What if Hitler fulfilled his dream of becoming an artist? What would our world look like today?
"He wished to study art, for which he had some faculties, but he twice failed to secure entry to the Academy of Fine Arts."
Adolf Hitler was born in Austria in 1889. Many know him as the fierce leader of Germany during World War II. However, his initial goal in life was far from leading a political life. Rather, he dreamed of becoming an artist. He spend many of his younger years struggling to be accepted in the world of art, but to no avail. After many failed attempts of being admitted into the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he changed his goal from becoming a famous artist to becoming an infamous dictator that changed the face of the world. What if they just accepted him into the world of art? What would our world look like today?
