Adolph Hitler - (Germany)
Austrian born, Adolf Hitler would rise to
become the leader of Germany and one of the most hated men in
all of history. Born in 1889, Hitler fought in World War I.
The peace imposed on Germany after that war angered him, and
the rest of his life he sought to reverse the peace that had
humiliated his adopted country. In 1919, he founded the
National Socialist Worker's Party, and in 1923, he was
imprisoned for the Munich Putsch. In 1930, because of the
severe economic downturn that he blamed on the Jews, his party
won several seats in the German legislature.
