Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was an Austrian-born German politician and the leader of the Nazi Party (German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei; NSDAP).
Hitler was born in 1889. He joined the German army in 1914 and became a corporal. Hitler participated in World War I, but he was wounded twice and discharged from duty.
After his discharge, Hitler returned to Munich where he led an unsuccessful coup attempt against the Bavarian government. The failed coup resulted in him serving 9 months of imprisonment at Landsberg Prison where he wrote “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) which outlined his political ideology
In 1933, Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany after President Hindenburg appointed him as Chancellor
He was Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and head of state (“Führer und Reichskanzler”) from 1934 to 1945. Hitler is commonly associated with the rise of fascism in Europe, World War II, and the Holocaust (The Holocaust is the term generally used to assign a specific meaning to the systematic mass killings of approximately six million European Jews during World War II by Nazi Germany, under Adolf Hitler’s directives, with collaboration from much of the rest of Europe as well as some foreign elements) in which approximately 6 million Jews were killed by Nazis and their collaborators.
Death of Adolf Hitler
The article would go on to talk about how Hitler committed suicide in the burning bunker using a pistol.
How Hitler Died?
On April 30, 1945, Adolf Hitler committed suicide. He shot himself after the defeat at the Battle of Berlin.
Hitler’s bodyguard Rochus Misch described how he saw Hitler being carried away to his private apartment in the bunker. He said that just before closing the door to the antechamber, he heard a loud gunshot.
Rochus Misch has been interviewed by many people about what happened that day and there are slight variations in his accounts but this is probably because he was recalling things from 70 years ago.
There are overall similarities between all of them though. About 90% of what he says matches up with other witnesses’ versions of so it seems likely that it happened just as he describes it.
The death of Adolf Hitler is one of the most important events from World War II.
On April 30th, 1945, Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife Eva Braun. In a bunker under Berlin, they both died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds to avoid capture by Soviet forces who were rapidly advancing from the east.
Their bodies were not discovered until May 5th, when their dog refused to leave the spot of their death for more than 12 hours and Red Army soldiers finally found them in an underground room below what had been Hitler’s study.
The following day, members of the Wehrmacht carried out orders given before their deaths – namely burning all incriminating documents and other materials in order to prevent any further humiliation or damage if captured by enemy troops
Their bodies were burned later by an SS soldier, while Soviet troops advanced on the city. This event came to be known as “The Death of Adolf Hitler”.
On May 2nd, Germany surrendered unconditionally and on May 8th V-E day was declared officially. More than twenty million people died in WWII including civilians and military personnel.
