The Life of Adolf Hitler
The life of Adolf Hitler had always been a struggle since the day he was born till the very end of his life. You never really understand the situations people put themselves in and why until you really learn about them. Everyone may have their own personal opinions about someone but who is anyone to judge before they really understand the person completely. Each person has their own time line, and everything that has happened to them to make them the person they grow up to be, everyone has certain events throughout their lives that define them and help mold them into adults.

His final school report only classed his History work as "satisfactory" the rest of his school reports were marked as “unsatisfactory” for the rest of his subjects. (“Adolf Hitler 1”). Hitler was able but he simply did not get down to hard work and at the age of eleven, he lost his position in the top class of his school.
After doing very badly in his exams, Hitler left school at the age of fifteen. Hitler’s mother always, supported his actions even though he left school without any qualifications. (“Adolf Hitler 1”). His father was fifty-one when Hitler was born. He was short-tempered, strict and brutal. It is known that he frequently hit the young Hitler. Alois had an elder son from a previous marriage but he had ended up in jail for theft. Alois was determined that Hitler was not going to go down the same road that is why he was brutal approaching to bringing up Hitler. Some believe that the background of Alois was a potential source of embarrassment for the future leader of Nazi Germany. ("Hitler, Adolf (1889-1945) 1"). His father did not approve of his interest in fine art rather than business. In addition to art, Hitler showed an early interest in German nationalism, rejecting the authority of Austro-Hungary. This nationalism would become the motivating force of Hitler's life ("Adolf Hitler 1").
Hitler’s family moved off the farm to the town of Lambach, Austria, halfway between Linz and Salzburg. This was the first of several moves the family would make during the restless retirement of Hitler's father. For young Adolf, the move to Lambach meant an end to farm chores and more time to play. There was an Old Catholic Benedictine monastery in the town. Adolf attended school there and saw them every day. Young Hitler did well in the monastery school and also took part in the boys' choir. He was said to have had a fine singing voice. Years later Hitler would say the solemn pageantry of the high mass and other Catholic ceremonies was quite intoxicating and left a very deep impression. As a young boy he idolized the priests and for two years seriously considered becoming a priest himself. He especially admired the Abbot in charge, who ruled his black-robed monks with supreme authority. At home Hitler sometimes played priest and even included long sermons. At age nine, he got into schoolboy mischief. He was caught smoking a cigarette by one of the priests, but was forgiven and not punished. (“Beyond Evil and Tyranny”).
In 1898, the Hitler family moved once again, to the village of Leonding, close to Linz. They settled into a small house with a garden located next to a cemetery. This meant another change of schools for Adolf. He found school easy and got good grades with little effort. He also discovered he had considerable talent for drawing, especially sketching buildings. He had the ability to look at a building, memorize the architectural details, and accurately reproduce it on paper, entirely from memory. But now at home, tragedy...
