Adolf Hitler's house could become immigrants' centreBreaking News
The house where Adolf Hitler was born could become a language school for immigrants, under new plans being considered by the Austrian government.
From the outside, the former guesthouse at 15 Salzburger Vorstadt could be just another historic building fallen on hard times. The town where it lies, Braunau am Inn, is a tiny backwater near Linz, where nothing much tends to happen.
But on April 20, 1889, Adolf Hitler was born here, and the debate over what to do with the house is so politically charged, it has gone all the way to the Austrian interior ministry.
"For us, given the meaning this building has, it's important to use it in a way that benefits people," Alexander Marakovits, a spokesman for the interior ministry told The Telegraph.
