From early on in his political career, Adolf Hitler was known for his enthusiastic — sometimes even frenetic — style of speech-making. Hitler used populist themes and tapped into the fear, resentment and insecurity of vast swathes of German society, which were experiencing hardship and feelings of defeat after the First World War. In speeches as well as writing, he could express himself diplomatically, but as evinced below, his true knack was to demonise, inspire hatred and ultimately war and genocide. I want today to be a prophet again: if international Jewry inside and outside of Europe should succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, the result will not be the Bolshevisation of the earth and therefore the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe. Reichstag, 30 January

Adolf Hitler was chancellor of Germany from to , serving as dictator and leader of the Nazi Party , or National Socialist German Workers Party, for the bulk of his time in power. As a child, Hitler clashed frequently with his emotionally harsh father, who also didn't approve of his son's later interest in fine art as a career. Following the death of his younger brother, Edmund, in , Hitler became detached and introverted. Hitler showed an early interest in German nationalism, rejecting the authority of Austria-Hungary. This nationalism would become the motivating force of Hitler's life.
Hitler's rise to power was based upon long-term factors - resentment in the German people, the weakness of the Weimar system - which he exploited through propaganda paid for by his rich, Communist-fearing backers , the terror of his stormtroopers, and the brilliance of his speeches. During the 'roaring twenties' Germans ignored this vicious little man with his programme of hatred. But when the Great Depression ruined their lives, they voted for him in increasing numbers. Needing support, and thinking he could control Hitler, President Hindenburg made the mistake in January of giving Hitler the post of Chancellor. Simple summary. History learning - excellent.
