Adolf Hitler, born on April 20, 1889, in Braunau am Inn, Austria, was the leader of the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazi Party) and Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945. He rose to power during a period of economic instability, capitalizing on widespread discontent following Germany's defeat in World War I and the subsequent Treaty of Versailles, which imposed harsh reparations and territorial losses on the country.

Hitler's ideology was characterized by extreme nationalism, anti-Semitism, and anti-communism. He outlined his beliefs in his book, "Mein Kampf" (My Struggle), written during his imprisonment in 1924. Hitler promoted the idea of Aryan racial superiority and sought to establish a totalitarian state to realize his vision of a "Greater Germany."

Once in power, Hitler rapidly consolidated his control, eliminating political opponents and enacting policies that led to the systematic persecution of Jews, Roma, disabled individuals, political dissidents, and other groups deemed undesirable. This culminated in the Holocaust, the genocide of six million Jews and millions of others during World War II.

Hitler's aggressive foreign policy aimed at territorial expansion led to the invasion of Poland in 1939, triggering World War II. Initially, Germany achieved significant military successes, but the tide turned after the failed invasion of the Soviet Union and the entry of the United States into the war.

As the Allies closed in on Berlin in April 1945, Hitler retreated to his bunker, where he committed suicide on April 30, 1945. Germany surrendered shortly thereafter, marking the end of the war in Europe. Hitler's legacy is one of unparalleled destruction and atrocity, with his actions profoundly shaping the course of the 20th century and leaving an indelible mark on history.
