At half past six on the evening of April 20th, 1889 a child

was born in the small town of Branau, Austria. The name of the child

was Adolf Hitler. He was the son a Customs official Alois Hitler, and

his third wife Klara.

As a young boy Adolf attendated church regulary and sang in

the local choir. One day he carved a symbol into the bench which

resembled the Swastika he later used as the symbol of the Nazi party.

He was a pretty good student. He received good marks in most of his

classes. However in his last year of school he failed German and

Mathematics, and only succeeded in Gym and Drawing. He drooped out of

school at the age of 16, spending a total of 10 years in school. From

was not a bad artist, as his surviving paintings and drawings show but

he never showed any originality or creative imagination.

To fullfil

his dream he had moved to Vienna the capital of Austria where the

Academy of arts was located. He failed the first time he tried to get

admission and in the next year, 1907 he tried again and was very sure

of success. To his surprise he failed again. In fact the Dean of the

academy was not very impressed with his performance, and gave him a

really hard time and said to him "You will never be painter."1 The

rejection really crushed him as he now reached a dead end. He could

not apply to the school of architecture as he had no high-school

diploma. During the next 35 years of his live the young man never

forgot the rejection he received in the dean's office...
