Two days later, the two commited suicide, to avoid capture and marked the end of WWll. Hitler is responsible for eleven million deaths during this period.

Early LifeAdolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 in Brunau am Inn, Austria. His abusive father passed away when he was only 13 and his mother struggled to keep her health throughout his childhood. She passed away when Adolf was 18 of breast cancer. After his mother's death, he continuted to apply for art schools in Vienna with high hopes of getting accepted, only to get rejected and criticized on his art. He left his roommate and at one point he was sleeping on park benches and eating at homeless shelters, making little money off of selling his artwork to the local Jews. Adolf then joined the army in WWl, he was lucky and avoided many deaths. During this time, he gained more insight on war life which would soon help him with his position in the Holocuast and the deaths of almost ten million people.
