Austria passes bill to sieze Hitler's home

IANS  |  Vienna 

The internal committee of the Austrian National Council gave approval for the expropriation of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler's birth home from its current owner, media reports said.

Representatives from both parties of the coalition government as well as the Greens and NEOS parties gave their approval on Wednesday, for the bill put forward by interior minister Wolfgang Sobotka.

The decision moves government plans a step closer to make the building in Braunau am Inn in the state of Upper Austria "unrecognizable", Xinhua news agency reported.

Local media reported that the interior ministry now planned to consult both the governor of Upper Austria and the mayor of Braunau am Inn concerning the future use of the building.

The minister had already announced it would be open to plans from architectural firms as to how to transform the outward appearance of the building.

The primary goal is to prevent it from being a pilgrimage site for Neo-Nazis and the architectural changes intend to alter it from being a place of remembrance.
