HISTORY TIP OF THE DAY

History Tip of the Day – February 26th

Adolf Hitler born, April 20th, 1889

Born in Braunau am Inn, in present-day Austria, Hitler was one six children of Alois and Klara Hitler.

Hitler was raised Catholic. His parents were very devout. He was born into a middle-class household and never expected that he would have to work for a living but would live on his family’s savings. While he had dreams of being a famous architectural artist, he had not done well enough in school to get into the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. This man, who would later command thousands with horrible charisma, was shy and unusually silent as a child.
