Vienna, Oct. 17 (Reuters): Austria plans to convert and possibly tear down the house Hitler was born in to prevent it becoming a pilgrimage site for neo-Nazis, the interior ministry said today.
Austria had already ordered the compulsory purchase of the building in Braunau am Inn, a town on the border with Germany where Hitler was born on April 20, 1889.
Now a committee of experts including historians, officials and the head of Austria's main Jewish organisation has recommended that a "thorough architectural rearrangement" be carried out.
There are houses in India too where people with similar views a Hitler were born.
I wonder when those houses will be pulled down.
I suppose that could be done only when there was a sensible government at the centre.
