One day in the summer of 1888, in a moment of what should have been an act of forbidden love, a man named Alois Hitler and his much younger cousin Klara conceived a child with an absolutely despicable fate. The family already consisted of two stepchildren, Alois Junior and Angela. They had also lost a son together in 1887 who was named Gustav and a daughter named Ida in 1888. Then, on April 20th of 1889, Adolf Hitler was born in Austria-Hungary in the small town of Braunau, right on the border of Germany.
As he was growing up his family moved around a lot, since his father was a customs officer. Along the way, Klara also gave birth to Otto, Edmund, and Paula. This was all kind of hard on Adolf and his siblings, on top of that they were all severely abused by Alois Senior. He was a brutally sadistic man who beat his wife and kids on a regular basis. He even kicked the family dog around. Adolf’s father once left him for dead after a particularly savage beating. This left him so scared that he slept in the same bed with his mom for years.
Adolf Hitler was a frail little mama’s boy, but because his three other brothers including Otto and Edmund died very young while he managed to live on, he believed himself to be very special. Later this would develop into a full-blown God complex accompanied by a sense of immortality. Even as a child Adolf was a natural-born leader with an overabundance of charisma. Whenever the children would play among themselves or even with some of their friends, he always controlled what everyone did. He was quite full of himself, even in his youth. As a result young Adolf did rather poorly in school, arrogantly thinking it was all beneath him.
At the age of eight Adolf was an altar boy in a monastery. There, he became very interested in the image of a stylized cross that was carved deep into the monastery pediment which bore a striking resemblance to a swastika. Then, being a highly impressionable individual, his mind embedded some very unhealthy thought-forms deep in the unconscious content of his innermost self. He would go on to remember it as if it were a portend to his fate, later even using the swastika as a symbol of what his deluded mind would come to believe to be the master race of an ancient and powerful empire.
Adolf Hitler just got crazier and crazier as time went on. As a result of his incredibly abusive upbringing, starting as a young boy he developed a very severe conduct disorder. Adolf started to compulsively manipulate others for his own personal gain. Then, he became quite impulsive, irritable, and even aggressive towards those around him. He developed an absolute blatant disregard for safety along with a severe lack of remorse and this made him incredibly unstable and extremely dangerous. Eventually, he also became very prone to addiction due to severe mental illness, which predisposed him toward substance abuse.
After puberty struck, Adolf developed an extreme infatuation toward a young Jewish girl named Stefanie Rabatsch. Although she knew nothing of his intense feelings for her, Adolf became quite obsessed. He was always very compulsive in that way, but he was still quite awkward around girls in spite of his ridiculously over-inflated ego. So, having only ever confided his love for her to his friend August Kubizek, Adolf carried a great deal of resentment and even developed rejection issues based around his unrequited love of Stefanie. This planted a seed for his deeply-rooted anti-Semitism and his obscene sexual perversions, among other things.
In 1903 after Adolf Hitler’s father died, he experienced a massive psychotic break as he became overwhelmed by a rather severe early onset of antisocial personality disorder. Nonetheless, little Hitler took over the role of the male figurehead of the family. While his father was still alive Alois used to beat Klara in front of the kids all the time. So, in taking after his father and trying to emulate what he had done all those years, Adolf constantly bullied his little sister Paula, often beating her in the process. As a ridiculously headstrong teenager, he quickly grew to see the poor girl as a weak-willed embarrassment to the family. Then, he took everything he could out on her.
At age 17 after finding out that his mother had been diagnosed with cancer, Adolf persuaded a doctor to try a radical procedure on her. More or less out of sheer desperation Klara Hitler was given high doses of a disinfectant called iodoform. It was extremely painful and completely useless. So, after losing his father to problems related to chronic alcoholism at age 14, young Adolf then lost his mother at age 18 once she died of breast cancer. This was terribly important because he had respected his father and loved his mother dearly. The thing is that Adolf had a really long family history of schizophrenia, so his adult-onset after Klara’s passing in 1907 caused him to become incredibly delusional in his twenties.
After his mother died he broke down entirely. Hitler became schizophrenic from being so prostrate with grief. His Oedipus complex was very intense. This is why he became highly resistant to logic, refusing to accept even the slightest dispute or contradiction from anyone. More importantly, though, his condition caused him to hear voices in his head, and he became very prone to rather extravagant flights of fancy. As a result of this, numerous mental disorders changed his life forever. Psychotic episodes and so much more would plague his tormented mind for the rest of his life.
In his teens, Adolf Hitler dreamed of becoming an artist, like that of a poet or a painter. He was so incredibly gifted at painting and wanted nothing more than to make a living at it. So due to the good fortune of his parent’s inheritance, Adolf set out to live the life of a Bohemian in Vienna in his twenties. There he found the streets abuzz with Czechs, Croatians, Poles, Italians, and Jews all living together among one another in the same city. So, being the radical racist that he was, Adolf was absolutely appalled and disgusted by this, to say the least.
