Nazi symboled vase laid on Hitlers parents grave


An unidentified visitor to a cemetery in Leonding, Austria, has placed a vase on the grave of Hitler’s parents, engraved with the word "unforgettable" and the letters "SS". According to the state office for protection, the visitor posed as a Viennese artists and "Hitler’s grandson".

An increasing number of German skinheads have held vigils around this grave. On Hitler’s 120th birthday, a large wreath was placed on the grave and on all saints day it was also lavishly decorated.

Only the owner of the grave, who is a distant relative of Hitler, can remove such homage however. "Saldy the catholic parish does not know who the woman is otherwise we would have been in contact", said Mayor Walter Brunner (SP).

Investigations will be continued by Brunner with the help of the head of state protection, Michael Tischlinger. According to the Mayor, Parish Priest, Kurt Pittertschatsche wishes to encourage a legal review in the diocese.  "We want to find out who the grave belongs to and how often such incidents have occurred" said Pittertschatsche.

For 74 year-old Hedwig Haberfellner who visited the grave of her husband in the cemetery yesterday, the most important thing is "that the graves look tidy". The parent’s grave in Leonding is visited by large numbers of tourists every year.
