Viewers who feared the worst of ''Hitler: The Rise of Evil'' can relax. This CBS mini-series about Hitler's early years, which begins on Sunday night, does not make him sympathetic. On the contrary, the producers were so anxious not to blur their portrait of evil that they left out the banality of Hitler. His childhood in Linz, Austria, is shown in

MUSIC VIEW; IN THE END MAHLER'S TORMENTS WON OUT
NYTimes - about 33 years
A fat and fascinating book could be written about the role of psychoneurosis in musical creativity, centering around a few pivotal artists such as Wagner and Mahler. Did Mahler, for instance, compose so much great music because he spent his life under terrible mental tension or in spite of his problems? All we can do is speculate, but that is what

Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Klara Hitler
    FORTIES
  • 1907
    Age 46
    After experiencing chest pains that were keeping her awake at night, she finally consulted the family doctor, Eduard Bloch, in January 1907.
    More Details Hide Details She had been busy with her household, she said, so had neglected to seek medical aid. Dr. Bloch chose not to inform Klara that she had breast cancer and left it to her son Adolf to inform her. Dr. Bloch told Adolf that his mother had a small chance of surviving and recommended that she undergo a radical mastectomy. The Hitlers were devastated by the news. According to Dr. Bloch, Klara Hitler "accepted the verdict as I was sure she would – with fortitude. Deeply religious, she assumed that her fate was God's will. It would never occur to her to complain." She underwent the mastectomy at Sisters of St. Mercy in Linz whereupon the surgeon, Dr. Karl Urban, discovered that the cancer had already metastasized to the pleural tissue in her chest. Bloch informed Klara's children that her condition was terminal. Adolf, who had been in Vienna ostensibly to study art, moved back home to tend to his mother, as did his siblings. By October, Klara Hitler's condition had rapidly declined and her son Adolf begged Dr. Bloch to try a new treatment. For the next 46 days (from November to early December), Dr. Bloch performed daily treatments of iodoform, a then experimental form of chemotherapy. Klara Hitler's mastectomy incisions were reopened and massive doses of iodoform soaked gauze was applied directly to the tissue to "burn" the cancer cells.
  • 1906
    Age 45
    In 1906, Klara Hitler discovered a lump in her breast but initially ignored it.

  • 1892
    Age 31
    In 1892, Klara Hitler and her family took the train to Passau, where they settled down for the next two years.
    More Details Hide Details Edmund was born there on 24 March 1894. Paula followed on 21 January 1896. Edmund died of measles on 28 February 1900, at the age of five. Of her six children with Alois, only Adolf and Paula survived to adulthood. Klara Hitler's adult life was spent keeping house and raising children, for whom, according to Smith, Alois had little understanding or interest. She was very devoted to her children and, according to William Patrick Hitler, was a typical stepmother to her stepchildren, Alois, Jr. and Angela. She was also a devout Roman Catholic and attended church regularly with her children. When Alois died in 1903, he left a government pension. Klara sold the house in Leonding and moved with young Adolf and Paula to an apartment in Linz, where they lived frugally.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1884
    Age 23
    After the death of his second wife—Franziska Matzelsberger—in 1884, Klara and Alois married in 1885 in a brief ceremony held early that morning at Hitler's rented rooms on the top floor of the Pommer Inn in Braunau.
    More Details Hide Details Alois then went to work for the day at his job as a customs official. Their first son, Gustav, was born four months later, on 15 May 1885. Ida followed on 23 September 1886. Both infants died of diphtheria during the winter of 1886–87. A third child, Otto, was born and died in 1887. A fourth son, Adolf, was born 20 April 1889.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1876
    Age 15
    In 1876, 16-year-old Klara was hired as a household servant by her relative Alois Hitler, three years after his first marriage to Anna Glasl-Hörer.
    More Details Hide Details Although Alois' biological father is unknown, after his mother, Maria Schicklgruber, married Johann Georg Hiedler, Alois was officially designated as Hiedler's son. Klara's mother was Hiedler's niece Johanna Hiedler, who married Johann Baptist Pölzl, making Klara and Alois first cousins once removed.
