Category: Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889, in Braunau am Inn, Austria-Hungary (now Austria). He moved to Germany as a young man and served in the German Army during World War I.

Rise to Power

After the war, he joined the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nazi Party) and quickly rose through its ranks, becoming its leader. Using propaganda and charismatic oratory, Hitler gained support and was appointed Chancellor of Germany in 1933. He later consolidated power, becoming Führer in 1934.

World War II

Hitler initiated World War II with the invasion of Poland in 1939 and orchestrated the Holocaust, leading to the genocide of six million Jews, along with millions of other innocent civilians.


As the Allies closed in on Berlin in April 1945, Hitler, realizing defeat was imminent, chose suicide over capture. On April 30, 1945, he ingested cyanide and shot himself in his underground bunker. His body, along with Eva Braun’s—his companion who also committed suicide—was burned, as per his instructions.


Hitler’s life and suicide left a legacy of evil and destruction, symbolizing the horrors of totalitarianism, racism, and war. His atrocities during the Holocaust remain an enduring reminder of the consequences of intolerance and hate.
