Adolf Hitler

The character I have chosen to write about is Adolf Hitler. I chose him because he is
the bad guy/villain in the book ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ and I know a lot
about him.
Adolf Hitler emerged out of the anger of the defeat from World War I. He wanted to
create the perfect race - The Aryans. He felt that Germany and Germans should be
pure. He discriminated against many people, including: Educators, Romans,
Communists, Homosexuals, Jews and the mentally and physically disabled people
and others deemed unfit for the survival in Nazi Germany.
In the novel, Bruno feels that the ‘Fury’ (Führer) is an authoritative man. The ‘Fury’
was the rudest guest Bruno had ever witnessed. ‘He turned around and walked
directly into the dining room and promptly sat down at the head of the table - in
Father’s seat! He thinks the ‘Fury’ is a horrible man. This quote is from the book; it
shows that even then he had no humility.
He discriminated against many people who didn’t have fair hair or blue eyes - even
though they were Germans - which seems quite a funny thought because Hitler
himself did not have these features.
World War II commenced when Hitler invaded Poland on the 1st of September 1939.
He rose to power through the Nazi Party, an organization he created after returning
as a humiliated wounded soldier from the annihilating trench warfare of World War I.
He was responsible for the mass genocide of over a million Jews and the creation of
concentration and death camps. His approach was to cleanse the German people of
any race/colour that he did not deem pure.
No one likes the Führer. He is a small man with a tiny moustache and he wears
soldiers’ clothes. He is an authoritative man, the evidence is that he is commanding
the German kingdom of soldiers, fighting to protect their families and their beloved
country, to avoid yet another humiliating defeat at the hands of the British Empire.
