BACKGROUND:

In 1943, Dr. Walter Langer developed a secret psychological profile of Adolf Hitler for the United States government. It was an attempt by the government to gain insight into the mind of Hitler and how he might react as the Second World War progressed. Dr. Langer studied the available documents and other writings as well as personal interviews with associates of Hitler who fled Germany prior to the outbreak of war. Much of his work focused on the three formative periods of Hitler’s life; his youth; his down and out days in Vienna as a teenager; and his service in the German army during World War I. By reading and discussing the articles with the class, you will construct a psychological profile of Hitler by assessing the impact each of the three periods had on his life.
