Hitler did numerous things that were wrong like killing Jews. Hitler was anti-sematic. he was influenced by what he saw in his daily life. He felt that Jews were communist and as some may know he is a fascist. he set out and killed many Jews a he could and nobody could really stop hi. the invasion of Czechoslovakia made it clear that Hitler would not stand for appeasement. Hitler began to conquer each of the European countries slowly one by one. France, Britain, and Canada thought that Hitler should be stopped before he tries to invade one of their countries.
