*The name Adolf means “noble wolf” in Old German.

*He gave him self the nick-name “Wolf” or “ Herr Wolf”.

*Many of his headquarters were given names with wolf in it. (wolfsschanze, werwolf, wolfhutt)


Did hitler have any jewish blood

DID HITLER HAVE ANY JEWISH BLOOD?

*Hitler’s paternal grandfather was one of the brothers Johann Georg Hiedler or Johann Nepomuk Hiedler.

*There are suggestions that Hitler may have been as much as one-quarter Jewish.

-His grandmother Maria Shicklgruber may have become pregnant while working as a servant in a Jewish household.

-These rumors could never be confirmed (no documentation)

-Opponents of Hitler tried to use these rumors to cause his downfall.

*Some people believe this is the reason why Hitler made it illegal for German women to work in Jewish households.

*After the Ansschluss, Hitler turned his father’s hometown into an artillery practice area. (CONICEDENCE OR NOT?)


Early adulthood

EARLY ADULTHOOD

*Beginning in 1905 Hitler lived a Bohemian life in Vienna.

*He applied twice to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (1907 -1908) and was rejected each time.

*Wanted to be a painter, was told his talent was in architecture.

*Lacked the proper academic preparation.

EARLY ADULTHOOD CONTINUED

In December of 1907 Hitler’s mother died of Breast Cancer and Hitler was ordered to give his orphan’s benefits to his sister Paula.

He tried to make a living as a painter in Vienna, painting scenes from postcards and selling them to tourist.

He did not do very well and in 1909 ran out of money and ended up living in a homeless shelter.

Hitler said that he first became an anti-Semite while living in Vienna, although there is evidence to show it started before this.

Hitler may have been influenced by many anti-Semitic writers and composers such as Richard Wagner.

Hitler was also influenced by Martin Luther.

Hitler received an inheritance form his father in 1913 and moved to Munich, Germany (always wanted to live in Germany)

In 1914 he was given permission to serve in the Bavarian Army (Germany), although he was an Austrian citizen.
