Hitler was not a anti-Semite by birth, but by indoctrination. Yes, he was bitter towards his Jewish grandparents not giving him an inheritance during his poverty years. But the real hatred was inspired when he joined the Nazi movement and more so as he was groomed for a leadership role in the party. To paraphrase, Hitler states in 'Mein Kampf' that he originally felt sympathy towards the Jews, but later after learning 'the truth' from the Nazi party leaders that Jews were the enemy of nationalist ethnic Germans. Hitler was a stooge, and in all reality Hitler was more concerned with war conquest than extermination of Jews, that was the passion of other Nazi party leaders, like Himmler, Hitler just gave them free reign.
