Hitler wanted to kill Jews because of what he had experienced in his previous years; His father treated him badly - so he wanted to treat others badly.

Also, when Adolf Hitler was in Vienna, he saw rich Jews running big department stores and other businesses - he was an outsider and later in life he payed back the Jews for this.

Another reason is because he enjoyed war so much - he found warmth and friendship when he joined the army. He won medals for bravery and fought hard, until he was badly gassed in 1918. Germany's defeat in WW1 left him bitter and he wanted revenge..

These are all the reasons why he killed people (mainly the Jews).. hope i helped:)
