Was there a reason that is not common knowledge?

    He didn't hate them. He just factually described them.

    Hitler and others hate Jewish people because Jews believe they are the chosen ones (by God). Germans believed the same thing.

    Not common knowledge?

    My theory has always been that it was based on a complex from one singular event, and THAT theory is based on a theory or theories I've read.

    You just never know.

    If a person goes through even one bad experience at just the worst time they sorta never let it go.

    That doesn't justify their reaction, though.

    He, and other Germans and Europeans for hundreds of years before Hitler, were influenced by Reformation leader Martin Luther. He wrote a called book "On the Jews and Their Lies", read third paragraph, it sounds like a description of The Holocaust but it was written 400 hundred years before it happened.

      No, it doesn't "sound" like that at all. Here's a good idea: Try actually reading it.

    Actually no, the reasons are common knowledge.

    No, he was just a stupid anti-semite.

      He was an anti-semite, but certainly not stupid. Just not university educated.

    Jews were hated all through the middle ages and up to the Protestant Reformation. When Martin Luther started his church in Germany, he met with local Jewish leaders and expected them to join him since he had 'reformed' everything they didn't like about the Roman Catholic church. When they didn't, he was apparently very angry and wrote some really nasty things about the Jews. So 300 years later, anti-semitism was already a big thing in Germany.

    Hitler didn't just hate Jews, he hated anyone who wasn't Aryan. But Jews had done pretty well in Germany and big banks and financial institutions were mostly owned and run by Jews. So they were a convenient scapegoat.

    We are seeing kind of the same thing today with Trump and Hispanics. Hispanics aren't the problem, and down-on-their-luck seekers of sanctuary certainly aren't the problem. But Trump implies that they're the cause of all our trouble, that they are an 'emergency'. He doesn't plan to just exterminate them all (well, not yet) but Hitler didn't want to do that at first.

    Adolf Hitler pursued a career in artistry. He especially loved to paint intricate landscapes of wildlife. He, however, was born with a very small nose and so he could not smell the flowers which held such beauty. For this reason, he placed flowers in the gas chambers, just before the Chlorine gas was released. For a few moments, the Jewish people understood his suffering. And then they died which sucks.

    No, the reasons are incredibly common knowledge. You were probably taught them in several of your history classes. This is why paying attention in school is so important.

    Yes, actually. I watched a documentary some years ago that explained how his mother's family were Jewish and treated her and him terribly because she married his father, a non-Jew. Much of his hatred came from how his mother's family treated him and how they behaved when he was a young boy.

      This is an example of the sort of tripe that gets peddled as "history" on rubbish like the "History Channel."
