Adolf's Childhood

Adolf Hitler did not have a pleasant childhood. Adolf's mother, Klara, showered him with affection. Although he loved her, at times he greatly yearned for independence. Alois, Adolf's father, was the complete opposite of his mother. Being older than 50 at the time of having children, he had very little patience for the 5 who ran about his home. Alois became an alcoholic, thus being violent and very irritable. He often would beat his children, wife, and even their dog. Alois Jr, Alolf's half brother, got the worst of the beatings. Their mother rarely stepped in to stop the beatings of Alois Jr, as she always did with her own son. This resulted in Alois Jr. greatly disliking his half brother, Adolf. Being the eldest boy in the house (after Alois Jr. ran away from home at age 14), Adolf often argued with Alois. His sister and half-sister recall very much yelling and arguing.
