Wanted Dead or Alive

Hitler was born in 1889 in a small Austrian village close to the German border. When he was a teenager he took an interest in art, however when he applied for the Vienna academy of fine arts, he was rejected. He lost his father when he was fourteen and his mother at eighteen. He returned to Vienna, and quickly became penniless. He often slept in bars and in shelters for the homeless.
Hitler's poor six years in Vienna had him developing an extreme hate of Jews, due to him reading a document that was written by the pre-WWI Russian Royal secret police in an attempt to blame the Jews for the troubled monarchy of Russia. Even though this document was fake, Hitler, already a typical anti-Semitic, believed every single word.
