HITLER'S FAMILY: IN THE SHADOW OF THE DICTATOR -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
When the First World War broke out, he volunteered -- not for the Austrian, but for the German army.
For the first time, he denied his family.
An excerpt from Erna Hitler's Chronicle:
[Erna Hitler] When his fellow soldiers asked him about his wife, children, parents or fiance, he dodged the question, or just said he had no one left.
[Narrator] After the war, he tried his luck in politics as an agitator for the radical right, stirring up hatred against Jews and against Democracy.
