Hitler's German citizenship may be revokedBreaking News
Deutsche Welle Online reported Monday that a low-ranking official in the state of Lower Saxony, Isolde Saalmann, had convinced her colleagues from the governing Social Democratic Party to file a request to check whether the German citizenship given to Austrian-born Hitler in 1932 can be rescinded.
Hitler's application to become a German national was granted in Braunschweig, the city where he had lived since 1912 and fought for Germany in World War I, a move that enabled his notorious future career in German politics.
Saalmann told a German newspaper it would be a strong symbolic signal if the state would take posthumous action.

Seems rather late to revoke Hitler's German citizenship. Better to keep it, as a reminder of the failure of other German citizens to repudiate this man earlier than 1945.
And I would say the same to my fellow Americans who might now wish to be rescind George Bush's citisneship.
