…Adolf Hitler’s art speaks for itself. It may well be that he was not accepted at the art school in those times because he had no society connections.
Contrary to defamation, he was also very intelligent, well read, insightful, humane, besides being brave and tough. In short, he was a Renaissance Man! Because of his parents’ death early in his youth, he lost much of the financial support for further education after his artistic education plans fell through. He had no choice but to work as a day laborer until he had some success with selling some of his art. His misfortunes as a young man worked to his advantage as they gave him insight into the plight of the working man. The laborers’ struggle in Austria (formerly German territory) drove his desire to be a leader for the working people and unite stolen German territory (Austria) with the Reich so that ethnic Germans would be under the protection of their fatherland.
