When today my political opponents direct their loving attention to the examination of my life, following it back to those childhood days and discover at last to their relief what intolerable pranks this "Hitler" played even in his youth, I thank Heaven that a portion of the memories of those happy days still remains with me.
And though at that time I scarcely had any serious ideas as to the profession I should one day pursue, my sympathies were in any case not in the direction of my father's career.
In thus he resembled Leo Schlageter. But, though unwittingly, he had sown the seed for a future which at that time neither he nor I would have comprehended. They refuse to sing unGerman songs. In a short time I had become a fanatical 'German Nationalist,' though the term was not identical with our present party concept.
My conviction grew stronger and stronger that I would never be happy as a civil servant. The fighters, the lukewarm and the traitors. The Royal House Czechized wherever possible, and it was the hand of the goddess of eternal justice and inexorable retribution which caused Archduke Francis Ferdinand, the most mortal enemy of Austrian-Germanism, to fall by the bullets which he himself had helped to mold.

Indeed, when at length Germany began to divide into two spheres of power, this division itself became German history.
How it happened, I myself do not know, but one day it became clear to me that I would become a painter, an artist. The question of my profession was to be decided more quickly than I had previously expected. In this respect my attendance at the Realschule, which now commenced, made little difference.
Since in my free time I received singing lessons in the cloister at Lambach, I had excellent opportunity to intoxicate myself with the solemn splendor of the brilliant church festivals.