The thing is that although he was already very uptight about interracial mixing, he was still open to the idea of homosexuality at that time. While living in an all-male boarding house he began to experiment with his bisexual curiosities. Hitler rarely ever had sex in his entire life, but when he did it was terribly perverse. He got to the point of paying male prostitutes for sodomy, among other things. Hitler loved feces and his scatophilia eventually led to him contracting syphilis.
To make matters worse, he tried to get admitted into a very prestigious art school and was rejected. This just totally crushed his spirits. Soon his flagrant irresponsibility caught up with him after he spent all the money he had inherited. As a consequence of this, just before the First World War, Adolf was living life day-to-day struggling just to get by. So, to cope with the cognitive dissonance his incredibly fragile psychotic and schizophrenic ego was undergoing, he frantically grasped for something greater to believe in.
He somehow managed to scrounge up enough money to be able to go to the opera one day with a friend to listen to Wagner. Unfortunately, having recently begun to experience rather severe symptoms of his acute schizophrenia, Adolf underwent an episode of full-blown visual hallucinations in which he saw the gods and heroes of Norse legend brought to life right before his very eyes. This helped set the stage for Adolf Hitler to become a fanatic German nationalist.
In 1914 when Hitler was 25 years old, the declaration of war permanently altered the course of his life. He had previously fled Austria in a cowardly attempt to avoid military service, but now he was more than willing to go out to fight and even die for Germany if need be. He sought a sense of spiritual belonging with the country and he thought that he could get that by serving in their military. Along with this Hitler began to absolutely despise the French.
During the First World War, a voice in Adolf’s head spoke to him one day in the trenches directing him to get up and move from where he was. No sooner than he had left an incoming shell struck the very spot where he had been. He would have died with his fellow men otherwise. This simultaneously reaffirmed in him the belief that he was destined for greatness, and overwhelmed Adolf with tremendous grief.
Hitler firmly believed that Odin and the other Nordic gods were watching over him so that he could save the German people, and at the same time, part of him also believed that the God of the Christians favored him as well. Regardless, days before the war would end Adolf was completely without sight from the psychosomatic hysterical blindness that had overwhelmed him there on the front line.
In November of 1918 while in a psychiatric hospital where he was being treated for his condition, Adolf learned of the end of the German monarchy in favor of a republic with the armistice that marked defeat. When he heard of Germany’s surrender he had a complete mental breakdown. Then, with the vision of his task as savior, his sight was suddenly restored. Hitler now felt that he needed to become the next ruler of Germany. He would accept nothing less than becoming the father of the Fatherland. At that very moment, the future Fuhrer became convinced that it was his duty to the nation to restore the country to what he saw as its former greatness.
In his state of severe schizophrenic psychosis, he heard a voice that declared that it was his fate to liberate the German people from what he had come to believe was their most dangerous threat, the Jews. Later, in yet another fit of psychotic schizophrenia, Hitler had vivid visions of the German eagle being stabbed to death by the Jews. In his heart, he felt that they were totally corrupt and he carried that bigoted notion with him as a core principle for the rest of his life. This kind of anti-Semitism went back centuries before him, but Hitler took the grossly misguided sentiment to the most extreme levels possible with his insanely radicalized beliefs.
Hitler soon became quite familiar with the work of the journalist Guido von List and the occultist Helena Blavatsky. Guido was a German writer who took Blavatsky’s mythos and made it his own. She wrote an esoteric history of the world in which giants from the lost continent of Atlantis created a race of supermen known as the Aryans. Being as suggestible as he was, Hitler was drawn into the world of her strange notions and was also heavily influenced by other members of groups like the Golden Dawn during the heyday of the spiritualists.
Guido used Helena’s ideas to create his own set of myths based on Nordic traditions. In so doing he transplanted the Aryans from Persia to Northern Europe. He then declared Germans to be the master race, envisioning blonde-haired blue-eyed super-humans. This is where Hitler really began to feel that he was in the right place and on the right track in life. As part of this, he had an extensive collection of Ostara magazines which were written by a man named Lanz von Liebenfels.
At one point Adolf visited Lanz in his office, and that’s when he first began to really think about how to prevent the interbreeding of different nationalities of people. Hitler realized that he desperately wanted to achieve a kind of racial purification through programs that would provide sterilization and castration which would ultimately lead to complete extermination. This is how and why he first formed his thoughts about the Holocaust.
This was also right around the time that Hitler denounced the Treaty of Versailles which condemned Germany to pay enormous reparations that would create a great burden on the economy and become central to popular grievances. Things were getting so bad in fact that by then a full ten percent of the population had left the country to find work somewhere else. Hitler even began to disseminate anti-capitalist and anti-democratic propaganda, to help Germany achieve what he saw as a necessary socialist monarchy.
In 1919 at the age of 30, Hitler wanted nothing more than to serve in the German Army for President Ebert. So, Adolf Hitler reported back to duty and was stationed in a place where right-wing radicals often congregated in Bavaria. In his fragile mental state, he identified completely with their deeply held conservative national values. In the 1920s, in wanting to claim his own Germanic heritage, Hitler took to calling himself the “Wolf” because Adolf is a derivative of Athalwolf meaning noble wolf.
