What if Hitler had been accepted into art school?

 

In his autobiography Mein Kampf Adolf Hitler described how, in his youth, he wanted to become a professional artist, but his aspirations were ruined because he failed the entrance exam of the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Hitler was rejected twice by the institute, once in 1907 and again in 1908.

So he did the next-best thing and became a dictator. And the rest, as they say, is history. Or is it?
