Adolf Hitler, a future chancellor and dictator of Nazi Germany, was born on 20 April 1889, in a town in the Innviertel region of Upper Austria. However, when Hitler was three, the family moved to Passau, a town in South-eastern Germany, which was where his distinctive lower Bavarian accent came from. The death of his younger brother Edmund, in 1900, deeply affected Hitler. He changed from being confident and outgoing and an admirable student, to a choleric, detached, and petulant boy who constantly fought with his father and teachers. Death played a major factor in the Hitler household, with only Adolf and his sister Paula surviving into adulthood.
At the age of twenty six Hitler served as a runner on the Western Front in France and Belgium and was decorated for bravery, receiving the Iron Cross, Second Class, in 1914. After World War One Hitler remained in the army and returned to Munich where in July 1919 he was appointed Verbindungsmann (intelligence agent) to influence other soldiers and to infiltrate the German Workers’ Party, D.A.P. The D.A.P. started out as a small party in Bavaria called the German Workers Party. They were borne out of dismay at the defeat in World War One.
