Adolf Hitler – Führer
20.04.1889 – 30.04.1945 Leader of the German Nazi party and, from 1933 until his suicidal death in 1945, dictator of Germany
He rose from the bottom of society to conquer Germany and then most of Europe. Riding on a wave of European fascism after World War I, he built a Fascist regime unparalleled for barbarism and terror. His rule resulted in the extermination of about six million Jews. On April 30, 1945, on Hitler’s orders, he and Eva Braun were cremated with diesel fuel in the Reich Chancellery garden above his bunker.
