Adolf Hitler's birth house in Austria to be demolished

ANI  |  New York [USA] 

The house in Austria where Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler was born will be demolished and a new building will be erected in its place.

After years of legal wrangling, the Austrian Government will have the empty house demolished, the CNN quoted Interior Ministry spokesperson Andreas Großschartner as saying on Monday.

The house is located in front of Salzburger Vorstadt 15, Braunau am Inn, Upper Austria, the building where Hitler was born in 1889.

The three-story house is a shade of vanilla with shattered windows and dirt.

A new building in its place will erase links to the Nazi dictator's birthplace and stop the house from becoming a shrine for neo-Nazi pilgrimage.

A 13-member commission concluded that a vacant area is not advisable since it could imply a denial of Austrian history.

"I agree with the commission that a profound architectural redesign makes sense to permanently prevent both the recognition and the symbolic value of the building," Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka said in a statement.

A government bill will be discussed today for the building's expropriation.

After completion of the parliamentary process, officials will decide on its future. It's possible it may house a charity or government offices.
