The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

VIENNA: The house where Adolf Hitler was born will be razed and a new build­ing erected in its place, Aus­trian in­te­rior min­is­ter Wolf­gang Sobotka said on Mon­day, an­nounc­ing a fi­nal de­ci­sion on the prob­lem­atic struc­ture. Sobotka said he was fol­low­ing the rec­om­men­da­tion of an ex­pert com­mis­sion that in­cludes the head of Vienna’s Jew­ish com­mu­nity and lead­ing his­to­ri­ans. For years, Aus­tria has been mulling a so­lu­tion for the empty house to stop neo-Nazis from vis­it­ing. – dpa
