Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler was born in Austria in 1889. As a young man, he wanted to be an artist, so he went to Vienna to study painting. Although he applied multiple times, he could not get into the school he wanted, and so he went through a period of his life where he was poor, selling his painting to survive. When World War I began, he immediately enlisted. After the war, he was awarded the Iron Cross for his service, having been injured and gassed in the field. He then started to associate with the National Socialist party, and soon had been arrested for treason after attacking the Beer Hall Putsch. While he was in prison, he wrote Mein Kampf, and when he got out he began campaigning with the Nazi party, which was quickly gaining support. He became Chancellor of Germany in 1933 and attacked Poland in 1939, beginning the second World War. Millions of people died in the war, and in accordance with his ideals, Hitler killed thousands upon thousands of Jews. Eventually, however, the Allies had him cornered in Berlin. On April 30, 1945, Adolf Hitler shot himself in the head and died, giving the victory to the Allied forces.

Lasting Impact

Hitler’s most significant written contribution was Mein Kampf, because it outlined his ideals and his goals for taking over Europe and cleansing the world. Mein Kampf was his masterpiece, and he used it as propaganda throughout the war. It continues to be studied to this day. Mein Kampf was one of the first warning signs given to the world of the danger of Hitler, and although it was not always heeded, it also helped give insight into his ideas during the war. The topics outlined within it caused World War II, which had a huge impact on the world at the time. Afterwards, the European Union was formed as long as many other safeguards and treaties which still exist today. The EU is a huge world power, and the euro is one of the world’s most valuable currencies.
