Hitler to lose his citizenship???

Postby stomperrob » Mon Mar 19, 2007 7:21 pm

Yes, some folks in Germany are debating as to whether they should revoke his German citizenship seeing as he was really Austrian after all!
Like it's gonna make some kinda difference? Some people have too much time on their hands! It's going to be voted on in May.

London, Mar 13: The mention of Hitler has always been a taboo for the Germans ever since the victorious Allies made the German public aware of the realities of the Holocaust the Fuhrer and his Nazi fanatics did in the name of making the Fatherland racially pure.

Now, Germans are contemplating taking it a step further, revoking Adolf Hitler of his German citizenship 62 years after his death.

Austrian-born Hitler assumed German citizenship in 1932, a year before he was appointed chancellor of Germany.

He lived in Germany from 1912 and served in the Kaiser’s army during World War I.

But citizens of Braunschweig, which granted Hitler his German status, is now asking Social Democrats to make a "symbolic step" against the Nazi leader and revoke his citizenship.

Isolde Saalmann, who represents the city, said she wanted to "sever the city's notorious connection with the Nazi leader".

"We want to clear this up once and for all," she said.

However, not all are in favor of the motion.

"Dead is dead and you can't take anything more away then," the Daily Mail quoted an official of the Lower Saxony justice ministry as saying.

The plans also run contrary to German law. Citizenship cannot be revoked if a person would be left stateless, which would be the case with Hitler, who had surrendered his Austrian passport on becoming a German citizen.

A final decision will be made in May. (ANI)

It's a bit too late IMO. Hitler will always be associated with Germany.
The cake is a lie.

Oh I'm sure Austria would welcome their favorite Nazi back with open arms. ;-7 :-b

It doesn't really matter where he had citizenship, he will always be thought of as a German. Its kind of like Osama Bin Laden. He is actually Saudi but everyone thinks he is Afghani.

He was one of there most brave and decorated (if I'm not mistaken) soldiers from WWI without even fighting, he was brave in his actions, and for that little bit alone he should remain a German. His atrocities no matter how inhuman can not just erase what he did good for them. Gah why are the following this new ideal of the U.S. to regret our past.

I thought it was made quite clear that bin Laden is Saudi, being rich and all. I actually don't know anyone who thinks he's from Afghanistan. :-?
