Little Adolf

Theory Number 1

Adolf Hitler seized power, January 30, 1933. He knew that only sudden death awaited him if he failed to restore pride of the empire to post Versailles Germany. His close friend and adjutant, Julius Schaub, recorded Hitler's jubilant boast to his staff on that evening, as the last celebrating guests left the Berlin Chancellery building: "No power on earth will get me out of this building alive!"

Theory Number 2

Many historians believe the reason behind Hitler's hatred was the he was an insane and abnormal man who blamed Jews for all the evil in the world. His belief led to the Holocaust that killed thousands of people before and during World War II.

Theory Number 3

As a child, Hitler clashed frequently with his father. Following the death of his younger brother, Edmund, in 1900, he became detached and introverted. His father did not approve of his interest in fine art rather than business. Hitler showed an early interest in German nationalism. His father, Alois died suddenly in 1903. Two year later, Adolf's mother allowed her son to drop out of school and move to Vienna. At the beginning of World War I, he applied to the German army and was excepted.
