Adolf Hitler’s birth house in Braunau am Inn, Austria is set to be demolished by authorities.
In this house is where Hitler was born in 1889.
After demolition it will be replaced with a new building, the Austrian government has said.
Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka said on Monday that “a thorough architectural remodeling is necessary to
permanently prevent the recognition and the symbolism of the building.”
Ministry spokesman Karl-Heinz Grundboeck said this means the house, in the western town of Braunau, will
replaced with a new structure. Fears have been raised that the site could become a place of pilgrimage of Neo-Nazis and Mr Sobotka said the move will ensure any association with Hitler will be eliminated at the site.
