Adolf Hitler
By Sharon Fabian

1     Adolf Hitler was the fourth child of a customs official and a farmer's daughter. He was born on April 20, 1889, in Braunau am Inn, Austria, a small town across the river from Germany.
2     During high school, he did poorly in school and did not seek higher education. He said that he wanted to be an artist.
3     In 1907, Hitler moved to Vienna, Austria, where he planned to attend art school. However, he was not accepted into art school. Hitler remained in Vienna anyway.
4     In 1914, as World War I was beginning, Hitler moved to Germany and joined the German army. Army records show that he took on dangerous assignments in the army and was awarded medals for bravery.
