    Default More Airbrushing Of History? Braunau am Inn To Get New Car Park.

    Well not quite.... But it's been decided by the Austrian authorities that Hitler's birth place in Braunau am Inn is to be demolished, the site will then be redeveloped. The plan still has to be formalised in legislation and voted on in the Austrian Parliament. But the Interior Ministry said demolition was recommended by a government appointed commission that included several historians.

    With the Social Democratic and People's Party in the majority, and most opposition parties expected to support the plan, it's said the demolition was likely no more than a formality.

    Hitler's birth house to be demolished to prevent neo-Nazi pilgrimage - Europe - Haaretz - Israel News | Haaretz.com

    So, is Austria still in denial about another unsavoury link to it's nazi past and as such destroying an important and necessary part of history, or taking the correct route by wiping out another link to Hitler and his regime that has become a place of pilgrimage in recent years for neo-nazis and their vile doctrine?? Discuss.

    Yes Ned...I read that today.

    I have much to say about this idiocy but will keep my mouth shut to avoid offending those with thin skin.

    If it hasn't been a problem being a neo Nazi mecca in the past then what makes them think it will be in the future? Follow the future money trail on this one. I will be surprised if it turns into something for charity or community events like the government is stating.. JMO..
