Adolf Hitler

Germany Leader in World War II

Early Years

Adolf Hitler was born on 20 April 1889 in Braunau am Inn, a town in Austria-Hungary (which is now present-day Austria). He was the fourth of six children to Alois Hitler and Klara Polzl (1860–1907). Hitler's older siblings—Gustav, Ida, and Otto—died in infancy. When Hitler was three, the family moved to Passau, Germany. There he acquired the distinctive lower Bavarian language, rather than Austrian German, which marked his speech throughout his life.

Entering Politics

Drexler favoured a strong active government, a non-Jewish version of socialism, and solidarity among all members of society. Impressed with Hitler's oratorical skills, Drexler invited him to join the DAP(German Worker's Party). Hitler accepted on 12 September 1919, becoming party member number 555.

Hitler's Speech

In his speech, Hitler used great words of saying what he believed was right and downgrading the enemies of Germany. He persuaded people and spoke their minds, he spoke to them letting them feel important and which they were. With their support, he could do what he wanted to and believed in. His style of words rallied the people to support him. In his speech, he gained support. You can tell by the cheering from the crowd when he would say certain things, and at the end when his speech was over.