Then, the Free Corps became a kind of spawning ground for the very early Nazi movement. During that time Adolf began to tell on his fellow soldiers who he believed to be communists. His staunch anti-revolutionary fervor got him assigned the mission of reeducation of soldiers, such as prisoners of war and political dissidents among the ranks. His populism absolutely captivated everyone around him. This is when Hitler first truly realized that his charisma was incredibly powerful. He simply couldn’t wait to start using his amazing gift of oratory.
It was then that many of the veterans in Germany, who were already prone to separatist thinking, would gather in large beer halls to bond in solidarity. This was exactly what happened on August 13th of 1920 when Hitler made his political debut. He gave a lecture entitled “Why Are We Anti-Semitic”. This was the perfect strategy to attract nationalist-populist militants, and he knew it. In this way, by July of 1921 Hitler had brought together the first of his extremist followers.
He rose to power in the 1920s when the country was on the verge of economic and social collapse. Hitler pledged to revitalize Germany. The people were so desperate to hear what he was saying. His damaged mind needed the damaged populace and vice versa. In this way, a leader and his followers created a powerful feedback loop. Everything was primed for Hitler to dismantle the failing democratic republic and establish himself as the Fuhrer in order to save the nation.
In no time at all, the personality cult even bought him a brand new car which was quite extravagant at the time. Those around him could see that he would stop at nothing to make sure that his anti-capitalist and anti-Semitic ideas spread far and wide among the masses. That’s why and how he started the National Socialist German Workers Party. Thus giving rise to the Nazis.
Hitler funded the Nazis with party member donations and lots and lots of money from wealthy elites like Fritz Tyson who was a powerful steel magnate. Along with this Henry Ford was a Nazi sympathizer who contributed huge sums of money to the party as well. Fred Koch, the father of the brothers Charles and David, was an oil magnate that helped fuel the Nazi war machine, along with William Davis. Prescott Bush, the father of George Bush Senior, also profited from his involvement financially backing Hitler. Even Hugo Boss helped design the SA and SS uniforms and promoted them in his ad campaigns.
While designing their new insignia Hitler deliberately chose a red flag to show the movement’s social dimension, with a white circle for nationalism, and a swastika to symbolize the Aryan which he saw as an eternal anti-Semite. So to protect himself during their hate-filled meetings in the beer hall, Hitler had to form his first assault unit, the SA stormtroopers. As a result of all this, the party went from having 2,000 members to that of 20,000 in a very short time.
Soon the Thule Society became the cradle of the Nazi party. Initially, Hitler had been sent to spy on the members of the order by the German Army, but like he always did he became sympathetic to their cause, and vice versa. In 1922 the Thule society financed a newspaper and the publication quickly became the official newsletter of the Nazis. The editor was a staunch anti-Semitic theoretician and a prominent member of the Thule Society, named Volkischer Beobachter. In this way, he became a very important contributor to the horrible genocidal notions that led up to the Holocaust. He and other members of the Thule, like Rudolf Hess, were very instrumental in the early development of the Nazi party.
Adolf Hitler had fostered his personality cult by highlighting party submission to its leader. Then, a man named Heinrich Hoffman served as his official photographer, staging scenes to make Hitler seem grand. Along with this Hitler studied gestures and public speaking preparing for the huge rallies he knew would come. He learned how to use hatred to motivate the masses. Then he even began sending the SA to march into Jewish neighborhoods in large cities to attack innocent people.
Hitler absolutely refused to let Germany be treated like one of France’s colonies. The German economy was collapsing in on itself and everyone across the country was forced to suffer. This got so bad that it even prompted the mint to print lots and lots of money. Then hyperinflation skyrocketed totally out of control.
Adolf Hitler vowed to march on Munich and then Berlin. He felt that decisive action was justifiable and completely necessary to save Germany from a terrible depression that could inevitably lead to communism. So he and his band of men drunkenly advanced on police barricades. During the attempted coup Hitler was behind a bodyguard who was killed in the crossfire. That day in 1923 Hitler was arrested and the Nationalist Socialist Party was banned.
Three months after his arrest Hitler’s trial opened up in Munich where he was accused of high treason. This was punishable by the death penalty, so ironically Hitler threatened to kill himself in a strange twist of fate. Somehow Hitler managed to use his charisma to turn the trial into a pulpit for his party. The court soon became sympathetic and as a result, the verdict was simply five years of incarceration.
Then, in the rather lavish environment, they kept him in Hitler had a view of the countryside and was free to receive visitors at any hour. His cult following only grew stronger as a result. He quickly put together a rough draft of Mein Kampf then Nazi editors finished the work. Hitler was released in 1924 on good behavior. He spent most of his time after that in a Bavarian mountain village, where he wrote the second edition of Mein Kampf. It included new material that focused on expanding Germany into Russia.
In 1925 Hitler made his political comeback in the beer hall. The very next day the president of Germany died. Then the Nazis were able to make their move in the political vacuum. The ban on the party had been lifted and Hitler quickly took full advantage of that fact.
Nonetheless, in the end, the Germans elected Paul von Hindenburg as the second President of Germany. So Hitler just lied in wait as the Nazis grew to 170,000 members strong. His militia was now more like an army. The paramilitary order was filled with brutally violent fanatics. Their brown shirts were very similar to Mussolini’s blackshirts. Along with that Hitler copied much of his crowd control from Mussolini’s behavior.
