What was Hitler`s father engaged in?
Alois Hitler (till 39 years - Shiklgruber) led active lifestyle. Besides service at customs where he was a senior ofitsialy, Alois liked to be on the apiary. There he spent all summer evenings. In Braunau - on - Inna he even specially rented apartment in the old city that without wasting time for a way home, to reach quicker the apiary in the neighboring valley.
When Alois Hitler lived with a family in Passau, it daily went on foot to other state - Austria - where it in the town of Haylbakh had bees. After pasechny works the head of family came back home late at night. To see more the son Adolf, he sometimes took the boy with himself on an apiary.
On June 25, 1895 Alois Hitler for health reasons ahead of schedule retired after forty years of service in customs. In 1898 it gets the house in the village Leonding that in four kilometers from Linz. It was the small clean small village which most of inhabitants was made by peasants and handicraftsmen. Likely, in Leondinge, in the twilight of the life, Alois Hitler found rest and reached a limit of the dreams: near the beautiful house, in a garden, it arranged an apiary. As historians specify, the father of the German Fuhrer even wrote articles concerning beekeeping for specialized magazines.
Leonding (from all Austrian residences) Adolf Hitler remembered kind words all life. Up to the death. And in Leondinge, by Adolf`s recognition, he began to perceive the world in the spirit of the father, willingly listened to his reasonings on bees, helped it on an apiary.
If not the sudden death of Alois Hitler which followed in 1903, then probably young Adolf would continue to comprehend craft of the bee-keeper under the leadership of the father further.

Yes, not without reason the Moscow mayor Yury Luzhkov likes to say that the beekeeper can only become the mayor (read - the big politician).
At my look, another is more interesting: what would be world history if Adolf Hitler becomes a bee-keeper?
The unexpected death of Alois Hitler, the former senior ofitsial of customs and the bee-keeper on calling, abruptly changed destiny of his son Adolf and, eventually, brought that into policy. But whether history of emergence of the German fascism was predetermined or, be Adolf Hitler a bee-keeper, everything in the world would develop differently?
There is no answer to this question, history does not suffer a subjunctive mood. And it is a pity.
