Nazi tyrant Adolf Hitler”s first home “getting demolished”


Authorities announced they will remove Hitler”s birth-place and build more buildings on the same spot.

Austrian law-makers hope that destroying the home will stop it being a “shrine” for neo-Nazis.

Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka said a committee of experts decided that the house in Braunau-am-Inn, north of Salzburg, should be destroyed.

A new building will be put in its place for administrative or charitable purposes, Austrian newspaper Die Presse reported.

The leader of the Third Reich was born in the home in 1889.

Hitler”s birthplace has been a problem for the town for years as the previous owner refused to sell the place.

Austrian taxpayers have been paying more than £4,000-a-month rent to the woman who owns the building for years, just to keep it empty.

During the Third Reich it was a place of pilgrimage for Nazis.

But after the war it was used for various uses including a library and a storeroom.