In 1927 Hitler rented a place in his half-sister Angela’s name, then she and her daughter Geli moved in. Hitler was very overprotective of his niece, who he felt obligated to keep safe. So he basically locked her up and hid her away. On top of that Hitler had a fetish for much younger women, and his family was rather keen on incest. It was inevitable that Adolf and Geli would become intimate.
Hitler had a broad range of bizarre sexual proclivities. At one point he demanded that his niece give him a golden shower. He lay on the floor naked and asked Geli to squat over him and allow him to look at her genitals up close. This got him very aroused and then he told her to urinate on his face and when she did he climaxed. She was very disturbed by the whole thing and he was quite pleased.
Then to complicate things even further in 1929 Hitler began to see Eva Braun. She was only 17 at the time, and he was 40. Due to the scandalous nature of this affair, Hitler couldn’t go to her home. Instead, Eva would meet him in public in Munich at first. However after they really got together and Hitler moved her into the Berghof house he got busier and busier, inevitably spending less and less time with her. In the end, Hitler was always living in Berlin or Bavaria while she stayed in Munich.
While Eva was in one house Hitler was also seeing his niece Geli in Angela’s place at the same time. Then Geli found out and killed herself. On the 19th of September in 1931, she found a letter from Eva in Hitler’s coat pocket. A few hours later she committed suicide. After that, Hitler was absolutely inconsolable, he even created a special room to honor her and made it off-limits to everyone. It was a veritable shrine.
He scoured her room for a suicide note in an effort to make sense of what he saw as a totally senseless tragedy, to no avail. After that, he stayed indoors unable to eat or sleep for a couple of days because he was devastated by the loss of Geli. Within a week she was laid to rest in Vienna Central Cemetery. Ultimately he blamed himself for her death even admitting his guilt to her mother Angela. Nonetheless, his half-sister remained loyal to him. However, this highly stressful event did bring on the first signs of Parkinson’s disease in him. Hitler’s left arm became somewhat paralytic at that time.
In 1932 the Nazis had 230 seats, up from only 12 seats just four years earlier. Unfortunately for Hitler that was the same year that Eva Braun tried to commit suicide at age 20. She was Adolf’s new lover so of course, he had another psychotic break along with suicidal ideations of his own. By now depression was absolutely strangling Germany to death, and it was totally crushing Hitler as well.
Eva had attempted suicide with her father’s pistol but the bullet just missed the artery in her neck so she lived. Hitler immediately rushed to her bedside. To his immense relief, she had survived more or less unscathed. The thing is that this was an ongoing pattern of his in many ways, making him a sort of unintended serial killer. His insanity and ungodly perversity just made women snap. Their inability to leave and his inability to love drove them apart, the only way that it could.
Soon after that, the state began giving out copies of Mein Kampf to married couples as a wedding gift. The Nazi bible was then translated into numerous different languages and the royalties from sales were astronomical. Hitler became insanely rich as a result. Later, in a brilliant political move, he then exploited his camaraderie with the veterans of the First World War during a tremendously significant speech he gave in 1933. At the time half of the workforce of Germany was unemployed, so a labor party was bound to succeed. This was the decisive year when Germany refused to pay reparations.
Having acquired a great deal of wealth and knowing his neglect of Eva drove her crazy Hitler lavished her with designer clothing and gave her the privilege to do almost anything she ever wanted. He spent lots and lots of money trying to satisfy all of her unmet desires. He was constantly buying her fine jewelry and silks and furs, but all she really ever wanted was to spend time with her “Adi” and to hear him call her “my dear little one” with tender affection. Those days seemed to be long gone though.
This was also right around the time that some of Hitler’s family began to ask for money for one reason or another. It started with his older half-brother Alois Junior writing and calling trying to get startup capital for business ventures. Then his nephew William Patrick Hitler tried to capitalize on the family name by talking about his uncle Adolf to the press. He served as a constant source of shame and hatred for Hitler. Adolf even got William a job at a bank once, but his nephew had no work ethic so he blackmailed his uncle instead. William threatened to divulge secrets to members of the British press so Hitler begrudgingly complied. Adolf Hitler worried that William might have evidence of blight, possibly even Jewish ancestry in the family. In this way, his nephew was able to live a care-free life in the Third Reich.
Hitler came to see himself as a divinely appointed Emperor of Germany and he believed that the Nazi Empire would last a thousand years. In his mind, the First Reich was the Holy Roman Empire which lasted from 962 to 1806. Then the Second Reich was the German Empire which lasted from 1871 to 1918. Now he believed himself to be in charge of the Third Reich which began in 1933.
In 1934 a staggering 750,000 people gathered to see their new leader. Hitler became their socialist savior just as he had promised. He became a great redeemer of their unbearable poverty. At this point in history, the Germans felt a true sense of liberation from the capitalist democracy which had devastated their economy. Hitler was a living legend among them.
