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)
