  • Allied air forces attacked Nazi industrial plants, such as the one at the Achwitz camp though the gas chambers were never targeted.
  • On September 1, 1939, the beginning of the German attack, Great Britain and France sent Adolf hitler an ultimatum - either withdraw German forces from Poland or Great Britain and France would go to war against Germany

  • 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 died because he committed suicide
  • Hitler is considered one of the most evil people in history because of the holocaust
  • Since the world was extremely sensitive about the possibility of starting another world war, Hitler was able to annex Austria in 1938 without a single battle. But when he had his forces enter Poland in August 1939, the world could no longer stand aside and just watch World War II began.
  • On April 1, 1933, the Nazis instigated their first action against German Jews by announcing a boycott of all Jewish-run businesses.
  • After World War II started in 1939, the Nazis began ordering Jews to wear a yellow star of david on their clothing so that Jews could be easily recognized and targeted.
  • Although many people refer to all Nazi camps as "concentration camps," there were actually a number of different kinds of camps, including concentration camps, extermination camps, labor camps, prisoner-of-war camps, and transit camps.
  • Prisoners transported to these extermination camps were told to undress to take a shower. Rather than a shower, the prisoners were herded into gas chambers and killed At Chelmno, the prisoners were herded into gas vans instead of gas chambers
  • At a number of Nazi concentration camps, Nazi doctors conducted medical experiments on prisoners against their will.
  • However, Hitler also had four other siblings that died in childhood: Gustav , Ida , Otto and Edmund
  • 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.

  • No one is quite sure where or how Hitler picked up his virulent antisemitism. Some say it was because of the questionable identity of his grandfather was Hitler's grandfather Jewish Others say Hitler was furious at a Jewish doctor that let his mother die. However, it is just as likely that Hitler picked up a hatred for Jews while living on the streets of Vienna, a city known at the time for its antisemitism.
