Interior Ministry plans to remodel Hitler’s birthplace

Braunau is known as the birthplace of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. In order to prevent visits by right-wing extremists to the border town between Upper Austria and Bavaria, the Interior Ministry has long been planning to redesign Hitler’s birthplace in the city center. The building will house a police station and a human rights training center.

According to the police, the man from Brandenburg stated that he had simply taken a break in Braunau on the way back after a vacation in Hungary.
