There are a lot of works on it which you could find yourself and I hope there will be people replying to your thread. I read on of such researchers explaining why Hitler hated Jews. Period in Vienna affected him much. Once, when he failed his entrance exams, he was walking hungry, frustrated and in shabby clothes down the street and saw a shop window with bread and other tasty stuff. He entered the shop and the owner of the shop with a pleasant smile on his face asked him what Herr wished to buy. Hitler got furious and rushed out of the shop with words:'Dirty Jews has everything in our own country and Germans are poor and starting!'. That could be the beginning of his hatred, but we mustn't forget anti-semitism along with nationalism were on the rise in Europe in the beginning of 20th century, so he just used Jews and other minorities as scapegoats for his own failures and further as a means of rising nationalistic feelings among Germans. He was just a product of his time and surrounding, look up for where he had to live in ViennaThree years ago I opened a thread why Jews were hated and prosecuted throughout history, lots of answers but I would choose only one answer - jealousy.

That story is about as believable as my conquest of the Moon Empire. Making stuff over a dead man, especially a hated one, is so easy. Next time, someone will ask why did Hitler's grandmother marry a Jew instead of a Arabian one.

Solid post ^^.

Also I might add Hitler blamed the Jewish bankers for not supporting Germany enough during WW1 and he wasn't too keen on them after Germany went into a depression post WW1.

And then there is this ...

Utter rubbish!

All the contemporary evidence about Hitler's Vienna period suggests that he had no abnormal hatred of Jews at that time. In fact, he had quite a lot of dealings with Jews, eg as buyers of his paintings, that were quite amicable.

There is also no hard evidence of any hatred of Jews during his service as a soldier in the First World War, even though there is a lot of evidence of his having been a convinced German nationalist.

it was only in the aftermath of the First World War, particularly such events as the brief Bolshevik rule in Bavaria, that turned Hitler into an anti-Semite.

I believe the Officer who recommended Hitler for the Iron Cross was Jewish

Very simple. Because Germans and Jews were enemies. I think there are no other reasons. And no need in other reasons.

Hmm, Hitler wrote himself in his book his views were formed in Vienna and the reason he mentions exam juries were all Jews. One source claims that Kubichek, a friend of Hitler, later witnessed Hitler entered anti-semitic movement at the age of 19 being affected by such editions as Sturmer and Ostora in Vienna. Julius Streher and Georg Lanz formed his views with their racist idiocy, though Kubichek says Hitler was a moderate anti-semite in his early life.

The regiment where Hitler served was named List (colonel List) and an officer who recommended Hitler for the Iron Cross was Hugo Guttmann, a Jew who later escaped to America.

The first official proclamation of his anti-semitism dates back to 1919 when he wrote a letter to Adolf Hemlih - one of the heads of post-war German Army. He wrote in this letter...this letter was bought by a Meuseum of Holocaust in Los Angeles and everyone can witness his glaring anti-semitism and the first mentioning of the term Endlösung der Judenfrage and Saul Friedländer wrote that Hitler was thinking of this term in his youth, though he didn't specify the exact period.

Probably because his vision stood right against the jews situation.
Hitler's ideology was that of an Fatherland, while the jews had no fatherland and were scattered around the world.
