DNA test reveals Hitler relative

Published on March 1st, 2010 | by Admin


A DNA test has proved that a poor man in Austria is one of the last living relatives of Adolf Hitler.

The 46-year-old farmer, thought to be a cousin of the former German dictator, was horrified to learn the blood of the ‘greatest criminal’ is in his veins.

But the man, tracked down by Belgian journalist Jean-Paul Mulders, is not alone.

Mr Mulders, who persuaded the man to take a mouth swab test, says there are as many as 39 others living in the remote Waldviertel region of Austria where he comes from.

The area was home to Hitler’s grandmother, Anna Schicklgruber, father Alois and mother Klara.

After the end of the Second World War, the name Hitler completely vanished as those who bore it had it changed.

Many families there still bear similar names, though, like Hiedler and Huettler.

How did the journalist get Hitler’s DNA?

The journalist had previously garnered some Hitler DNA covertly by taking a serviette dropped by one of three known Hitler descendants who live on Long Island, New York.

One of them, Alexander Stuart-Houston, 61, a grand-nephew of Hitler, was trailed for seven days before the dropped the litter which Mulders said led him to the relation in Austria.

Am I the only one who feels this is a gross invasion of privacy? Post your thoughts here.

    No, I don’t feel it is. I believe it is in the public interest to verify the claim of Hitler’s suicide ( or not.)

    Hitler may not have died in that Bunker and the evidence seems to point in that direction. Many people died as a result of the Nazi Party’s crimes against humanity.

    I think we still need to ride this thing down to a verifiable conclusion, if at all possible. We owe it to the dead from WWII.

    paula-hitler’s half sister died in 1950 and is burried in germany–this would be enough for a dna test–however the russians soldiers in east germany moved the “so called casket” with “remains” of hitler to various locations — so that no one could perform a future dna test-if hitler did escaped to new schwabenland -southpole–unnoticed– this would be a slap in the face to the allies–especially to the americans.–that’s why this is a cover up.– look up on GOOGLE— new schwabenland–UfO also “Operation Highjump” with Admiral Richard Byrd–this will clear some of the mysteries.