Unfortunately, Hitler had other plans for Germany as well. On November 15th of 1935, Hitler met with his top advisers to pitch what would become the infamous Nuremberg laws, stripping millions of Jewish people of their civil rights, and paving the way for the Holocaust. To do this, he copied many of the ideas from America’s Jim Crow laws. Then, members of the Jewish community in Germany truly became second-class citizens. The Nazis quickly normalized anti-Semitism. Jewish vendors were boycotted. People were even harassed and openly beaten in the streets.
Around this time Hitler’s country seat began to move with the seasons from Berlin to Bavaria and back again. Obersalzberg was a mountainside retreat high above the town of Berchtesgaden in the Bavarian Alps. There at the Berghof house, his cult following would come on a pilgrimage to see their beloved messiah. This infuriated the townspeople of Berchtesgaden. The black shirts and brown shirts were too much to take, let alone all the fanatical adjuration from his quasi-religious devotees.
In 1936 after Heinrich Hoffman got cured of gonorrhea Hitler then went to see Doctor Morell himself to get treated for his syphilis. Theo Morell was an expert in venereal disease and Hitler was getting worse. He had skin lesions on his shins and severe gastrointestinal pain. Hitler even gave the doctor a lakeside villa to keep his condition a secret. Thanks to Theo, Hitler then began to use amphetamines in pill form. This was also the year of the Nuremberg rally.
After that, Hitler quickly became incredibly dependent on drugs from Morell. If Hitler ever didn’t know where Morell was he would immediately begin to freak out. The two became a functioning unit. Ultimately Morell came to completely control Hitler’s mood by administering multiple shots daily. As part of this Adolf swung back and forth through lethargy and insomnia and was constantly on uppers and downers to help regulate his sleep cycle. Very quickly Hitler’s dependence on drugs began to severely affect his judgment. Meth injections made him manic and exacerbated his psychosis.
Later, the Fuhrer received a visit from the former head of Britain on September 4th of 1936 and was absolutely delighted. Shortly thereafter Hitler released a memo to his ministers declaring that Germany must have the best army and be ready for war within four years' time. Then on September 28th of 1937 Mussolini came for a visit. The two dictators met in Berlin to work on building a new military alliance in Europe. While he was there Hitler glared at him and laughed sarcastically in typical madman fashion. Hitler also signed a pact with Japan. Ultimately, the Fuhrer was gathering allies to prepare for his next big move. Hitler was absolutely obsessed. He would spend hours brooding over maps thinking about different territories.
In 1938 when Hitler was elected as the new Chancellor of Germany, the Nazis held a huge Pagan celebration in his honor. The Fuhrer got off on having power so much that he would actually have orgasms during his political speeches. This fueled his oratory even more. He even declared Germany to be his bride.
Later he annexed Austria to bring his country of origin into the nation he wanted to rebuild. He reunified his homeland into the Fatherland, and they built Adolf Hitler Square to commemorate the event. Then under the guise of using some of the Austrian territories as training grounds for the Nazis, Hitler had thousands of people displaced and acres of territory demolished. This erased all the remaining evidence of Hitler’s questionable ancestry in the area and put a stop to all further inquiry into his legitimate descent.
This was very important because Hitler didn’t know who one of his grandfathers was. The identity of his father’s father was completely unknown to him. All he really knew for sure was that his grandmother had married a man with the surname Hitler who was not his biological grandparent. This made Hitler a hypocrite who was unable to live up to the criteria of Nazi law which required that none of your parents or grandparents be Jewish. Everyone had to prove this to avoid persecution in Nazi Germany, but Hitler couldn’t ever know for sure.
Regardless, after the reunification of Austria Hitler now wanted the annexation of Czechoslovakia. As part of the expansion of his empire, he wanted the country to become part of the Third Reich so the Nazis disseminated propaganda among the masses to foster a racist attitude toward the Czechs. Then Hitler made an agreement with the Prime Minister of England to occupy Czechoslovakia with military force.
In August of 1939, Hitler sent a secret telegram to the Soviet leader regarding the invasion of Poland. Then, on September 1st of 1939, Hitler ordered his men to attack. Hitler wanted Danzig, then the corridor, but Poland refused to give in and become landlocked. Hitler’s outrage over this and the lack of human rights given to German natives in Poland caused him to invade. He even implemented a scorched-earth policy to see to it that everything was totally destroyed in the process.
Two days later Britain and France declared war on Germany. The Second World War had begun. Hitler demanded that the Poles surrender but they refused, even with the threat of the Red Army in reserve. So, Hitler, had Warsaw destroyed. The Nazis massacred 70,000 people and Poland collapsed as a nation. Hitler had intended this to be a threat display to help ward off Britain and France, but the whole thing was just entirely dismissed.
The Fuhrer then became filled with psychotic rage and now wanted to destroy England more than anything else. So, the Germans quickly got the allies on the run. At that point, Britain was the only thing standing in the way of the total conquest of Europe. However, by May of 1941 Hitler had lost the battle for Britain. Although his denial prevented the onset of cognitive dissonance.
