The Dictators: Hitler
POWER. CONTROL. TERROR. The centre points of any dictatorship. The need for power, the want for tyrannical control and the subsequent terror unleashed to achieve their goals make dictators some of the most fascinating figures to study in history. In this series we will be looking at some of the 20th century’s most notorious dictators, from their rise to power to their inevitable downfall. In this episode we look at the man responsible for the death of over 20 million people, a key aggressor in World War Two and the architect of the Holocaust, one of history’s most brutal dictators; Adolf Hitler. From his humble upbringing in Austria to leading the Nazi Party, Hitlers life saw a reign of terror descend over Europe like never before leading to some of the worst atrocities the world has ever seen.
