanted to become an artist and dropped out of school In hopes of becoming a famous artist. From when Doll was 16 to the age of 19, he did not work or go to school. Hitler moved to Vienna to study art at the Vienna Academy of Art in 1907. He took the entrance exam, but failed. The following year, he tried to take it again, but the academy did not permit him to take it again. Vienna Academy needed artists that could paint people, despite Hitter’s amazing talent to draw landscapes. To make it even worse, his mother passed away 2 months from cancer after he failed his exam he second time in 1908.
There were even some accounts of Hitler sitting next to his mother on her deathbed. Hitler could not live on the little money that he earned selling postcards of architectural drawings so once WWW broke out, Hitler started portraying politics. In August of 1914, World War II broke out and Hitler moved to Munich to avoid being drafted Into the Austrian Army. Hitler became very Involved In politics and became an advocate of the Pan-Germans political party. World War I was also known as “The War to End all Wars” and also “The Great Waif.
It broke out cause Gabriel Prince, a Bosnian revolutionary, assassinated the Austrian President, Franz Ferdinand, and his wife on June 28, 1914. Hitler become a strong leader during WWW because he lived in Austria at the time and was promoted to the rank of Corporal. Hitler was partially blinded by a mustard gas attack in Belgium a month before the war ended. He was sent to a military hospital and about 3 weeks after the incident, news came that he was recovering and he would regain sight in a matter of weeks. When the war ended in November 1918, he was awarded many medals due to is bravery and dedication to his country.
Hitler was outraged that Europe had lost the First World War and that due to the state of depression; It was the Jews fault. All people of the Jewish religion were the mall target for Hitler when the second war broke out. Hitler had a “perfect race” In his mind consisting of everyone In Europe that was “normal”. He mainly targeted Jews, but also killed people with disabilities, gypsies, freemasons, and Soviet Union politic advisors, prisoners of war, gays, Jehovah Witnesses, beggars, homeless people, prostitutes, Polish intellectuals, socialists, labor leaders, and Romanizes.
In the sass’s, Hitler was arrested due to his radical politics. Doll had a persuasive ability to him, which worked to his advantage in having most of Europe side with him. He rose to power with a strong will to manipulate Europe. By the early sass’s, Hitler had a hold on Europe both politically and ethnically. Hitler became a German citizen in 1932. He became chancellor of Germany in 1933 and F;here (dictator of Germany) a year after that which ended in 1945, with his death. A F;here is a German leader or guide, which is now related often to Hitler.
Hitter’s rise to power was based on long- term affects for Germany. The decade of depression left by the First World War, which left Europe in great debt and starving. There was so much resentment in the Germans, which they wanted a leader that could help them out of the state of depression that lasted so long. Hitter’s Nazi’s, men who followed and helped Hitler to his rise of power, also had a reign of terror that scared Europe and thus leading to Hitter’s rise. Doll Hitler was a very profound and persuasive public speaker.
He would make public speeches about how f he got into power, that he would guarantee food and health for every person in Germany. One of his mottos was “A Chicken In Every Pot, A [Volkswagen] In Every Garage”. This was a very promising statement for Germany; after all they had been through. The Holocaust is the most infamous mass murder throughout all of history. It went on from January 30th, 1933 to May 8th, 1945 (V-E Day). It was a plan to murder all people of the Jewish religion in Europe. This was a very highly thought through plan created by Hitler to achieve his “perfect race”.
Hitter’s anti-Semitism acts were cause he thought that it was a Jewish professor that turned Hitler down from being able to study at the Academy in Vienna and also thought that it was a Jewish doctor that could not help Doll’s mother live. When Hitler started invading countries, he started to create laws that banned the Jews from doing certain things. They were not allowed to be teachers or store owners. The Jews had to eventually wear a Star of David on all their clothing items which let other people know who Jews were. This is significant because if you were caught outside past curfew or doing other things that
Jews were banned to do, then you would be arrested or perhaps killed. Only certain people could obtain papers that allowed them to be outside after hours, but even then, not all were spared. After that, in March of 1933, Hitler started a law that every Jew needs to be “relocated”. He built concentration camps in Poland that no one outside of the Jewish community knew about. Nazi’s would go into people’s homes and search for hidden Jews. Soon Jews were sent to live in a ghetto until they were notified that they were going to be sent to a concentration camp.
There were 6 main incarceration camps: Belize, Echelon, Managed, Sober, Trebling, and the worse; Auschwitz-Brinkmen. In each camp, the prisoners were to work all day and get no food or water. Many died of starvation, working to death, heat stroke, typhus, and other diseases. But, the biggest killer is what the Nazi’s would do to them. They would line people up and shoot them, they would hang people, beat them, make them go on several mile walks and if anyone fell of exhaustion, they would kill them on sight in front of everyone. The actions that they took towards these people were inhumanly. MSP and that were liberated to tell their stories, but most were not as fortunate. In all of the concentration camps, they would examine people as soon as they arrived at the camp. Professional doctors that worked for Hitler decided who has healthy and who was unable to work. They would often classify old people and young children as “unable to work” due to their age. In Auschwitz, they would have every unable person strip their clothes and go into a room. After everyone they could fit into a room was in, they closed and locked the door tightly.
In many movies and books, the people loud be saying that they were Just taking showers. The Nazi’s would really be on the roof of the building where all the people were crammed inside, and would pour in a chemical called Colon B World War II started on September 1st, 1939 and ended on May 7th, 1945; Victory day. This war lasted about five and a half years, but the results lasted for eternity. Just over 6 million Jews were killed in this time period; whether it was death by a concentration camp or starvation in a town or even a disease while in hiding, 6 million died because of Hitter’s abuse of power during this time period.
On April 30, 1945, Hitler committed suicide by gunshot along with his wife, Eva, who ingested cyanide. Later that day, in accordance to his instructions, his remains were carried up through the bunker’s emergency exit, soaked in petrol and set on fire in the Reich Chancellery garden outside the building. Years later, his ashes were scattered. He committed suicide right after V-day because he knew he had lost for Germany, and didn’t want to live with the guilt that he did more damage than help to Europe. During the war, no one knew about the concentration camps Hitler had built, except for the Nazi’s and the Jews that were deported there.
After Hitter’s death, Europe found out through a source about the camps and the horrors that happened there. People got to be given exclusive tours through the camps to see what was happening right under their noses. They had no idea any of this was happening. How could they? Doll Hitler planned it out so well that no one would even suspect such horrible things could be happening. When George Santayana said, “The one who does not remember history is bound to live through it again”, He meant that if we do tot understand why something happened or what led to it, we will live through it again.
If we do not understand what Doll Hitler did and why he did it, we will end up living history again, when we do not need to. Hitler had one of the most profound effects on Germany, Europe, and even the whole world was affected by what he did. He created a very well thought through plan to murder all the Jews in Europe, and he almost achieved his distorted goal. We can’t control what happens to us, but we can control how we deal with it. Let us not relive history, but rather learn from it.
