Archive/File: people/h/hitler.adolf/family/incest-in-the-family Last-Modified: 1997/01/11 "The first clues to a possible Jewish origin of Hitler came from the manuscript 'In View of the Gallows,' written in his Nuernberg cell by Hans Frank ... In that work he revealed: Hitler's father was the illigitimate son of a woman with the last name Schicklgruber from Leonding near Linz, who worked as a cook in a Graz household... This cook called Schicklgruber, Adolf Hitler's grandmother, was employed in a Jewish household by the name of Frankenberger when she gave birth to her child. And this Frankenberger paid child support to Fraulein Schicklgruber on behalf of his approximately nineteen-year-old son for the period from the child's birth until his fourteenth year of age. There also was correspondence for years between these Frankenbergers and Hitler's grandmother, the overall tenor of which ... was that Fraulein Schicklgruber's illegitimate child had been conceived under circumstances that made the Frankenbergers responsible to pay child support... Accordingly, Hitler himself was one-fourth Jewish. Although this report has since proven incorrect, the results of Frank's research, as well as the essentially similar findings of an investigation by Himmler in August 1942, were reason enough for Hitler himself to have serious doubts about his purely Aryan origin. [...] First of all, these investigations decisively contradicted the allegation that Hitler's grandfather was Jewish. Since Alois Schiclgruber was born on June 7, 1837, a Jew named Frankenberger would have had to have been employed in Graz in that same year. Both preconditions, however, are untrue. Neither in the registry books of the Jewish synagogue nor in the "birth records" of other religious communities of Graz is a Frankenberger to be found. An Alois Schicklgruber appears for the first time in 1900; but since he was much younger than Alois Schicklgruber, he naturally is out of the question as Alois' father. The case is similar with Maria Anna Schicklgruber, who is recorded neither in the Graz "domestic register" nor in the "municipal register" for the time in question, which was impossible anyway, since she was living in Walfviertel in Lower Austria as a subject of the "Counts of Ottenstein." The most recent genealogical studies have cast additional light on the identity of Hitler's grandfather. These studies show that the illegitimate child Alois, whose family name Schicklgruber was not officially changed to Hitler until 1876, was never acknowledged as his own child by his alleged father Georg Hiedler -- a variant spelling was Huettler -- even when Georg married Maria Anna Schicklgruber in 1842. This rejection of paternity was understandable since Hitler's real grandfather happened to be not Georg but his brother Johann Nepomuk Huetter. Nepomuk, a wealthy married man, had apparently, by means of adequate subventions, convinced his brother Georg to marry the mother of his illegitimate child Alois, because this made it possible for him to bring up the little Alois as a child in his household without arousing the suspicion of his unsuspecting wife. This also readily explains why Alois spent his childhood and early youth not in his mother's house, but in that of his "uncle" Nepomuk Huettler. It also explains how after Nepomuk's death in 1888 Alois Hitler's financial situation took such a sudden turn for the better. For, as Maser at least tried to make plausible, after the legitimization of the name Hitler in 1876, Alois, as sole heir, apparently inherited his "uncle" Johann Nepomuk's entire fortune.
