Hitler was not a one-man army (Killing the queen bee does not stop the other bees from stinging you)
The Germans weren't the only anti-semites that wanted to exterminate all Jews (Lithuanians, Poles, Ukrainians, Russians)

Stalin and many in the Soviet communist leadership had various 'final solution' plans for Jews as well

Going back in history and changing something will have lots of unexpected consequences.

Suppose you could go back and kill Hitler before he became the leader of Germany. Even better, suppose you could prevent his conception and thereby accomplish the task without taking a life.

What would the results be? Had there been no holocaust, would Israel exist as a country? What other things would be different? Would you and I have been born? Etc. Nobody but Hashem can possibly know.

I would either try to get him enrolled in the art school he wanted to study at or, find him some kind of other work, and/or find him a wife to have a family with. He would have been able to struggle to make a living like the rest of us, and/or have a wife and children to abuse.
