Extracts from this document...


Year 11 English - Biographical Essay: Adolf Hitler - The Unknown Story In 1889 a tyrant was born. A man whose name some elderly people still loathe to hear spoken aloud. That man was Adolf Hitler.

He was expressing his anger at Geli for committing suicide at the expense of millions of lives. Whilst Geli was alive, Hitler degraded their friendship and her trust by flirting with other women. This may also have been a factor in Geli's suicide. Most notably, are Hitler's exchanges with Eva Braun, whom he married not long after Geli's death.
