    Communism - an ideology created largely by Karl Marx, the key features are:
    - common ownership of the means of prosecution (e.g. Factories)
    - no social classes
    - abolition of money
    - abolition of the state

    Hitler didn't like communists because the Communist ideology didn't conform with his Nationalist ideology. Hitler viewed the communists as a threat to the German nation he was trying to build.

    He also arguably distrusted the internationalist aspect of communism - he disliked anything that gave people international links. He persecuted speakers of the international language Esperanto, for example.

    He also didn't like communism because he saw it as an invention by the jews. He often used the term Judeo-Bolshevism in propaganda when he invaded the USSR claiming they were defeating the forces of 'Judeo-Bolshevism'.

    Lots of Communists were Jewish such as Marx (the founder of modern day communism) and Trotsky, another influential communist.

    Hitler wasn't the only anti-communist politician at the time. Almost EVERYONE despised communism - in fact many countries such as Czechoslovakia and Finland were more worried about Communism rather than Hitler's national socialism and wanted France and Britain to oppose Stalin instead.

    Many in Britain wanted an alliance with Hitler against the communists.

    The idea of communism for many was a bad thing- if communism/socialism was spread throughout the world, politicians would cease to have any influence so it was their interest to oppose Communism like Hitler did.

    LeapingLucy Karl Marx never created communism. It was John d'Hupay. Karl Marx only wrote the Communist Manifesto. This just showed Marx's support and goals for communism.
