Basic information

Birth place
Braunau-am-Inn, Austria

Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th, 1889 in the small Austrian village of Braunau am Inn. He was the fourth of six children born to Alois Hitler and Klara Pölzl. Growing up, Hitler was a bright student but had a difficult relationship with his father, who wanted him to pursue a career in civil service. However, Hitler was more interested in the arts, and eventually left school at the age of 16 to pursue a career as an artist in Vienna.

Hitler's early life was marked by poverty and rejection. He was rejected twice by the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, and was forced to live in a homeless shelter for several years. Despite his struggles, Hitler remained determined to pursue his passion for art and politics. During this time, he began to take an interest in the German nationalist movement, and in 1912 he moved to Munich, Germany, to join the German army.

Hitler served in the German army during World War I, and was decorated several times for bravery. Following the war, he returned to Munich and joined the National Socialist German Workers' Party (NSDAP). He quickly rose to become the leader of the party, and in 1933 he was appointed Chancellor of Germany.

Hitler's rise to power was marked by the implementation of a variety of oppressive measures, including the suppression of civil liberties, the establishment of concentration camps and the instigation of the Holocaust. These measures ultimately led to the outbreak of World War II and the deaths of millions of people. Following Germany's defeat in 1945, Hitler committed suicide in his bunker in Berlin.

Adolf Hitler's birthday, April 20th, was an important day for him, and it was celebrated each year with grand parades and speeches. Hitler was known to give extravagant presents to his close friends and associates on his birthdays. He is reported to have given a golden cigarette case to Hermann Göering  on his 50th birthday, and a gold-plated Volkswagen Beetle to Joseph Goebbels on his 40th.

Also, Heinrich Himmler received birthday presents from Adolf Hitler. It is believed that Hitler gave him a number of gifts over the years, including a bronze bust of himself, a gold watch, and a copy of Mein Kampf.

Hitler also had a particular fondness for children, and is said to have enjoyed throwing birthday parties for them at his mountain retreat in the Bavarian Alps. Hitler often gave children presents such as model airplanes, toy cars, dolls and stuffed animals.

One of his closest and most devoted associates was Joseph Goebbels, Hitler was very fond of his wife Magda Goebbels and the children, and some historians refer to her as the unofficial "first lady" .

Hitler was 56 years and 10 days old when he died in 1945. He had been in power for just over 12 years. During this time, he had transformed Germany into a powerful military state and had initiated the deadliest conflict in human history.

Adolf Hitler is remembered today as one of the most infamous dictators in history. His actions have had a lasting impact on the world, and his legacy is still felt today.