He was now emboldened by his own enormous ego and moved on from Britain to focus on Russia. Hitler thought a campaign against the Soviet Union would be child’s play for his elite German soldiers. However many Nazi generals quickly began to doubt the leadership abilities of the Fuhrer, but with no one to oppose his authority a war on two fronts was inevitable. Hitler had dreamed of the socialist Fatherland crushing the communist Motherland for the better part of his adult life. Hitler wanted the Third Reich to spread across the globe. This meant the Nazis wanted to kill everyone but the Germans, including the Russians.
Not surprisingly, this was also the same year that Hitler ordered the Nazis to systematically eliminate the Jews in Germany. In total, more than six million Jews were murdered in an act of genocide that would last four years from start to finish. In this way, the Nazis were able to destroy nearly two-thirds of the Jews in Europe, in an atrocious act of ethnic cleansing. Of course, the Holocaust wasn’t just an anti-Semitic endeavor. Hitler ordered the death of tens of millions of people, for all sorts of despicable reasons.
Germany had targeted European Jews for extermination as part of a much larger plan that included the persecution and murder of several other groups as well. Along with being severely Judeophobic, Hitler had become intensely xenophobic, homophobic, Polonophobic, and so on and so forth. Thus, the Nazis massacred anyone and everyone that Hitler saw as different. This included, but was not limited to, those with mental and physical disorders, Gypsies, ethnic Poles, homosexuals, political opponents, Slavic groups, prisoners of war, and the Russians.
Just two short years after Germany made peace with Russia, Hitler had the Nazis invade on June 22nd of 1941. In August of that year in Ukraine Hitler visited his men at the front line against the Red Army. Unlike his other nephew William, Hitler had a nephew that he absolutely adored. Heinz Hitler attended elite Nazi training and even wanted to become an officer of the Third Reich. He went to war for his uncle against the Soviet Union to fight the Red Army. Adolf simply couldn’t have been more proud of his half-brother’s son.
Hitler felt like his eastern expansion of the empire was coming to fruition. He thought the Nazis were superhuman so he sent them in without proper clothing and supplies. He impulsively changed his invasion plans getting lots of troops senselessly killed in the process and postponing the campaign by months. Then mud season struck and the battle was lost in autumn. Hitler only sent lightweight vehicles instead of tanks. His megalomania and belief in German superiority got the best of him. The Motherland-loving communists stood united in defiance of the Fatherland-loving socialists and won. The Red Army had a quarter of a million German troops surrounded.
In February of 1942, after the battle of Stalingrad, Hitler’s health declined severely and he was put on lots of bed rest and medication. At that point, he learned that his nephew Heinz Hitler had gone missing in action. Hitler was devastated by the news of this. Shortly after that, the Nazis started to develop contingency plans in case the war was ever lost. As part of this, they wanted to stage the death of Adolf Hitler.
Martin Bormann either wanted to make it appear like Hitler went insane and killed himself out of desperation or he wanted to make it look like Hitler had been murdered by a Jewish assassin in an effort to help further the anti-Semitic cause. The Nazis still weren’t sure exactly what they would do, they just knew that if the time came they would need to get Hitler out of the country by making the rest of the world think that he was dead.
In December of 1942, both doctors Morell and Brandt revealed potentially life-threatening conditions to the Fuhrer regarding the hardening of his arteries and the degradation of his nervous system. Then, in that same month, Adolf Hitler instituted a draft that required all men and boys to fight for at least one year, even the elderly. This was clearly an act of sheer desperation on his part. He eventually had teenagers on duty 24 hours a day in the German Army.
Hitler began to experience more and more cognitive dissonance as his country became more and more defeated during WWII. This clash with his belief that he was the Nazi messiah caused him to retreat more and more from the public. In 1943 Hitler headed to his secret headquarters in Rastenburg known as the Wolf’s Lair. This was a massive camouflaged hideout deep in the woods complete with underground bunkers.
At that point, Hitler directed the entire war from there, although his physical and mental health was declining as his conditions worsened. He hunched and trembled and shuffled along. The luster was totally gone from his eyes. So in July of 1943 when there was an incredibly decisive meeting with Mussolini to stay aligned with Hitler, Theo Morell shot the Fuhrer up with a bunch of different drugs. As a result, things went even better than planned.
To make matters worse for Hitler, in 1944 a bomb exploded in the Wolf’s Lair. As he always did Adolf managed to avoid premature death. However, he then began to think the traitors were the reason that his plans had been failing. So he ordered the arrest of some 500 people who were suspected in the attempted assassination of the Fuhrer. 200 of those were then executed.
Shortly before the end of the Second World War, Adolf Hitler arranged for his sister Paula to be taken to a mountain safe house. He loved her very dearly and he wanted her to be safe so he had her living under the name of Paula Wolf. She had even wanted to marry someone but Hitler saw the man as unfit so he sent him off somewhere to die in battle.
Being surrounded on all sides, with the world closing in on him, Hitler became dead set on the use of long-range missiles. He thought that nuclear weapons would offer him a turning point in the war and a path to the total annihilation of his enemies. Then on his 56th birthday, on April 20th of 1945, Hitler made his last ever public appearance. He told the German people that the war could still be one, but deep inside he knew otherwise.
