VIENNA — Austrian government authorities have chosen to change the home where Adolf Hitler was naturally introduced to a base for a philanthropy, not tear down the property as some requested.
Thursday’s choice comes a day after officials overwhelmingly endorsed an Interior Ministry bill to confiscate the proprietor, who had declined to offer the void working in Braunau am Inn, a town on Austria’s outskirt with Germany.
Commonplace senator Josef Puehringer says decimating the structure would have powered allegations of “tearing down a bit of oppressive history.”
Rather, authorities need to rebuild the property’s exterior to dispense with its draw as a holy place for admirers of the Nazi tyrant, who was conceived in the house in 1889.
Puehringer says the house will be offered to an organization running a workshop for handicapped individuals.
