Was Hitler’s Body Ever Identified? Essay, Research Paper Was Hitler?s body ever identified? Everyone gets a good kick out of magazines like the National Enquirer and Globe because everything written in them is a lie. One commonly written headline in those magazines is ?Elvis has been spotted,? or ?Elvis lives, he never really was dead!!? These are the things written about today. However, about fifty years ago there was something similar going on, although it wasn?t about Elvis, it was about sightings of Adolph Hitler. The goal of this aspect of the Mysteries of History project was to prove weather or not Adolph Hitler?s body was identified. In most of the books about Hitler that were looked into, the stories concerning the death, suicide and what happened afterwards were

almost identical. However, before the death and end of his life is discussed, the reader should know what Hitler was all about. Adolph Hitler was born on April 20th, 1889. He was born in Austria, right near the German border. According to Hitler, that date began Mein Kampf (My struggle), Hitler?s political autobiography and blueprint for a new Germany. Hitler?s life began as him being a sensitive, artistic boy. By the age of eleven, he was a committed nationalist who had ?learned to understand the meaning of history.? When Hitler was thirteen years old, his life took a dramatic turn. On January 3, 1903, Adolph?s father, Alois Hitler passed away from a massive pleural hemorrhage. He toppled over at the table and was dead before the doctor arrived. Hitler was very much interested

in the arts and dropped out of high school at the age of sixteen so he could sketch and day dream all day. At the age of twenty-two, Hitler felt that he was alone and adrift. He needed an enemy to blame for all his problems. One day he was walking down the street and encountered a man. The first thought that went through his head was ?Is this man a Jew?? Hitler then proceeded to buy his first anti-Semitic pamphlets. He had a lot of literature to choose from in his new study. Hitler was a firm believer in the statement that ?The Jews were a desert-derived race- intellectually dry and spiritually barren. Germans, on the other hand were an instinctive, romantic, and profound people. So, on and on his hate obsession went until July of 1921 when Hitler took control of the Nazi party.

He was the head-honcho, the ringleader. Violence had always been central to Hitler?s views. It drew attention, instilled fear, and lead to domination. Gangs of Storm Troopers beat Jews in the streets for entertainment. Hitler had the Nazi?s invade theaters and plays if the show was something he considered decadent. Hitler became a master propagandist. He chose the color red because of its high impact. He adopted the swastika because the Ehrhardt Brigade had made it stand for assertion of the Tuetonic will. He presented the symbol everywhere, on armbands, lapel pins, banners, ever-larger flags. Hitler staged flag ceremonies and the crowds rapidly started growing larger. His entrances were always dramatic and whole assembly?s of people would yell ?Heil, Heil Hitler!? 1924 to 1929

became known to some as ?The Wilderness Years.? Nazi?s and followers of Hitler were constantly bombarding the streets. From the years of 1929 to 1932, Hitler continued to gain power and leadership. Finally, 1933 and 1934, the Nazi?s seized power. They began to take control. Hitler was appointed as chancellor in January of 1933. Then, on August 2, 1934, President Hindenburg died and Hitler appointed himself Fuhrer, leader of the nation and commander-in-chief, of its army. The failed art student from Vienna had become absolute leader of Germany. World War II began in September 1939 after Hitler invaded Poland. On it raged for six years. Six years of hate, destruction, and brutality, simply because of a powerful, full of hate, leader, Adolph Hitler. Concerning Hitler?s supposed
