A new book claims Adolf Hitler took time out from running Nazi Germany to make jokes at the expense of his henchmen!
Despite becoming the dictator of Germany, Hitler was not born there. Hitler was born in Braunau am Inn, Austria on April 20, 1889.
Hitler's parents were Alois (1837-1903) and Klara (1860-1907) Hitler.
Hitler had only one sibling that survived childhood, Paula (1896-1960).
However, Hitler also had four other siblings that died in childhood: Gustav (1885-1887), Ida (1886-1888), Otto (1887), and Edmund (1894-1900).
In addition to his sister Paula, Hitler had one half brother, Alois (1882-1956) and one half sister, Angela (1883-1949), both from his father's previous marriage.
Hitler was known as "Adi" in his youth.
Throughout his youth, Hitler dreamed of becoming an artist. He applied twice to the Vienna Academy of Art (once in 1907 and again in 1908) but was denied entrance both times.
At the end of 1908, Hitler's mother died of breast cancer.
After his mother's death, Hitler spent four years living on the streets of Vienna, selling postcards of his artwork to make a little money.
Hitler endured and survived four years of World War I. During this time, he was awarded two Iron Crosses for bravery.
Hitler sustained two major injuries during the war. The first occurred in October 1916 when he was wounded by a grenade splinter. The other was on October 13, 1918, when a gas attack caused Hitler to go temporarily blind.
It was while Hitler was recovering from the gas attack that the armistice (i.e. the end of the fighting) was announced. Hitler was furious that Germany had surrendered and felt strongly that Germany had been "stabbed in the back" by its leaders. It has since been found out that Hitler lied a lot about his exploits in world war one he was a private not a corporal!
