Every person on earth who is aware of Hitler’s name and his evil deeds will agree that Adolf Hitler is the most abhorred person in the history of the world. He was the most notorious villain of the Modern History who has bloods of millions of people on his hands. If there were a machine to measure the hatred in the hearts of the people towards this Satan’s incarnate; it would have to update its maximum limit every single passing day for sure.
But as much he was hated; there are a lot of interesting facts about Adolf Hitler that are enlisted by numerous historians.
Adolf Hitler (2nd Aug 1934- 30th April 1945) was a German politician who was born in Australia. Along with being the chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945; he was also the leader of the Nazi party and Fuhrer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. He is considered the most evil person in the history of mankind. A satan in the form of human; Hitler had an ego of the size of Mount Everest.

The word “Hitler” has become the synonym of evil and dictator; but this may surprise you that this could not have been the original last name of Adolf. In 1877, Hitler’s father changed his own lat name in 1877. If he would not have; Hitler’s name would have been ‘Adolf Schicklgruber’. Think about the consequences anyone had to face if he would have misspelled or mispronounced his name at that time!

Well; it can be a betrayal from the perspective of Hitler but it is quite hard sticking by the side of such an evil.

It has also been found that William was threatening and blackmailing Adolf of selling embarrassing stories about the family if he (Adolf) doesn’t help him by improving his “personal circumstances”. Quite amazing a fact it is about Hitler that even his family was conspiring against him.

He loved spending on luxurious things or opulence (clothes, cars, champagne etc) while on the outside he portrayed himself as “a man of people”.

Hitler was so much adamant on wiping the traces of Jews off the earth; that he decided to collect thousands of Jewish artifacts.
