So that Nazi Germany was an actual place in actual history that was led by a man with an actual past, and not a scene from a sci-fi video game where Nazis are the spawn of the devil hypnotizing the population with alien psy-weapons.

The most outstanding trait in my friend’s character was, as I had experienced myself, the unparalleled consistency in everything that he said and did.

Again and again I was filled with astonishment at how fluently he expressed himself, how vividly he managed to convey his feelings, how easily the words flowed from his mouth when he was completely carried away by his own emotions. Musical life in Linz in those days was on a remarkably high level; August Gollerich was the Director of the Music Society. He had to take special care of himself during the foggy and damp winters which prevailed in Linz. The bride has looked after ttie children ever since the death of ttie mother and ttiey are very fond of her, so that it may be justifiably assumed that the upbringing would be successful and ttie marriage a happy one.

I recall him always on the go. But his crucial early years, the years between leaving school and joining the Bavarian army are, in the language of one of his biographers [Thomas Orr, Das WarHitier- Revue, Munich,No. He needed the town, the variety and abundance of its impressions, experiences and events; he felt there that he had his share in everything; that there was nothing in which his interest was not engaged.

I was already playing with the idea of making music my life’s work when hard reality made itself felt.

What a lamentable job! Adolf had disappeared into the auyust depths of the Metropolis. With his contempt for everything pertaining to the body, sport, which was then coming into fashion, meant nothing to him. Amidst all this it also shows he remembered his humble roots kned those who stood by him. This is actually much more frightening than a portrait of an inhuman monster.

According to the enclosed death certificate ttie bridegroom has been a widower since 1 0th August of this year and is fattier of two infant children, a boy of two and a half Alois and a girl of one year and two monttis Angela for whose care he needs a woman-help as he, being a customs official, is away from his home the whole day and also often at night, and ttierefore hardly able to supervise the education and upbringing of ttie children.

For instance, his guardian, a peasant in Leonding called Mayrhofer, had got it into his head that he, Adolf, should learn a craft. He simply could not do otherwise and, leaving school, he embarked on the second path without looking back.

For some time, on fine days, he used to frequent a bench on the Turmleitenweg where he established a kind of openair study.

The Young Hitler I Knew by August Kubizek

A Carpet of Jacaranda. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Of course, I mustadmitthatAdolfs claims on me were boundless and took up te my spare time. A fascinating read offering a rare glimpse into the early years of Hitler’s life through the eyes of his only known childhood friend.

The Young Hitler I Knew

One very light and mild crease to the spine. What did you get out of it? Hitler moved out of the flat in November, without leaving a forwarding address; Kubizek did not meet his friend again until He could walk for hours without getting tired. This inclination to be dissatisfied with things as they were, always to change and improve them, was ineradicable in him. Here were born his first poems.
