  1. I would not blame Hitler on his childhood myself.
    However I might look at his First World War experiences closely.

  2. Who knows how to correlate early child events to later personality? Answer: NO ONE. Yes, I know, there are a lot of opinions on this.

    Here is what one author guessed:
    He was a very bright child and was very popular at school, but often clashed with his father over his interest in fine arts. This led to Hitler’s detachment from his family and he became a reclusive, discontented, resentful child, with an unstable temperament towards his father.

    He was deeply attached to his lenient, hard-working mother, whose battle against cancer and consequent demise in December 1908 was a shattering blow to his already upset life.

  3. I agree with Professor Damon, by the way. Personally, I think Hitler suffered from profound mental illness throughout his adult life, and that generally cannot be blamed on childhood.
