Adolf Hitler was born April 20th, 1889, the second child to an Austrian family near the German border. The town of Braunau Am Inn laid claim to his birthright, a blessing which has changed over the years into a cursed German hallmark. records indicate his father was an illegitimate son of a maid, and his rise to middle level administrator was a proud one. Neither wealthy nor noble, Hitler wallowed somewhat petulantly in an ill-defined role.
The German love of order reigned inside Hiter, but not financial success. A favoured younger brother absorbed the weightier approval from the father, while Hitler absorbed the abusive basis of Pere (his father) Hitler, and Adolf grew up neither petted nor spoiled. Herr Hitler’s Pro-Austrian identification has been seen as a trigger from Adolf Hitler’s later Social Nationalism and promotion of same. Hitler’s unsettled relationships with both parents set the stage for a lack of stable psychological environment as a norm.
Hitler’s influence received at the childhood Benedictine monastery echoed the experience of Coco Chanel, in that the symbolism of an emblem experienced early remained later in life. Except Hitler adopted the influence of totemic symbol of the swastika whereas Chanel absorbed the contrast between black and white symbolizing poverty. Ironically Chanel would take a Nazi lover in Paris during World War II to shield her fashion empire form ruin.
When his father died, Hitler had already had problems in school as an aggressive personality who liked to play pranks and whet his taste for bullying. In 1900’s Germany this was a hallmark of rebelliousness and countercultural leanings in a country marked by axiomatic order. But Hitler went too far with his pranks and got reduced to public school, then was thrown out that institution.
Conventional success would never be his, so Hitler strove for unconventional success. Yet when denied admission to the Vienna Academy of Art, Hitler looked to a future in architecture. But his failure in school had left him without a modicum of formal preparation or academic foundation to do so. Homeless by 1909, Hitler had succeeded nowhere and exhausted all the material resources he’d received.
Adolf Hitler did not grow to manhood in the accepted German manner. His academic career was a failure and his artistic and creative endeavors ended before they started. He was not accepted by the Army. He did not fulfill a course of study at university. His romantic relationships led nowhere and he had no coterie of close friends or peers. His mentor may have been a former teach who merely passed on his grandiose admiration of Bismarck.
Hitler soon meandered into a consensus building role in small groups at the fringe of negligible social milieus, the exact place one would find impressionable people willing to do anything to make something of themselves. Hitler adapted his bullying skills into mature manipulation of weaker personalities. His adeptness at weaving together the fears of others paired with their alacritous response to psychological cues was Germany’s undoing.
After the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923, Adolf Hitler cemented his views in Mein Kampf as a projected proto-realism of German identity. Absent from this identity was either the European Jew or the Orthodox Jew. When Hitler tried to escape army service, a medical discharge excused him. Then he joined World War I with the Bavarian army. Hitler’s romantic ideas about Germany and its entitlements would find willing companions in other minds and hearts.
Did Adolf Hitler really hate the Jews? Hitler’s failed painting career formed an envy of both their command of artistic talent and their tribal and monetary sponsorship of it (even his own). Adolf Hitler unconsciously created a vacuum in the world of art and architecture by designing their extrusion from Europe. If Hitler would have overcome Allied powers and gained control of the civilized world, no Jewish architects, designers, or artistic competitors would have been left and as had dictator he would have had his pick of “commissions”. ?
