Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThis master diploma thesis is concerned with Hitler's stay in Vienna during the period from 1908 to 1913 and the way in which his experiences from this period influenced the anti-Semitic views presented especially in his crucial work, Mein Kampf. The first, introductory chapter describes Vienna at the turn of the 20th century and also factors leading to the emergence of the specific atmosphere of this period, called fin de siècle. The focus of the second chapter is put on the issue of Jewish population in Vienna, i.e. a growing number of Jews in the city, the difference between the two basic groups of Jews (east and west), and especially the sorts of anti-Semitism which could be encountered in Vienna at that time. The third, last chapter is dedicated to Adolf Hitler, his life before his arrival to the capital, and his way of life and occupation in Vienna. The last part of the chapter is focused on the anti-Semitic quotations in Mein Kampf and their probable sources in Hitler's Viennese experiences. The aim of the thesis is to determine how Hitler's stay in Vienna influenced his later anti- Semitic attitude.
