It is also the cultural and political history of Vienna as Hitler encountered it during his critical formative years: the Vienna of immigrants, the unemployed and the homeless, and also of German Nationalism and antisemitism. Brigitte Hamann examines critically the few accounts of eyewitnesses and the many legends of Hitler's early years, bringing to light, for example, newly discovered letters and facts about his close contact with Jewish friends and benefactors. She also analyzes the influence of the politicians who determined Hitler's political path. This picture of the climate and milieu in which Hitler's character was shaped demonstrates, using a wealth of individual examples, that central elements in his world-view were acquired during his Vienna years.Read Less
