Another account which has wide currency, especially in Austria, 
is that Hitler's father was a wealthy Viennese Jew and that 
Schicklgruber, a mean and ungentle petty official, was attracted 
to Klara Poelzl more by the handsome 'consideration' which she 
brought with her as a dowry than by any kindling of the heart.
This account also has it that Schicklgruber treated his wife 
very badly and that Adolf came to hate him, not only for the 
mean way in which he would bring up the circumstances of 
his birth but also for his physically brutal treatment of his 
mother. Terrible quarrels between the parents resulted.

Now according to this second account, which came to me 
directly from Austrtan sources, it is said that after Hitler's 
parents had died, and while he was living in Vienna, a penniless 
outcast without education or apprenticeship to a craft, he 
tried to get some support from his wealthy father. He was 
turned away empty-handed. A scene is described in which 
his fellow-outcasts followed him to the great house and 
sat outside waiting for him to come out, either to participate 
in the father's bounty, or to poor [sic] ridicule on their fellow-
outcast's discomfiture.        p. 27

His effiminate partiality for Milschspeise, cream-buns 
and all kinds of 'soft' foods and drinks, not to mention 
sentimental attitude in matters of musical and artistic 
taste - all these factors would favour the hypothesis of 
a strong emotional identity with a young mother whose 
passionateness had turrned against the father, and fell 
accordingly in enervating showers upon the son.        p. 27
