Adolf
Hitler
was
an
Austrian-born
German
politician
and the leader
of the Nazi Party
(NSDAP); National Socialist German Workers Party).
He was chancellor
of Germany from
1933 to 1945 and
dictator of
Nazi Germany
(as Führer und Reichskanzler)
from 1934 to 1945. He was at
the centre of
the founding
of Nazism,
World War II,
and the Holocaust.

A decorated veteran
of World War I,
Hitler joined
the German Workers'
Party (precursor of the NSDAP)
in 1919, and
became leader of the NSDAP in 1921. In 1923, he attempted
a coup d'état,
known as the
Beer Hall Putsch,
in Munich.
The failed coup
resulted
in Hitler's
imprisonment,
during which
time he
wrote his
memoir,
Mein Kampf
(My Struggle).
After his release
in 1924,
Hitler gained
popular support
by attacking
the Treaty of
Versailles and
promoting Pan-Germanism,
antisemitism, and
anti-communism
with
charismatic oratory
and Nazi propaganda.
After his
appointment
as chancellor
in 1933,
he transformed
the Weimar Republic
into the Third Reich,
a single-party
dictatorship
based on the
totalitarian
and autocratic
ideology of Nazism.
His aim was to
establish a
New Order of
absolute Nazi German
hegemony in continental Europe.

Hitler's
foreign and
domestic policies
had the goal of
seizing Lebensraum
("living space") for the Germanic people. He directed the rearmament of Germany and the invasion of Poland
by the Wehrmacht in
September 1939,
resulting in the
outbreak of World War II in Europe.
Under Hitler's
rule, in 1941 German
forces and
their
European
allies occupied
most of
Europe and
North Africa.
By 1943,
Hitler's
military
decisions led to
escalating
defeats.
In 1945 the
Allied armies
successfully
invaded Germany.
Hitler's
supremacist and
racially
motivated policies
resulted
in the
systematic
murder of
eleven million people,
including an estimated
six million
Jews, and
in the deaths of
between
50 and 70 million
people in World War II.

In the final
days
of the war,
during the
Battle of Berlin in 1945,
Hitler married
his long-time
mistress, Eva Braun.
On 30 April 1945,
less than two days later, the
two committed
suicide to avoid
capture by
the Red Army,
and
their
corpses
were
burned.