Just days earlier Morell had finally begun treating Hitler for his Parkinson’s disease. However, it was around this time that the Fuhrer learned that the doctor had been trying to poison Hitler, whether he actually intended to or not. The anti-flatulence pills that Theo had been giving Adolf for years contained both strychnine and deadly nightshade. As a result of this, on April 21st of 1945 Hitler relieved Morell of his duty as the personal physician of the Fuhrer of the Third Reich.
By the end of the Second World War, Adolf Hitler really began to show his age. He became incredibly weak and enfeebled. Nonetheless, the inner circle of Nazis was hard at work staging Hitler and Eva’s death in order to keep them alive and get them out of Germany. Before they escaped from the bunker Adolf finally made an honest woman out of Eva, no longer seeing Germany as his bride. There was a quaint little wedding and everything. Meanwhile, the corpses that Bormann presented of Adolf and Eva were actually decoy bodies that he wrapped up. Martin and other high ranking officials staged everything so that the Fuhrer and his wife could be escorted away by Nazi soldiers, while the world watched the bodies burn.
After the end of the Second World War, Hitler wanted nothing more than to build bombs and destroy the whole entire world. So he set off to go to South America to create weapons of mass destruction. He switched his target from the USSR to that of the USA. More importantly, he had already succeeded in destroying millions of people in Europe and now he wanted to murder billions across the Earth.
Hitler had previously wanted Berlin to be the new world capital. So there was a veritable city beneath the city with 93 miles of sprawling tunnels. This had independent power, heating, and ventilation. Adolf Hitler and Albert Speer had designed the underground system to move hundreds of thousands of people efficiently throughout the city. So after the war was lost this provided shelter and safety as well as a means of escape.
On April 29th of 1945, Luftwaffe Captain Baumgart flew Hitler out of Berlin in a Me108 on a makeshift runway that had recently been made on the avenue extending from the Brandenburg Gate. The Nazis had removed all the lamp posts from the street to clear the way. So, after successfully extracting Hitler from Russian occupied Berlin Captain Baumgart landed at a secret outpost in Denmark. In spite of the fact that the runway was only grass and it was the middle of the night, the mission was a complete success.
In early May of 1945, Hitler flew out of Tonder, Denmark and into San Sebastian, Spain. This was a major hub in the Nazi ratlines. Although Spain had officially been neutral during the war, Hitler had received a promise of sanctuary if he ever needed it. So Adolf called in a favor from Francisco Franco to arrange safe passage. After all, Hitler had helped Franco win the civil war that got him to power by financing his campaign immensely. Franco owed Hitler big and in his gratitude, he agreed to put Hitler up in a number of safe houses.
Hitler went to the Saint Benedict Monastery in Montserrat where he received sanctuary with the Vatican’s consent. Pope Pius XII had already helped Hitler destroy German Catholic political opposition, thus betraying the Jews by making a deal with a ruthless dictator. During WWII the Pope had agreed not to denounce the Holocaust if Hitler would agree never to bomb a church. Pope Pius also helped Hitler and the Nazis make their way through Spain after the war.
From Montserrat, they went to Barcelona. There Hitler and Bormann had a special meeting with Franco that Mueller had arranged on April 20th. Then Hitler took a small plane with a pilot and three other people into the small town of Corneas where they touched down in a potato field. From there Hitler set off toward an old monastery in Samos. They went there because Abbott Mauro had ties to both Prime Minister Franco and Pope Pius. From there Hitler went west to Vigo, and Bormann went south to Cadiz to begin executing their new plans. In this way, Hitler left Spain by way of a U-Boat out of the port of Vigo and headed out into the Atlantic Ocean.
After leaving Vigo Hitler arrived in the Canary Islands to refuel and get more supplies for the trip to Argentina. He stayed there a few days to recuperate from the grueling journey. Franco had secretly used Spanish funds to build Nazi infrastructure during the war even though they were officially neutral. While there Hitler stayed in Gustav Winter’s Villa, where his personal physician treated him for all of the various ailments with which he was afflicted.
The submarines that brought Hitler and his men to Argentina landed along the tip of the Valdes Peninsula on the southern tip of the country near the highest point on the skyline in Caleta de Los Loros. Hitler’s ship was the second to emerge and he was accompanied by his wife, his doctor, another female, and several men. After everyone disembarked from the U-boats the submarines were scuttled in the bay. Then in San Antonio Oeste a prominent man named Geraldo Lahusen owned a bank and several businesses and helped finance Hitler’s stay in Argentina.
In addition to this 6 top Argentinian officials sent 4 men to meet up with about 50 Germans who had landed there. So, once on land in San Antonio Oeste Hitler was able to safely travel inland toward the foothills of the southern Andes. Lahusen owned several train cars one of which the Fuhrer boarded and headed 400 miles to the small town of Bariloche.
Years earlier an architect by the name of Alejandro Bustillo had been commissioned to design numerous structures all along the lake, including bunkers, towers, and barracks. As part of this, there was a large compound in Teyu Chare Park as well as the main base in Manuel Huapi Park. These sites were all built in secret.
