Hitler’s home a cop shop
THE house where Adolf Hitler was born will be turned into a police station after years of debate over how best to prevent it becoming a pilgrimage site for neo-Nazis.
Having carried out a compulsory purchase of the house in Braunau am Inn, a town on the border with Germany, Austria will invite architects to submit plans for a redesign of the building.
It will house the local police force’s offices.
“The house’s future use by the police should send an unmistakeable signal that this building will never again evoke the memory of National Socialism,” Interior Minister Wolfgang Peschorn said.
