The above picture is of a young child, still a baby. This boy was born on 20 April 1889, and although you wouldn’t think so from this picture, but this baby boy later became responsible for the deaths of millions.
You see this little boy is Adolf Hitler.
There is a questions which is often posed in psychology to determine if you are a psychopath. The question is “If you could travel back in time to April 20 1889. would you kill the infant Hitler?
I don’t think the stars could have predicted what this infant would do in later life.
Hitler’s father Alois Hitler was the illegitimate child of Maria Anna Schicklgruber. Alois was born in 1837 but the baptismal register did not show his father’s name. So, initially, Alois bore his mother’s surname, Schicklgruber. Johann Georg Hiedler married Maria Anna in 1842.
Maria Anna died in 1847 and Alois changed his baptismal register in 1876 by recording Georg Hitler (Johann Georg Hiedler) as his father. Thus he assumed the surname Hitler which is also spelled as Hiedler, Huettler or Hüttler. Hitler surname is presumably based on ‘one who lives in a hut’.
Hitler had 7 siblings, 3 of which died when they were still children.
For 36 years he was an Austrian citizen, for nearly 7 years he was stateless. He only had the German nationality for 13 years.
What if something would have happened to him at birth on that 20th of April 1889? How different would the world have been?
I do think that 20 April 1889 may just have been the worst day in history.