The architectural blueprints for a place called the Inalco house were copied from the Berghof house. Both had bedrooms connected by bathrooms, walk-in closets, and even a tea house by a farm. Then a lawyer named Enrique Merou had lived in the house in case and until Hitler ever needed it. While at the residence Merou had the place decorated and furnished. He even had Swiss cows imported from Europe.
By July of 1945 the Inalco estate had become Hitler’s new home in the remote lakeside jungle hideaway there in Argentina. There the Nazis maintained vast stretches of farmland behind the enormous house in order to sustain him. It was a beautiful Patagonian Paradise with a Bavarian-style mansion, which was about 630 square feet on 1120 acres in total. There Adolf Hitler became a man known locally in Miceones as Mr. Olrera, although the Nazis still knew him to be the Fuhrer.
On July 17th of 1945, Stalin told Churchill, Eisenhower, and other world leaders that he believed Hitler to still be alive. As a result, intelligence agencies like MI6 and the CIA soon became involved in a global manhunt for the Fuhrer. In no time at all, it became apparent that the Third Reich was not yet over.
In mid-August of 1945, Hitler visited hundreds of Nazis, 675 miles west of Florianopolis and 450 miles north northwest of Buenos Aires. They were hidden in a compound in Charata. There was an underground railroad for war crime fugitives. Carlos Buck and others helped Hitler set up shop in this way. There were clandestine travel routes that connected Charata to the vast territories of the provinces of Entre Rios, Misiones, and others. The Nazis controlled a system of roadways known only to them. Hitler moved around throughout the country in this way.
There was a complex of three large buildings in Misiones that served as part of this on the water's edge in the remote jungle. One of these was a rather lavish two-bedroom home. In that way, Hitler remained opulent even after the end of the Second World War. Meanwhile, thousands of Nazi war criminals found refuge in Argentina with him. However, Hitler couldn’t receive political exile himself because he was supposed to be dead, so they just hid him away.
To continue with his new plans Hitler spent a few weeks in La Falda, Argentina staying with the Eichhorn family in their house and in the Hotel Eden which was connected by a secret tunnel. Then he went to Mandl Castle to stay a couple of weeks with Fritz. He was an arms dealer that provided lots of weapons to the Nazis. Mandl even agreed to use his bicycle factory in Buenos Aires to create numerous munitions for the Nazis. Ultimately he provided them with guns, bombs, and bullets. He even manufactured their airplanes.
One day, unable to resist a good invitation to the ballet Hitler took Eva to attend the first performance of a 3-day run which was a closed-door event for very important people. So on February 5th of 1947 Hitler went to the ballroom of the Atlantic hotel in Cassino, Brazil. The building was a posh establishment owned by Nazi sympathizers and often used for meetings of local cells there in Brazil. So the outing was really more for business than pleasure.
Near the end of 1947 Hitler, two German physicists, and a couple of Luftwaffe pilots took a plane to Bogota, Colombia with plans for the V3 Skyrocket bomb. Once they landed, the Nazi pilots burned the plane and the remains were pushed into the La Florida marsh. Hitler was very intent on building nuclear weapons and he was going to use them to strike Manhattan Island first and foremost. He thought that having New York as his principal target would help to spread fear all across the world.
In no time at all, the town of Bariloche in the Misiones province served as the new headquarters of the Third Reich which was no longer based in Germany but rather Argentina. President Peron then set up a nuclear research facility so the Nazis could continue their plans to build weapons of mass destruction. Peron devised what was known as the Huemul Project which was supposed to create a fusion-powered device known as the Thermotron.
A man named Ronald Richter was summoned from Germany to take over the project. This is very important because two months before the end of the Second World War Richter had detonated test bombs in Thuringia Germany, so he was very eager to pick up where he had left off. He was expected to produce results in 2 years or less. Richter was told that he would be provided with anything he needed. He was stationed just 30 miles south of the Inalco house, which meant that he was close enough for Hitler to keep an eye on but just far enough away for him to avoid harm in the event of an accident. The research facility consisted of 10 different buildings on Huemul Island, including a power station with three massive generators.
After Peron was deposed in a military coup on September 19th of 1955, the nuclear research facility and other buildings in Manuel Huapi Park were demolished by the government of Argentina. So, Hitler switched his revenge plans to Chile where Martin Bormann and Paul Schafer were stationed. There, Bormann ran the Spider, which was a highly sophisticated group of expatriates with members all over the country. Along with this, Schafer ran Colonia Dignidad, which was a massive self-sufficient compound complete with an enormous mountaintop guard tower and a munitions factory right on site. They were even manufacturing lethal sarin gas in one of the buildings, as part of a backup plan to destroy the world.
In the end with Hitler’s body and mind totally ravaged by the crippling effects of Parkinson’s disease and syphilitic dementia, Martin Bormann really ran everything. Around that time Eva left Hitler and moved to Neuquen. Then, Merou turned the Inalco house over to a man named Jorge Antonio. He was another Nazi sympathizer who helped Hitler remain there in secret. Antonio was a powerful associate of President Peron and the German representative of Mercedes-Benz there in Argentina. In this way, Adolf Hitler was able to live in the small town of Bariloche in the province of Miceones until February of 1962 when he finally died.
