Would history have been far different if Hitler had had a power exceptionalist childhood?
Did Hitler suffer from PTCD? Sociopathy acquired from childhood traumas?
Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 to Alois and Klara Hitler. Adolf had five siblings, but only one lived past childhood:
- Gustav died at the age of two in 1887
- Ida died at the age of two in 1888
- Otto died within a year of birth in 1887
- Edmund died at the age of six in 1900
- His sister, Paula, was born in 1896 and lived until 1960
Alois was an Austrian customs official and he was able to provide his family with a comfortable lifestyle; however, he and his son did not get along. Alois had a terrible temper and had a general bad attitude. He was obnoxious and conceited, and he often took his problems out on his children.
Adolf Hitler’s childhood losses could have played a role in his later personality and style. He suffered quite a number of losses before his death. As we mentioned, four of his five siblings did not live past their childhood, although the majority of them died before he was even born. At the age of 14, his father Alois passed away.
On December 21, 1907, one of the greatest losses that Hitler felt in his life was the death of his mother to breast cancer.
