Hitler's House for Sale

By November 11, 2009

Follow me on:

Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889 in a room on the first floor of the building at Salzburger Vorstadt 15 in Braunau-am-Inn, Austria. At the time, Hitler's parents rented a room upstairs in the building. During the Nazi era, Martin Bormann declared the building a national monument.

The building is now being put up for sale for an estimated $3.3 million (£2 million). Town officials are worried that neo-Nazis might buy the property and turn it into a shrine to Hitler. Although the town officials would like to buy the property, they currently lack the funds to meet the asking price.

For more information about Hitler's birthplace, read this Mail Online article.
