A boy, but not just any boy. This fair skinned child with loving parent, would one day become one of the most feared men ever to walk the earth. This man?s name was Adolf Hitler. Adolf Hitler was born in the small Austrian village of Braunau Amlnn, just across the border from German Bavaria. He was born into a poor family with an embarrassing past. This past would prove to be a lifelong embarrassment and concern to him. Adolf?s father was named Alois Schicklgruber. Alois was the illegitimate son of Maria Anna Schicklgruber. It is widely
