Hitler parents' tombstone removed to deter neo-Nazis

VIENNA (Reuters) - The tombstone marking the grave of Adolf Hitler's parents was removed from an Austrian cemetery this week to deter neo-Nazi commemorations of the German dictator.

The owner of the grave in Leonding - an unidentified woman that Austrian media said appeared to be a distant relative of Hitler's father, Alois - asked to have the stone removed, the town's mayor, Walter Brunner, said on Friday.

"The site was not constantly being visited but things happened now and then, the last time late last autumn," he said, referring to "various actions by die-hards".

An Austrian newspaper said someone had decorated the grave site at that time with Nazi symbols. A similar incident happened on the 120th anniversary of Hitler's birth in 2009.

The Oberoesterreichische Nachrichten (Upper Austrian News) said German neo-Nazis had held vigils at the grave of customs official Alois Hitler, who died in 1903, and his third wife, Klara, Adolf Hitler's mother, who died four years later.

Representatives of the Upper Austrian town of 27,500 discussed the matter with church and security officials and concluded the grave marker should go if the owner agreed, Brunner said.

"The pastor told me she also didn't want the grave to be used or abused for this," he said, adding he did not know or want to know where the tombstone now was.

How low can they go?  As far as I'm concerned this is grave desecration, plain and simple. They were innocents as well.  Alois and Klara had nothing to do with the movement.  They were long dead before anyone ever heard of Nazis and National Socialism.

This occurred back in 2012, but I just heard about it recently.  Still, the liberal left hits a new low.  I wonder how they would react if someone wanted to move the graves of Marx and Engels to an undisclosed location?

Dan 88!


  1. Well, I agree that Alois and Klara Hitler had nothing to do with the National Socialist movement at the time because, they were already passed on. But this article clearly says... That a Hitler family member made this request.

    The History Channel, Netflix and a few others have documentaries with direct descendants claiming how "horrible" the Nazi Regime was.

    This story is unlike stories of Rudolf Hess's grave, or Commander Rockwell's grave being destroyed by the enemy - because they don't want "idiotic", neo-Nazis visiting and paying their respects. - but here we have a "family member" making the request.

    This is just another example of the brainwashed WHITE GUILT train. Huh, I still don't feel a tad bit "guilty" here in the 21ST. Century because, Thomas Jefferson owned a slave. Jefferson also treated his slaves like Kings and made sure they had everything they needed. Let's not forget WHO, started the entire slavery thing and WHO, beat slaves! Slavery is still going on today. It's a huge business if you're name is Islam.

    Anyway. I wouldn't go out of my way to move a grave site just because, a bunch of "radicals" wanted to visit it a few times a year.

    1. You are completely right.

      And a family member did request it. It is not just an example of White guilt, but family guilt as well.

      I've said this many times. I will never take any responsibility for anything an ancestor of mine ever did. I'm responsible for my own actions and no one else's. Well, except any minor children I might have, but not the actions of an adult.

      Dan 88!
