Austria Considers Law to Seize Home Where Hitler Was BornBreaking News
tags: Hitler, Austrian, Braunau
The fate of Adolf Hitler’s birthplace in the picturesque Austrian border town of Braunau has been fiercely debated at least since victorious American G.I.s stopped the Nazis from destroying the house at the end of World War II.
Now Austria plans to end the dispute, drafting a law that would enable the government to seize the property and decide on its final use.
Discussions continue, said Karl-Heinz Grundböck, a spokesman for the Interior Ministry in Vienna, but a draft law is expected to go to Parliament by summer while a commission of experts considers the building’s fate.
