Hitler’s hometown finally withdraw his honors

Adolf Hitler is now formally persona non grata in the town of his birth.

The town council in the Austrian village of Braunau has unanimously decided to withdraw honorary citizenship from the community’s most infamous son, 78 years after the Nazi dictator was given the title.

Hitler was actually born in the tiny village of Ranshofen, next to Braunau, and became an honorary citizen of that hamlet in 1933. But Ranshofen became part of Braunau a few years later and thus is universally recognised as Hitler’s birthplace.

As such, Braunau council members determined to annul any and all honors Hitler had received that they did not feel necessarily dissolved upon his death in 1945. Some however argue that the vote was in fact unnecessary as the title did end with his suicide.

Braunau historians say they aren’t sure if the title was transferable from Ranshofen to Braunau. But the town council decided to abolish it late on Thursday…just in case.
